|Two fine sides from The Marauders of Tarentum, Pennsylvania. As happened more often than you'd expect, the b-side is way cooler than the a-side. Great record!|

Track by Track Review
Surf Rock (Instrumental)
This is another fifties progressional, without benefit of melody. It is nicely delivered, with fine guitar picking, especially the delicate and precise used of played out chords. It has an air of surf, maybe even a flair for the waves, but its heart is in the fifties. It is infectious in a strange sorta way.
This is a superb! The melody is infectious and ripe for remembering. It has the sort of catchiness that "Brazil" has, but "Kosta Rica" is less slick and more garage perfect. trembling guitar, reverb, splash, and great charm. I love this!
