Track by Track Review


Die Lustige Bombe dotdotdot
ElectroSurf (Instrumental)

This track features a swirly guitar line and bouncy backtrack. While very tweaky, "Die Lustige Bombe" is a pretty normal track. Aggressive guitar chops and energy.

Geheimagent dotdotdot
Sequenced Surf 'n' Turf (Instrumental)

Phil Sloane's TV theme "Secret Agent Man" features real guitar and sequenced everything else. The keyboard modulated chorus makes you immediately realize this is machine espionage.

Popcorn A Go-Go dotdotdot
Sequenced Surf 'n' Turf (Instrumental)

You can't play sequenced music without playing Gershon Kinglsey's "Popcorn A Go-Go." Not very inventive or original, though the reverb on the lead in interesting.

Buzz A. dotdotdot
Sequenced Surf 'n' Turf (Instrumental)

This is a grode cover of Robert Johnson and Punchdrunks' "Buzz Aldrin." Not that the original was clean or anything, but Mikrowelle have dirty up the impossibly dirty. Unexpected!

Beat Party dotdotdot
Sequenced Surf 'n' Turf (Instrumental)

"Beat Party" is a great track. The melody is very familiar, probably has another name. It's all tweaky stuff with Duane Eddy-ish guitar, but it brings a grin and is well thought out.
