Blue Surf (Instrumental)
This is a really cool, track. It may be dry, but the melody is centered around a very infectious middle eastern riff. Glissandos, dueling guitars, and solid bass and drums work in concert to capture your attention. The dry textures sound very mid eighties LA new wave surf, a sound that passed all too soon. Vibrato edge and charming structures, and great string bending.
