Track by Track Review


Mambo Mutant dotdotdotdot
Surf Funk (Instrumental)

On the fast side, "Mambo Mutant" is edgy and sports exotic percussion. Amazing blends of surf and throb and the tropics. Not melodic, but infectious none the less, and there are a few glissandoes for extra measure. Big twang intensity.

Rustical Cuban Cigars dotdotdotdot
Surf Funk (Instrumental)

Vibrato and chunky funk with horns added for suaveness. "Mambo Mutant" throbs and grumbles with vibrating charm and thunder. Mid tempo power surge with a relentless hypnotic rhythm.
