artworkThe email that preceded this led me to believe that there were a couple of surfy tunes on this advance CD-R, but with one exception, this is really good stuff, and more surfy than advertised! I found myself listening to it several times just 'cuz it sounded good, forgetting I had to write a review. Watch out for a full release that will cross many boundaries.
Picks: Cement Shoes, Wildcat 325, Gemini, Q

Track by Track Review


Cement Shoes dotdotdotdot
Crunchy Surf (Instrumental)

Crunchy surf tune with an infectious melody line. Dry guitars. Very cool listening.

Wildcat 325 dotdotdot
Crunchy Surf (Instrumental)

Crunchy surf, infectious melody line, dry guitars, ominous.

Gemini dotdotdotdot
Plucky Surf (Instrumental)

Glissandoes open and the tune is quite cool. A bit of Nashville and delayed notes. Plucky and memorable.

Q dotdotdot
Spy Surf Blues (Instrumental)

Slow spy-ish tune with nice changes and very cool vibes. A touch of the Blues.
