Picks: Surf Spyder, Full Moon Over Balboa Beach
Track by Track Review
This is a very fine light weight muted surf instro with fairly dry tone and whammy. The minimal melody is really just a run, but the way it's used in the arrangement is really very nice. The break is splashy and non-melodic. "Surf Spyder" is quite a nice little intro!
Full Moon Over Balboa Beach
"Full Moon Over Balboa Beach" is a melodic and rich number with a simple and pleasing sound. This is a fun and splashy song with a warm disposition and big whammy. The melody is familiar, but without writers' credits I can't resolve the question.
