Track by Track Review


A Maldicao Do Surf Sumerio dotdotdot
Near Surf (Instrumental)

Sampled weirdness precedes a an edgy rock instro with a circulating riff and dark energy. Dangerous and angry, "A Maldicao Do Surf Sumerio" sports an understated intensity that creates nervousness.

Tropical dotdotdotdot
Near Surf (Instrumental)

Dark double picked intensity and panoramic chords, along with throat-sung cries of waves of the tropics create an angry and threatening vision of curl gone bad. It's not a bad hair day, just a dangerous and miserable place to surf.

La Diabolica dotdotdotdot
Near Surf (Instrumental)

A rough glissando grinds the opening of a harsh riff surfer that shouts for rescue from the pits of Hell. "La Diabolica" is quite cool, and the samples even add to it, which is quite rare.

Os Olhos Sangrentos Da Mae Madrid dotdotdotdot
Near Surf (Instrumental)

Reverbed chop, a dark mood, and oceanic imagery of short boards and storm surf. "Os Olhos Sangrentos Da Mae Madrid" is an aggressive track with a dark sound and fury. It's the sort of thing you'd hear just before you head into the rocks!

A Danca Do Surfista Tantasma dotdotdotdot
Near Surf (Instrumental)

This is a fine and fluid uplifting surf epic with an optimistic if not bright sound. Some delightful muted reverb and lovely double picked lines. fast paced in a coastal highway search-for-surf kind of way. Excellent for that topdown drive!

There's A Pazuzu In My Garage
Near Surf (Instrumental)

After significant sound effects, "There's A Pazuzu In My Garage" evolves into a dark fuzzy dungeonous song with double picked danger and a circulating guitar line. It's engaging and quite spunky!
