Track by Track Review
Middle eastern motifs glide across the sultry desert sands as "Desert Storm" opens. Once on board, the song develops into a marvelous Bedouin surf epic. The fine melody and desert drone are quite strong. Rhythmic and exotic!
Softly approaching dribbling sci-fi scenery with lead-bass duets, Planet Creep meander through an surf-spy-sleuth epic with lots of stray elements and dissonant edge.
Dark twang riffs and reverb splash with island whammy meander about a quirky sci-fi setting, amped by chunky fuzz verses and a relentless beat. "Mars Mothership" seems to grow on you.
