|This is the first demo from Saint Petersburg (Russia) surfnauts the Propellers. Two fine tracks, well recorded, and well written. I'm looking forward to a whole album from these guys.|
Picks: Jane, Black Sea Trip
Track by Track Review
Very moody reverbed drums back a fluid island girl song that's very pretty. "Jane" has a cool melody line, and the drums are really nice. The slow double picked dribbling surf runs are really cool. Delicate rhythm guitar and smooth bass round out this fine song!
"Black Sea Trip" is an aggressive-lite track with drive and edge. A bit Los Straitjackets referenced, this edgy number is bouncy and way fun, with a hint of chicken bop and a dose of surf.
