The Razorblades - Shake Your Pony Tailsdotdotdotdotdot
artworkThis is a superb ep, not that you'd expect any less from The Razorblades. Pure, unadulterated surf with twango and glissando ecstasy. Highly recommended!

Looking For Adventure dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

What a great track! Infectious beat, rich guitar tone, a great melody, and wonderful energy. "Looking For Adventure" moves right along, sports cool glissandos from both guitars, and has great drums. Interestingly enough, the bass is what used to be called felt but not heard. It doesn't stand out, but you know it's there holding everything together. The guitars are wonderful.

Shake Your Pony Tails dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a mid tempo, somewhat stomping song, with cool chokes and glissandos, and a slightly countrified edge. "Shake Your Pony Tails" is fun and spunky, and really connects. Very cool!

Surf (Instrumental)

twang is right. Twangin' whammified chords on one side and heavy chords on the other. The melody features lots of brief glissandos and superb surf charm. great drums, solid bass, and a very compelling sound. Wonderful!
