Track by Track Review

Surf-O-Matic dotdotdotdot
Space Spy Surf (Instrumental)

"Surf-O-Matic" sports big twang chords and a mean garage riff over thump and thunder. This is a loud and powerful track that's out to get you. There's a vocal that circles through extreme effects, making it more like an instrument than words. Swimming whammy and power.

Ativar Retrofoguetes! dotdotdotdot
Space Spy Surf (Instrumental)

Grumble and circling tweakery, a spy guitar line and an ominous bass line over manic drums. Haunting and cool, with soundtrack chorus. The second half is pumped up into a space punk spy frenzy.

As Concubinus Mecanicas Do Doutor Karzov dotdotdotdot
Space Spy Surf (Instrumental)

Disturbed keys and swirling dark space inversions create the scene in which the guitar plays a surfable and powerful line. Big and slightly weird, like maybe Joe Meek might be up to where ever he ended up after his untimely demise.

O Avanco Da Robotica dotdotdot
Space Spy (Instrumental)

Dissonant and angular, the plaintiff cry of "O Avanco Da Robotica" is on the downside of robot love. It's like a spy in the garage of night, where wayward robots rule.
