artworkThis four-song demo from Reverb Galaxy is a debut effort with excellent writing and picturesque sound. The songs sound like their titles, the arrangements are very effective, the drums are tribal, and the reverb is alluring.

Track by Track Review


Balkan Stomp dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Balkan Stomp" features an infectious rhythm and solid beat, and an intriguing melody line. It has an old world feeling, but also calls to the surf quite admirably. Spirited and nicely arranged.

10 Miles To Nagshead dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a lovely easy going song with a rich sunset vibe. Tasteful, gentle, island beautiful, and very fluid. Great for an evening's walk along the coastline of your imagination.

Dark Pulsar dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Speedy and sporting the kind of melody line that Hava Nagila makes possible. Dark and forbidding, yet calling you to the curl. "Dark Pulsar" is a splendid instrumental with an infectious tribal thunder.

Sinister Island dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The island of danger lures you in with its beauty and mysterious haze. "Sinister Island" is beautiful in the way femme fatales are, lurid, enticing, seductive, and ultimately fatal. Cool song.
