artworkAnother fine set of instros from the Sandblasters. As before, the writing continues to get better and better. This set is more fluid, with the sense of ensemble multiplying the sophistication in the writing.
Picks: Ray Gun Smasher, Toothless Cannibal

Ray Gun Smasher dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Spanish flair and dramatic lurking danger are found within this eloquent track. It uses some familiar riffs, dramatic changes, stylized visions, and intellectual structures. A nice tune, assembled like something from an artier period. Very good listening.

Toothless Cannibal dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Great title! Images of being gummed to death. An ominous riff oriented dramatic structure with very inventive arranging make this a fine art surf piece. Is this the dawn of a new sub genre? Nice track.
