Track by Track Review


Marabella dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

Big thick chords ring in a heavy surf epic with great drums and liquid guitar lines. "Marabella" is angular at times, but also fluid and melodic. Quite powerful!

003466 dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

Big snare rockin' drums and perfect bass compliment simple effective guitar lines. The writing is very good, taking full advantage of a catchy riff and thick textures.

Cecilia Ann dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

The Surftones' "Cecilia Ann" is done Pixies style, with heavy kick drum thunder and superb rhythms. The muted lines rule! Big, aggressive, and very modern-surf cool!
