artworkI continue to long for the days of old when their first album crossed by path."Psycho Surfer" was/is nothing short of incredible! I find them getting less and less interesting as they mature, more polished and a bit contrived at times. Yet, I'm unable to resist a new release, always rewarded with a killer instro or two, and ever enriching guitar tones, getting rounder and rounder.
Picks: Dance For Me, Deja Baroom, Strangest Ways, Theme From "The Cheaters"

Track by Track Review


Dance For Me dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Super cool stoopid silliness disguised as a great Arabic / Latin surf track. very fun, rhythmic, and enticing.

Deja Baroom dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Quirky progression barnyard bop.

Strangest Ways dotdotdotdot
Surf (Vocal)

Super surf guitar under super silly vocality. Very fun track, so I thought I'd comment even though it is a vocal. There's a B-52's attitude and a Dick Dale sound. Cool.

Theme From "The Cheaters" dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Plinky piano film score stuff with bluesy guitar. Just so so.
