|Three of the four tracks here are surf instro with go-go influence and infectious rhythms. Great fun!|
Picks: Batmobile, Dragula, Return Of The Munsters
Track by Track Review
Theremin warble, Bat Man references, and a jammin' backtrack. Some very cool double picking, some roots rock riffology, and surfisms cohabit "Batmobile." Songs with titles such as this are often gimmicky or cheesy, neither of which is the case here. The bass is definitely in the basement!
A fine surf rhythm and spy feeling run along with spy chorus and great drums. Engines race and the energy is high. I'm liking this one.
Yeah, "Return Of The Munsters" has inspiration from "The Munsters" theme, but it's not that song. Go-go wind electronics, Theremin, and an infectious rhythm. OK, it's pretty jammy, but I like it.
