The Surfin' Lungs - Tales From The Beach ( Volume 1 )dotdotdotdot
artworkThere aren't a lot of vocal California Sound bands that I like, but I've been a fan of The Surfin' Lungs for a long time. Amid this fine cross section of tracks from their history are two instros.
Picks: The Godfather, Tequila Taxi

Track by Track Review


The Godfather dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This version of "The Godfather" sports thick whammy and a solid beat. It retains the sadness, but adds power and a watery feel. The dribbling double picked middle section makes you wanna order a pizza to go.

Tequila Taxi dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Tequila Taxi" is party number with fluid lead lines and a great beat. Nicely recorded and full of simple period energy. The guitar is strong, and the beat solid.
