The Surfin' Nipples - Attack Of Your Beach!dotdotdotdot
artworkAlright, this may be an mp3 demo only, but clearly, there are fresh things happening here. Attack Of Your Beach! is surf with a twist. Let's just say you shouldn't expect trad, but you also might hear references to the energy and grit of Man or Astro-MAN?, not that this is too much like that really. Rock with surf.
Picks: First, Second, Third, Fourth, Third

Track by Track Review


First dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

Trembling guitar, dripping springs, moody ambiance, and gently lapping waves bring forth a boomy take of an interesting song. Big rumble, heavy thunder, and raging drums. The midsection's muted guitar is superb against the rightly subtle organ. "First" is mostly about power and drama.

Second dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

Grumpy and gritty with a grin, "Second" features a simple and engaging riff. Written like a fifties growler, amped like tomorrow, and very gritty. If Link Wray was 15 and played in his neighbor's garage, he might have done stuff like this. Very big!

Third dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

An easy chord progression, glissandos, a light hearted riff, and dry grit give you "Third." Highly unusual, with great drums, and some really cool guitar lines. It certainly grows on you.

Fourth dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

Big whammy twang, a swamp chord progression, and a dangerous vibe. Long sustain chords create drama and danger. "Fourth" is pretty intense, and very original.

Third dotdotdotdot
Surf Rock (Instrumental)

This is a variant of "Third" with a whole different attitude. Muted chop chord magic and a huge sound mean this much more space-grind dangerous.
