The Surf Rats - Cows In The Surfdotdotdot
artworkIt's hard to imagine why they are called Surf Rats, but then again, they do a couple of instros, and if you close your eyes and think of England, you may see the ocean.
Picks: Crazed, Elvis Legg

Track by Track Review

Crazed dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Crazed" is a dark industrial thing with machine beats and a minimal melody line. Pretty non-melodic, very mechanical, and yet beach like, if you subscribe to the bleak post-human robot theory of beach combing.

Elvis Legg dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

I don't know if this is the reference for the title, but there's an updated version of the dissonance that Pink Floyd created in "Corporal Clegg" that "Elvis Legg" embraces. No, there's no melody or rhythm similarities, just a feeling. Anyway, this is harsh in an emotional sense, or perhaps cold and barren.
