Swamp Angel - Rule .303dotdotdot
Rule .303 is heavy, dark, and crudely recorded and mixed. The band's sound is steeped in modern Dick Dale.
Picks: Joyride, Black Panties, Snake Charmer, Rumble

Track by Track Review


Joyride dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Joyride" is a darkened instro with a murky lead guitar and tom tom rumble - loud and brooding, mid tempo, and kinda cool. It's a compelling number that's all about the tom toms and murky danger.

Black Panties dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Big whammy chords, a rockabilly beat, and dangerous bass rumble. "Black Panties" is threatening, modern Dick Dale-ish, and heavy. This is risky, like partying with bikers.

Snake Charmer dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Heavy tremolo and a lumbering pace with spaghetti western drama and melody stylings, edged with Dick Dale-isms. "Snake Charmer" is bold and very dark.

Rumble dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Link Wray and his Raymen's "Rumble" is whammified, moody, and fittingly dangerous. The long glissandos give away its Dick Dale version roots.
