Robin Sylar - Tricked Outdotdot
artworkMore low quality garage trash passing as surf. It has a certain charm, but if you're looking for the real deaql or even great modern grode surf distortion, this just isn't it. Pretty well recorded live track, but not very interesting.
Picks: none

Track by Track Review


Surf Puppy dotdot
New Wave (Instrumental)

Well, this sure is cheesy! New wave instro fair with barking and goofy keys. Not particularly melodic or interesting, and severely dated sounding.

Miserlou dotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Rough, sloppy metered, and unimaginative, Robin Sylar plays a crude version of Dick Dale and his Del-tones' "Miserlou" 45 with modern tone.

Pipeline dotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Nearly glissando free, but throbbing with tremolo and bass rumble, The Chantays' "Pipeline" has a decidedly punk edge. As dirty garage versions go, this is relatively interesting, though quite sloppy. The over-modulated verse is dreadful.
