The Ten Penny Heroes - The Instrumental Combo That's Destined To Save The Universedotdotdotdot
artworkWith the unlikely name of Ten Penny Heroes, you would not expect stunning instrumentals, but that didn't stop the from fulfilling that dream. A really nice sound with cool sensuous rhythms and a moving feel. All gently played with delightful character. The overall effect is stunning, smooth and wonderful. This is a DAT of three tracks, two of which are destined for their first single.
Picks: Don't Walk...Run!!, Anaconda, Attack Of The Amazon

Don't Walk...Run!! dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A really cool song with a very melodic lead line, almost mandolin like in character. Gives you reason to relax and enjoy.

Anaconda dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A rolling number that reminds me of "The Victor" in character, but much more melodic. Very nice tune.

Attack Of The Amazon dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

I found a lot of the character of the Mermen's "Lonely Road" aka "Krill Slippin'," but this is quite different. The similarities are in the reverb sounds, and in the feeling the melody and structure convey. It is not a copy, but it has that kind of character.
