Surf (Instrumental)

This is a very strange instro. It's murky and eerie, and slightly surfy. The organ carries the lead, but the melody riff has a surf feel to it, as well as a sense of the Grateful Dead circa 1967. Not quite as surf-poppy as "Surfadelic" by the Tikis, but in that general vein. Pretty fun single.
