Los Tikinautas - Instro Surf del Espacio Exterior Demodotdotdot
artworkThree songs from Los Tikinautas, who approach surf from a horror - sci-fi angle. Sometimes unsettling, sometimes dramatic, their music is always creative even when on the riffy side. I particularly like the arrangement in "Invasores Verdes Fritos."
Picks: Botas Polvorientas, Invasores Verdes Fritos

Track by Track Review


Botas Polvorientas dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Botas Polvorientas" is a big, boomy instro with a pleasant melody riff that cycles. The bridges are very cool, with big chords, double picked lines, and a splashy sound.

Surf (Instrumental)

On the faster side, and light weight, "Rock B.A." sports brittle guitar and a jammy riff set. The beat is infectious and the energy cool. It's just melodically memorable, though it's quite fun.

Invasores Verdes Fritos dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Warbly sci-fi Theremin and cymbals open "Invasores Verdes Fritos." It's a weird, unsettling sound, which is followed by dramatic tom toms and Theremin. Once the rest of the band comes along, it evolves into a dark horror rocker. Pretty fun.
