The Upskirts - Demos 2005dotdot
artworkFour demos pulled from the Upskirts website. The two live tracks are much better sounding and better written. Judging from these tracks, this Austin band targets parties and rowdy crowds.
Picks: Fast Track B, Long Tamales Stomp, Stink Fuzz, Underhanded

Track by Track Review


Fast Track B dotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Fast Track B" is a riff rocker with reverb at a fast pace, with distortion like a rockabilly rave up. Very riffy, perhaps more like a frat rock instro than surf.

Long Tamales Stomp dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Long Tamales Stomp" is a fast and furious intro with lots of flair. The bass pumps, the guitar flies, and the drums race. Lots and lots of energy and twango. Well recorded, this would be very cool!

Stink Fuzz dot
Surf (Instrumental)

A really trashy recording of a really trashy frat rocker. "Stink Fuzz" is just not memorable or very interesting, except perhaps if your drunk and 15.

Underhanded dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Underhanded" is a fast and rhythmic track. No melody, but lots of chunk and drive. Pretty fun.
