Track by Track Review


Ski School dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Baritone guitar gives "Ski School" a dangerous edge. The melody line is fun and engaging, and the chants of ski terms add a quaint vintage feel. Gutty and very sturdy, with genuine charm!

Moguls dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a splashy and fun track, with an infectious riff and great drums. The chemistry here is powerful. this is one of those tracks where you realize the importance of the bass, which provides the foundation for the guitar and drums to rage against. I love the drums!

Double Black Diamond dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Thick tone emanates from the baritone guitar with menacing certainty. Structured much like a rockabilly instro, yet full of surf and snow. The twang is dark, the bass grode, and it runs on great drums! Superb!

Apres Ski dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

A sow glissando and tremolo open this charming song. Excellent easy tone and lovely chords shimmering in their bath of shallow tremolo. "Apres Ski" is totally cool!
