Track by Track Review


Echo dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Surf reverb drives a downward spiraling riff that's catchy and warm. The manic drummer gives "Echo" quite an intriguing edge. Splendid.

Desert Wind dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a wonderful and moody surf instro with haunting imagery. Its delicate pace adds to the mysterious sound. Great tone and rung out chords. Gentle whammy and a spooky melody runs atop a circular second guitar pattern over very moody bass and a near-military beat.
