The Breeze and I dotdotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is simply the best cover ever of this Ernesto Lacuoña classic tune. It shimmers with vibrato, embodying the band's name. It shines with perfect playing. This is a completely enthralling track. I can't recommend it enough. Each verse is a little different. The damped verse totally magical! This was a single on Bay Towne.

Surf (Instrumental)

Opening with dragsters off the line, this rhythmic almost flamenco song is choppy and really cool. It throbs with chopped guitar licks and pristine tone, like the Duals' "Stick Shift," only clean and surfed up. Very nice track.
