Track by Track Review


Shadrach dotdotdot
Northwest Style (Instrumental)

The sax is nasty enough, the guitar floats on a jazz pillow, and the organ has that Wailers growl. Like many a northwest single to follow, this track is a progression and a bunch of fun.

This Place dotdotdotdot
Moody (Instrumental)

This original acetate demo is sorta in the style of "Harlem Nocturne," but more jazzy and detectivist, less shimmering and moody. The scenery is like an epilog to their earlier sound. Still, it's damn swell.
