Track by Track Review


No Return dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"No Return" is the B-side of the single. It is chunky, and sports a very full lead guitar tone, which is played open. The rhythm is infectious and bouncy, and the ominous overtones are unmistakable. Great track.

Moon Relay dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Moon Relay" is a highly infectious, very rhythm oriented number. It rolls right along, plays really well loud in your car on warm summer night, and stays with you. It is very simple, and very effective. The pristine playing and glorious writing is similar to the (San Jose) Torquays work, chunky, delicate, and whammy driven. Great track.
