Picks: First Day On Uranus, Baja
Track by Track Review
"First Day On Uranus" is a splendid surf instro with a fine melody and rhythmic sound. Its uplifting character is augmented by hand claps, and the melody is splashy and cool.
While the audio is cruddy ambient mono, The Bradipos IV sure are in good form. This is a reverent and well played cover of Al Casey's "Baja." Great tone and energy.
"Wray-Man" is, as you might expect, a Link Wray homage. It's riff rockin' and raw. In some ways, it's reminiscent of "Branded" or maybe "Commanche," but with reverb.
