Track by Track Review
Sanshin Electro Surf (Instrumental)
Glissandoes and great percussion run thorough "Toshin Doi" like ponies on the open plane. This traditional melody is most amazing in this electro surf 'n' koto arrangement. You can't imagine this without hearing it. None of the usual boundaries of surf apply, and like the Surf Coasters, the Surf Champlers brazenly experiment. Man-o-man, this is one interesting track!
