Track by Track Review


The Poles dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"The Poles" is a very moody number, with spooky keys and a dark guitar pattern. Its "Pipeline" references add vintage connections, and it's modern chords keep it squarely in today. It's a very cool track. Very thin drum sound.

Green Room Meditation dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Drama in muted reverb, eeriness in tremolo, and weirdness in keys. "Green Room Meditation" is relatively psychedelic, with some very interesting passages. Moody and cool.

Low Hangs The Moon dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Dark fuzz pumps out dirty tones, while spatial keys depict depict and foggy visions. Some very pretty guitar lines, and a haunted sound. Quite a nice composition.

Surfer Lost dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Slow, whammified surf with ghostly aboriginal djapana (sunset dreaming) imagery. "Surfer Lost" is spectral and very sad. Artful and ethereal.

Emily Sitting On Her Board Waiting For One Last Wave Reflecting On The Day dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Slow and fluid, with sunset imagery. "Emily Sitting On Her Board Waiting For One Last Wave Reflecting On The Day" is a lovely, spatial number with depth and poetic sound.
