Track by Track Review
"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.
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.
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.
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
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.
