Brilliant modern surf,
This review is from: Sonic Bullets: 13 from the Hip (Audio CD)
The album has a much darker sound to it than early surf and is less torn up with the simple sort of bluesy I-IV-V progression, making the tracks all sounding very different from one another. (A problem with early surf I find is so much of it sounds very samey.) Even if you're not into surf you might like this as the instrumentals are very atmospheric: an often comparison is to Ennio Morricone, who produced all the spaghetti western soundtracks.
Oh and the vocal songs are more like poetry read over the instrumentals than pop songs, which isn't a bad thing as this isn't a pop band.
This is probably the band's best CD so if you've heard them already and like get it. If you haven't read it may I recommend looking up one of their videos on Youtube. :)
