Totally neato! One minute it is straight up surf goodness, next a mysterious track that wudnae be out o place on enter the dragon or a laid back Goblin album. Sweet guitar trix thru out, slick bass and tiiiight drums. Beeeeeoootiful!
Favorite track: Toecutter.
The Spiratones present a panoramic vista of instrumental surf rock.
These recordings capture the energy and atmosphere of a hidden coastline, from the sun-kissed grooves of Supergoose, to the moonlit beach party evoked in Spiratonic and Couch Surfer, all the way through to the elemental squall of Toecutter.
To cut a long story short... music to dance to, with company or on your lonesome, on a beach or in your bedroom.
Presented in mono.

These four Spaniards offer up four crisp, tight instro surf songs. Two of the titles suggest creepiness, but neither is especially creepy. They are especially good, though. They also do an instrumental version of Destination Venus, which was made popular among surf fans by Man...or Astroman? who did it with vocals. I like this version better. The last song is another spacey tune that can help you visualize far away galaxies, and is also a really good song. Long story short: This rules. John Nunnally
