1 (2:34) **** Plingy guitar up front. Fast, spy show surf sound with bright brass, and a gunshot sound effect or two or five.
2 (2:23) * Sunny, bright guitar sound. Drums keep the energy up, and it gets even sunnier and chirpier by end.
3 (3:29) *** More of a Dick Dale strummy/Mariachi/middle-East surf vibe. Some ultra-quick solos-- fast! Sharp! Cool! (Goes on for a bit too long, though...)
4 (2:49) ** Sweet sounding mid-'60s frat rock vibe. Lazy and slow and cool.
5 (3:16) * Plunky chuggy melody out front. Slower, a bit thuddy, but the groove catches up with you, and it's all pretty intense.
6 (2:42) ** Quick and bright-- sunshine and organs, and syrupy melody-- an ultimate super-slick surf-pop package.
7 (3:34) ** Spooky singing saw! (Or is it a theremin?) Lazy swaying surf feel, cool and tropical.
8 (2:41) * Dorky strut, with some tubas hanging out in the background. Not quite surf, just super-sunny. Swingin' guitar solo!
9 (2:02) ** Drum-rolls and sharp-edged guitars! More on edge and freaked-out, due to insistent drums.
10 (2:48) ***** Thomping awesome soul stomper! Twisting twerping guitar set against this mashing backbeat! Awesome!
11 (2:14) *** Fast and flitty (mosquito-like, you see) guitar twiddling around. Surf here, bonkers and some wild effects.
12 (3:14) **** Hammond organ, and some smooth guitar. Loungey, syrupy in the best Herb Alpert-y way. And some back-up vox! "Ba-da-da..." So fucking swank!
13 (2:36) * Honking blues guitar and doom drumming. Schlocky late-'60s brit-lounge soul groove, for better or worse... 14 (1:31) ** Happy head-shaking surf-thrashing party, goes crazy and psyched out! 15 (2:01) Reflective and bittersweet guitar ballad, at half-speed.
