INSTRUMENTAL ROCK

Almost all songs have a great raw rock'n'roll/spaghetti western sound, but many seem unfinished, either by lack of melodic development, abrupt ending or something missing (singing?). There are nevertheless a few great pieces (see picks). A talent to watch, definitely (this is his first solo album).

Fred's picks: 6, 9, 13

01 - 01:14 - Distorted rythm guitar, flamenco-style lead guitar, short and unfinished piece
02 - 10:40 - guitars, drums
03 - 02:32 - bass, guitar
04 - 01:16 - spacey guitars
05 - 03:59 - acoustic guitar, hand-drumming (on the guitar), distorted guitars
06 - 03:46 - hypnotic minimalist rock melody including a xylophone
07 - 03:44 - slow country western sound
08 - 01:58 - rock'n'roll
09 - 02:46 - funny country western piece
10 - 00:50 - unfinished bass-centric
11 - 05:28 - interesting whee-ing sounds in the middle of this rock'n'roll piece
12 - 03:39 - slow ballad
13 - 02:41 - cool drum part, xylophone
14 - 02:15 - In the Mojave desert, the tumbling weeds roll and the Harley rider is free... ;-)
