Boogie Boarder -What Riding Waves Is All About.

Art-surf-noise-rock. The album art looks exactly like Paper-Rad and it sounds a lot like you would expect just based on that -- Providence-influenced (though they’re from Saratoga Springs) experimental instrumentals w/ rhythmic and noisy Bass & Drums & Keyboard like Lightning Bolt or Pink & Brown that you just know had to come out of some awesome art collective or other. FCC CLEAN. Picks: 13, 14, 12, 6, 11

1. Experimental instrumental intro, standard Load-fair. [0:24]

2. Distorted/compressed surf-rocky guitar with dancy keyboard. [3:33]

3. Noisey sine-wave background sounds with surf guitar and a bit of drone. [2:23]

4. Bass-line lead rock with keyboard and some outer space sounds. [1:43]

5. Much more overtly experimental track with tape and computer sounds. [0:41]

*6. Faster, with more insistent drums and flute sounds and instrumental playfulness. [2.04]

7. High-treble drums with 70s TV theme-songy keyboard and lasers. [2:54]

8. Noisy distorted video game music, with feedback in the middle and bass solo. [2:08]

9. More playful, high surfy bass notes with organy keyboard. [2:13]

10. Fade-in, more bass+drum. [0:34]

*11. Cacophonous lots of start-stop, some background drone + quiet ending. [3:29]

*12. Surprisingly pretty short melody. [0:54]

**13. Noisy like Pink and Brown with some background howling and atmosphere. [3:24]

**14. Full-bodied noise-rock with little cute keyboard sounds amidst drone. [3:18]

15. Some sine wave and arty rock instruments. [1:32]

16. Heavily distorted Bolt breakdown snippet with crowd noise. [0:28]

**17. Mmmmm, sounds like Castlevania. [2:07]
