Lonely Coconaut - Terrific surf tune with a Spanish flair. The
Coconauts soak the speakers in a sea of reverb. The steady eighth-note
rhythm and bass drives The Lonely Coconaut in an intoxicating, yet
captivatingly urgent, direction. The lead guitar is beautiful. With my
headphones on, The Lonely Coconaut has an almost three-dimensional
sound and physical feel to it. How did they do that? Very cool. With
music like this, The Lonely Coconaut won't be lonely for long."
