Synopsis

Amazon.com
While the Aqua Velvets have been at the forefront of the surf revival, their music is no slavish rehash of the genre's past glories. Instead the group offers an intriguing mix of surf stylings alongside a more complex menu of echo-laden Ennio Morricone-style spaghetti-Western soundtrack music, Latin rhythms, shimmering psychedelia, and ultrahip lounge lizardry. Nomad is their third and most accomplished effort, thanks to the sensual sway of the title track opener, the gradually building intensity of "Surf Nouveau," the evocative (and wonderfully titled) "Smoking Panatelas on the Blue Mediterranean Sea," and the roiling "Holly Tiki." And that's just the first four tracks. Overall, Nomad offers the perfect accompaniment for your next surfin' safari or even a quiet evening on the couch. --Daniel Durchholz

CD Reviews

Very Cool Reverb/Surf Guitar
surfandsand | Florida USA | 07/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're into reverb, surfing, or just like playing around with an electric guitar, you'll really like this CD. This is not grandfather's Dick Dale/Ventures surf guitar sound, but rather a much cooler, smoother reverb style. Very innovative, cool and very reverb."
Awesome
T. Sezen | Oakley, CA USA | 07/26/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Being a long time instrumental surf music fan (Dick Dale, Ventures, Shadows), I was very pleasantly surprised by this album. This album not only stays true to the genre but takes it further than just a revival approach. Compositions and guitar of Miles Corbin is very melodic and lyrical. I would recommend it to any surf music fans out there, take a chance and you will also be delighted."
Very cool reverb guitar work
surfandsand | Florida USA | 07/13/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like the sound of reverb guitar, you'll like this cd. These guys drag Dick Dale style surf guitar into the 21st century, and they do it with a cool style."
