This CD was awaiting me as I returned home yesterday, and I've been listening to it all day. Wow, what a great CD! It is such a cool sound.
Now, I like almost all varieties of "Surf." These current, modern bands are really good and I really like them, but as I listened to this CD, all I kept saying to myself is, "Man, this is why I love this genre so much." Very trad, but with just a bit more style. I really love this CD...good work!

If you enjoy trad-meets-sci-fi surf sounds, the new Atomic Mosquitos CD is for you. Cool sounds, solid playing and great artwork from Stephen Blickenstaff. One really cool thing is that the CD contains all original material (13 tunes). No covers necessary. Pick up this CD!

I've been hearing ripples on the water for quite a while about the Atomic Mosquitos. Their album is nearing completion, and I'm privileged to be able to review this advance CD-R of the tracks. You can feel the compressors breathe as the band drives these fine melodies home. This is a really nice set of surf tunes, well written and maturely arranged, yet fun and adventurous.
