DRY FEET: Philadelphia Beach: CD

Mar 03, 2011

Good lo-fi surf-centric recording with an occasional three-chord punk song thrown in. The surf songs are well constructed and have a good sense of sun-drenched humor. The more punk fare incorporates vocals recorded with exaggerated reverb to give a faux ‘50s feel that is so popular with the kids these days. The album wraps with “Slow Baby Slow,” a dreamier retro pop number that rounds out the eight songs nicely. Fans of Shannon And The Clams should take note. Except for bringing about imagery of feet, it is a solid first release.
