Artist: The Special Agents (
Title: "Serfbeat"
Label: Sick Muse Music
Genre: Surf-Rock-Spy-Instrumental

The Special Agents "Serfbeat" (notice the play on words in the title?) is an imaginative combination of all the best elements that the genre of surf-spy-instrumental can offer a listener.

With eight quick and to-the-point tracks, this band systematically makes its way through instrumental stories that will help you to envision and relive all sorts of movies that will suddenly become a featured presentation in your mind's eye. For me it was like a trip back to some of the 60s James Bond flicks when the spy element of their sound kicked in. While the guitar is unquestionably the main instrument, the organ plays a major role in making that sound complete.

"The Lunar Sea" and "Death Probe" captured my imagination more intently than any tracks, although I found the entire recording to be consistently entertaining and diverse for this style of music. What I found listening to this band was that there was more to them than meets the eye, or ears as it were. Not only was there a bounty of the sub genres branching off the granddaddy classic surf tree, they throw into the mix a surprising amount of rock, in particular on track six "The Lunar Sea." It seemed the more I listened to it the more intrigued I became and the less it sounded like a typical surf-instro number. It is because of the repeated listens, and noticing the subtleties and different styles employed that made this more than an ordinary listen for me. The only problem was that it did not last nearly long enough for me, hence the continuous spinning of the disc, and that is not a bad thing at all.
