Bevel Emboss – “Celluloid” – [Rough Trade]
Bevel Emboss is a 4-piece band from the Netherlands. Their fine playing is evident on this all instrumental album from 2012 that mostly works as surf music but also crosses that genre’s boundaries. Very twangy, upbeat tracks have a rather “produced” sound. The mixture of acoustic and electric guitars gives it a nice twist. Track 11 has a phone call, not sure what language. Track 15 begins with classic Spaghetti Western whistling. My picks are 2 and 5, at least right at this minute.
