*Guerrero, Tommy* – “Perpetual” – [Too Good Records]
Tommy Guerrero plays all the instruments, seems like primarily bass and guitar, and has drummer Chuck Treece join him on a few tracks. Mostly though it’s Tommy and his thoughts, slow down-tempo dreamy tracks with enough reverb to sound “surfy” but not enough to be considered surf.
Several tracks harken me back to the Blktop Project album reviewed earlier this year, but that album has more accompaniment and more giddyup. This is a trip in the slow lane to a serene washed-out landscape.
This would work for the Pulp Fiction scene when Vincent drives his Malibu on heroin. Or go put on your sepia glasses and have some absinthe.
Either way, most tacks are around 4 minutes, so it’s easy to take a bite, and not feel too full.
