Impala - Teenage Tupelo OST

Impala was one of the greatest, and easily the most underrated groups of the recent instrumental surf revival, and to me this is one of their best efforts. Slow, sensuous, sleazy sax over the fast pulse of a great rhythm section. Exotic, melodic guitar riffs instead of the usual tube-amp thrash that tries to pass itself off as surf these days. It creates a beautifully sleazy, neon-lit pulsating world. Being a soundtrack there is a combination of atmospheric and melodic tunes - so think of this as mood setting background music more than punchy driving riffage.
