The Halibuts - Chumming

Chumming sets forth a smooth background of shuffly rock, but its true focus (as with all Halibuts records) is the amazing guitar soloing that tops this — the guitar composition finds an idiosyncratic niche that's somewhere between surf and country, and simply runs through this territory with equal levels of melodic appeal and stunning virtuousity.
