Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Composer: Shawn Lee.
Muze PNote 2008 signals a watershed -- not to mention busy -- year for composer, multi-instrumentalist, and groove producer Shawn Lee. First there was the brilliant Miles of Styles, on which Lee indulged folk, funk, and exotica styles from across the globe. Next was the strange, spaced out Walking Backwards collaboration with mysterious production persona Clutchy Hopkins, that combined funk, soundtrack, and library sounds in a heady but moody brew. Under the Sun, the official soundtrack for the film of the same name by Australian director Cyrus Sutton, is the third entry in Lee's catalog this year. The movie is a documentary about the surf industry via the life of two Gold Coast towns utterly wrapped up in it. Lee composed and performed most of the instruments on his 28 cues. While it does embrace the "feel" of surf records from the early 1960s, the take is anything but straight. Lee doesn't attempt to re-create the Ventures or Dick Dale. Instead, his move is to try to re-create the atmospheric conditions that the film centers on in its portrayal of the surf industry. Sun-drenched soundscapes filled with guitars, harmonicas, snare drums, Farfisa organs, and harmonicas (the latter, ? la Ennio Morricone) slip and slide together in this glorious batch of tunes. This is as much an homage to the resort teensploitation films of the era as it is a salute to surfing, and as such it works wonderfully. This is pure beat-conscious soundtrack music with a hint of nostalgia in its strictly modernist approach.
Muze PNote The second disc in this package contains 11 tracks by three bands closely associated with the Australian surf scene: Afro Dizzi Act, Low Pressure Sound System, and the Band of Frequencies collective. "Drop Off" is a labyrinthine ten-plus minute track that evokes the entire surf journey, from paddling out to catch a wave, grabbing it, and "entering the zone" while riding it in. The tension ebbs and flows and eventually ratchets up without losing any of its blissed-out melodic groove. Keyboards, loops, and breakbeats, rounded jazzy guitars, and a spacious mix make this one of the great bonuses on the package. "Spoonbender" is another lengthy cut at 11 minutes. Performed by Band of Frequencies, it is designed as a sonically adventurous tribute to the Australian surf hero George Greenough. Here, hand percussion, upright basslines, skittering hi-hats, and dreamy tripped out wah-wah guitars and even a Wurlitzer create a dub-like spacious effect. All of their contributions here were made after days of nonstop multi-track recording. The Band of Frequencies collective is made up of members from Afro Dizzi Act and surfer Dave Rastovich. Their tracks are immediately recognizable, since they play a party-centric meld of psychedelic guitar rock, hard, funky neo-soul, and blues. Check their raucous "Sol Train" for reference.
Muze PNote Whether you listen only to Lee's brilliant soundtrack, these more indigenous contributions from the land down under, or all of the above, this package -- sold for a super budget price -- is a welcome addition to any shelf where (mostly) instrumental music is enjoyed. Look for the Lee tracks to be sampled endlessly in the future. Any way you go, you can't lose. Lee is full of surprises and this may be his biggest and best one yet. ~ Thom Jurek
