Second cd from these Croatian surf music heroes, and very nicely done again. Even though their sound is similar to a real trad surf style, there's something about the Molesters that's kinda different and innovative sounding. They've got a real strong two guitar sound with lots of reverb and great melodies. Mostly original tunes on this one, with a few covers - The Wedge, High Wall and Latinia. The Bambi Molesters have a great audio esthetic that works very well with surf music - they seem to know when to be sparing with certain instruments, and then when to pour it on too. Napuljska Gitara (based on a traditional melody) is a great example of their sound - dark, ominous bass and rhythm guitar underneath a trebly, fun lead melody. This kind of contrast is what makes the cd very engaging and highly listenable. Nice packaging and graphics too.
