Atomic 7 Gowns by Edith Head

Atomic 7 includes Clinton Ryder on double bass, Mike Adreosso on drums, and Brian Connelly (Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, Neko Case & Her Boyfriends) on guitar. Gowns by Edith Head features erudite levels of musicianship and an impressive range of inventive surf/country instrumentals, ranging from gently lulling to tenaciously rockin'. Tongue-in-cheek song titles are also firmly in place on tunes such as "Artistry in Nachos" and "You Ain't Havin Fun Till You're dialling 911." Through the group's outstanding musical deftness and song writing prowess, Atomic 7 transcends most other bands mining the instrumental surf rock genre. (Mint)
