Hurricanes & Tidal Waves

It's been way too long coming, but here is one of our newest songs at long last! Hurricanes & Tidal Waves expresses the view that the West Coast isn't all it's cracked up to be, and Midwest weather is preferable. This is one of our most typically 'Ska' songs to date.

For this song, as well as El Queso Grande, which is uploaded elsewhere (myspace.com/themulligans ), we decided to skip the recording studio garbage and do it all ourselves. So this is recorded in our drummer's basement and, painstakingly over the course of a couple of months, edited mixed and mastered by yours truly. I am an amateur, but I think it came out well, and the guys agree. So tell us what you think! Leave a review, write us a message, whatever you like. We only ask that if you are going to shoot the song down, you give us a clear reason or some type of specific criticism. Newgrounds has been a great help thus far in improving our sound because or your reviews, and we want to keep on getting better!

good song

drums a bit too loud. otherwise, good

Oh, my

Was that some Final Fantasy I heard?

Potential to be had

You guys got a shit-ton of potential, but the power of your instruments needs some serious work. Namely your trombone, which falls flat of the mark, and instead of sounding upbeat it actually almost sounds depressing. Give it some more power and this song will be three notches higher.

HyruleanHyroe responds:

I hear you. We're still finding our niche recording-wise. Also, our trombone player has since parted ways with the rest of the band, so that's not an issue any more. :P


The last time I listened to you guys was last year during the summer & I just recently heard you've been playing with The Toasters & almost had a gig opening for The Aquabats. I thought that was pretty awesome. Congrats to your band & hope for more success for you guys! \o/

HyruleanHyroe responds:

Success for sure! May 4th we're opening for Bowling For Soup! :D

Gooood job!

You guys did this fucking perfect, i'm feeling it man!

HyruleanHyroe responds:

Thanks brah! Always glad to bring on the groooove.
