"Surf music purists beware, you'll probably hate "Sand Witches". However, if you like your surf music sounding like Harley Davidson of Deadbolt playing with Pussy Galore, you're in luck. I'm not trying to be an asshole. I know only about four of you will know both of those bands, but those four of you will know exactly what I mean. There's a lot of other noisy shit going on in it, but that Deadbolt and Pussy Galore would be the predominant noisy shit.
The song is by Druggy Pizza aka Cédric Bottacchi from Dusty Mush, not that that tells you anything. I don't know who the hell he is, some French dude. I just ran into it. Checked out a video by Dusty Mush and they're fairly noisy too. Heavy on the distortion with a primal kit bashing beat, self aware as it might be.

Finally, Druggy Pizza wraps up with “Pizza Sloths,” a twangy-meets-middle eastern sounding track that will send shivers up your spine. Clocking in at only 2:05, “Pizza Sloths” brings the album to a fitting close with repeated lyrics and unrelenting guitar chords. Overall, if we had to say only one thing about this album, it would be…"
