Shark Quest

Chapel Hill, NC, quintet Shark Quest plays eclectic instrumental rock geared toward the alternative market. Their music draws from atmospheric soundtrack music (Ennio Morricone being one likely overused reference point), folk music, desert twang, and bits of other genres. Although pretty guitar-oriented, they also employ banjo and mandolin (played by Sara Bell), as well as occasional cello, keyboards, and vibes. Their debut Battle of the Loons was released in 1998. Their second album, 2000's Man on Stilts, was produced by Brian Paulson who has worked with Wilco, Son Volt, Slint, and Squirrel Nut Zippers). ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

Sounds like spaghetti western surf music. The Aqua Velvets, a relatively unknown band from San Francisco were doing this back in the 90s.

One of my childhood friends from MS made this album ( with others from Chapel Hill area). Never got to see this iteration perform but it has been in solid rotation in my life for 20 years. Never ceases to grab me and any guest in its earshot. No vocals but so much soul.
