Who: Surfer Blood
Hail From: West Palm Beach, Florida
Label: Kanine Records
Active from: 2009 - current
Sound Like: California Surfer Guitar Rock with indie sensibilities and an old school Weezer sense of humor
At first I was almost reminded of Vampire Weekend who really doesn't do much for me. Upon 2nd and 3rd listenings this band's music feels a lot more complex and cynic. They have a song about youthful longing for sex/love and how fake or wrong (but good) the journey with someone can be.....all of this, while watching Twin Peaks!!! How the fuck can you go wrong with that? Like I said they almost reminded me of Vampire Weekend, but they are missing that bands sun shiney spin to their guitar licks. Give them a couple listens. They'll grab you. This is going to be one of the bigger "bands to see" this year at SXSW. Start looking for your day shows now. I know they will be at the Villiage Voice Media day show at La Zona Rosa on March 19th. Keep an eye out on the Interwebs on RSVP and info to get into that show.
