Surfer Blood play very poppy throwback rock and roll with lots of fuzz and distortion. With their latest record, Pythons, they delightfully sound like a dirtier version of early Rooney meets Weezer. The end result is a very enjoyable summer record that is even catchier than their last full-length album, Astro Coast. Surfer Blood provide a number of big surf-inflected choruses with tracks like: “Say Yes To Me”, “Blair Witch” and the single “Demon Dance”. Things get kind of boring on the slow reverbed-out “Slow Six” as well as “Needles And Pins”. Other than that, Pythons is pretty solid all around. The entire album can be streamed by clicking here.
Essential tracks: “Demon Dance”, “Squeezing Blood” & “Say Yes To Me”.
