Surfer Blood

They may be from Florida, but their "surfer blood" is strictly reserved for the music. Instead of riding waves, these indie rockers use swimming, floating and oceans as metaphors. They employ the West Coast breeziness of the Beach Boys, Weezer, the Shins, and a touch of Dick Dale to justify their name. They released their debut album, Astro Coast, in early 2010.

    Surfer Blood

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 25 min

    This particular show was captured on a sticky summer night June of 2010 at the Daniel Street club in Milford Connecticut. Though filming in an unfamiliar setting yielded a somewhat tricky production, what follows is a honest, on-stage (and, towards the account of one of 2010's most exciting bands. Here Surfer Blood take to tangy, sun kissed fret work and stomp the pedal box moments of grit...the band's raw guitar crunch seeping into a heavy sway of multiple, percussive elements. At the helm of the group, John Paul (JP) Pitts flaunts flailing, haphazard kind of vocals, high on reverb and coloring outside the melodious lines like some newbie version of Stephen Malkmus. Not surprisingly, it's a sound that reminisces more of early 90s buzz bin bands than the contemporary indie fixation with weird electronic acrobatics; a refreshing, throwback spin that has felt very of the moment all year long.
