10 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Beyond the reverb kicks and retro fun captured in Surfer Blood’s songs is a prickly wit and sonic inventiveness that brings to mind everything from Weezer to Barenaked Ladies and King Sunny Ade. On their debut, Astro Coast, these four South Florida lads channel their love for fat ‘n’ moist guitar textures into tunes that abound with post-adolescent jitters and bittersweet wisdom while delivering shamelessly catchy chorus hooks. “Floating Vibes” and “Catholic Pagans” are modern slices of poolside party rock, while “Harmonix” gleams with Police-like luster and “Take It Easy” moves to a metallic cha-cha beat. John Paul Pitts binds it all together with his lead vocals.
