This band played like 87 CMJ shows and guess what? Leave it to us to miss ALL of them. Beyond that we don't know much about Surfer Blood (besides the fact that they just opened a bunch of shows for Art Brut). BUT I am completely enamored with their latest single "Swim". It's kind of shout-y, pounding bit of power-pop but in a totally catchy, deceptively simple way. And there's also that little instrumental break that vaguely reminds me of Vampire Weekend (but only vaguely). Their debut Astrocoast hits shelves January 12th. Here's hoping it lives up tot he single.
