tame impala

Nearly three years after making their much-lauded debut, Astro Coast, Surfer Blood are set to release their second album, Pythons, this summer on their new label home of Warner Brothers. The album was recorded in Los Angeles with veteran alt-rock producer Gil Norton (Pixies, Echo & the Bunnymen) behind the boards. You can stream the first-released track from the LP, "Weird Shapes," below and you can download it via the band's website for the price of your email address.

No word on any NYC shows, but the band will play some West Coast dates on their way to SXSW this year and those dates are listed below.

Man these guys FELL THE FUCK OFF

you mean because the lead singer assaulted his girlfriend and the label held onto the record for a long time until that blew over?

This is what I wished the new Strokes song would sound like

Funny, because it does sound like the Strokes, 5:58. A little too much, if you ask me.

i'm gonna call surfer blood's genre Pepsi-Rock because it's not nearly as good as Coke (Pixies, The Strokes, any other decent band they're shamelessly ripping), but it's still got that gross corporate taste

Dude beat the shit out of his prom date in high school, too. So, this woman beating thing wasn't a first time for him.

But there's only one first time for ripping off "Needles in the Camel's Eye"...

yep, fuck this guy. This band rubbed me the wrong way since day one.. total fratty college boys.


Learn to tune your fucking instruments if you are on a major label.

hooray for domestic abuse!!!

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2013 6:38 PM

this song is a hit.

It will punch a woman in the face and shove its fingers down their throat.

Everyone above is correct. This sounds like The Strokes ripping off the Cars with an undercurrent of early Eno, as 6:17 pointed out. But everyone rips off Eno.

seems kinda suspect to post an update about their "return" without mentioning the abuse.

"Surfer Blood know from a good hook [to a woman], but perhaps what's more promising is how most of their compositions build to their rewards." - p4k review

Was wondering what was taking so long with this release. Was this ever reported on Brooklyn Vegan?

As long as the music is good, I can overlook the woman beating stuff

They need to address it, donate proceeds from the record to a domestic abuse org or something.

she bit him twice

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2013 9:35 AM

"The victim stated Pitts grabbed her and flipped her over her shoulder, he then pinned her down by climbing on top of her. The defendant then proceeded to shove his fingers inside of her mouth. In return, she attempted to bite him and he pushed his fingers away. He continued to press his weight against her so she bit him on his chest. The victim stated this has occurred before. She told Pitts on numerous occasions she was going to call the police, but he just laughed. Advised she is not trying to ruin his life."

she must've just eaten a mighty tasty and robust hummus platter to have a hand shoved in her mouth like that
