Surfer Blood

It is rare to come across an album as personal, dynamic, and intriguing as Pythons—but then again, rarely do bands these days have a story similar to the rise of Surfer Blood. Originally the dorm-room project of guitarist/vocalist John Paul Pitts, the band—which also includes guitarist Thomas Fekete, bassist Kevin Williams and drummer Tyler Schwarz—quietly released their debut albumAstro Coast in 2010 on indie label Kanine Records. It ended up garnering acclaim from nearly every vital music site and put them on the same stage as bands like the Pixies. Now, three years later, they’re ready to show how much they’ve grown, both as musicians and people, during their remarkably organic road to international acclaim.

Produced by the legendary Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters) Pythons maintains the same dreamy surf rock sensibility of the band’s debut but sees them buffing their pop gems into dynamic songs that feature expanded arrangements and a more focused approach to their craft that is at least partially due to Norton’s input. “We had never worked with a producer before and I think Gil’s biggest strength was taking all of our ideas and helping us arrange them in a way that made sense,” Pitts explains. “Gil pushed us really hard on this album and there are a lot of really awesome harmonies that wouldn’t have been there if it wasn’t for him.”
