Each year the boys join Pitchfork and pretentious music blogs across the land in championing a few important bands. Last year it was Grizzly Bear and Dirty Projectors. This year it's Surfer Blood. The first thing that stands out about Surfer Blood is that they are actually fun to listen to (a rarity these days). Pitchfork explains:
"Perhaps unsurprisingly, Surfer Blood spent the latter part of 2009 touring with Japandroids, who, along with BOAT and Cymbals Eat Guitars align in a faux-genre some of us have jokingly referred to as "alt-bro"-- guitar-heavy indie rock that's probably influenced by Pavement, likely about girls, and almost certainly made by people who at first blush sound more fun to get a beer with than, say, Dirty Projectors."
Richard: "The 'alt-bro' movement trades the Jaeger shots and continual casual sex of the bros for PBR and the occasional dutiful boning of one's boring girlfriend, but the bands are enjoyable and I will totally attend Surfer Blood's Replay show in March."
Pitchfork, by the way, gives their debut album, Astro Coast, an impressive 8.2.
