Editorial Reviews

West Palm Beach rock band Surfer Blood present Pythons, their 2013 album and Warner Bros Records debut. Front man JP Pitts, Thomas Fekete (guitar), Kevin Williams (bass) and Tyler Schwarz (drums) recorded Pythons in Los Angeles with producer Gil Norton (Pixies, Echo and the Bunnymen.) Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Guided By Voices) mixed the album.

Pythons is the follow-up to Surfer Blood's critically-acclaimed debut album Astro Coast, which earned spots on "best of" lists from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Filter, Paste, NME and the BBC. NPR's Bob Boilen called Astro Coast his "favorite album of 2010" and declared Surfer Blood to be "America's best new pop band. "

Surfer Blood released an ambitious but delicious debut album in early 2010 called "Astro Coast", which had a killer combination of guitar hooks and a hazy reverb sound. But when we heard next from the Florida band in late 2011 on the "Tarot Classics" EP, the sound was much cleaner and the songwriting crisper. Now comes the highly anticipated second full-length album (their major label debut on Sire/Warner).

"Pythons" (10 tracks; 35 min.) kicks off with several can't-miss, fast-tempo songs with smart hooks a-plenty, starting with "Demon Dance", then straight into "Gravity" and on to "Weird Shapes" (1st single), a song that immediately reminded me of Interpol era-Antics, and before you know it you'll be humming along to its chorus "Secret charmer, suit of armor/Live it up tonight/Squeamish voyeur, sick detroyer". Track 4 brings a short breather with "I Was Wrong" but after that we're off to another batch of boisterous songs. Check out the irresistable "Say Yes To Me" (with singalong lyrics like "Say yes to me/I love you dearly/So let me see/The girl I knew/Is still true blue"), but "Squeezing Blood" and "Blair Witch" are similar 3 min. of indie-rock-pop nirvana. After one last short breather on "Needles and Pins", comes "Slow Six", the "statement" song on here I suppose, a massive and epic 4 1/2 min. song (by far the longest track on here). The album closes with "Prom Song", which captures the album's overall feeling perfectly (and is perhaps a reference to Weezer's "Sweather Song"?).

Several comments: first and foremost, the band's evolution first noticed on the "Tarot" EP, is only further accentuated on "Pythons", and as a result we get a blast-from-a-Weezer-reminding-past, a short album with a bunch of irresitable rock/pop songs where resistance is futile.

First, if you don't have their first album, go and get it. It's incredible.

2010 was the year for reverb. Almost everybody was drenching their albums with it, and I can't help thinking these guys took their name from the surfer sound. But in my mind they did it better than anybody. The rest sound like poseurs in comparison.

These guys came out like rock stars to me from the beginning. This is album is a very solid follow-up (not counting their ep in between). Anybody who thinks Weezer lost their touch somewhere between Pinkerton and the Red Album should check this band out, because on this album they harness a lot of Weezer's Blue Album sound.

There isn't as much reverb on this album, though, and I honestly think that's a shame. The sos are very solid, but I've got a fever with this band and the only prescription is more reverb. It's not just a trend when you get it so right and actually define the sound.

I love how their staying with the pink. This is album is muscular, like the kid on the cover shows, though the first album bit, like the shark going after you on that one.

So for listeners, buy this album. This band is here to stay and they're awesome. For the band, I'm glad you're exploring, but whatever you do next, I want balls to the wall reverb, killer solos that I know you can do, and kick ass rock.

Love the vocals, love the songwriting, love the music. Love this band. Second album slump? Not at all. It's pretty great. But I think the next one is got surfer blood all over it and is going to be the best yet. You can't play it safe with a name like that.

Aside from my personal favorite, "Grownass Man" by The Shouting Matches, this takes the top prize for best album of 2013 halfway through. Their best album yet, "Pythons" is a cleaner, catchier mix of hits for a band that's been finding their groove. Surfer Blood sounds a lot like their name would lead you to think, providing some darker, edgier surf rock. "Demon Dance" is the best song of the year.

I'm so glad to get this album and hear that it sounds exactly the same as their old stuff, only better. If you liked Astro Coast and Tarot Classics, buy this now!

Beach Boys had sex with Weezer and spawned a harmonic album nostalgic of post-punk surf pop. Sad reflective lyrics with upbeat sound make me feel like I'm on a beach vacation with a hovering reality that the album will end.

If you have grown fond of Surfer Blood sound, this album is a masterpiece.

Debut "Astro Coast" was a head-spinning psych-pop feast. Follow-up EP "Tarot Classics" upped the pop ante while adding some electronic elements and different textures. This album is the crystallization of both previous efforts, and songs like 'Gravity,' 'Weird Shapes' and 'I Was Wrong' leading off a strong first half of the album. 'Pins and Needles' is in the picture for best song Surfer Blood has recorded, a strong lyrical melody melding with atmospheric music that adds some of the sound flourishes found on "Tarot Classics." A strong second album that continues the tradition of excellence fans have come to expect.

This deluxe version (available only as a d/l and not on CD) adds 2 bonus tracks: "Born 4 U", another crash-and-burn fast song that is quite good, and the slower "Phantom Limb" is okay but not essential.
