Quartet Surfer Blood kind of sounds like it's socking Brian Wilson over the head with a distortion pedal, spewing pleasant harmonies imbued with scuzzy guitars and boundless white noise. Since originally forming as TV Club a few years back, lead vocalist/guitarist JP and bassist TJ (the two remaining original members) have been perfecting their blissful concoction of lo-fi post-punk and surf rock.
These young saplings, fresh from a lengthy East Coast tour, return to their Palm Beach stomping grounds Friday night to officially unveil their phenomenal honeyed debut, Astro Coast, at Propaganda. Pitchfork should be paying close attention to the jagged but engaging pop melodies of "Swim (to Reach the End)" and "Catholic Pagans." Joining Lake Worth's answer to the Jesus and Mary Chain will be Orlando's winsome indie-pop troupe XOXO. You don't want to miss it when this four-piece destroys the stage (literally and otherwise).
