West Palm Beach's Surfer Blood has always done its part to represent what's really going on in South Florida -- good and bad. In the November issue of NYLON (courtesy of Freegums' Jen Stark), the guys are consulted for a mixtape of Florida bands worth hearing, and among them are a selection of County Grind favorites including the Dewars, the Jameses, Torche, Love Handles, the Band in Heaven, and Ghost Arm. Miami's Jacuzzi Boys also get a chance to detail the best "dive" bars in their home city, and a bunch of other bands that probably should have gotten invited to play in the Miami Music Festival get some national shine.
Bonus: Watch as the guys give a shout to imprisoned City Commissioner Tony Masilotti and reminisce about the days of nonpotable water.
