Friday’s Honorable Mention- Surfer Blood

What do you get when you cross old school Weezer‘s guitar-driven nerd rock with Vampire Weekend’s African/beachy rhythms, and then throw in vocals recalling Noah Lennox (otherwise known as Panda Bear of Animal Collective)?

You get today’s pick: Surfer Blood‘s Astro Coast

Though it’s not one of my personal favorites, this album has been receiving a lot of attention. I can’t find enough originality to make it top choice, but it’s an enjoyable listen nonetheless.

You can listen to it in the embedded Lala player on the right side of this page, or you can head to their Myspace and check a few tunes: http://www.myspace.com/surferblood

Make sure to let me know what you think of the album. Drop a comment or find the blog on Facebook, etc.
