2010, Florida natives Surfer Blood released their debut and indie breakout album Astro Coast

In 2009 Barack Hussein Obama (see: Catholic Pagans) was President and a scrappy bunch of kids from West Palm Beach, Florida were booking their own shows across the country, sleeping in 24 hour Walmart parking lots and going for broke like only teenagers can. They had songs of MySpace. They became CMJ breakout artists. They had a chance meeting with a Brooklyn indie label. And in January of 2010, Surfer Blood released their debut album Astro Coast, 10 tracks that Pitchfork named Best New Music and said upon release that it “succeeds wildly” as a “relentlessly catchy, ‘classic indie’ album”– and their “debut LP … is first and foremost a great guitar album packed with sing-along hooks, but there's more going on beneath the surface.” Rolling Stone said, “they dress up their guitar-mad escapades in a stadium-echo kick that Nineties indie kids were too grumpy to try.” Surfer Blood spent the year touring the world and was the most blogged about indie artist - blogs were a very big thing – culminating with them landing on everyone’s year-end lists.

Blue and Red vinyl.
