Listen: Surfer Blood – I Can’t Explain

Florida surf-rockers Surfer Blood unveil a lush jam off their upcoming third LP.

This week Surfer Blood were lucky enough to bring their unique brand of catchy surf rock to the SXSW Festival in Austin, and no doubt gave some lucky fans a taste of their new material off their forthcoming album 1000 Palms, which will be out in May on new label friends Spunk Records. After a difficult experience with Warner Bros Records recording their last album, the Florida quartet have returned to a far more DIY recording process: most of 1000 Days was recorded in such sophisticated settings as the attic above a doctor’s office and in the family home of founding member and drummer Tyler Schwarz. Oh, and most of the drums on this record were recorded on tape. That’s really as lo-fi as it comes!

In celebration of the release of 1000 Palms and to give fans a little preview of what is to come, the lads have released a new track I Can’t Explain. This number is a lo-fi indie gem, laden with soothing vocal harmonies and reverb-heavy guitars, hooking into a gorgeously full-sounding instrumental outro. "I've always been keen on a long instrumental outro, so this seemed like the perfect spot for a long, jammy guitar section - a place for us to get some Yo La Tengo/Built to Spill guitar fetishizing out of our system," explained frontman John Paul Pitts in a Spunk media release.

You can get your hands on 1000 Palms on May 8. Stream I Can't Explain below.
