It is rare to come across an album as personal, dynamic, and intriguing as Pythons - but then again, rarely do bands these days have a story similar to the rise of Surfer Blood. Produced by the legendary Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters) Pythons maintains the same dreamy surf rock sensibility of the band's debut but sees them buffing their pop gems into dynamic songs that feature expanded arrangements and a more focused approach to their craft.

Producer Gil Norton smooths the foursome’s edges while interjecting horror-comic backup yelps that marked his Pixies work decades ago; little else here would befuddle aging Cure or Weezer fans. John Paul Pitts bares girlfriend woes, most flamboyantly in the catchy opener, Demon Dance : C’mon, Raven, let me connect to the server

Pythons (Deluxe Version), 2013. Needles and Pins, 03:40.

Surfer Blood - 'Pythons'. It’s not easy imitating Pavement-era college rock. Plenty of bands – take, say, Yuck or Underground Railroad – have taken it on with admirable results. Firstly, Surfer Blood always dealt in broad emotional strokes and basic songs, and were surf rock’s least subtle band. Secondly, if you follow up a surf rock album by adopting the next indie fashion then you’re trend-chasers, and usually trend-chasers are merchants of style over substance. But the band’s finely nuanced and understated treatment of the era works on ‘Pythons’. Aided by Foo Fighters and Pixies producer Gil Norton, Surfer Blood conjure college rock’s feeling of youthful, nostalgic melancholy without using any of the sub-genre’s gimmicks, such as reverb and faded vocals.
