Surfer Blood are following up one of my favorite albums of 2010 with a new EP, Tarot Classics, this fall. When your debut is a smash it’s never a good idea to rock the boat too much, and “Miranda” shows the guys sticking to what they know best…catchy as hell fuzzed-out power pop. Stream the new tune below and look for Tarot Classics October 25th via Kanine Records. Continuity is good.

Wednesday August 24th, 2011 12:35 James Blake & Bon Iver: Fall Creek Boys Choir
Yes, it’s here. This track is the product of a chance meeting of Justin Vernon and James Blake at SXSW in March. The collaboration from these two artists brings together the slow building, dub-influenced, layered production of Blake with the soulful, emotionally raw vocals from Vernon, resulting in a stunning composition that seems to push beyond the sonic comfort zones featured on their most recent albums. We’re hoping for some sort of release entitled “Enough Thunder” from these two sometime this October.
Wednesday August 24th, 2011 08:41 Florence + The Machine: What The Water Gave Me
Florence + The Machine is back with an awesome new song (soccer moms and hipsters alike rejoice!). She hasn’t changed her sound too much with this one, but that’s perfectly fine by me. The band also announced their upcoming album, though didn’t give us any details…and so we wait.
