Podcast: Surfer Blood and Neon Indian

On this week\’s podcast we discuss the new album from the Florida band Surfer Blood, \”Astro Coast.\”  We agree that they sound like a combination of Journey, Pavement, .38 Special, Band of Horses, R.E.O. Speedwagon, My Morning Jacket, the Shins, Paul Simon and Vampire Weekend.  We also discuss Neon Indian, a hippie electronic band that I was much less enthusiastic about.

Here\’s a video clip of Surfer Blood that makes me feel 143 years old.

    I cannot believe that you did not mention Less Than Jake from Gainesville, Florida. Losing Streak was one of the best ska albums from the mid-90’s. Common on! We even went to the Ska vs Racism show at the Eagles Ballroom.

    If I may direct you to the 30:10 mark, where I very clearly mention Less Than Jake. And how could I forget the day we eliminated racism?
