Surfer Blood

Surfer Blood - Swim (Alpaca Remix by Allen Blickle of Baroness)

It's almost as if the ultra-meticulous and overly critical Liquid Jesus sense of aesthetics was specifically taken into careful consideration for this one, huh? With an almost too perfectly tailored ironic-yet-frighteningly-fitting take on classic Saville cover-art and backed with a uncharacteristically tweaked/fuzzed-out Allen Blickle remix, newly minted indie-pop darlings Surfer Blood know exactly how to jazz up an already deliciously poppy single, and they do it so so well. It doesn't get much tastier than this.
