Hipster indie music isn't really my things, but I actually like this album a lot. It's not really surfer rock despite what the band's name might suggest (and some of their lyrics), although I do think it's good summer music. It's one of those albums that you end up learning the riffs and hooks for when noodling around on a guitar--which maybe isn't the best way to describe it. It's just energetic, melodic, a little bit California, a little bit West Africa, mostly indie rock. good stuff.

probably falls somewhere in the middle of a specturm that goes sonic youth - velvet underground - the pixies - weezer- vampire weekend. I realize none of that really appeals to the demo of this website, but if you have closet interest in any of those bands I think you'll like this stuff.

Good choice in your video, floating vibes is the best song on the album. In your band comparisons I'd say it's less VU and more Built to Spill

the new songs they released are good as well, a more mature approach to the music they started with in their first album
