Surfer Blood

Surfer Blood is a familiar name in the indie rock scene these days. A festival favorite who’ve toured with the likes of the Pixies (a pretty spot-on pairing in many ways), they’ve teamed up with Joyful Noise to release their latest record full of sunny jams, and continue to tour relentlessly. This session was filmed in late 2014, before guitarist Thomas Fekete had to sit out of touring to go through cancer treatment. Bands and fans have rallied to raise money and help him through this tough time. Check out some of the band’s new songs and their conversation with guest host Travis Harrison, about meeting Jeff Goldblum and their upcoming record — which they couldn’t quite discuss yet at that point.

Featured song: “Covered Wagons”

Surfer Blood’s new album, 1000 Palms, will be released May 12 on Joyful Noise.
