Halfway House Sessions – Surfer Blood

Photo by Nicole LaRae.

Whilst on a tour stop to play Rosa Parks Circle for ArtPrize – the lovely LaRae of WYCE convinced the boys of Surfer Blood to swing on by the Stone House to lay down a few tracks for us. . .They were kind enough to oblige. . .

Included in the mix is ‘I’m Not Ready’ – an unreleased track – as well as ‘Box Elder’ – a Pavement cover. . .

Originating from West Palm Beach Florida – the youthful lads are already making a big splash on the indie music circuit – scoring a slot opening up for Interpol on their European tour. . .
