Surfer Blood/The High Strung 

When: Mon., May 18, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $15
At the intersection of surfer rock and psychedelia lies Surfer Blood, a Florida band that’s hit a nice stride since its 2009 debut. Through the years, they’ve developed a slacker sort of vibe -- but one accompanied by a certain lyrical wisdom that has only matured (rapidly) over the band’s three albums. The band’s latest single, “I Can’t Explain,” is another summery trip through laid-back, reverb-drenched verses and anthemic choruses. It was the first cut released off the new album, 1,000 Palms, out on streets just this week. Album opener “Grand Inquisitor” piles wicked lead guitar over crunchy chords, and approaches 311-style songwriting at certain points -- and the break that comes a minute-and-a-half in is just terrific. There’s a lot to dig into on this new one. (Eric Sandy)
