4.5 superbPorkchopExpress | June 8th 13

While their first album was 1/2 good songs padded by 1/2 mediocre songs, there isn't a single weak track on this album. I'm actually shocked by just how good the whole thing is.

While the hooks are slightly less crunchy this time around, the dudes of Surfer Blood have rcertainly not exchanged excitement for quality on their sophomore album, Pythons. rPolished, jaunty, and beautiful, the music on Pythons is well-built and seductive. rCohesion and clarity of vision shine through. Standout tracks include singles "Demon Dance" rand "Weird Shapes," as well as the stunning closer to the non-deluxe version, "Prom Song." rJohn Paul Pitts' vocals have improved, though, for my taste, they are a bit lacking in the runhinged lunacy which gave them such bite and danger on Astro Coast. However, I have ra distinct suspicion that the more mature, refined indie pop sound contained herein will, in rtime, slowly unravel itself to reveal something far grander than I can hear from here. (!) rThis is summer music, through and through, and it's easily one of my favorite records of r2013 thus far. Lie back, let the chill sound of this serpent constrict itself about your rnucleus accumbens, and ride the tasty buzz straight through the dog days.

The surf rockin' dudes successfully create a rock album that rocks as much as it swoons...Weezer would be jealous of this album...Then again, Rivers doesn't care about music anymore...
