FILTER’s Top 10 of 2013: Surfer Blood
By Staff on December 30, 2013
When it comes to end-of-year lists, it's definitely not all about us; we love to know what our favorite musicians and artists have been digging the most out of 2013, too, and we're thrilled to share those lists here.
In 2013, Surfer Blood released their sophomore album, Pythons, and subsequently toured far and wide (including hanging with us at SXSW in Austin). They've stopped by our office recently to talk shop, and here, the guys give us a nice mix of "tops" from the year, from fests to future releases.
