Surf City….. We knew it was not going to be like this

New Zealand band Surf City’s  album We Knew It Was Not Going To Be Like This continues their love affair with psychedelic, reverb-swathed guitar pop, drawing from their Flying Nun forefathers The Clean and The Chills, as well as the fuzzed-up dream pop of The Jesus and Mary Chain and the loopy noise of Animal Collective. This time round the songwriting is stronger, the tunes are hookier and the sound is even more lush.  from  http://www.firerecords.com/site/index.php?page=artists&artistid=00000000311

This is older stuff, but since I’m having fun listening to them, I’ll venture off script….
