Swearin' - Surfing Strange

Stream: Swearin' - Surfing Strange NPR is streaming the sophomore LP from Brooklyn garage rock outfit Swearin'. Surfing Strange marks both the refinement and the amplification of the incredibly raw and muddy, but often earwormy esthetic the quartet was working with on its self-titled debut.  Perhaps the greatest change from album to album is that frontcouple Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride now share vocal duties with bassist Keith Spencer, whose gentle inflection on "Melanoma" distinguishes it as one of the LP's highlights. Check out the whole thing above and enjoy!

Surfing Strange's official release is on November 4 via Salinas Records.
