Episode 160: Surfer Blood


Surfer Blood frontman, John Paul Pitts stopped by Going Off Track to talk about why Florida is such a strange place, how he learned how to play guitar (spoiler: it involved listening to a lot of Pavement & Dinosaur Jr.) and why Surfer Blood decided to go back to their¬†independent roots on the band’s latest album,¬†1000 Palms. “There is no limit to how zoomed in on something you can get,” Pitts says when describing the artwork for his band’s latest album, which was done by his equally artistic sister. “Life is all about trying to balance zooming in and zooming out on various things.”
