Among the new releases to arrive in Amoeba Music yesterday was the Tarot Classics EP  (Kanine Records) by Surfer Blood. It is the first extended release from the West Palm Beach, Florida based rock quartet since they first arrived on the scene last year with their acclaimed debut album Astro Coast, also on Kanine Records. Also in 2010 they released the 7" single "Floating Vibes" which is still available at Amoeba. Their new EP, available on both vinyl and CD, features bonus remixes by several producers including San Francisco based Speculator, and Totally Sincere which is Connor Hanwick of the Drums and Peggy Wang of TPOBPAH.

The release coincides with the band's much coveted opening slot on the new Pixies (who influence their sound) US/UK tour which kicks off tomorrow the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. No CA dates for Surfer Blood are included but you can pick up the new Tarot Classics EP featuring such tracks as "Drinking Problem" below.  And if you want to check out more tracks before buying it at Amoeba you can stream it in its entirety here care of Spin magazine. You can follow Surfer Blood on Twitter.
