The Best, The Weird, The Most Unforgettable of SXSW 2015

Bullethead_Hanly_SXSW2015It’s Thursday (#tbt anyone?) and just about exactly a month since SXSW, so basically: the perfect time to reminisce.

Surfer Blood Stays Out Late on Jimmy Fallon

January 10, 2012 Artist News No Comments

Last night, Kanine Records’ Surfer Blood made their debut appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. They joined fellow guests Mark Wahlberg and Napoleon Dynamite, and performed their single “Miranda” from their recently released Tarot Classics EP.

You can find Tarot Classics on vinyl, digital and CD formats, each of which include bonus remixes by Totally Sincere (Connor Hanwick of The Drums and Peggy Wang of TPOBPAH), San Francisco-based Speculator, School of Seven Bells and Allen Blickle. Here’s a little secret… You can download School of Seven Bells’ Exhalation remix of the song from The Orchard’s Best of 2011 playlist on SoundCloud.

In case you were wondering, Surfer Blood is entering the studio next month with producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Built to Spill) to record their highly anticipated sophomore album, which will be released on Kanine Records/Warner Brothers Records later this year.

Watch their performance on Jimmy Fallon right here:
