SURHOFF: Separate Places: CS

Sloppy punk in the vein of the glut of ’90s artists that blurred the lines between indie rock and the various other slacker genres. It’s a perfect tape for those afternoons cooking at a friend’s house. The guitars, played at half mast, drip with the sweat from a lazy summer sun. Maybe it’s wishful thinking, but I hear Archers Of Loaf, Superchunk, the melodic side of the Dischord catalog, and a little bit of the Latterman family tree, all stirred into the melting pot.
