Keeping this short: Everyone's favorite South Florida band, Surfer Blood, premiered its first-ever music via Pitchfork today. The video has the same surreal feeling as the track itself. From what we can tell it wasn't filmed in South Florida, which is rather disappointing, but there are some the state references with burning palm trees and Mickey and Minnie Mouse making cameos. Still, we look forward to all the hype in the coming months. Too bad MTV doesn't play music videos anymore, but thank God for the interwebs.
