Three years after Surfer Blood took the indie-rock world by pleasant surprise with their wonderful debut, Astro Coast, the Floridian foursome is back with a more mature yet slightly more boring effort. Though equally laden with bright beachy harmonies and borrowed surf riffs, gone here are some of the more exuberant jagged edges and stretched-out breakdowns, traded in for an overall cleaner and more direct sound. While “Demon Dance,” “Say Yes to Me,” and “Prom Song” are fine examples of a band progressing into new aspects of their familiar sound, many of Pythons other tracks fall a bit flat, making it tough to consider it a real sophomore triumph.
