The No Surf Review


 

Reviews with attitude:

The No Surf Review is where you’ll find our in-depth analysis of the new albums you’ll want to hear... and maybe some you won’t. Whether it’s Americana, alt. country, folk, indie rock... if we think you should know about it, we’ll review it. And we’ll give you the straight dope. We’re not here to make friends, we’re here to help you find the best music you’ve never heard.

New reviews are posted every Tuesday and Thursday.
