One year ago today, a few lucky fans in Los Angeles got an early peek at what wound up being one of 2011’s best songs. “I’m Not Ready” from Surfer Blood‘s Tarot Classics EP is a winner folks. In the video below, frontman John Paul Pitts and the boys are still a little rough around the edges. But one needs to look no further than the confident faces of Surfer Blood’s members to be assured they knew what they were on to. Tarot Classics was a release both Brett and I have lost sleep over omitting from our year-end “best of” lists. I listen to it weekly. Get a glimpse of one of 2011’s best tracks, before any of us knew exactly what we were in for.
