On Loop: “Surf Wax America” (Cover) by You Blew It!

Orlando, Florida’s You Blew It!, who’s set to release a five-track Weezer covers EP titled You Blue It, just premiered their cover of “Surf Wax America” over at Stereogum today.

Frontman/guitarist Tanner Jones says, “We chose Surf Wax because it’s a really great song, plain and simple. We didn’t want to do singles from the record, and luckily Surf Wax is one of those cuts that could have held its own as one, but seemed untouched enough to allow a fresh perspective on it. Not that we or any other band could, but we really didn’t want to try and out-do Weezer. Our goal was to add our touch to Blue, but first and foremost, we wanted pay tribute to the songs themselves in the most respectful way possible. Surf Wax is a great example of that I think.”

You can pre-order a physical copy of You Blue It now via Topshelf Records. It will be digitally released on July 15 and out on vinyl August 12.

Some of my favorite things are beef jerky, bacon, Benedict Cumberbatch, pistachios (aka the nut of the gods), my husband's face, and coffee.
