Pythons is the second studio album by indie rock band Surfer Blood. It was released in June 2013 under Sire Records, and produced by Gil Norton. Following the release of their EP, "Tarot Classics", Surfer Blood had been writing songs whilst on tour. The first song to be written for the album is technically "Prom Song", as they have had the guitar parts for this song for a few years now. The album features all the qualities that define Surfer Blood's sound, but is stripped of its Reverb and given a more polished production, as opposed to the production that took place in front-man John Paul Pitts apartment. "Pixies" guitarist Joey Santiago lent the band equipment such as Amplifiers and guitars during the album's production, as Norton is a close friend of his because he produced most of the Pixies discography.
