Some were hoping Priestbird's Greg Rogove would inspire Devendra to bring the rock, but that hasn't happened. Surfing finds the new partnership crafting mellow tunes heavily inspired by Tropicalismo icon Caetano Veloso and alt-pop novelty acts like Ween and They Might Be Giants. The album feels like one, long inside joke packed with homoerotic one liners and celebrity small talk. For example, the duo croons the phrase "We're having too much fun in Hollywood" for four and a half minutes straight.
