Our guy Thom has spent a lot of time at home lately. Thom is the guitarist of Surfer Blood, and he was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Thom’s condition has made him unable to tour with Surfer Blood… but it hasn’t stopped him from creating this amazing bedroom pop album, titled “Burner”.
Recorded on a 4-track in Thom’s bedroom in South Florida, “Burner” is lo-fi, intimate, and earnest. Music rarely feels this special. 100% of all money raised will benefit Thom’s cancer treatment.

Here is a message from Thom:Sometime between March and June of 2015 while healing from two surgeries and starting chemotherapy, I hunched over my four track and created this disaster. No multiple takes, no expensive mics, no outside direction…just me in my bedroom with a very cheap, bare bones setup.
Love you, be happy pls, Thom
Some of these songs reflect on good times, days I'm able to walk on my own, talk, and function like a somewhat normal human being. Others remind me of barfing between vocal takes, wheel chairs, dilaudid withdrawals, and tears, from my family, my spouse, my dear friends. However, like everything in my life, I did manage to find some humor in my situation, and I hope that helps level out all the heavy stuff.
