Hear the New Nada Surf Record In It's Entirety


Recommended Posts

I kinda wrote 'em off way back when their Popular video was all over MTV but picked up The Weight Is A Gift a couple of years ago which I loved so much I purchased the album before it, Let Go. Nada Surf are definitely among my most favorite current bands. I keep missing them in concert but hope to finally catch 'em the next time they swing through here.

And I was ?ipping through them trying to browse, but now that we’re all so spoiled by iTunes and CDs, record spines seem really hard to read.” He pauses. “This is so ultimately nerdy, but they’re hard to read because the color ?elds keep switching—if the color ?elds were the same, it would be easier to read the type. So I thought: I’ll put them in color order! It was the most exciting hour of my life. It looks like a sand sculpture. I think I have a picture of it in my phone,” he says, ri?ing through his pockets.
