Nada Surf - See These Bones

5:10 for May 10th

The opening track from Nada Surf’s impressive 2008 release, this song finds the band doing what they do best: beautiful melody and bright layers culminating in their trademark dual-vocalist counter-lyrics and harmonies.

If your feet aren’t tapping at the end of this song then you’re probably dead, or at least dead to me.

Nada Surf - Blizzard of ‘77 (steelopus cover)

Another beautifully simple song. This one left me with an appreciation for how amazing the mix is on the original; they managed to make two guitars and three voices sound like an orchestra… I managed to make two guitars and three voices sound like music therapy day at your local mental health institution.
