Something old = something new from Nada Surf

Those guys on the very high lifeguard chairs are Brooklyn alternative-rock trio Nada Surf, and they may be up there talking about how they’re fixin’ to re-release their 1996 five song EP Karmic, from their days before signing with Elektra. Out June 12 on Hi-Speed Soul Records, the EP will also include a bonus track, “Pressure Free,” previously only available on 7″.

From the press release, “Nada Surf has managed to survive the wonder of their one big hit [Popular], build an estimable army of loyal fans around the world, and thrive through the commitment to the craft of making pop music that’s indelible, warm, and uniquely their own.” Amen, I second that sentence. Nada Surf is currently in the studio working in their 5th full-length album out this fall.

  • Ah, I remember Nada Surf were one of the first bands I saw, supporting the Vines back in erm 2001? Maybe 2002. They were really good, but I’ve not kept up with them since. Glad to see they’re still around though. I’ll have to dig out the album I bought at some point and catch up!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
