Rightly or wrongly, we always view Nada Surf as one of the archetypal American alternative rock / college radio bands with their blend of melodic indie rock and power pop that finds them often compared to bands like The New Pornographers and Death Cab For Cutie.
Unbelievably they have been around since 1993, briefly tasting mainstream success with quirky hit Popular and have now released seven studio albums, the most recent being this year’s The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy, which has picked up a slew of good reviews for its sparkling guitar pop.
Now the band have made a free sampler available via Noisetrade – the eight tracks include two from their latest release as well as other gems and rarities from their extensive back catalogue.
Check out a couple of tasters below or pick up the whole thing for an exchange of an e-mail address from Noisetrade here.
