Default Nada Surf

Most people would put them into the shuffle of mediocore music but, I really like this band. Simple catchy riffs with good vocals. I don't think most people will find this band to be greatest band on a technical or sensational scale. That's kind of my appeal to them. I uploaded High Low because I think it's a damn good album. Recommended tracks are The Plan and Popular.

They achieved a lot more sucess over in britain than they did in America. I saw them live there a few years back.

At any rate, I think the song that made them as a popular as they are anywhere is Popular.
You've probably heard it. It's off their High/Low album.
That song's on my Ipod. That and Hollywood.

I also have their albums Let Go and Proximity Effect which I think are really good as well.
And Dispossession (or whatever it's called) is really good as well. Not their absolute best song but it does something for me.

i checked em out a while back, not bad but nothing that really impressed me. Overall good, but nothing new or interesting.

Nada Surf went under the radar for me for a while, I never really gave them a chance since hearing their popular 700 years ago but I recently (2008) started listening to them and they are quickly becoming one of my ,admittedly many, favourite bands.

Stand out albums IMO:

Let Go
Weight is a Gift
Lucky

The song Popular (I think it's called that anyway) is a good laugh, but other than that they don't really do much for me. They're alright live though - saw them supporting the Vines in Cambridge way back when.
