Nada Surf made its KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic debut Monday morning. I was looking forward to this set, especially because the band skipped Arizona on its current tour. I’ll forgive them this one time.
Anyway, they played eight songs, pretty much equally split between The Weight is a Gift and Let Go (and, surprisingly, they did NOT play the single Do It Again). They did play Stalemate from High/Low, which I won’t include because Nic Harcourt starts talking over it near the end in a frantic attempt to wrap up the show.
I didn’t think the interview was very probing, although the band did touch on the whole aspect of being judged based on the song Popular.
In a cheap attempt to lure return visitors, I’m splitting the seven tracks into two posts. Enjoy.
