Nada Surf - Let Go & Lucky

Nada Surf is an American alternative rock / indie rock group formed in 1992. The New York band consists of Matthew Caws (guitar, vocals), Ira Elliot (drums, backup vocals) and Daniel Lorca (bass, backup vocals).

The band is perhaps best-known for the song "Popular" from their 1996 album High/Low.

‘Let Go’ released in 2002

Rolling Stone (2/20/03, p.62) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...LET GO is an excellent rainy-afternoon album, full of gentle and melancholic beauty, with echoes of Love and the Beach Boys..."

et (4/03, p.103) - "...Nada Surf has consistently produced worthy tunes, but LET GO is a near-perfect record to hold onto with all the might you can muster..."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/03, p.74) - Ranked #29 in Mojo's "Best Albums of 2002" - "...A revelation: 12 literate songs of consumptive love lives, full of big melodies..."

What we have here is their yet to be released ‘Lucky’, guitar driven melodic rock at its best. If you don’t know these guy, give it a listen….. great songs.

I’m doing up my own set of ‘Nada Surf’ acoustic renditions…. post them soon
