THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

Well.... okay maybe not. But it is a shame. They make good music.

If by good you mean amazing.

Kyle -- I would never steer you wrong, my friend. Get the Proximity Effect, Let Go, and This Weight is a Gift. Listen to them, love them. It won't be hard -- they go hand in hand. Then, go back and grab High/Low and the Karmic EP. The music sounds more dated, but is still good fun!

He produced The Weight is a Gift, but you should probably still get Let Go first.

YES. What Liesbeth said!

The night that changed my life: May 29th, 2003.

The place: The Horseshoe Tavern. Toronto.

The people: The Long Winters, Sondre Lerche, and Nada Surf.

I had once owned High/Low, but really only listened to Popular. I was bored one night, and my friend was going to see Nada Surf. I decided to tag along. The night was AMAZING (which is why I'm here)! I credit it as being the night I fell back in love with music.

I have since caught Nada Surf about half a dozen times, and the Long Winters once or twice more. That should give you a good indication of how fantastic Nada Surf is.

PS. If you make any road trips to catch them in NY, I am sooooooo bumming a ride.
