The new Nada Surf record “The Weight is a Gift” is out and let me tell you it is a gift. I have been waiting for this record all year. I saw them earlier this year and they did some of the songs from this record so I got a little glimpse of what I was in for. Well worth every penny. “Blankest Year” is still a fav.

More slow songs than is usual for them but I am not complaining. Same great lyrics and sounds. More later after a few listens.
