Album Review - Nada Surf - Lucky


Lucky has absolutely nothing to do with luck. It has everything to do with talent, vision, innovation, and perseverance. The 5th full length album by Nada Surf may be their best yet, gleaming with passion and growth. Lucky is a branching out for Nada Surf. This is the first time they have widely incorporated extra instruments on a record, including strings and piano on Weightless, xylophone on Weightless, and horns on Ice on the Wings. The versatility in song structure and instruments reflects a mature band that really knows how to write songs (Are You Lightning especially). The album is both fresh and grounded in the Nada Surf tradition, with exceptional drum work from Ira Elliot, hooking bass from Daniel Lorca, and ever improving vocals from Matthew Caws. Seriously, his vocals seem to get better every day.

I think the new album is absolutely phenomenal. It has all the rockin' elements of their earlier work, and includes some of the more innovative tracks you're likely to hear this year, especially The Fox. Please, please, please go see these guys live. They are amazing. And getting better with age.

Their live show itinerary is HERE.

The pasta crew will be in attendance April 11th at Terminal 5 in NYC and April 12th in D.C. at the 9:30 club. Come rock out with us.
