Nada Surf are still alive! And still making music. And kindly offering a free, legal, nine-track album download. I especially like the song “When I Was Young,” which is also featured on the band’s new album, The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy. My generation knows Nada Surf best for their mid-90s hit “Popular,” but they also became somewhat of a TV soundtrack staple (The O.C., One Tree Hill, etc.) in the early aughts. You can access the new mp3s by entering your email address into the NoiseTrade widget below. You will then be given the option of donating to the band.
