“The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy”
One of my favorite bands (which will remain nameless) has a problem, they cannot mature gracefully. If my favorite band took the trajectory that Nada Surf has, they might still have a shred of respect. Nada Surf’s 2012 release is fantastic, deep, enjoyable, and mature. The clean vocals and guitars sparkle while the lyrics reflect like a wise adult might. Does Nada Surf offer lessons to other mid-90s bands that need to learn how to mature? I hope so.
Favorite Track: Waiting For Something
