Nada Surf If I Had A Hi-Fi on LP
2010's If I Had A Hi-Fi is a Nada Surf covers album chock full of inspired, unexpected choices ranging from takes on avant-pop Kate Bush to underground power-pop classicist Dwight Twilley. There are also some intriguingly obscure numbers, like Spanish band Mercromina's "Evolution" and under-documented Bill Fox's "Electrocution." The remainder of the 12-track expedition is rounded out by stylized versions of cuts by The Go-Betweens, Depeche Mode, Arthur Russell, Spoon, and more. Guest players include Martin Wenk (Calexico), Phil Peterson (Kay Kay and the Weathered Underground), Joe McGinty (Losers Lounge, Psychedelic Furs) and Holly Miranda.
