Nada Surf - The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy
We’ll just let the title go, yeah? After almost twenty years of pop-rock riffery, New Yorkers Nada Surf have hit form again. Excellent third album, 2002’s ‘Let Go’ - containing career-highlight ‘Hi-Speed Soul’ which you’ll be wanting to hear - was their last to really soar. A change to the way they work, trying to capture the urgency of live performance or the first rehearsal, has reinvigorated the band. Matthew Caws has one of those gorgeous indie voices - think Death Cab’s Ben Gibbard - which stretches but doesn’t quite break. Coupled to joyous tunes like ‘Looking Through’, recorded in one take, it’s hard to resist.

7/10
