Over the course of five studio albums, Nada Surf has built a discography full of driving rhythms, great guitar riffs and incredibly sincere and honest lyrics. But after the optimistic Lucky, the trio has taken an unexpected turn. With the same careful attention to harmony and craftsmanship that's marked Nada Surf's career, If I Had a Hi-Fi is a collection of cover songs. In this session from World Cafe, Nada Surf performs its own takes on The Go-Betweens, Depeche Mode and Bill Fox.
