Set List

  • "So Much Love"
  • "Friend Hospital"
  • "Something I Should Do"

Most people's first brush with the band Nada Surf was with its quirky, spoken word-driven hit "Popular." But if you dismissed the band as a novelty act, then you've missed out on a group that's been delivering consistently smart, hooky alt-rock goodness to the masses for more than 25 years. On the group's latest album, Never Not Together, the band even revisits its spoken word roots on "Something I Should Do."

In this session, we're joined by Matthew Caws, Daniel Lorca, Ira Elliot, and Louie Lino in front of a live studio audience. Hear it in the player above.
