You Have To Be As Attractive As Possible

Nada Surf is releasing a new album in conjunction with a tour commencing in late March. In other words, you need to be at the concert to get the album if i had a hi-fi (although a digital release is expected sometime thereafter) - a covers compilation with some interesting choices.

“Electrocution” (Bill Fox)
“Enjoy the Silence” (Depeche Mode)
“Love Goes On” (The Go-Betweens)
“Janine” (Arthur Russell)
“You Were So Warm” (Dwight Twilley)
“Love and Anger” (Kate Bush)
“The Agony of Laffitte” (Spoon)
“Bye Bye Beaute” (Coralie Clement)
“Question” (Moody Blues)
“Bright Side” (Soft Pack)
“Evolution” (Mercromina)
“I Remembered What I Was Going to Say” (The Silly Pillows)
They've graciously provided Electrocution as a free download just to get you excited. No official release of their much-shared cover of OMD's If You Leave, but you can find that at the link below. Go to their official site to get the full list of shows, some of which are already sold out. I saw them back when they were "popular" but I never appreciated them as I do now.
