Nada Surf Covers Album Tracklist, Free “Electrocution” MP3


Nada Surf proudly announce that following their spring tour – where if i had a hi-fi will initially only be available for purchase at shows – they will release their forthcoming covers album on CD/LP and digitally June 8th via the bands own label, Mardev Records, with distribution through ADA. To give fans a preview of the new album Nada Surf are making their take on Bill Fox’s “Electrocution” available for free download. Nada Surf‘s spring tour kicks off on March 25th with three sold-out New York shows, and concludes in late May with a performance at the 2010 Sasquatch Music Festival.

“Electrocution” is available for download at the link below.

if i had a hi-fi is full of inspired, unexpected choices: from avant-pop Kate Bush to underground power-pop classicist Dwight Twilley. There are some intriguingly obscure numbers, like Spanish band Mercromina’s “Evolution” and under-documented Bill Fox’s “Electrocution.” The as yet little known Fox, of Cleveland cult band The Mice, inspired local groups like Guided by Voices and Death of Samantha. Doug Gillard, who was in both of them, lends his highly evolved guitar skills to “Electrocution” as well as the Twilley and Go-Betweens songs.

That was another benefit of these sessions. Says lead singer and guitarist Matthew Caws, “It was a great excuse to have friends of ours sit in on something without having to wait another two years.” Guest players include Martin Wenk (Calexico), Phil Peterson (Kay Kay and the Weathered Underground), Joe McGinty (Losers Lounge, Psychedelic Furs) and Holly Miranda.
