NADA SURF’s if i had a hi-fi IN STORES TODAY JUNE 8th

In an innovative approach that bucked conventional wisdom when it comes to album release schedules, Nada Surf’s covers album if i had a hi-fi has so far only been available at their live shows as a treat for fans that came out to see them play on their recent tour dates. Today the album lands on the shelves of local record stores as a CD and also luscious 180 gram Double LP with 3 bonus tracks. It is also available for download at digital retail outlets. The critically acclaimed covers album has gained the kind of reception usually reserved for self-penned releases on account of Nada Surf’s beautiful renditions of the eclectic mix of songs on the album.

“Admittedly, cover albums are usually a contractual cop-out, but the diverse scope and amount of thought put into each track on if i had a hi-fi prevents it from sounding superfluous or self-indulgent. Instead, highlights such as the trio’s energetic, synthesizer-augmented version of Depeche Mode’s new-wave anthem ‘Enjoy The Silence’ and their stripped-down, more traditional version of Arthur Russell’s gem ‘Janine’ add new emotional resonance to the original versions without sacraficing any of these musicians’ artistic vision.”

“An organic detour down memory lane rather than an ortanized statement of their influences, say Nada Surf. True, nothing fuses these disparate strands beyond some gorgeous tunes.”

“They successfully transform Depeche Mode’s ‘Enjoy The Silence’ into a power-pop anthem, while Matthew Caws’ plaintive take on Kate Bush’s ‘Love And Anger’ is as smart as the album’s palindromic title.”
