Song of the Week 9/16/06

Nada Surf - "Blankest Year"

This song has become my favorite tune on Nada Surf's The Weight Is a Gift. And as I got myself mentally ready for ACL, I knew they would play it during their set. What I didn't know was that they'd be joined by two horn players from Calexico--who blasted the riff at top volume--causing me to jump around and dance with pure joy. But I did stop to get a pic:



Aw fuck it, it WAS a party. I'll have more about the party that was my trip to Austin in the Top 20 this year.
