New Nada Surf – “Whose Authority” (Live At Apple Store Chicago, 10/20/07)

While we were struggling to stay standing in NYC on CMJ’s last day, relatively fresh-legged Chicagoans went for a free Nada Surf at a stripped, Apple instore performance. DJMixMaster captured the whole show (seven songs), and broke it into 10-min. segments per YouTube restrictions. In the middle of part #1 we get the jangly new tune “Whose Authority,” from Caws & Co.’s forthcoming Barsuk LP LUCKY.

“Concrete Bed” > “Whose Authority” > “What Is Your Secret”

Fan faves “Blizzard of ’77” and “Always Love” below.


“Blizzard of ’77” > “I Like What You Say” > “Always Love” [cut-off]

“Always Love” [cont.] > “Blonde On Blonde”
