Nada Surf has visited the Current many times in their 20-year career, most recently in April to promote their 2012 album, The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy. This time around, the New York alt-rock band left their instruments in the bus and brought their record collection instead. Steve Seel sat down with Matt, Ira, Doug and Daniel as they hijacked our radio airwaves to share their hand-picked playlist.
