Thursday June 28th, Exitmusic headlined a packed show at Mercury Lounge, with opener Stagnant Pools.

I saw husband/wife band Exitmusic once before, opening for School of Seven Bells. This time, though, I noticed a few more songs that were really catchy: “The Modern Age” and “The Night.” The audience seemed to react better to the songs with clearer, more easily decipherable vocals.

The guitar notes in “The Modern Age” build a tension that resolves halfway through the first chorus with the introduction of the snare drum beat, and the vocal repetition of “Oh, on the run from the modern age” really hooks the listener in.

Nada Surf: Troubadour Concert Recap

Nada Surf played two sold-out shows at LA’s Troubadour on Tuesday and Wednesday (May 25th and 26th).

The band played a mix of old and new songs. They played songs from previous albums such as “Happy Kid,” “Blizzard of ’77,” “Inside of Love,” “Do It Again,” and “Always Love.” “Electrocution” was their best new song.

Unfortunately, they didn’t play “The Way You Wear Your Head,” “I Like What You Say,” or their cover of “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.” They did, however, play a great cover of “I Fought The Law.”
