No matter how technology progresses, there's something about the smooth black grooves of a vinyl record that just hug you a little closer than the cold plastic casing of a CD. And happily, soon you can get that warm, fuzzy feeling with all of Nada Surf's studio albums -- including Lucky, released this past February -- as the collection is released in a limited edition vinyl boxed set on November 25.
With just 1,000 copies made worldwide, each set is numbered and contains all five albums on vinyl, a repressing of the first 7" single and a full-color, 24-page lyric and photo book and download codes for The Proximity Effect, Let Go, The Weight is a Gift, Lucky and a collection of rare and out-of-print bonus tracks and b-sides. Head to Barsuk to pre-order and your box set will arrive around the release date (the download codes will be sent to you within 24 hours of ordering).
While you're biding time for your box set to be dropped on your door step, you can check out the winner of the Nada Surf/You Tube "Weightless" video contest here, or of course make plans to catch the band at one of their upcoming gigs supporting Lucky.
