DJ Archive Picks: Nada Surf, James Blake, The Decemberists

DJ Archive Picks: Russ Borris chooses Nada Surf from 2012, James Blake from 2011, and The Decemberists from 2006 (pictured)

The Decemberists: October 2, 2006

At the time of its release, 'Picaresque' was (and still is) my favorite Decemberists record. They did a few from that album acoustic, plus an impromptu short cover of their guest DJ pick, ELO's "Do Ya!" The Decemberists - Words and Music - 2006

James Blake: May 11, 2011

There was so much buzz surrounded James Blake's debut and his focus on the dubstep sound. To watch these songs evolve live in the studio was a serious validation of that buzz. James Blake - Words and Music - 2011

Nada Surf: January 25, 2012

This was a great night at Rockwood Music Hall. The band was in great form in front of a very happy WFUV Marquee member audience.
