Made you look……

This post isn’t X-rated, but instead features the innocently named “New Pornographers”…..better, right?!?!

This Canadian rock group, in my humble opinion, is one of the more under appreciated bands out there. With tracks featured on Rock Band and episodes of Weeds, Heroes and The Office you would think EVERYONE would know about them. Well I must tell you that there are a good amount of people who don’t. Go to your local starbucks and ask the barrista if he/she likes “new pornographers” and see what you look you receive in return. Let’s just say I hope you already have your Grande Soy Vanilla Chai Latte in hand and an exit plan in mind.

Anyway, despite, the unique band name, these Canuks…spelling?….are fantastic. They are equal parts Weepies, Mamas and Papas, the Shins and Spoon. I think anyone who can appreciate simple melodies, catchy riffs and clever lyrics will dig the New Pornographers. My favorite song off their new album , Together, is A Bite out of My Bed although the class favorite seems to be Your Hands (Together). You choose for yourself.

The Pornographers have a supergroup make-up, but with an understated groove and tight, catchy lyrics they represent a powerhouse of pop minus all that ego. I hope you like what you hear and download all they have to offer.

LISTEN TO IT!
