The more I listen to CBC Radio 3’s podcast, the more I like what I hear. This week introduced me to Vancouver’s The New Pornographers. They’re not anything close to new, but they’re new to me, and it’s another band you’ll never hear any place that plays a “Your station is a Standard Radio station” as part of its programming.
Their website has a bunch of tracks available for download in the “audio/video” section, and a video or two as well. Their latest CD, which was released last week, is available on iTunes, which includes a bonus track if you buy from there. They remind me a little bit of early Weezer with a little more punch/emotion and something electric that I can’t quite put my finger on. More good stuff, and another $10.00 from the iTunes account.
I’m going to have to start listening to university radio again, I think.
