~The New Pornographers~
My Favorite Albums: Twin Cinema, The Challengers
Why I love them: Interestingly, listening to their music makes me feel like I'm living my life in a modern-day musical. Not just because the lyrics usually tell stories, but because the instrumental arrangement has a twinge of HAIR! in it, and makes me want to go back in time and become a hippy tree-hugger for a little while. I always listen to this band when I need a good pick-me-up. The following song is one of my favorites. I hope you have a listen! The video clip is interesting too ... very much representative of a creative mind (and writer's brain!)
Have you heard of The New Pornographers? If so, do you feel how I do about them? If not, why do you like their music? Do you know any other bands/musicians that tell stories in their songs?
