“Listening too long to one song”

In music videos, vinyl on Monday, 16 January, 2012 at 22:14


Song: Sing Me Spanish Techno
Artist: The New Pornographers
Album: Twin Cinema

Ah, juicy power pop bliss. Very strong song. They sometimes bug me with their lyrical obtuseness (nonsense?), but if it’s that bright and hooky as hell, you’re going to be singing along, however arcane the words. The “through” and “you” prior to the chorus in the respective verses are just golden, to say nothing of the chorus, to say nothing of the irresistibility of all of the above. Warm group vocals and harmonies are everywhere (not just on the chorus), which may not affect the air temperature much, but it kinda of feels like sunnier days are closer than they really are, or at least there’s something to look forward to.

I must be out of it– six years since the album release, I never knew there was a video. The “I love you” just after 4:00 is terribly goofy, but I guess it fits the spirit of the video.
