    Mass Romantic by the New Pornographers. There was no music video available and all the live versions exclude Neko Case since she rarely tours with them. This song is just so upbeat, even uplifting to me, in start contrast to her solo stuff which is most often very poignant.

    This is just an awesome band when they're all together. If all of them didn't have so many side projects, I think the New Pornographers would be super stars.

    Love you can call me Al. It was especially good to hear at the basketball games when Al Horford was there.

    Speaking Al Horford, who tears their pec twice? That has got to suck for him.

    Not all that familiar with the New Pornographers. I see their name around a lot though.

    Side projects seem to be the thing everyone is doing these days. Heck Jack White's career is just a collection of side projects.

    New Pornographers are pure power pop. It's probably more accurate to label them a side project, or even a super group, since most of them were prominent in other bands or as solo artists before they joined NP. Current members are Dan Bejar and John Collins from Destroyer, Todd Fancey of Limblifter, film maker Blaine Thurrier, solo artists A.C. Newman and Neko Case. Newman's niece, Kathryn Calder of Immaculate Machine joined the band mostly as a touring replacement for Neko, but has been recording with them for the last few albums along with Neko. Apparently all these people are household names in the Canadian scene, though I was only familiar with Case, A.C. Newman, Destroyer and Immaculate Machine. Little known fact about Neko Case; Before she started her country career in Nashville, she was a drummer in the Vancouver punk and twee scene. I've got some from Cub in my iTunes library. They were a pretty cool twee band from the 90s.

    The entire Canadian scene is like that. Broken Social Scene is a similar project, but not quite as consistent. They've had the same problem as New Pornographers since Leslie Feist's solo career exploded.

    FYI, Neko's new album is awesome. Just saw that Time ranked it the 5th best album of the year. You gotta hear her cover Robyn Hitchcock's Madonna of the Wasps.

    If I won the lottery, I'd buy a drum kit, take lessons every day for a year, then move to Vancouver to start a band. I'd try to get my daughter to be in my band, but she won't even go to the studio to practice with me.

    Even if she wouldn't play with you she should at least follow for the film opportunities she could find there.

    One of my favorite bands of the year is Canadian. Japandroids.

    Japandroids blew my mind at Pitchfork last summer. They played on the Balance Stage, which is smaller, shadier and usually features mellower acts. They followed some trippy, downbeat electronic duo. Then those guys got on stage and just electrified the audience. Maybe electrocuted is a better word for it.
