mass romantic

listening to the new pornographers this morning and very much grooving on them. trying to find a comparison to another act, but nothing fits. talking heads? maybe the beach boys meet dexies midnight riders meet ... who? how do you describe neko case? similar to the other nico, maybe? maybe i just like the idea that neko case is a diminutive red haired girl.

clearly, i find them indescribable and completely palatable.

noise, melody, psychedelic (which i normally do not enjoy).

choice lines:

"mass romantic fool wears foster grants
his books on tape ring true
like everyone wants to say i love you to someone on the radio"

"the tune you'll be humming forever
all the words are replaced and wrong
with a shower of yeahs and whatevers
you trade me away long gone

where have all the sensations gone?
it's the song, the song, the song that's shaking me"
