I'm currently in a bit of a NP obsessive period, having listened to Twin Cinema non-stop for weeks. I also got Electric Version but I'm finding not as incedibly addictive and catchy as Twin Cinema. Is this just me or shall I give it more time? I haven't found a 'Sing Me Spanish Techno' yet, y'know, the kind of song that works its way into your head and embeds itself there and will just not go away, even if you wanted it to.
Also, can anyone recommened me any solo work by A.C. Newman or Neko Case (or any of the others, really) or any other bands related to, in some way, to The New Pornographers. I found (thanks to last.fm's recommendation thing) Immaculate Machines, and their album 'Ones and Zeros' - they share the same keyboardist with NP, or something. Very much like NP but a bit more sparse, but I like just as much.
