Sunday Spoon #2 (Sunday Shuffle #371)

I know I already did one of these about 6 months ago but last night I read that Spoon played an afterparty of their show (which was a Spoon cover band playing 2 whole albums). That's awesome and it makes me want to listen to their equally awesome music. So, I'm going to do that...

Sunday Smut (Sunday Shuffle #370)

Today's shuffle focuses on The New Pornographers. I've been a fan ever since I grabbed Electric Version, their second album. All six of their albums are full of melodic power pop/pop music with multiple singers and songwriters (Carl Newman, Dan Bejar, and Neko Case being the most prominent members). If you don't know them, you should definitely check them out (as well as their side projects/solo albums). The play counts for the first three albums will be low as I only recently ripped them to iTunes. Rest assured, those songs have been played dozens of times. In fact, Twin Cinema is one of my favorite albums ever. I also listened to Brill Bruisers a bunch on Spotify before I got my own digital copy. Anyway, enough dissembling about play counts, I'm ready to listen to these songs...

1. From Blown Speakers (2) - from Electric Version
2. Moves (18) - from Together
3. Use It (2) - from Twin Cinema
4. Falling Through You Clothes (2) - from Twin Cinema
