I HEART (the new) PORN(ographers)

I've known about these guys for a while and have had their albums for some time now but lately I REALLY got into The New Pornographers. They are a "super group" from Vancouver and members include A.C. Newman and Neko Case as well as 2 guys from Limblifter. My buddy Glen introduced them to me with their second album Electric Version. It's really good. After that, A.C. Newman released a solo disc, The Slow Wonder, which is actually as good as the New Pornographers albums. TNP released a third album last year which I think is excellent and was rated one of the top albums of 2005.
As for the music, it's very pop rockish but with really good harmonics and nice little riffs and stuff.
I highly recommend them to listen to.
