Nothing will ever compare to the dragjacking that is Sing Me Spanish Techno, though.

Oh, that made me laugh. Love it. Agree about Sing me Spanish Techno, too.

Tom Scharpling's video for Ted Leo's "Colleen" is over the top.

And his video for "Bottled in Cork" is way broad.

Here To Stay – Denim Clad Dad

I didn't even know my dad made a record. Or that Horatio Sanz is looking really good these days.

Ben Garant's cameo was too short, otherwise, that was really well done.

Wow. The New Pornographers are even cooler than me than I realized. They're so cool that they were into me before I was.

That said, I'm so cool that I was into the New Pornographers before they ever made any music. And when they finally did, I was already over it.

We Won’t Forget You (GG’s Song)

So amazing.

pretty good, but doesn't top the drunken backyard bender of My Slow Descent Into Alchoholism

But it does it feature Kristen Schaal as the President of the United States?

Surprised this hasn't been linked. See New Pornagraphers twice, despite only owning (and loving) Electric Version.

They're robots live, even with Case in tow. Great records, though.

I didn't recognize Horation Sanz. Homeboy has been doing his pilates.

If I'm ever a rock star I'm totally gonna put cocaine on my pizza.

Seen New Pornographers twice, despite only owning (and loving) Electric Version.

There is heated (for A/V nerds, anyway) debate over the merits of the two most recent albums, but Twin Cinema is straight up one of the finest rock albums of the past decade.
