  Todd Fancey - new mp3, NEMO performance
my love affair with The New Pornographers is, though never consistent, at least never-ending. i mean this truly. i think it's lovely pop with such a pleasant canadian punch to it (there is such a thing, just trust me) and i'm never sorry when i put them on and spin it a few times, whether that's Twin Cinema, Electric Version... anything.

so when i hear one of its members - in this case, Todd Fancey - is doing anything solo, i jump on board. i have faith in his contribution to the band as a whole, and so i am totally willing to give it all a try.

but attention my special beautiful Boston readers! NEMO is offering Todd Fancey at Bill's Bar on September 29th, showcasing his new material which has been quoted as being "soft rock that rocks." here is more:
Though his influences are on his sleeve, Fancey sounds like nothing else. It's sunny, bouncy, but with a certain sadness to the lyrics. It's classic rock for the indie rock set...that invokes the names Beach Boys, Todd Rundgren, Emitt Rhodes, and The Association. But it's never effete, and it's never twee. It's a grown up sound that reels you in with its infectious melodies and delicious arrangments.

sounds good to me; and i think you'll like it too.

Todd's stuff is just great, rich stuff.
I heard these duo from Baton Rouge, La, Bones. Very raw and bluesy, very impressive.

Todd is right about the freshness way of music: angst is raw and rots quickly, we all want happiness, so much we grow melancholy over it.
