I think we’re all in need of a little ear candy this morning. Here’s something that’s been stuck in my head lately – The New Pornographers’ cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Think About Me”. It’s a Christine McVie piece of pop fluff from Tusk that for some reason Lindsey Buckingham thought would shine with minimal production. All that did was make the song sound even more inconsequential than it already was.
The Pornographers go the other way and out-Mac the Macsters (dig those shimmering rhythm guitars pushing things along). It’s poppy but it’s so exuberant and there’s so much going on that you overlook the fluffiness.
See? Life doesn’t suck so much, does it?
Me loves Neko Case, by the way.
