Song of the Day
Today’s Song of the Day comes from Canada’s New Pornographers – It’s Only Divine Right. A Canadian supergroup led by Carl Newman, and ably assisted by Neko Case, Dan Bejar, and others, it started as a one-off side project, and (thankfully) never went away. This is from their second album, Electric Version (2003) which is chock full of excellent indie power pop songs, as is their whole catalog. Many great songs to choose from. Today’s offering is sunny indie power pop with perfect harmonies and ringing guitar. If you like this one, try The Laws Have Changed next. And then on to Mass Romantic. And then ….. Up first is the album version. There’s also a video of the band doing the song live at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC on June 22, 2010 so you can see what they look like.
