Sickeningly catchy

Brian Eno said of The Velvet Underground that everyone who bought their first record started a band. It’s true of a lot of albums. The New Pornographers, on the other hand, tend to be so tight, so inventive – so sickeningly catchy – that even contemplating songwriting becomes an act of masochism. If you are able to listen to their sublime power-pop without falling to the floor in a fit of jealousy, then catch them Lido, which should just about fit the parade of members, which includes indie darling and personal hero, Neko Case.
