AUK’s Chain Gang: The New Pornographers “Sing Me Spanish Techno”

Clint’s entry for the Chain Gang last week, Simi Stone, is also a full-time member of The New Pornographers, an excellent outfit from Vancouver, Canada, having been a touring member for some years. One of their most popular songs – certainly in our house, at least – is ‘Sing Me Spanish Techno’ from the 2005 album, ‘Twin Cinema’. A song that could be about not getting into a rut, not repeating the same things over and over, not listening to the same music all the time, trying different things…“Listening too long to one song/Sing me Spanish techno….” Or not. It could simply be about nothing at all. But it still gets my offspring dancing around the room at parties. Which has to be a good thing. And yes, perhaps it does veer a little to the indie side of the room, but there is enough twangy guitar on this bouncy slice of Canadiana to have kept my brood happy for the past 15 years.

Can't get enough of this Americana stuff. Live or recorded, it's all good to me....
