Ten random things: March 5

Ten albums featuring members of the New Pornographers:
  1. Destroyer - This Night (Dan Bejar)
  2. Immaculate Machine - Ones and Zeroes (Kathryn Calder)
  3. Neko Case - Middle Cyclone
  4. The Evaporators - Ripple Rock (John Collins)
  5. Age of Electric - Make a Pest a Pet (Kurt Dahle)
  6. Fancey - Schmancey (Todd Fancey)
  7. Zumpano - Look What the Rookie Did (Carl Newman)
  8. Hello, Blue Roses - The Portrait is Finished... (Dan Bejar)
  9. Maow - The Unforgiving Sounds of Maow (Neko Case)
  10. A. C. Newman - The Slow Wonder (Carl Newman)

I just got the third album on this list, Neko Case's latest, and it's great. Well, the last track, "Marais La Nuit," is a little too experimental for my tastes; it's 30 minutes of frog and cricket sounds, recorded, if the title can be believed, in a marsh at night. But the first single. "People Got a Lotta Nerve," is a lot of fun, and her cover of Harry Nilsson's "Dont Forget Me" is stunning.
