The 10 Best New Pornographers Songs
The Laws Have Changed chords & tabs by New Pornographers @ Tabs
Three years after the sonic honey of Mass Romantic , the New Pornographers come up smiling once more with their sophomore effort and Matador debut, Electric Version. These beloved indie rockers stick with the syrupy goodness found on their first album, but opt to turn the amps up for a brighter, slicker sound, hence the title. It's a kitschy play on the band's power pop, and Carl Newman and secret member Dan Bejar keep their clever lyrical twists in tune. While Mass Romantic was a little more quirky in spirit, Electric Version is more polished. They took just under a year to create this album, so naturally a fresh confidence would transpire and "The Laws Have Changed" highlights the New Pornographers ' musical growth. This album standout is bold as brass, drenched in Case and Newman 's perky vocals.

Not longer after that first album, Case started to earn some accolades on her own, thereby raising the group's profile, which meant that their second album, 's Electric Version , garnered more attention than their debut. But by that point, the band had its own word-of-mouth following, large enough to attract the attention of indie rock standard-bearer Matador, who not only released the New Pornographers ' sophomore effort, but Newman 's superb solo album The Slow Wonder in the summer of All this set the stage for the group's third album, Twin Cinema , which arrived in late summer to rather high expectations -- after all, they not only had two fine records underneath their belt, but The Slow Wonder was also well regarded and earned some airtime on The OC to boot , so the time seemed ripe for a masterpiece from the New Pornographers. By that standard, Twin Cinema is a disappointment, since it does not constitute either a definitive statement or a great leap forward, but by nearly every other measure, it's a success.
