Matador Records has released a free mp3 from the upcoming cd, Together, from The New Pornographers. In their descripto-blurb about the release is an interesting note: “they are also unable, it seems, to resist the challenge to make a perfect album, a form so dead that it is on its seventh wave of maggotry.”
The rest of the paragraph is worse. I wonder if A.C. Newman read it and how he would react to it. I’m so over this kind of writing. Who, exactly, is impressed by “curious about what the ineradicable contemporary moment sounds like.” WTF is it supposed to mean?
Oh well. The song has that peppy New Pornographers feel. So listen, then have an ineradicable contemporary moment. OK?
