New Pornographers | Challengers
This Vancouver supergroup's third album, Twin Cinema got me interested in their smileyindiepop sound, I listened to that album a lot back in 2005. The new record, Challengers, has got me hooked, line and many singers. The hooks are there, the harmonies are always gorgeous, and a heaping dose of strings and keyboards hold together the collectively written songs. I've been listening to "All the Old Showstoppers" pretty much non-stop this week. Did you know that Neko Case and Dan Bejar from Destroyer were in the New Pornographers, as well as AC Newman and Todd Fancey? Of course you did. That's why I knew I liked you. - TK
