2010 is the year of all our favorite bands re-surging... first BSS and now The New Pornographers
, whose next record Together
is due in May. First single "Your Hands (Together)" sounds like the Twin Cinema
screening with a Dead Weather lens... but the wonderfully nostalgic power-pop these guys do best (which we filmed
in '07), happily, stays in the foreground. Give it a listen after the jump.
The core lineup (A.C. Newman, Dan Bejar, Kathryn Calder, Neko Case, John Collins, Kurt Dahle, Todd Fancey, and Blaine Thurier) will be joined by the eclectic likes of Annie Clark, Zach Condon, Will Sheff, the Dap-Kings horns, and cetera (according to the Gum). Chew on the track list and head over to the Matador site to preorder
is out on 5/4. -joe puglisi
