New Pornographers with Ought
The New Pornographers have a new full length album called Whiteout Conditions coming out on April 7. Its the first release on the bands own Collected Works Records.
About the new albums first single, NPR declares, Hold on tight: its another relentlessly exuberant, propulsive jam from The New Pornographers. The latest in the bands deep catalog of clever and addictive power pop is High Ticket Attractions,
Of the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesnt sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Lets try and rock in a different way.
Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released six studio albums including their most recent, Brill Bruisers, hailed as an exuberant, synthpop-infused set by Rolling Stone, infectious by Harpers Bazaar and the grand and purposeful hookfest that you would hope these guys would come back with by Stereogum. Pitchfork went on to note that with the futurist sound of Brill Bruisers, the whole band embraces a more electric version of itself-bulked-up in chrome-plated armor, firing on all cylinders, and ready to steamroll anything in its path. The band celebrated the release with a special NPR Music First Listen Live concert at the legendary Brill Building, and performed songs from the album on both Conan and the Late Show with David Letterman.
