It’s been a few years since The New Pornographers’ last release, 2010’s excellent Together. I’ve always been a fan of TNP and how AC Newman, Neko Case and the rest bring their varied and evolving musical styles to the project. Also very cool that they’re getting into the deluxe-vinyl game with what is described as a limited “paint-splatter” and “multi-colored” vinyl offering, depending on which website you order it from. Order now and also get a poster & 3D glasses! Check out the new single below and catch them out on tour later this year –
Note: still trying to get an exact # of limited/deluxe records pressed, will update when I get the info.
Deluxe LP comes on multi-colored vinyl and includes 3D glasses and poster.
Both LP versions include MP3 download coupon.
Brill Bruisers is the first new release in four years from the acclaimed supergroup, who have been called, â€śvirtually peerless in the world of power-pop and indie-rockâ€ť by NPR Music. Additionally, the New Yorker describes the bandâ€™s music as, â€ś...magnificent and cleverâ€¦,â€ť while Stereogum proclaims, â€śIn recent history, no group has featured so much formidable established talent, collaborating on a regular basis.â€ť
Of the album, lead-singer and main songwriter AC Newman comments, â€śThis is a celebration record. After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down and the music reflects that. Iâ€™m grateful.â€ť Produced by band-members John Collins (bass) with Newman, the 12-track album was recorded primarily at Little Blue in Woodstock, NY and at JC/DC Studios in Vancouver B.C. with additional recording in Austin, Brooklyn and Vermont.
