Bear with me. I'm having major issues with my internet provider and a web giant that begins with a "G." Hopefully, it will be solved soon, but until then posting here will be sporadic, at best. Hence the super-short review.
I had a chance to listen to some the latest New Pornographers album, Together, and while A.C. Newman and crew aren't exactly breaking new ground, it's definitely a contender for a lot of year-end best lists. Their "more is more" approach is still strong, but they do it well, and are one of the few contemporary bands worthy of the power pop label.
