Patience rewarded....

Neko Case, and, oh yeah, The New Pornographers

Ah ha, me 1, impatience 0. If you've spent any time with me at all, then you know that I am quite impatient, in particular to music. I also suffer from music ADD. This is relevant because just today, Emusic picked up The New Pornographers' latest record, Challengers. Released in August, I have held out 1) Because I am patient, 2) I knew Emusic would get it eventually and 3) I was enthralled with other stuff. I just picked up the album and am spinning it for the second time. I had heard My Rights Versus Yours and enjoyed it, so here it is for your satisfaction. The second song I'll post is called Adventures In Solitude, something quite apt considering I just finished Into The Wild.

The New Pornographers -- My Rights Versus Yours
The New Pornographers -- Adventures In Solitude

I'll hold off on a review as of now because 1) It's too early to have digested, 2) I suck at reviews and 3) Twin Cinema was a great album and will be tough to top.

These damn supergroups from Canada keep churning out indie/pop rock music that I can stomach. Damn them......
