Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released five studio albums including, Together (2010), of which, NPR Music praised, “Unimpeachable pop gems…these are the songs of summer”. The melding of Newman’s voice is endlessly inventive, weaving in and out of the nervous-sounding rhythm that is the band’s calling card. Their latest work, Brill Bruisers, is the first new release in four years from the acclaimed supergroup. Of the new album, lead-singer and main songwriter AC Newman comments, “This 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. We wanted Xanadu and we wanted Sigue Sigue Sputnik, which translated into sparklier and faster.”
