New A.C. Newman Live Video – “The Changeling (Get Guilty)” (DUMBO Session)

In a few months, you might also recall Carl Newman's take on "The Changeling (Get Guilty)." The track's from the new solo album, conveniently out today… More »

A.C. Newman Covers The Go-Betweens

New Pornographer A.C. (Carl) Newman's pop-drenched Get Guilty, the followup to 2004's Slow Wonder, is out at the beginning of '09. You've already heard the opener "There Are Maybe Ten Or Twelve" and now there's maybe one or one Go-Betweens covers to add to the Newman canon. It's a non-album track. He did… More »

Canadian Indie Rockers Tell You How To Live Your Life

Not generally. Generally they just shape our lives by being arty and so great to listen to while wearing our tight jeans and other stereotypical things of that nature. I mean very specifically, there are some Canadian indie rockers who are literally dispensing life advice by taking over Amy Sedaris's "Sedaratives" column in the music… More »

Feist Gets Folks From Broken Social Scene, The National, Grizzly Bear, The New Pornographers, Mates Of State, And Nicole Atkins To Dress In White And Perform “1234” On Letterman

While our tech people are determining if that is the most post-title-characters in Stereogum history, set aside a few minutes and enjoy the spectacle: Feist and friends, on Letterman, doing "1234." Leslie sounds better than she did on Conan and all, and if you'd never heard her before last night you probably would've "ooh"ed"… More »

The New Pornographers Challenge Letterman To A Bout Of “My Rights Versus Yours”

It's been a few weeks since Carl & Christy's got hitched, so the New Pornographers had ample time to rest up after the NP nuptials and bring Challengers to Letterman's live studio audience last night. There's a Neko but no Destroyer (not with them on this NYC trip -- sorry Bowery Ballroom -- choosing… More »

New(lywed) Pornographer

Did any of you catch the invite-only Neko Case/Mates Of State show last night? Unless you work for Matador, play for the New Pornographers, or are related to Carl Newman, the answer to that is probably "no." That's 'cause that semi-secret gig was part of a larger party: chief-Porno-in-charge Carl Newman's wedding to Ms. Christy… More »

“It’s Good To Know Zach Braff Is Thinking Of (The New Pornographers)”

The New Pornographers' Challengers is a post-Evaluation champ, so we're always overjoyed when news related to the members of the Canadian power-pop supergroup slides across our desks.

Premature Evaluation: The New Pornographers – Challengers … And Live @ Battery Park, 7/4/07 … And “Myriad Harbour” MP3

Yesterday the New Pornographers helped us celebrate independence, today we return the favor and independently help celebrate the New Pornographers.
