Carl and the Pornos (minus Neko and Bejar) brought their new album cover but none of the record’s tunes with them to Coachella, so “My Rights Versus Yours” is our first taste as it is yours from the forthcoming full-length Challengers. The track dashes some Beach Boys (yes the reference point of choice for ’07 indie) with the Twin Cinema power-pop chugging we all adore. (via Buy Early Get Now)
Challengers is out 8/21 on Matador.
RELATED: Neko sub (and Carl Newman niece) Kathryn Calder’s band Immaculate Machine has their second full-length Fables out on 6/12 on Mint, and we’re spinning “Dear Confessor” next to non-stop these days. Have a listen at Hype for proof that quality indie-pop runs in the blood.
