New Pornographers, The - Twin Cinema [LP]


$ 19.98 


The third album from Vancouver pop
maestros The New Pornographers
continues to feature Neko Case and Dan
Bejar (Destroyer) as well as new vocalists
Kathryn Calder and Nora O'Connor. Fans
of 'Mass Romantic's' kinkiness will find
immediate appeal, as will those partial to
'Electric Version's' drive.
Yet the songs on 'Twin Cinema' veer more
toward the rocking and the personal than
the sugar of the earlier work. Chief
singer / songwriter A.C. Newman has
absorbed not just the mechanics of
classic songwriting - but the heart, while
indulging his admiration of demented
current bands like Fiery Furnaces and
Frog Eyes. Expect to hear influences from
the Moody Blues, Tubeway Army, Wings,
Eno, the Stranglers, 10cc and other
greats, all filtered through Newman's
warped worldview. A more mature but still
enormously fun record that will see more
touring and promotion than ever before.
