The Tryout: The New Pornographers
WIth Lala.com being down, I can't post albums anymore but that doesn't mean I can't stop recommending some bands. The New Pornographers have a new record out and this indie supergroup is definitely worth a listen. Most people think to seem that "Challengers" was a step up but from what I heard of it, I preferred their previous songs. But I just bought "Together" (the new album) and "Challengers" so maybe it will grow on me. Anyway, they are one of my favorite bands of the 2000's and below are a few of their songs (including their new single "Your Hangs (Together)". I'd definitely recommend checking them out.
And speaking of new music, Pitchfork has Trent Reznor's latest project, How to Destroy Angels' first song. I have to agree with one of the comments - hearing a female voice instead of Trent's is a bit odd. Also, it's missing the emotion (usually anguish) of Trent's voice. At the very least, it's still good background music.
