Live Clip: The New Pornographers on "Letterman"

Live Clip: The New Pornographers on "Letterman"

It's been a big week for AC Newman, frontman of The New Pornographers. His band's latest album, Challengers, hit stores. His band performed live on "Late Show with David Letterman." And, oh yeah, he got married in a New York Times-documented ceremony with the likes of Neko Case, David Cross and Mates of State entertaining at the reception. Nice life, huh?

I ran out to pick up Challengers as soon as I left work yesterday, and while I still need to spend some more time with the album before issuing my final verdict, I'm already a big fan of "My Rights Versus Yours," which the group performed on "Letterman." It's great to see them performing with Neko Case — she wasn't touring with them the last time I saw them live — and it made me even more excited to see them here in San Francisco next month. To watch the "Letterman" performance,

I am thinking the album is going to grow on me- I like it but don't LOOOVE it the way that I love their other stuff. I'm going to give it several listens.

I love the New Pornographers. I've had Challengers for over a month now but have only listened to it once. I need to find time to listen again. *Sigh* I have too much music to keep up with sometimes. If only this pesky job didn't get in the way. :rotfl:
