The New Pornographers

For the record, I follow only two Twitter accounts, Gabe Delahaye (editor and primary contributor to my favorite non-music blog Videogum) and his dog, Birdie.

This morning Gabe ‘tweeted’ a link to The New Pornographers’ music video for ‘Move’ and its pretty great. (Gabe himself makes an appearance at minute 1:52)(Also, other funny people make their appearance at minute 0:00 – 4:20)

I actually wanted to write about Together ever since it came out last May, but finals, summer, etc, seemed to get in the way. Together was an album that seemed to get swallowed up amidst a sea of just fantastic albums being released at that time. (Remember how great 2010 was?) However, I was able to spend a good nine-hour drive with it on a trip to Utah and genuinely loved it. Its absolutely solid and with the amount of talent within The New Pornographers, you really shouldn’t expect anything less than a fantastically constructed album. So now, while I wait for The Animal Years to arrive in the mail, I’m determined to give Together the attention it deserved.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s noticed this… but a lot of the artists who made records that rocked my world in 2007 have happened to also make records that are rocking my world in 2010. It’s like they’re on the same creative cycle or something. I thought I’d throw a few of them together for you:

mp3: Spoon – You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb (2007)

mp3: Spoon – Written In Reverse (2010)

mp3: LCD Soundsystem – North American Scum (2007)

mp3: LCD Soundsystem – Pow Pow (2010)

mp3: Josh Ritter – The Temptation Of Adam (2007)

mp3: Josh Ritter – The Curse (2010)

mp3: The National – Green Gloves (2007)

mp3: The National – Bloodbuzz Ohio (2010)

mp3: The New Pornographers – Challengers (2007)

mp3: The New Pornographers – If You Can’t See My Mirrors (2010)

mp3: Arcade Fire – Intervention (2007)

mp3: Arcade Fire – The Suburbs (2010)

mp3: Panda Bear – Comfy In Nautica (2007)

mp3: Panda Bear – Tomboy (2010)

So admittedly, those last two are a bit anticipatory – I’m only hoping that their new albums are as amazing as their 2007 counterparts… but I’m not too worried. Now we just need another record from Feist, The Moonbabies, and Radiohead (maybe!?) to round off my list…
