Turn on the A.C.


As you know the PowerPop crew is absolutely bananas about the New Pornographers, so it was wonderful news to hear that NP majordomo A.C. Newman has a new solo disc out. Released last week on the mighty Matador label, it's another blast of his trademark baroque pop.

Of course, I just ordered a copy of Get Guilty, so I have not listened to it in its entirety, but the clips I have heard have been very encouraging. It's been a long wait since his 2004 release Slow Wonder, but it appears the wait has been worth it.

Just noticed he's playing live on WFMU Cherry Blossom Clinic radio show Saturday afternoon!

Sorry, guys, just him - no Neko. ;)
