Musical guest on Letterman tonight: our good neighbors to the north, the New Pornographers. Doing, presumably, a song from Challengers (their new album, out tomorrow). Apparently, it's a bit of a departure in that its heavy on the un-ironic lovesongs. Everybody's already heard it but me, of course.
In the meantime, check out this very interesting interview with head Pornographer A.C. Newman in the current New York Magazine. Poor bastard lives in Brooklyn now; somebody really should telll him that Althouse just crashed the neighborhood.
