The New Pornographers
Together
(Matador)
Releasing: 4 May


In advance of their new album due in May, the New Pornographers have dropped a few pop chestnuts from Together for your listening pleasure. In the egalitarian spirit for which the indie collective is known, the leaked tracks include “Your Hands (Together)”, a head-bobbing multi-vocalist number, and “The Crash Years”, one of those Neko Case sing-alongs that make you wish she’d make a whole album of pop songs (it’s available for purchase at iTunes). If these two songs are any indication of the album as a whole, it sounds like the New Pornographers have picked up the pace and stepped up their game since 2007’s Challengers.
