The New Pornographers - High Art, Local News

The New Pornographers were in Toronto this past weekend opening for Belle & Sebastian, and when you think about it, they are a perfect fit considering the expanded pop direction that B&S have taken as of late. I wish I could have been in attendance, but I really dislike The Docks as a venue. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.) Keeping with this theme, today's post is a b-side from the New Pornos; it was a bonus track on the Japanese release of Twin Cinema and will also appear on an upcoming CD compilation from the final issue of indie music mag Comes With A Smile. (It was also available on a limited edition one-sided 7" that some lucky people received for pre-ordering Twin Cinema, and if I'm not mistaken that is probably where this particular MP3 was captured from.) If the song has a fault (and I'm not saying it does), it would be that it sounds like just about every other New Pornographers song I've ever heard. But in my mind that's a good thing.
