The New Pornographers – Together [Streaming]

Another big album coming out on May 4th.
The New Pornographers’ fifth studio album, “Together,” which is the return to the feel of “Twin Cinema.”
The collaborative nature of the band, with members working on various side projects in the interim, adds an interesting dynamic to their discography.

The diversity in vocal styles and songwriting traits of A.C. Newman, Neko Case, and Dan Bejar is a hallmark of The New Pornographers’ sound.
Great catchy tracks like “Your Hands (Together),” “Sweet Talk, Sweet Talk,” and the distinct traits in the vocals of each member showcases the band’s ability to create a cohesive yet varied listening experience.

An interesting perspective on “Challengers” and its mixed reception due to the mix of upbeat and mellow tracks.
The band’s longevity since 1997 and their evolving sound over the years contribute to the richness of their catalog.

Dan Bejar’s dark overtone vocals on “If You Can’t See My Mirrors” and “Daughter Of Sorrow,” as well as Neko Case’s contribution to “Crash Years,” provides a nuanced view of the album’s dynamics.

Your comparison of “Crash Years” to a Sheryl Crow song adds an interesting layer, as it highlights the band’s ability to draw inspiration from various sources and incorporate different elements into their music..

Overall I really love this album.
Upbeat and great rocking tunes.
Better than Challengers!
