When we last left the New Pornographers, the Canadian indie rockers released Together, their highest charting album in the U.S. of their career, in 2010.
It took them four years — the longest in between albums in their career — but after side-projects and other releases, the band is back with new album Brill Bruisers — and it’s available to stream now via iTunes Radio.
The new album, Consequence of Sound reports, was recorded both north and south of the border — Vancouver, British Columbia, and Woodstock, N.Y.
“This is a celebration record,” bandleader A.C. Newman said of the album in an earlier press release. “After periods of difficulty, I am at a place where nothing in my life is dragging me down and the music reflects that.”
