What I’m Listening To This Week


“Challengers” – The New Pornograhers

In an age of bland, unispired, unorginal “music” this band continues to deliver the goods. While not as stunning as the previous “Twin Cinemas”, this is a solid effort. “Here’s the munity I promised you, and here’s the party it turned into” on the track “Mutiny, I Promise” is the best line I’ve heard in a song in a long time.


“The Con” – Tegan and Sara

This is a huge disapointment. I generally don’t like to write bad reviews — just ignore works I don’t care for. But I waited a long time for a follow-up to the 2004 surprise “So Jealous.” The “Con” is aptly named; I was conned into thinking this was worth buying. Over produced and myopic in subject matter, one listen was painful, a second was torture.
