Exciting news and a link from one of my very favorite bands just greeted me at my email box: Vancouver supergroup The New Pornographers have just released the first song off their forthcoming album, Challengers. The following will not be surprising: I love it. Sure, I could say more, but if you've got a functional hearing mechanism, "Use It" and decide for yourself. You can join their mailing list at the bandsite link above. I might mention that when I tested the link, it balked a couple of times, but persistence paid off. If yours doesn't, click on the link above and go directly to the band's site, where your luck might change.
