KXT 91.7 presents The New Pornographers at Granada Theater
Kelly Dearmore Recommends
A collective of brainy, witty Canadians in their 40s featuring a semi-scandalous name isn’t typically what comes to mind when you think of pop music. But good luck finding a group who offers the kind of addictive, anthemic pop rock that the New Pornographers do. Led by A.C. Newman and featuring a talented veteran cast including celebrated solo artist Neko Case, the group has yet to offer anything less than a stellar power-pop record in its 20-year history. The band’s latest album, Whiteout Conditions, has been rightfully praised for its blend of serious subject matter and soaring poppiness. New Pornogrpahers aren’t a fresh-faced boy band, but they’re delightfully pop-tastic.
