17 Seconds is kicking itself. On Sunday Morning, I went over to Song, By Toad to download his podcast, which is pretty damn good. I was blown away by the track ‘New Romantic’ by the New Pornographers and set about trying to find as much as I could legally.
For anyone who is even more of a Johnny-Come-Lately than me, they are an ‘indie-supergroup’ based in Chicago, and amongst their number are Neko Case and A.C.Newman, who I had heard of, but not really heard.
Their new album is called Challengers and will be out in August, from where ‘My Rights Versus yours’ comes from.
