Having played Rock the Garden in 2008, the New Pornographers are no strangers to the view of the Minneapolis skyline. On Friday, Aug. 8, the Vancouver-rooted but now variously based indie rockers gathered in the Twin Cities for a show at the Skyline Music Festival at Target Field.
En route to the gig, the New Pornographers stopped by The Current's studio to play some songs and to chat with Mary Lucia.
Listen to the band's conversation with Mary to hear about how the band members consider their artistic longevity, about how the new record came together, and about the band's decision to finally start appearing in their own music videos.
You'll also hear the New Pornographers' Kathryn Calder describe A Matter of Time, a forthcoming documentary about ALS (also called Lou Gehrig's Disease) in which she was invited to participate.
The New Pornographers perform tonight (Wednesday, Nov. 12) at First Avenue with opening act the Pains of Being Pure at Heart.
"War on the East Coast"
The first two songs are from the forthcoming album, Brill Bruisers, releasing on Aug. 25, 2014. "Moves" comes from the 2010 album Together. Both albums are distributed in the U.S. by Matador Records.

- Album Review: The New Pornographers, 'Brill Bruisers' The New Pornographers' newest record, 'Brill Bruisers', is not only their newest entry into a fantastic musical catalog, but also the latest chapter in a continuing narrative of the personal dynamic of this very special band and its members.
- The New Pornographers perform in The Current studio Vancouver indie-rock super group The New Pornographers formed in 1996, but didn't release their debut album, "Mass Romantic," until the fall of 2000. Not surprising, given everyone in the band was already involved with successful projects.
