I remember when I first discovered The New Pornographers: My roommate blasted Twin Cinema in the late morning after classes, their adventurous pop songs flirting with the saccharine and well-balanced with touches of bitterness, surreality, and unflinching honesty. The interplay of Neko Case’s, A.C. Newman’s, and Dan Bejar’s voices added textures that allowed the songs to float from gauzy to meaty in three minutes.

Canadian rockers The New Pornographers released In the Morse Code of Brake Lights, the band’s eighth studio album, in September via Collected Works Records. The group’s accompany tour takes them to the 9:30 Club, for a sold-out show, and the Lincoln Theatre on Wednesday, Nov. 6!
