In the wake of their headlining performance at the 2017 NPR Showcase at SXSW, The New Pornographers will also tour the U.S. and Europe this spring and summer including a run of newly added dates with Spoon. Full tour dates listed below.

Additionally, Under The Radar is premiering a behind the scenes featurette of the filming of the video for the song “High Ticket Attractions.” Of the video, director Dan Huiting (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso) notes, “I have always wanted to wreck things in music videos, I just never thought I would get a chance to destroy an entire high school!”

Of writing the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”

Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released six studio albums including their most recent, Brill Bruisers, hailed as an “exuberant, synthpop-infused set” by Rolling Stone, “infectious” by Harper’s Bazaar and “the grand and purposeful hookfest that you would hope these guys would come back with” by Stereogum. Pitchfork went on to note that “with the futurist sound of Brill Bruisers, the whole band embraces a more electric version of itself – bulked-up in chrome-plated armor, firing on all cylinders, and ready to steamroll anything in its path.” The band celebrated the release with a special NPR Music “First Listen Live” concert at the legendary Brill Building, and performed songs from the album on both Conan and the Late Show with David Letterman.

Available to stream today courtesy of CBC Music, Darling Of The Afterglow is Lydia Ainsworth’s second record and follow up to the JUNO Award nominated and critically acclaimed Right From Real (2014). The album features a team of local Toronto musicians, woven into Ainsworth’s programming, samples and string arrangements. “I usually have to be out of my element to get that spark of inspiration,” she says of songwriting. The songs on Darling Of The Afterglow began away from home, before being brought to fruition in her hometown.

Due out March 31 via Arbutus Records, Ainsworth will celebrate the release of the record with her first-ever headlining tour throughout North America. Full tour dates can be found below.

Darling Of The Afterglow mixes yearning pop with other-worldly synthetic sounds, plush classical settings and weird-gothic R&B influences. Lydia Ainsworth’s new album is a richly imagined, richly felt work of future-pop classicism – an album of intimate emotions projected in heightened widescreen. The stunning, 11-track Darling Of The Afterglow showcases a great leap forward from Right From Real’s already prodigious experi-pop riches.

"Unmistakable and appealing confidence." Pitchfork

"A beacon of melancholia's painful beauty. Inescapable." Stereogum

"Elegant, elegiac, and sensual." Noisey

“Her gorgeous voice projects confidently as she explores deep yet relatable autobiographical themes, while her instrumentals deconstruct pop and R&B like a more polished Evy Jane or a less eccentric Grimes.” Georgia Straight

"Soft-hued indie pop with dangerously sharp corners." FADER

Available to stream today courtesy of CBC Music, Crawl Space documents Tei Shi's transformation from the cautious and curious new kid on the block to a confident, self-possessed and buzzworthy artist. 

STREAM CRAWL SPACE HERE VIA CBC MUSIC

Following a week of incredible performances and praise from critics and fans alike at SXSW and a North American tour with, Tei Shi has also announced another round of tour dates this Spring, headlining shows in NYC, Boston and DC as well as a performance at Field Trip in Toronto on June 3.

Set for release on March 31 via Arts & Crafts, Crawl Space was written and recorded over a year and a half, the album traces a much wider arc, from Tei Shi's earliest musical explorations to this, her first long player. Growth is never easy, though, and if the title makes the process sound difficult, even claustrophobic, that's because it was. In fact, there is a palpable physicality surrounding this record, and it reveals itself everywhere: from the album's song titles - “Keep Running,” “Lift Me” – to its rhythms, to its astonishing cover art. Constant motion is a fact of life. A real, physical crawl space fits only one person and demands that person move forward, out and through it. Tei Shi's debut evokes that feeling and the experience of centering oneself, changing focus.

Born in Buenos Aires, Valerie Teicher (aka Tei Shi) spent her childhood in Argentina and Colombia before moving to Vancouver and Montreal, cultivating a strong artistic sensibility from a young age. During her studies at Massachusetts' Berklee College of Music she began to realize her full potential as a performer, and by the time she moved to New York City after graduation, the Tei Shi project was born.
