THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS - WHITEOUT CONDITIONS
LABEL : DINE ALONE RECORDS // RELEASE DATE : APRIL 7, 2017
Whiteout Conditions, the new full-length record from critically acclaimed supergroup The New Pornographers, is due April 7 via Dine Alone Records in Canada.
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.
