As the frontman for the New Pornographers, AC Newman’s been stuffing records full of consummate pop arrangements for the better part of a decade. Here comes another one – “Get Guilty” is due Jan. 20 and features cameos by Jon Wurster, Nicole Atkins and Mates of State.
Matador included a preview on their fall sampler, Intended Play. It’s good. Let’s hope Brooklyn and (a New York Times plugged) marriage didn’t dent his mojo and that the balance matches his first solo disc, “Slow Wonder.”
The whole sampler, which includes tracks by Belle and Sebastian, Lou Reed and Mogwai, is available for download here.
He’s touring in February — the only confirmed date so far is NoisePop in SF the week of Feb. 24.
