And The Winner Is...
Congratulations to Wesley L, the winner of our New Pornographers/Okkervil River ticket giveaway. He knew (or at least googled) that in addition to being a member of The New Pornographers, Kathryn Calder is also a third of the Victoria, BC trio Immaculate Machine. If you've never heard of them before, here is your chance to correct that... this song is buoyant pop gem every bit as catchy as anything she's performed with Carl Newman and company. If you can listen to this and it isn't stuck in your head for the rest of the day, you simply don't like music.
Immaculate Machine - "Dear Confessor" (mp3) from Fables
Kathryn, Carl and their fellow smut peddlers will be in Nashville two weeks from tonight, April 18th, to play The Cannery Ballroom. If you're reading this and your name isn't Wesley, you can buy your tickets here.
The New Pornographers - "Myriad Harbor" (mp3) from Challengers
Okkervil River - "Black" (mp3) from Black Sheep Boy
