The Slow Wonder has a beautifully open and uplifting feel, even as its lyrics often subvert the sunny vibe. Musically, too, the melodies and arrangements take unexpected detours which give the songs more depth with each listen. In contrast to the nonstop anthemic steamroll of The New Pornographers, The Slow Wonder is full of space and surprise. There’s a sentimental streak in the soaring epic “Secretarial” and gorgeous ballad “Cloud Prayer” (complete with trumpet solo). Elsewhere, “Miracle Drug” is a wickedly frisky guitar number, and “The Battle For Straight Time” could be the next New Pornos hit, while “Better Than Most” dials the clock back to Graham Parker’s late-70s quirks.
