The New Pornographers: Twin Cinema

 
I was just listening to the new song by Rogue Wave, "10:1", and it was followed immediately in my mp3 player by the title track off The New Pornographers latest album, Twin Cinema. Now I've got to say HOLY CRAP! The Rogue Wave track sounded fine, driven by a bevy of keyboard sounds, it has a catchy melody wrapped in a slightly sticky sound. But this 'good' song sounds as if it were recorded in a two-bedroom apartment with blankets over the band's heads when followed by Carl Newman and his band kicking through the front door of "Twin Cinema".

Even with one helluva heavy pair of hands slamming the piano keys, and sporting the kicking boots, the sheer production of this song pushes Rogue Wave to the sidelines. "Twin Cinema" must have been an obvious choice for title track, or at the least, the one to hang the fate of the album upon.
