Episode 64: The New Pornographers

“Brill Bruisers”


The New Pornographers are kind of a supergroup, with seven members in the band, including Neko Case and Dan Bejar, who are both acclaimed songwriters with their own successful solo careers. But the band is led by Carl Newman, and in this episode, he breaks down the title song from their sixth album Brill Bruisers. Plus you’ll hear some thoughts from bassist and co-producer John Collins. My interview with Carl Newman was recorded live at The Greene Space at WNYC.

You can buy “Brill Bruisers” on iTunes.
