Whiteout Conditions, by The New Pornographers
As a whole, the new record expands Brill’s buzzy, synth-forward sound. The Pornos weave solid blocks of interwoven guitars, keyboards, vocals and rhythms. Add Newman’s impermeable, sometimes overstuffed, lyrics to the mix and this can be a dense listening experience – albeit one that remains attractive in its deployment of melody, pretty voices and pulsing percussion.

I’m enjoying this record. Time will tell how good it is. Challengers and Together are special albums to me, personally, but I’m enjoying this one so far.

Likewise. They’re a tight band.
