The New Pornographers | “War On The East Coast”

Posting this video mainly just so I can post this Stereogum commenter commenting maybe the best comment in the history of Stereogum comments:


The New Pornographers - “Moves”

In which John Hodgman, Ted Leo, Wyatt Cenac, Horatio Sanz, Julie Klausner, Kevin Corrigan, Jon Wurster, Todd Barry, Videogum’s Gabe Delahaye, Donald Glover, and a slew of other funny folks depict the The Rise and Rise of The New Pornographers for one of my favorite music videos of the year so far.

I may need to head up to Cleveland for this.

Christian College Cancels New Pornographers Concert Because of The Band's Name ⇢


No, but seriously, here’s an actual press release from Calvin College (courtesy of Pitchfork):

Regrettably, Calvin College has decided to rescind its invitation to the band, The New Pornographers, slated to perform on Friday, October 15, 2010, in the Fieldhouse Complex on campus. We believe that the decision to invite the band fit our rubric of engaging culture through a Christian lens. The band makes good, thoughtful music, and we invited them here based on their artistic merit. However, after weeks of discussion and consideration, the irony of the band’s name was impossible to explain to many. The band’s name, to some, is mistakenly associated with pornography. Consequently, Calvin, to some, was mistakenly associated with pornography. Neither the college nor the band endorses pornography. The Student Activities Office regrets the way this has happened. We regret the message we have sent to the band and their fans with this cancellation, and any confusion this has caused generally. We have been in contact with the band to explain this regret and the breakdown in our own processes that led us to first invite them and then withdraw that invitation. Calvin College remains committed to the difficult, yet important work at faithfully engaging popular culture.

The world needs more Bun B/New Pornographers mashups.

I saw the New Pornographers tonight, and the hey la, hey las in this song gave me goosebumps.

I liked this at first, but then I started noticing the edit cuts.  If OK Go can keep running their Rube Goldberg machine until they get it in a continuous shot, how much more difficult can this be?
