One of the first indie rock groups I had gotten into was the New Pornographers. Through my friend he played for me one record, I believe that it was Mass Romantic. Well the super group that features AC Newman and Neko Case has announced a new album entitled Brill Bruisers. It is slated for a late August release. They will be doing a fall tour with twee pop band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. They will be playing the Union Transfer in Philadelphia in November.
