Pornography old and new

Fans of the mighty New Pornographers will be pleased to hear that Carl Newman (their main songwriter) has a solo album coming in June (under the name A.C. Newman). You can download a sample MP3 from that CD here. It's a keeper.

Those same fans will also perhaps want to spend some of their downloading energy on this clutch of rare tracks by Zumpano, Carl Newman's old band. Zumpano doesn't really reach the same heights as the New Pornographers, but they're still totally worth a listen.

(Thanks to Largehearted Boy -- a music dork's best friend -- for the Zumpano link.)
