The New Pornographers – Emmy Nominated, And On The Road


We’re in the midst of a heavy period of activity for The New Pornographers ; in addition to a new batch of US dates (below), the band’s “Sweet Talk” video for Oxfam’s Gulf oil spill relief efforts (directed by Shannon Hart Reed  has just been nominated for an Emmy in the “Societal Concerns” category.  Though Record Store Day is a slightly less important cause than those supervised by Oxfam, it’s obviously one very close to our hearts, and saturday’s chapter in this annual celebration of independent music retailing will feature a limited edition 7″ of ‘Together”s “Moves” b/w the unreleased B-side “Drug Deal Of The Heart”, plus a download code for said tracks and the Tom Scharpling-directed video for the a-side.
