Two bands I really like, The National and The New Pornographers, recently released new albums. They've pretty much been on continuous repeat in my car for the last week or so whenever I can pry them out of N's hands. N reviewed the albums here and here if you want to read more about them and listen to a sample.
I know that the band name The New Pornographers might offend some people off but their music is great and in my opinion not vulgar at all. It's said that the name came about from the Jimmy Swaggart quote that "rock music is the new pornography" but I'm not sure if that's true.
I'm just excited to see them play at this year's Twilight Concert Series in Salt Lake this summer.
