Countdown Is On: New LP From A.C. Newman

Matador just announced details on A.C. Newman's upcoming album, 'Shut Down the Streets,' including an Oct. 9 release date and our first listen to a new song. If "I'm Not Talking" is any indication, expect the album to be less dense and more melancholy than anything done by the New Pornographers. Given all that, you'll recognize the distinctive background vocals of bandmate Neko Case on the new tune. You're gonna want to download this one. Preorder here.

'The Slow Wonder' was one of my favorite albums of 2004, and I consider it a must-have purchase. I'm in the minority, but I didn't like his 2009 followup, 'Get Guilty,' quite as much. I have a really good feeling about this, his third solo album.
