‘Shut Down The Streets’ (Album Stream)

    While the New Pornographers have been quiet since their 2010 release Together, lead Pornographer A.C. Newman is prepping his new solo album Shut Down The Streets. It’s his first solo venture in three years, but his formidable pop chops are as well-oiled as ever. Newman himself admits he got obsessed with the “psychedelic sounds of the late 70s singer songwriter” when he was writing the record.

    Shut Down The Streets comes out Oct. 9 via Matador, but you can stream the whole thing in its power-pop entirety below, courtesy of Matador and the Huffington Post.
