A.C. Newman Gets Guilty, Is the (Second) Coolest Redhead Ever


As if it were even possible, Carl Newman (of The New Pornographers fame for those of you living under a rock) has found a way to top his first solo effort, 2004’s The Slow Wonder. With the same whimsical lyrics and reinventive melodies, the creative indie-king from our neighbor’s to the north, has created what I am already seriously considering the album of next year (which is a bit premature I kn0w). All I can really do is implore….nay, BEG, that you do yourself a favor and listen to “Like a Hitman, Like a Dancer” and “Prophets”. Then, maybe, you will understand the genius that is A.C. Newman, and you will be first in line to grab a copy of Get Guilty, which drops on 1/20/09 on Matador. Until then, enjoy these two tracks and don’t say I didn’t get you all something for Christmas.

MP3: A.C. Newman – “Like a Hitman, Like a Dancer”
MP3: A.C. Newman – “Prophets”

By the way, he’s only the second coolest after Claire’s sister, Tessa, who just so happens to be the coolest 14 year old on the planet.
