How ironic is it that the female voice of a band called the New Pornographers won Playboy's "Sexiest Babe of Indie Rock" poll in 2003? Answer: kinda-sorta. (She declined to pose, for what it's worth.) But thankfully, we've all more or less swept that strange chapter of hipster history under the rug and are now free to (ahem...) get off on the tunes. This time around there are two additional lady leads, Kathryn Calder and Nora O'Connor (clearly contenders for the inevitable "Sexiest Potential Three-Way in Indie Rock" piece), and the Vancouver collective's saccharine singalongs are far less joyous. Eccentric leader A.C. Newman's classicist tastes contribute to a somewhat more foreboding atmosphere-dude's a renaissance man of the highest order. We'll probably see his Playgirl spread any month now. Yep, annnnnyyyyy month...
