Dan Bejar Brings Joy To Us All

I really need to share this with you. By now you might have heard this around the internets. But I don't care, it is that good. For weeks I have been listening with unbridled joy to "Challengers", the new album from The New Pornographers. Now "Myriad Harbour" is available for public consumption. Don't worry "Challengers" is wonderful as expected but for me I always wait to hear Mr Bejar's contributions most of all. The man can do wrong in my opinion and he hasn't failed here. His ode to New York is just a rollicking romp that will stick in your cranium for days.

Stereogum has some thoughts here and very recent concert photos.
You can pre-order "Challengers" here.
MP3: Myriad Harbour
I took a plane
I took a train
(Ah, who cares, you always end up in the city)
I said to Carl
look up for once
(See just how the sun sets in the sky)
I said to Jon
Do you think the girls here
(Ever wonder how they got so pretty?)
Oh well I do
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour

All the boys
with their home-made microphones
(Have very interesting sounds)
All the girls falling to ruin
dropping out of school, breakin' daddy's heart
(Just to hang around)
I walked into the local record store
and asked for an American music anthology
It sounds fun
They taught my sketches
Stuck on the walls at PS 1
I took a plane
I took a train
(Ah, who cares, you always end up in the city)

Stranded at Bleecker and Broadway
Looking for something to do
Someone somewhere asked me is there anything
in particular I can help you with?
(All I ever want to help with was you)
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour

    I agree. As much as I love "My Rights Versus Yours", I think that "Myriad Harbour" might be winning me over. Although, I guess I could just have two new favourite songs...
