I've been listening this week to the newest New Pornographers release, Challengers. It's a fine, fine album - perhaps, as Jim&Greg state, not quite as consistently strong as Twin Cinema, but excellent and on my buy-it list.

What's particularly nice about this is the attentive and somewhat deferential treatment Rollins receives from Cohen. The pairing, particularly for the minimalist repetition in this song, is top notch.
