“Hold on tight: it’s another relentlessly exuberant, propulsive jam from
The New Pornographers. The latest in the band’s deep catalog of clever and addictive power pop is ‘High Ticket Attractions.’”
“Expect flawless harmonies, precisely arranged power pop, and more Neko Case vocal wizardry than any mere human deserves to hear in one lifetime.”
“A parade of hook-laden songs.”
“Whiteout Conditions [is] a characteristically punchy and catchy LP with more than a few jams set to become worthy contenders in the New Pornos’ canon.”
“These days we all could use a little cheer, and fortunately, The New Pornographers will supply some with the April 7th release of Whiteout Conditions.”
“Whiteout Conditions offers another hit of the high gloss power-pop they’ve perfected over the years, complete with catchy melodies and gorgeous harmonies.”
