{     A.C. Newman "Slow Wonder"     }    

Isn't it wonderful how some of the most beautiful songs in the world seem to always be the most simple? The kind of song that you can't get out of your head, but at the same time you swear it was always there? The kind that make you smile a little wider and walk with a little more rhythm, but kind of irk you a teeny bit because you swear you could have written it first, but you didn't (because it really is a really smart and very layered ditty, that's just so well made you don't even notice)? I love that stuff, whether it's a new guilty pleasure g-string shaker from one of the Beyimberlakeney Spearson's, a fresh sugar-joint "street jam" from this week's Lil'Juvenellusher, or one of the indie-rock approved cubic-zirconium gemstones from the well-hair-cutted "The" band d'jour. So, a while back we all fell in luv with a lovely bunch of musicians named The New Pornographers, and we wore that record to tatters. Well now we're blessed yet again by a solo effort from A.C. Newman, better known as Carl from said Pornographers. Mister Newman is a downright wizard when it comes to whipping up sassy little pop tunes, making the most addictive guitar and piano tracks I've heard in a while. Comparisons have no place here, as all you need to know is that it's good. It's record-magazine, critic-loved, bunch-of-stars good. It's 15 year-old girl dancing in her bedroom good. It's music snob forgetting to take it out of the car CD player for 3 days good. It's play it while your friends are over this summer and you're cooking out and hitting on that cute brunette with the Chucks good. It's if Bruce Springsteen was in a bar drinking with his dad and his niece, they would all dig it and ask who it was good. It's making sure you take it on vacation with you two years from now good. It's really, really good. Scratch that, it's great. Really, really great. Really.
