The New Pornographers – “High Ticket Attractions”

Is this Yorkville Senior High School or the school from Buffy?

And does that kind of potion mixing ever happen in a real-world chemistry class, or was it invented by Hollywood?

We’re guesting The New Pornographers must have found a school that was slated for demolition, for this filming; it’d require a hefty budget, otherwise, and they likely already blew a pretty penny bringing Ghost Rider to life.

“High Ticket Attractions” comes from the recently released Whiteout Conditions.

The New Pornographers – “Dancehall Domine”

The ten finalists for this year’s Prism Prize (best Canadian music video) have been announced. We’ve previously shown you Chad Vangaalen’s “Monster;” here are his co-finalists, The New Pornographers, with “Dancehall Domine.”

Says one of the video’s creators, Scott Cudmore: “Sometimes I like watching the b-roll or behind the scenes or outtakes on DVDs and blu-rays…”Dancehall Domine” is meant to feel like a whole bunch of those clips sort of strung together as if they’re taken from some fucked up Italian or French musical maybe.”

“Dancehall Domine” comes from 2014’s Brill Bruisers.

The New Pornographers – “War On The East Coast”

Carl Newman and Dan Bejar are out for a stroll. Not the makings of an exciting vid, until they saunter into a riot.

They continue unperturbed, though Newman has seemed a little agitated from the start. Perhaps he’d be having a better time if he didn’t have to lip synch to Bejar’s vocals. Let Bejar do his own singing; he can practice aloof poses some other time.

“War On The East Coast” is taken from The New Pornographers’ Brill Bruisers, out next month. Head to their Web site for a chance to do some freaky neon drawing on your screen.

The New Pornographers – “Sing Me Spanish Techno”

In which, our protagonist goes home from the bar with a drag queen, but not for reasons you’d expect. A drunk Carl Newman passes out and misses most of the action.

“Sing Me Spanish Techno” comes from The New Pornographers’ Twin Cinema (2005). Aside: how exactly would you “sing” techno to someone? Spanish or otherwise, it doesn’t typically include lyrics.
