The band released In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights earlier this year, which featured many orchestral and power pop elements on the record. In the lead-up to this project, the band released “The Surprise Knock,” and “Falling Down The Stairs of Your Smile,” which are both featured on the new album.
“For some, In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights might not rise to the esteem of its two predecessors, Brill Bruisers and Whiteout Conditions,” mxdwn reviewer Willie Witten explained.”A couple of key differences in personnel and album flow push the group into a fresh territory that may feel like a contender for their best attempt yet, or an uneven effort, depending on the tastes and ears of the listener. Under the name of another band, the album probably avoids this meticulous scrutiny, but so much has become expected of The New Pornographers.”
