Get Guilty

A.C. Newman

Released January 20 2009


Format: LP/CD/DA

The second solo album from A.C. Newman, leader and songwriter behind The New Pornographers, finds the pop songsmith in upbeat and guitar-heavy form. Assisted by an awesome assembly of guest musicians, including Mates Of State, Nicole Atkins, and champion all-round drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk, Ryan Adams, R.E.M., The Mountain Goats), Get Guilty is an irresistible set of layered pop songs of great melodic and lyrical depth. As always with Newman’s songs, each track unrolls to reveal second and third choruses, additional sections, singalong payoffs, and words and concerns of tremendous ironic and humorous obliquity.
