A.C. Newman and Luke Temple

Low Times » Podcast show

Summary: A.C. Newman is best known as the main songwriting force behind The New Pornographers in addition to his work as a solo artist. Tom Scharpling catches up with Newman as they discuss Carl's early bands, his relationship with fellow New Pornographer Dan Bejar, the "perverted science" of writing pop hooks and his forthcoming solo record Shut Down the Streets. Luke Temple is the leader of Here We Go Magic, the Brooklyn lo-fi outfit that recently made headlines for picking up a hitchhiking John Waters. Temple sits down with Daniel Ralston and talks about making the leap from being a solo artist to leading a band, giving up control in order to achieve success and what it means for a current artist when they don't get Pitchfork's golden seal of approval.
