The Truth In One Free Afternoon

The New Pornographers played three songs for KEXP on Friday. The only bad thing about the performance is that it multiplied my anticipation to see their live show, and I have to wait until the 26th of October. Listen to this acoustic version of My Rights Versus Yours. The vocal harmonies pop out just a little bit more than they do on the album version, and it might just confirm your suspicion that it's really a folk song in disguise.

A new empire in rags
The truth in one free afternoon

Under your wheels, the fits and starts
The time to dabble in the arts
To tease the packs of dogs in charge
But kid it's all wasted on me
