Horsegirl's 7 track collection of impressionistic demos and outtakes - 'Rough Trade Super-Disc' - is now available to stream and to purchase as limited edition 12" (with etched B-side) exclusively via Rough Trade.
Initially released as an exclusive CD that came with the Rough Trade 'Album of The Month' variant of 'Versions of Modern Performance', the 'Super-Disc' is a collection of demos and outtakes taken from early rehearsals, recorded entirely via phone voice memos. Rough, ready and unadorned, the demos provide a captivating fly-on-the-wall vantage point to the band's music making process.
'Versions of Modern Performance' has been announced as one of Rough Trade's 'Albums of The Year' for 2022. Full editorial list here

In the weeks leading up to The New Pornographers' Brill Bruisers, 40+ indie retail stores across the US participated in a display contest to promote the album. Using the album artwork as inspiration, designers used everything from posters to glow sticks to balloons to create inventive in-store displays. Prizes were awarded to the top three designs.
First place went to LOU'S RECORDS in Encinitas, CA. Their designer used Christmas lights, cardboard, posters, and some creative magic to construct their New Pornographers light box.
Second place went to LANDLOCKED in Bloomington, IN whose impressive window display almost perfectly mimicked the font from the Brill Bruisers album cover.
And last but not least third place went to MUSIC SAVES in Cleveland, OH who utilized myriad craft supplies including balloons, pipe cleaners, crepe paper in their display.
Congrats to the winners and a big THANK YOU to all stores who participated.
