Recommended Wednesday Show: Times New Viking at Mercury Lounge

Frankly, I can’t believe Times New Viking’s new album, Born Again Revisited, hasn’t gotten more attention.  It got an 8.1 on Pitchfork, but didn’t get Best New Music.  It’s just as hard to listen to as their older work, with just as many hidden pop melodies.  Listen to the mp3 below.  It might sound difficult to some listeners, but wait until the chorus.  “Move to California/ I hear you’ll have a better time.”  A philosophy I’ve grown to doubt, but a fabulous line in the song.  Plus, their shows are very cool as they play whole-heartedly on ramshackle gear.  A wonderful band that you should definitely see if you haven’t already, and if you have, you should hear them play material off of their new album.
