Relentlessly Exuberant! Clever, Addictive Power Pop!
One of Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2017!

Whiteout Conditions marks the first record under the supergroup’s newly founded imprint, Collected Works Records, in partnership with Concord Music Group. The 7th album from rock & roll indie-dom’s favorite collective is a bountiful 11-song slab of guts and glory, balancing the pleasures of unapologetically grand hooks and pop songcraft with a nervous ferocity that belies the national blizzard into which it’s being delivered.

“Hold on tight: it’s another relentlessly exuberant, propulsive jam from The New Pornographers. The latest in the band’s deep catalog of clever and addictive power pop is 'High Ticket Attractions'.” - NPR

“At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.” - A.C. Newman (frontman of The New Pornographers)

"AC Newman’s knack for melodies is on full display: Every song on Whiteout Conditions invites head-bobbing or singing along, and the album’s success stems at least as much from his penchant for experimenting with arrangement and structure. If 2014's Brill Bruises was the return to more straightforward, listener-friendly power pop after the self-conscious eccentricity of the last three albums, Whiteout Conditions keeps that celebration going in style." - Craig Dorfman, Paste Magazine

"The best power-pop band of the last 20 years has always specialized in making knotty ideas and rich abstractions churn with the hummable buzz of bubblegum gold. New Pornographers' latest is steeped in the hypnotic headrush repetition of the Feelies and Seventies Krautrock, heavy on drum throb, Sensurround synth swirls and micro-managed glowing-fractal harmony elation – like Steve Reich co-producing an ELO record in 1979, or a vision of early New Wave if MTV had beamed forth from some collectivist art cooperative in the Canadian wilds. It would all be neon soup without the wonderful tune-mad songs, which mull states of depression and unease, post-Trump and otherwise, to come up with music that manages to confront real-life anxieties and transport you above the fallen world of theater itself." - Rolling Stone, 50 Best Albums of 2017
