The 4th album from The New Pornographers, 'Challengers' is the sound of songwriters Carl Newman and Dan Béjar stretching out. In a Pitchfork interview around release, Newman rejected the "power-pop" label and suggested "power-folk" instead, and several songs on the album live up to it, particularly the luscious Neko Case fronted ballads "Go Places" and "Challengers."
