Today's song finds indie rock's premier power-pop combo in typically hooky, melodic form. Fronted by A.C. Newman, the New Pornographers have been turning out albums loaded with meticulous harmonies and catchy choruses since the late '90s. "My Rights Versus Yours" is from the band's "Challengers" album, due in August and sure to be a massive hit ... in the alternate universe where Beatles-y guitars, clever songcraft and singers who sound neither cool nor macho never went out of style.
