It’s a rarity and an honor when a band is able to not only stick around for 20 years but still make music that people love and connect to. Canadian indie rock band The New Pornographers are in this honorable position, having channeled the power of collaboration to make it the long haul.

Last year, the AC Newman-fronted band dropped by KEXP mere weeks before the world shut down to play songs off their latest album, In the Morse Code of Brake Lights. For Live on KEXP, Troy Nelson connects the strength of magnets and the technical difficulty of Morse code with the enduring legacy and prowess of The New Pornographers. Magnets are magic. The more someone tries to explain them scientifically the more magical they seem.
