So Matador just released the details of Carl Newman's second solo album and follow-up to The Slow Wonder, one of 2004's best albums. Get Guilty will be out January 20 and features a bunch of guests including Superchunk drummer/funnyman Jon Wurster, Mates of State and Nicole Atkins.
I loved The Slow Wonder and am really looking to an all-Carl tour-de force. For those in NYC, you can hear a lot, if not all, of Get Guilty's live debut when Carl plays The Bell House on November 15. Tickets are on sale now. This will be Carl's second appearance at the Bell House, the first being an impromptu performance at the Club's opening party when Nada Surf coudn't make it. Here are a couple YouTube videos of Carl goofing around with Eugene Mirman, then performing The Slow Wonder's "Miracle Drug":
Also, did you ever see Carl interview me on New York Noise?
