Song In My Head #85: “On The Table” by A.C. Newman

I’d always assumed that this 2004 track by A.C. Newman (previously known to Zumpano fans as Carl Newman) was a miniature New Pornographers side project. Turns out I was only half right. While the band’s John Collins did produce the record, the female vocals are performed (with aplomb!) by Sarah Wheeler, not Neko Case. At any rate, the minor turns and strangely foreboding piano lines brilliantly offset the loping melody and lovely harmonies.
