TBT: “Miracle Drug” by A.C. Newman

Every Thursday we pick a great song from the past. Huge bands, musical oddities, one-hit wonders, and everything in-between.

“Miracle Drug” by A.C. Newman
Slow Wonder (2004)

Hard to believe that it’s been ten years since New Pornographers frontman A.C. Newman released his debut solo record – Slow Wonder. The album was met with very good reviews including Pitchfork’s glowing 8.8/10 rating, saying the album “fits together for a taut 34 minutes without lags or rough spots”.

“Miracle Drug” is a microcosm of the album in that sense – super tight with absolutely no rough spots whatsoever.
