Kathryn Calder Shooting an Arrow at You

Kathryn Calder (The New Pornographers, Immaculate Machine) is now offering a second stab at a cut from her new album, Are You My Mother?, which will be released August 3rd (though it's available on iTunes now). Arrow is the second track we've given you, Slip Away was featured in the probably-too-long-for-any-of-you-to-read-entirely Alphabet post. Calder seems like a bright light in a gloomy tunnel, with Arrow giving listeners a spare piano, theremin and harmony sundae.

"Kathryn Calder, who replaced (Neko) Case on vocals and keys, is incredibly charming and charismatic. Tonight, a photographer friend of mine blew a couple of rolls of film on her for this very reason." - Craig Finn (singer/guitarist, The Hold Steady) for The Guardian, UK

Here's Calder on the right hand side of your screen with her current day job.

Here's a New Pornos video I somehow missed.
