The New Pornographers are back to their old, sunny ways with their latest release, Brill Bruisers. The band’s first record in four years shows off a vibrant side of the indie supergroup we haven’t seen since 2005’s Twin Cinema. Aside for the quality of the music, it makes for a perfect album to showcase on late night TV.

Last night, AC Newman, Neko Case, and The New Pornos appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to deliver a rousing performance of the album’s title track. “Wait, what happened to the Old Pornographers?” Letterman quipped.
