1. The New Pornographers: "Your Hands (Together)"

It's been three years since The New Pornographers (with Carl Newman, pictured left) released "Challengers." But the Canadian indie rock heroes haven't missed a beat on this preview from 2010's highly-anticipated album "Together." Though it won't land until May 4 on Matador Records, this intense-but melodic-tease is certainly a fulfilling amuse bouche.
