Surprise! Secret Band Just Released A Full-Length Album

First, we get a new Emarosa song, now we get a full Secret Band album? Today is turning out great so far!

Over the last few weeks Secret Band have revealed a couple of singles. Fans knew they were working on an album but there wasn’t an indication it was ready to be released any time soon. Alas, they are full of surprises and have now dropped the self-titled full-length on Bandcamp and iTunes. If you want to grab yourself a CD those are available for purchase through their Bandcamp page at this time.

Naomi Punk Television Man

Stream Naomi Punk’s Noisy New Album ‘Television Man’

On August 5, Naomi Punk will release their sophomore full-length, Television Man, and the Olympia trio are streaming the record in its entirety over at Pitchfork Advance in anticipation of that date. If you catch them on one of the opening tour dates this weekend, however, you’ll get to hear the tracks live where they take on an even more raw, gritty sound.

Television Man sees the punk rockers bringing a DIY style back to the noisy rock and distant lyrics to cathartic levels. With standout tracks like the bitter “Eleven Inches” and instrumental masterpiece “Eon of Pain,” there’s no …

Stream Columns’ Thrashy, Grindy ‘Please Explode’

I tend to truly enjoy anything Adam Cody is involved with, which includes the disappointingly under-active Glass Casket and the always active Wretched. The vocalist has been working on another project for some time now alongside members of Hemdale and Vehemence as well, and today we can officially stream Columns’ new record, Please Explode, in all its metal glory. Metal Sucks has the exclusive and the official release date is August 5 via Relapse.

Featuring 16 tracks–most of which average out at a succinct minute and a half–Please Explode is a chaotic good time that will likely encourage …

Spoon They Want My soul

ALBUM STREAM: Spoon – ‘They Want My Soul’

Spoon’s new album, They Want My Soul, finally comes out on August 5 via Loma Vista. It’s been four years since 2010′s Transference and almost 10 months since they announced a new album was on the way. Now, at last, the album can be streamed in full at iTunes Radio.

The 10-track full-length is the first time Spoon has used an outside producer (Joe Chiccarelli [My Morning Jacket, Beck, The Strokes] and Dave Fridmann [The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev]), the first time frontman Britt Daniel incorporated a new-found obsession with classic rock staples AC/DC and The Rolling …

Adult Jazz

Stream Adult Jazz’s Excellent Debut LP ‘Gist Is’

Leeds four-piece Adult Jazz shared a video titled “Community Rhythms” two weeks ago that got our attention from its first few seconds. After watching a pile of humans tumble out of a white van, gather round in a school gym, and bust out a drum circle while frontman Harry Burgess ropes around them singing, we couldn’t help but obsess over what we just saw. Was this group therapy? A brilliant combo of folk, roots, and pop? A cult disguised as a band? After a lot of deliberation and even more online stalking, we found the answer: it was …

ALBUM STREAM: Bear In Heaven – ‘Time Is Over One Day Old’

Brooklyn synth rock band Bear In Heaven are putting out their newest full-length, Time Is Over One Day Old, on August 5 via Dead Oceans/Hometapes. We’ve already heard opening track “Almost” and their first single “Time Between.” Now they’re streaming the album two weeks early at NPR’s First Listen.

The new record highlights older ’80s synth as the band turns inward to look at their own delicate abilities and the fragile nature of emotions. As their press release notes, it’s an opportunity to hear the band at peace as they’ve “learned to cut back on that which …

Alive In Standby

ALBUM STREAM: Alive In Standby – ‘Never Ending’

Even though Alive In Standby have been together for over four years, they are just now getting around to releasing their debut full-length album. With that being the case, they still earned themselves a dedicated fanbase with the stellar singles (and EP) they’ve dropped over the years.

After four years of hard work and dedication, the band will be releasing Never Ending this coming Tuesday, July 29. As a treat for fans, they have put the album up on YouTube to be streamed a little early. Give it a listen below the jump.

I’ve listened to the entire album already, …

Shabazz-Palaces-Lese-Majesty

Stream Shabazz Palaces’ Lush New Album ‘Lese Majesty’

Shabazz Palaces, still mysterious even after discovering Seattle’s Ishmael Butler was behind the project, returns. The fascinating Sub Pop art rap releases Lese Majesty in one week, but you can hear it for a week via NPR’s First Listen series.

The album has plenty of the avante garde weirdness of past Shabazz tunes, but it’s also a surprisingly lush, relaxed release. As Andrew Matson points out, “the album’s title comes from the French phrase for sacrilege against royalty.” Perhaps its posh nature shouldn’t be a surprise, then, as the names gracing the album and its tracks relate to royalty.. …

within the ruins

ALBUM STREAM: Within The Ruins – ‘Phenomena’

It’s been just over a year since Within The Ruins‘ last album, Elite, but the band was more anxious than ever to release another record that sounds like Within The Ruins.

Don’t get me wrong, out of all the bands doing over-produced, shredtastic, breakdown-HEAVY metalcore, they’re pretty much the only one that I still truly enjoy. These dudes slay for sure, even if all their records sound the same. The first time I heard Creature, my mind was blown. Five years later with Phenomena…not so much. But it’s still a record that urges you to dust …

Stream Jenny Lewis’ ‘The Voyager’ In Full

On July 29, former Rilo Kiley vocalist Jenny Lewis will be releasing her third solo LP, The Voyager, an album that has quickly become one of my favorites of 2014.

Featuring quirky, cutesy, and clever lyrics and story-like themes (her star-studded video for “Just One Of The Guys” is evidence of her lovable nature), The Voyager portrays a Jenny Lewis that’s matured as a musician and songwriter but still loves to have a good time.

You can stream all 10 of Lewis’ excellent folk-pop tracks over at NPR and make sure to pre-order the album if you enjoy your …
