The Tallest Man On Earth Streams ‘Dark Bird Is Home’

The Tallest Man On Earth’s upcoming LP Dark Bird Is Home is set to release May 12, via Dead Oceans, but NPR is streaming the album in full, two weeks before the release.

The artist’s fourth album overall, Dark Bird Is Home marks the first time the Swedish musician has paired with others to illuminate the songs he has written.

Dark Bird Is Home features many moody tracks that are certainly new avenues for Matsson, but the album still retains the essence of the songwriter’s sound in previous releases.

The album is currently available for pre-order here.

mewithoutYou Release “Red Cow” From Upcoming LP

It feels like it’s been forever since mewithoutYou announced their new LP, Pale Horses, due out this June via Run For Cover, but it is only now that we are getting a new song from the album. The band has released the energetic “Red Cow,” the fifth track from their upcoming release.

“Red Cow” is a blast of distortion that reminds me of the band’s harder sound found on [A→B] Life and Catch For Us The Foxes. The track features the band’s signature sound of combining beauty with chaotic emotion, though “Red Cow” surely features a revitalized sense of …

10 Years Later, TREOS Still Matters: Celebrating ‘Between The Heart And The Synapse’

I was fourteen years old when Between The Heart And The Synapse first came out. I was aware of the band’s presence a little before it released, but I was not yet aware of what the band would later do for me.

I was young, excited to be out at shows, and completely enthralled by the Massachusetts DIY scene at the time. Upon leaving a show in Greater Boston, I remember being given a flyer for a band called The Receiving End Of Sirens. The name seemed long enough to me to be cool, as if it were purposefully …

Sufjan Stevens Streams Beautiful New Album, ‘Carrie & Lowell’

Sufjan Stevens is streaming his new LP, Carrie & Lowell, over at NPR’s First Listen.
