The Streets are streaming 7 new songs from their latest effort Everything is Borrowed. The album isn’t out till next week, so have a listen and try before you buy. Hip-hop fans, what do you think?
We here at Austin Town Hall love The Rosebuds, and we’ve talked about a few tracks off their newest album, Life Like, in a previous post. Now that the release of said album is only a few months away, I’ve got a tip for you that should get you salivating for more from this band. The cool cats over at Merge Records are now streaming the entire album in an easy to use pop-out format. Head over there now for your own listening pleasure.
Life Like comes out via Merge Records on October 7th.
A few weeks ago we told you about a new song by Jenny Lewis that you could stream for free. Now you can stream Jenny’s entire new album “Acid Tongue” on her myspace page. Feel free to be the first to give us your thoughts.
You may be sick of all the new dance music making a resurgence, but you’ve gotta admit that French duo Justice are at least doing it right. The Frenchman continue to do it right with a new 4 part project entitled Planisphere which can be streamed on the Justice myspace page. It’s pretty rad.
Spinner has been outta site with all the full album streams they post up each week. This week they have all kinds of goodness, like new Calexico, The New Year, Chad Vangaalen and a whole slew of others. Check out the full album streams and feel free to tell us what you think about any of ’em.
A new Oh No Oh My song has been posted up on the band’s myspace page. New song “Be a Star” solidifies the band as one of the best acts coming out of Austin right now. Check it out and tell us what you think.
Dave Monks of Canadian pop-punk outfit Tokyo Police Club recently did an acoustic set for the Interface on AOL. The solo performance features four tracks from the very surprising 2008 album Elephant Shell from Mr. Monks band. Watch the video and download the live songs for free.
The Dolphin music website has a list of the top 100 music oriented blogs in the US & A. You may see some fan favorites like stereogum, gorilla vs. bear and even local favorite Sonic Itch! Unfortunately for the world, Austin Town Hall didn’t make the list… Maybe next year. Wired as #1? Really!?!
Radiohead has announced that they will be webcasting the last show of their American tour in Santa Barbara. I’m sure most of you have seen Radiohead live (and if you haven’t here’s your chance), so this is a must see. Visit the official Radiohead site for more details.
Punk rockers, Alkaline Trio, recently did a live performance for The Interface on AOL featuring backing guitar/vocals from Tegan Quin of Tegan & Sara. You can download the 4 song set via mp3 or watch the live videos as well. I think Tegan should be a permanent addition to the band.
