Sure, we've been listening to it on NPR for a week. But now I can stream the new RYAN ADAMS record without leaving thephoenix.com -- a win for me, at least; feel free to play along if you want.
My guess is that everyone who hasn't been thoroughly alienated by Adams' long, oversharing string of hit-and-miss albums, EPs, web-only metal albums, and youtube-cover bullshit is by now following him directly on Facebook.
The intra-office opinion gap on SLEIGH BELLS is already nearing fistfight levels of acrimony -- half of us are in love with the singer, and the other half wants to punch that half in the face with this nonsense, already. How many more videos are we going to post under the pretext of "documentation," while really just giving us an excuse to get up close and personal with that cute singer? Fuck you: as many as we damn well please.
NPR's got the new MGMT album Congratulations streaming for the next three weeks: set your audio-ripping plugins on stun. We here at the Phoenix have to decide in the next few hours whether it's good enough that you'll want to vote for it in a month. So stream some more tracks after the jump -- and then speak up, or else this'll be banished to the Best Music Poll 2011 bracket.
Wow, it's feeling so 1993 right about now. We lost track of Kim Deal after the last Pixies tour wrapped, and thus were wholly unprepared for the leak, over the weekend, of a brand-spanking-new Breeders album to the internets. Sure, this is the Kelley Deal version and not the Pod-era Tanya Donelly version, but nope, we're not complaining.
Thanks for deciding to fuck the music industry in all three holes by giving away your new album, In Rainbows, for free on the internet. Yes, we've heard the old saw that there’s nothing more expensive than free. And we appreciate your generosity in allowing us to pay whatever we feel like giving you when we download your DRM-free mp3s.
