Full Streams and Solid Releases

Next week brings the new Vampire Weekend LP. Full stream here.
Sounds fabulous. Go over to stream and check out "M 79" its a little different than the version playing right now. The LP has an island feel, almost Sublime-esque. Probably will be up there on most year end lists for 08' Go see for yourself, and if you don't like it, take a walk into the bathroom, look into the mirror and slap yourself.

Next, Death Cab's Chris Walla releases Field Manual. Full stream here. On first listen, doesn't sound that great, but could be okay.

Head over to AOL SPINNER to stream:

Matt Costa - Unfamiliar Faces
Just sampled this the other day. I must say I was impressed. I think it deserves a purchase. Almost Rogue Wave-ish.

Drive-By Truckers - Brighter than Creation's Dark
Bought this album the other day. Definitely is better than Blessing but not as wonderful or gritty enough as Dirty South. It has some standout tracks but I nod off in the middle of the album.

The Whigs - Mission Control
I am looking forward to buying this album as well. Sounds great, almost echoes lo-fi dreamies Pavement, Guided by Voices, and Dinosaur Jr with a jigger of INXS and Tears for Fears.

MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
A little strange, packed with electro-pop, but interesting nonetheless.

Mission Control= Must buy

A really good second album; they did a great job facing high expectations.
