I don’t know about your musical purchasing habits, but the ability to stream an entire album prior to it’s release makes me much more likely to buy that album. I’m glad to see more and more artists taking advantage of Soundcloud, Bandcamp and NPR for such purposes. Stream two of my most anticipated albums of the fall below from Band of Horses and Grizzly Bear. Both are great listens, but Shields has top album of the year contender potential (imo).Pre-order Band of Horses Mirage Rock on Amazon.
Pre-order Grizzly Bear Shields on Amazon.
