Iron & Wine’s new album (that comes out next week) is streaming at Conan O’Brien’s website:
Iron & Wine are also giving away the strongest track, “Tree By the River” on their website:
In other brand new music news, The Decemberists performed their new album, The King Is Dead, in its entirety in Portland for NPR. Video and audio versions can be found here:
PS. I’ve heard four tracks now from the upcoming R.E.M. album, Collapse Into Now. Of the four, I like three (“Oh My Heart,” “It Happened Today” and “Discoverer”) and fine one rather horrible (“Mine Smell Like Honey”). Just saying.
PPS. I almost forgot to mention two albums that I'm looking forward to that are coming out soon:
Noah and the Whale - Last Night on Earth
Destroyer - Kaputt (If you thought last year was 80s retro, well, think again.)
