Streaming Indies

 

Monday is the day NPR Music puts new free streaming music up on the web, and two highly anticipated indie releases are there to be heard as of today: The Hold Steady's Heaven Is Whenever, the first by the rugged and highly literate Brooklyn band since losing keyboard player Franz Nicolay, and Broken Social Scene's Forgiveness Rock Record, from the loose-knit Canadian outfit led by Kevin Drew. Both albums are due in stores and online retailers on May 4. Hear the Hold Steady (that's them) here, and Broken Social Scene here. Meantime, LCD Soundsystem's This Is Happening has been streaming at the band's website since last week. Hear it here. That album from the James Murphy-led New York dance-rock collective doesn't come out until May 18. The Murphy and Spike Jonze-directed video for "Drunk Girls' is below.
