NPR's First Listen
feature gets it done on a consistent basis. Every week, the site serves up a new batch of early streams of upcoming albums, and they're usually good ones.
This week, they're streaming Le Noise
, the new Neil Young album. It's just Young's voice and an acoustic guitar, and it's produced by Daniel Lanois
. You can also check out the new Deerhunter LP, Halcyon Digest
, which Pitchfork will surely be giving a 9.0+ rating sometime next week.
