Stream new albums from The Men, Youth Lagoon, Suuns, and Rhye
– Brooklyn punk outfit The Men‘s latest album, New Moon, is streaming in full at Pitchfork. The 12-track album was recorded in the upstate New York village of Big Indian, chosen for its “technical limitations, 32-hour orbit and predisposal to celestial intervention,” which helped to make this the band’s “most intensely personal” record yet. The album officially hits stores on March 5th via Sacred Bones and pre-orders are ongoing.
– One-man dream-pop band Youth Lagoon’s sophomore album, Wondrous Bughouse, is streaming in full at NPR. The 10-track album continues the intricate and ethereal arrangements of 2011′s The Year of Hibernation, now drawing inspiration from “psychological dysphoria and the intricacies of the human psyche.” The album officially hits stores on March 5th via Fat Possum Records and pre-orders are ongoing.
– Montreal psych-rock outfit Suuns‘ sophomore album, Images Du Futur, is streaming in full at AOL Spinner. Propelling off of what frontman Ben Shemie called a “a climate of excitement, hope and frustration,” the 10-track album heavily expands on the already-jarring and dissonant landscapes of 2010′s Zeroes QC. The album officially hits stores on March 5th via Secretly Canadian and pre-orders are ongoing.
– Los Angeles R&B duo Rhye’s debut album, Woman, is streaming in full at Pitchfork. Cloaked in an alluring air of mystery, the duo of Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal craft downtempo pop that’s overflowing with delicate sex appeal and sensuality. The album officially hits stores on March 5th via Loma Vista and pre-orders are ongoing.
