Folks, it’s finally here… Backspacer. Just in time for the weekend, Pearl Jam‘s ninth studio outing is currently streaming via NME. So, snatch up that laptop of yours — drag those speakers, too — and hit the outdoors to relax. All 11 tracks here are perfect for a Saturday BBQ, where you can sit back, let loose, and listen to the frantic-yet-feel good pop that is Backspacer. What a fun title to say!
If sitting back isn’t your thing, however, then perhaps you’ll want to download the album via Rock Band. Starting next week, owners of XBOX 360, Wii, and Playstation 3 will be able to master each track with all their plastic-instrument glory on 9/20, 9/22, and 9/24, respectively.
If you ask me, “The Fixer” is a must for Rock Band. Who else can’t wait to scream, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah — fight to get it back again,” while chugging whiskey?
Oh, the weekend’s already here for this writer.
