As we laid out in our latest Insight feature, streams are the way of the future. But like any good model, they have to be open to adaptation. While no one knows quite yet how streams will change to continue to suit the needs of everyone from the labels to the listeners, we’re once again ready to present to you a fairly novel concept.
David Bazan, once the frontman of Pedro the Lion, has himself a fairly sturdy solo career; Bazan’s latest solo album, Strange Negotiations, was released yesterday. If you haven’t already picked it up, you can stream the LP via Spinner all this week. But that’s only half of it. Beginning at 6 p.m. PDT/9 p.m. EDT, we’ll be hosting a live Ustream event where Bazan will perform cuts from the new album and answer your questions. If that doesn’t beat streaming it in your PJs alone in your apartment, nothing ever will.
