The Walkmen

The Walkmen are now streaming their new album ‘Heaven’ and – just as predicted – it’s excellent. Physical and digital copies of the LP will be available as of next week, but for now you can just appreciate it all with a click of this NPR link.

Representing the second part of today’s triple streaming featurette are Iceland’s own Sigur Rós, whose unsurprisingly great new LP ‘Valtari’ is also previewing at NPR prior to its EMI-assisted release on Monday. Defined by Jónsi Birgisson as “a new beginning” for the band, you can get started on the album here.

Meanwhile, buzzy “folk-step” types Alt-J are also streaming their debut long player, ‘An Awesome Wave’, ahead of its release on 28 May. You can hear that here:
