Urgent music news – listen to Hold Steady, New Pornographers, BSS this weekend…

Just in case any music fans are reading this today; I've discovered a wonderful website - NPR ("National Public Radio (NPR) is a privately and publicly funded non profit membership media organization that serves as a national syndicator to 797 public radio stations in the US" -  Wikipedia).

It has free streams of new albums pre release (and pre Spotify).  The urgency is that they are often only there for a few days; for instance, right at the moment. you can listen to the new music from The Hold Steady, the New Pornographers and the Broken Social Scene; but only to May 4th.  All well worth checking out (and will be reviewed here).

May 2010 by the way is lining up to one of the best months for music ever - or certainly for what we might call 'intelligent indie / rock / dance".  The above, plus the National, Foals, Stornaway, Band of Horses, LCD Soundsystem....
