Phenomenal new album. To be released on May 13th. The best description actually comes from their Sounds Like on Myspace: "Tibetan Crime Jazz." The name of the first song sums it up nicely, as well: "Stoned at the Taj Again."
Try it - mediafire, .mp3, 192kbps
If you don't know them, here are links (not mine! is that allowed?) to their two previous albums. Both also phenomenal. Yes, that really is the only word to use.
Burning Off Impurities (2007) - megaupload, 192kbps
Black Tar Prophecies Vol. 1, 2, 3 (2006) - megaupload

I'm going to do what every other blogger paying attention to this album is doing and tell you how awesome Bright Blue Dream is and that it's an early contender for a Best of 2008 album.
Mainly the project of Bill Baird from the former Sound Team.
Sadly, the label doesn't want you hearing the album without buying it. I believe it's unwise of them to have this attitude, but I respect their request.

I got my copy of "Beaks to the Moon" in the mail today! I can't bring myself to give you the whole thing, especially because as far as I can tell I would be breaking it to the whole internet, but here are a couple great tracks. I've only given the album one listen so far, but it's great, of course. I don't know if I prefer just Keith or Keith and the band.

This is a re-working of the song on "Phone Calls," but holy hell - improvement!

One of the biggest draws for me to The Shivers is Keith's voice. Croon, whatever. He doesn't sing in this song yet it's one of my favorites on the album.
I nearly peed myself when I saw the packaging. That's my name inside a bird with a heart hovering over its head! AWWW!
The beautiful first album can be found here.
Buy it! Really, do it!
