I know absolutely nothing about this artist, but this could be something exciting if other acts get in on it.
Leeds-based electronic trio, Heads We Dance, will be the FIRST act to stream the ENTIRE of an album pre-release on a dedicated iPhone/iPod Touch app, as debut record, Love Technology becomes available to hear through the band’s new app today, a full two weeks ahead of its digital release.
Spinner is taking an undeserved back seat this week. We are still digging on this Dark Night of the Soul record (actually listening right now). But they still have some great stuff over at AOL; including the debut Passion Pit album, Apostle of Hustle, Flipper, Nick Cave, The Field, the Beach Boys and many other goodies. Give them a listen by clicking here.

We've had our eye on this release by the odd combination of David Lynch, Sparklehorse, & Danger Mouse since we heard about it a month ago. We have to thank kevchino for the heads up. After half a spin, it's interesting to say the least. Searching for Danger Mouse's sound can take a close listen and really we have no idea what David Lynch is doing (UPDATE: he contributes vocals). Listen free at NPR. Pre order here.

We gave you a heads up and today's the day. You don't have to download it if you don't want. We know how you hate live albums. And Coldplay. But it is free. And you don't really hate them, you're just supposed to. Coldplay's LeftRightLeftRightLeft out now!
