If you haven't already heard, The Arcade Fire's long-awaited The Suburbs dropped yesterday, and you can scoot on over to Amazon and buy the whole album in mp3 format for $3.99.
Lastly, I'm way way stoked (yes, stoked -- blame it on listening to Best Coast and spending too much time in LA) for the new Walkmen album, Lisbon, coming out on September 14. Time to program a note-to-self. For now, have a listen to first single "Stranded"
The Walkmen - "Stranded" [mp3]
Best Coast - "Our Deal" [mp3]
