Sons & Daughters, "Gilt Complex"

S&D are responsible for the fantastic "Johnny Cash" and "Dance Me In;" while I was kind of anxious after reading that Brett Butler of Suede would be producing the new album, turns out I needn't have worried.

You can stream the full album here. I don't know what the deal is with that page, or what the hell "Luisterpaal" means, but it's definitely worth bookmarking- they update constantly with full streams of new albums. Of the other stuff they've got, I'm liking Raz Ohara, and I'm more impressed than I thought I'd be with Vampire Weekend, as it turns out the much-hyped "Mansard Roof" is one of the worst tracks on the album. Still, the press coverage of their album has been pretty wretched so far, mostly centering on AFRICA HOW NOVEL (PS GRACELAND). Fuck Paul Simon, Lizzy Mercier Descloux co-opted African music first and did it better. For that matter, so did Duck Rock.

Luisterpaal is Dutch, and it means 'listening Pole'. It's a great streaming service, with the latest albums. Offered by Dutch National Broadcaster VPRO:
