Get The Seldom Seen Kid

Elbow

Do yourself a favor and stream the new Elbow record, The Seldom Seen Kid, on IMEEM.com. The fine UK gents were responsible for making one of the finest records ever made (Cast Of Thousands), so anything they now do needs to be taken SERIOUSLY. Serious. After a few listens of The Seldom Seen Kid, I’ve noticed that Elbow has tipped their hat even harder to the likes of Talk Talk and Peter Gabriel… this is a good thing. Anyway, go listen to it. Also, I decided that the uglier the band is, the better they are. These guys are way ugly and their shit RULES.

Constantines – Kensington Heights

It’s about time. Constantines have been in heavy rotation in my CD player/iPod for years now ever since their Sub Pop debut… Now, with the release of their new album Kensington Heights on the Canadian label Arts & Crafts, they seem to be getting the proper push they deserve.

You can stream Kensington Heights in full on Constantines’ MySpace page before it hits stores in the US on April 29th. STREAM IT NOW. I’m not sure if there is a song that lives up to that of “Soon Enough” off of Tournament of Hearts, but with each listen this record grows on me more and more. Give it a whirl.
