8 Albums You Can Stream Right Now: Mount Eerie, Zacht Automaat, “Father John Misty” and more…

In the spirit of discoverness, freedoming, and sharehood, try out some new albums before you buy them.

- Jan 28, 2015
New streams this week from weird and wonderful Canadian bands Freak Heat Waves and Zacht Automaat, plus new albums from film director John Carpenter, prolific enigma Aphex Twin, and one that calls into question this whole post. But don't worry, we stuck it at the bottom.

Mount EerieSauna

"SAUNA" by Mount Eerie (official video)

Who? Phil Elverum's drone-rock is heavy and all-encompassing, the kind of music that makes you stop and stare out the window. It's also our favourite album of the week. Find out why on Chart Attack tomorrow.

Where can I hear it? NPR

What should I do while I listen? Check out Elverum's Twitter, maybe the best in the game.

When's it out? February 3 via P.W. Elverum & Sun

John CarpenterLost Themes

Who? Horror film director John Carpenter pulls a David Lynch and jumps out from behind the camera to record his first album of music that doesn't come attached to images.

Where can I hear it? NPR

What should I do while I listen? A.V. Club's got a handy primer of John Carpenter, the director. Might we also suggest Netflix?

Aphex TwinComputer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Pt2

Who? Now that the floodgates are open, former recluse Richard D. James has more music than you have time to hear. His latest is an EP of prepared piano and other only-kind-of-electronic experiments.

What should I do after I listen? Listen to, like, 5o more songs that may or may not be Aphex Twin.

When's it out? Now via Warp

Percussions, 2011 until 2014

Who? Like his buddy Dan Snaith, Kieran Hebden, a.k.a. Four Tet, has too much music for one moniker. So he's been releasing 12" under the new name Percussions. This collects them all, plus some other one-offs.

What should I do after I listen? Check out Caribou Vibration Ensemble, the live version of Caribou that includes Hebden.

Father John MistyI Love You, Honeybear

Father John Misty - Bored in the USA (Live Performance at Spotify)

Who? In the spirit of discoverness, freedoming, and sharehood, Josh Tillman has introduced a brand new streaming service for his upcoming album, introducing SAP, "a new signal-to-audio process by which popular albums are 'sapped' of their performances, original vocal, atmosphere and other distracting affectations so the consumer can decide quickly and efficiently whether they like a musical composition, based strictly on its formal attributes, enough to spend money on it."

Where can I hear it? SAP!

What should I do while I listen? Check out more from Josh Tillman, publicist extraordinaire.

When's it out? February 3 on Sub Pop
