NPR is currently streaming the upcoming release All Eternals Deck from The Mountain Goats until it’s released on March 29. I’m only a few songs in, but so far I like it quite a bit more than their 2009 release The Life Of The World To Come. If you’re on twitter and not following Mountain Goats lead singer John Darnielle, you should definitely do so after hitting play. You can find him at @mountain_goats.

Here’s the original story on NPR.

Thanks once again to the good folks at NPR, here is the upcoming Decemberists album, The King Is Dead, in its entirety. The album will be released on Jan. 18. Coming off their previous release, the incredibly indulgent rock opera The Hazards Of Love, this new effort is an intentional step away from the excessive.

Let me know what you think — I liked what I heard at first listen…

Here’s the original story on NPR.
