I’ve been waiting to write this for two years.
First, the biggest news. Starting today, if you pre-order (or have already pre-ordered) our new album, Jet Plane and Oxbow, you can listen to it right now, by streaming it via Sub Pop’s web site. The album doesn’t officially release until January 22nd, so this is nearly a month early.
You can also listen to a podcast, “Headwaters”, in which I talk with WNYC’s John Schaefer about the origins and inspirations of the new album. The podcast includes demos, basic tracks, and outtakes, along with field recordings I made this year on remote rivers in Brazil and Guyana. If you’d like a preview, WNYC Soundcheck has an edited excerpt.
Hoping you’re having a good holiday, and looking forward to seeing you soon out on the road.
