New Music Tuesday!

Today sees the release of music from some great artists:

Bon Iver – Blood Bank [EP] [Buy: Amazon]

Bon Iver’s follow-up to the highly-acclaimed “For Emma, Forever Ago.” Here’s the opening title track: “Blood Bank.”  I like this track but I found the EP’s last track to be almost unlistenable and since it’s only a 4-song EP, that constitutes 25% of the album.  :-/

Andrew Bird – A Noble Beast [Buy: iTunes / Amazon]

This album will be the 35-year-old Chicagoan’s 5th studio album. Here’s the opening track, “Oh No” and another track I’m particularly enjoying, “Effigy.” Stream the entire album at his MySpace.

Antony & The Johnsons – The Crying Light [Buy: iTunes / Amazon]

I’m really enjoying this album and am amazed that it’s living up to my ridiculous expectations.  Here’s the lead single, “Another World” and a particularly beautiful track, “Epilepsy Is Dancing.” See my earlier post on Antony & The Johnsons for more downloads.  Read New York Magazine’s great interview with Antony about this album here.
