...Earth To The Dandy Warhols...: Orbiting, Streaming, Landing

I swear, last post on ...Earth To The Dandy Warhols... I promise.

So, the album was made available at 3AM EST, midnight local Portland time for the masses. The album is available to stream, for free, from their website. If you want to put it on your iPod, it'll cost you a few pretty pennies but you do get some goodies with it:

For a mere $35, you get to download the album right away (320kbps/DRM-Free for you audiophiles like myself), a copy of the physical CD before it is in stores later this year, and that fancy poster as seen above. You'll also get the first crack at concert tickets, a coupon for 10% off at their webstore, and maybe best of all, a handful of b-sides and live tracks over the next "Earth year." Crazy kids.

First impressions? Quite good. I haven't had a chance to make it all the way through quite yet, but "Welcome To The Third World" sticks out as a gem - the audio equivalent to a contact high perhaps? Also super stoked with the appearance of "And Then I Dreamt Of Yes." For those not in the loop, the song was originally recorded as part of an aborted Dandy Warhols/Massive Attack record and was titled "House Of Yes." They didn't stray to far from the original, so big ups on that.
