Stream: Belle and Sebastian – “Write About Love”

It’s been 4 years since their last album, but indie pop band Belle and Sebastian are back with Write About Love dropping October 12th. With it’s 60’s pop feel and special guest appearances like Norah Jones it keeps my attention and I like it, but the question is will the true B&S followers like it? Probably…I mean they aren’t taking any risks within this album but why mess with a good thing. You can stream the album on NPR Music until it’s release date.

Stream: John Legend and The Roots – “Wake Up”

Stream the new John Legend and The Roots collaborative album Wake Up via NPR until a week after it’s release date on September 21. I haven’t been too thrilled by anything Legend has done since his debut album so I am quite pleased by what I am hearing so far off this one which includes some cover renditions of classic songs by Marvin Gaye and Nina Simone.. If you are into 1960’s soul music then you will probably as well enjoy.

Stream: Ra Ra Riot’s “The Orchard” Full Album

I personally believe that NPR will be needing to to another Top Albums of 2010 at the end of the year because there is some more great albums being released. One that I just listened to was Ra Ra Riot’s The Orchard which is being released August 24th. I’m straight up digging this album which is streaming on NPR up until the release date. In some songs there is a hint of Vampire Weekend and I have to admit that when I heard the strings in the opening song “The Orchard” I thought it was Dr.Dre. My personal picks are “Too Dramatic” and “Massachusetts.” Stream these songs and more off Ra Ra Riot’s new album on NPR Music here.

NPR recently polled a large amount of listeners to compile a list of the Top Albums of 2010 so far. Surprisingly, The Gorillaz album Plastic Beach came out on top.

Also making the top 10 were The Black Keys, Broken Bells, Beach House and one of our personal favorites here, Mumford & Sons. Check out the full list and download a PDF of the Top 50 at NPR.
