It's music and it's free! (for now)

Why, hello there. There's a brand spankin' new Henry Clay People EP up for a free stream, and you can find it by clicking here. You can also see the Henry Clay People get sweaty and fatigued on a Coachella stage later this week.

Otherwise, here's a spiffy button that'll allow you to download a song off the new EP, "California Wildfire."


Additionally, the brand new (as in, comes out April 12) Crystal Stilts album, In Love with Oblivion, is available for free stream on the Hype Machine right now. And it's awfully good - the band can best be summarized as a combination of the most overcited influences in rock, meaning there's an Ian Curtis imitation crooning its way over Velvet Underground-drumming that leads into a bit of T. Rex glam. And there's spacey, '60s-style kitsch all throughout. But the record is somehow not boring, not contrived, and is all in all a really fun listen. "Sycamore Tree" and "Shake the Shackles" are particular favorites.

Oh! And guess who's playing at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles on May 6? Yes, that's right. These guys!
