New Stars Album The Five Ghosts Stream!

Stars is one of my favourite bands. Their album Set Yourself On Fire is one of my all-time favourite albums. While I didn't like In Our Bedroom After the War quite as much, I am looking forward to their new release The Five Ghosts.

The new album is out next Tuesday but you can listen to a stream of it now at NPR.

Check out the New Gaslight Anthem Album American Slang

I rather like Gaslight Anthem. I caught them when they came through town for a gig at the Opera House. Their straight ahead rock sound with aggressive guitars and great stories had instant appeal to me.

Their new album, American Slang, is out June 15. You can check out a stream of the new album at NPR. Then mosey over to emusic or your fave retailer for your copy on the 15th.

I've only made it through the first couple of tracks myself so far, but it sounds uber-promising.
