New Music Tuesday: Until The Ribbon Breaks, Sleater-Kinney, Belle And Sebastian, Viet Cong

The following four albums are available for advance streaming and come at our highest recommendation. All can be streamed via NPR First Listen.

A Lesson Unlearnt - Until The Ribbon Breaks

This electro-R&B trio packs a mind-blowing range of R&B, electronic, and hip-hop influences into their new record, making it a feast for the ears. Stream it here and pre-order it here

No Cities To Love - Sleater-Kinney

The members of punk rock trio Sleater-Kinney have returned from their respective projects with a punch and a scream on their new record. Stream it here and pre-order it here

Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance - Belle And Sebastian

That remains to be seen, Belle And Sebastian, but we are willing to try it because we trust you. The folk band’s ninth album is a foray into new terrain (read: more electronic?) apparently . Stream it here and pre-order it here

Viet Cong - Viet Cong

Post-punk band Viet Cong release their debut LP next week. From one moment to the next, it moves from post-punk angstiness to calm ambiance, a wonderful contradiction. Stream it here and pre-order it here
