I’m debating getting some last minute tickets to go see Cultsat Lee’s Palace on Monday because I’ve been loving their new stuff so much. Always Forever is a great slow jam for a Sunday,I’ve been playing it on repeat since I woke up, which was about an hour ago. Their new album Static came out in October, if you like what you hear I’d suggest picking it up.

Personally I love a little album teaser, I’d prefer a full album leak* because I’m impatient like that, but I’ll take what I can get.
I’ve noticed a couple of album teasers this week and thought I’d share. The first is from New York band, Cults, their new album Static is out October 15, find the teaser below — which only lets you listen to like, 15 seconds of a song, but you can hear the full single, I Can Hardly Make You Minehere via NPR. Sounds retro and current at the same time, I’m enjoying it.
Is this really a teaser? I’m not so sure. Why is it on a separate website named The Reflektors… I don’t know (I’m confused) but apparently that’s the title of the album which is supposed to be released October 29. I am really pumped to hear the whole thing and excited that they will be touring again so I have the chance to watch this band live finally.
Looks like October will be a good month for album releases. Are you looking forward to any new albums?
*Quick disclaimer: Just because I love listening to a full album before it’s sold, doesn’t mean I don’t still buy music. I do :) I just also really like checking out the goods before I purchase anything… in a non-erotic way. K, thanks byeee
