Where would one find such a thing?

Spinner.com

Click on Listening Party, located to the left, and it takes you to new releases that are streaming for free. Scroll through until you see Mono.

Just months after their last album, God Is An Astronaut has a new online single for free download through their myspace page. The song is called Shining Through; it's pretty good and sounds like the last album.

Supposedly they were going to release an EP, but ended up with so much material that they will now have another album coming out this fall! So just the one song now, but I'm all for it if it means a whole album waiting in the wings.

Well, I listened to a few more songs from Mono. Mofo was right; it's too slow and "pretty" for me.

Make sure to listen to The Battle To Heaven, it's probably the heaviest song on the album.


I'll have to remember to check out God is an Astronaut's Myspace after work, cant access Myspace here.

Well damn. Explosions in the Sky is playing here on a Saturday night in late June, at a venue I like, after school's over, while I'm still in town and No Age is opening.

I just listened to an mp3 of a song from their newest album and I really liked it. Tickets are 20 clams (30 after LiveNation bends me over), and I'm just tired enough to seriously consider going to see a band I know nothing about.

Holy crapoli, GO TO THAT SHOW.

Don't think twice. You'll love Explosions in the Sky for the rest of your life, trust me. And if you get to see No Age on the bill as well, seems like a no brainer. Do it!

Damnit, Martha. I just looked the show up, Eluvium is opening in LA as well. You HAVE to go to that show!!!!!

Go to this page. Click on each album, there will be a free song to download from each one, and "The Rescue" in its entirety. Make sure to get the tracks from The Earth is a Cold Dead Place and Those Who Tell the Truth. Between Sigur Ros and Mogwai, I almost entirely owe my love of post-rock to those two albums alone.

There are a ton on their Myspace as well:

Jiminy! I don't think I've ever seen you get so excited before.

That's sales-pitch enough for me.

SERIOUSLY GO! EITS was one of the most intense live experiences I've ever, ever had, and I've seen some great performers over the past couple years. It was out of this world how the music envelopes you and you get lost in it. So amazing.
