We all know that most acts now stream their albums the week before they come out, and I thought it might make sense to have one thread where we all share links to streams (and perhaps link to threads or articles discussing the record in question, rather than making this thread too unwieldy).
The main places to keep an eye out for album streams are:
- http://drownedinsound.com/lists/streams (we run about one a fortnight)
- http://www.nme.com/author/nme-blog (couldn't see one page with streams on)
- http://hypem.com/ (an album linked from frontpage each week)
- iTunes first look (can't find a direct link, and likely to become Beats-related this year)
- http://www.stereogum.com/category/mp3s/album-stream/ (mostly links to the above)
- http://consequenceofsound.net/category/news/stream/ (similar to Stereogum's googlebait/clickbait)
- http://albumstreams.com/ (link aggregator)
Anywhere else reliable?
