You can listen to East River Pipe on your shitty computer speakers now
I'm not sure this is a good idea, because East River Pipe's new album We Live in Rented Rooms is not the kind of record you glom onto all at once, and certainly not while you're updating your Facebook page/checking your email/trying to figure out your fourth quarter estimated taxes. It requires, even more than most albums, a dark, quiet, patient kind of listening, preferably on headphones, or at least until you get the gist. But in any case, you can listen to it in a very compromised, computer-sound-system, multi-tasking sort of way, right now at the Merge Records website. Have a go here.
