Since we already know that NPR rocks (“All Things Considered,” what, what) it’s only fitting that NPR Music would stream new albums from Regina Spektor and Moby days before their respective releases. For free, no less!
As part of their “Exclusive First Listen” (which has previously streamed the likes of Bruce Springsteen and the Dirty Projectors) series, Spektor’s Far (due June 23) will begin streaming on npr.org/music from June 18-30 (MySpace will have it up too, from the 16th-17th), while Moby’s Wait for Me can be heard here from June 15th right up to the album’s release (June 30).
What do you think, Music Mixers? Will you stream the new albums from Spektor and Moby? Has NPR taken over the ranks for MySpace in terms of worthwhile music streaming? Or will you just wait for the albums to come out?
