Forgoing CDs altogether, the Portland, Ore., band will instead release three multitrack downloads (vinyl singles will also be available). The series kicks off with rockabilly romp ”Valerie Plame,” which finds them ruminating on the ex-CIA agent. Its ”flip side” is ”O New England,” a whimsical ode to the Northeast.
