Album Stream: The Notwist - Close to the Glass

The Notwist

The Notwist'sClose to the Glass is their first record for Sub Pop and their first record in six years, but it also shows off just how good these guys are at doing what they do. You can get a taste for yourself courtesy NPR, who are streaming the record a week in advance of its physical release date. Every track has its heartbeat-like kraut-y pulse, but the songs vary from experimental electronica to instantly accessible pop rock to weirdly catchy noise-pop jams (like the excellent, Liars-recalling title track). You can pick up a physical copy starting February 25.
