Baroness's 'Yellow' & Green' Now Streaming Online
Ambitious new double album will be quite literally everywhere
Thanks to us measly writers, the hype surrounding Baroness’s outstanding new double album Yellow & Green, which comes out July 17 on Relapse, is officially through the roof. Three tracks have premiered to great fanfare, two cover stories on the band have been published in American glossy magazines, and now smartly in response to the album’s leak online last week, the new record now streaming in its entirety over at NPR and Spin, and will also be soon posted at Paste and Exclaim as well. Yeah, we like this thing a great deal; I’ve been listening to this album for the past three months now, and have yet to tire of it.
I’ve written plenty about Yellow & Green already, about how it’s so rare that a band crosses over from metal to straight-up rock this completely and this successfully, and my full review will appear next week. In the meantime, go on and hear what all the fuss is about. If 18 songs over 75 minutes looks a little daunting, I suggest checking out the outstanding deep cuts “Cocainium” and “Board Up the House”.
Or go listen to Yellow & Green at Spin.com. Either way, go listen. It's the album of the summer.
