Free Range Music: BoC, Matthew Herbert, The Replacements

The Replacements -- Don't You Know Who I Think I Was?AOL Music's full-album stream fix has two superlative electronic releases available for your aural consumption, electronic provocateur Matthew Herbert's Scale and Boards Of Canada's Trans Canada Highway EP. The former packs a lusty bump, one of several means at Herbert's disposal with which he candy-coats his often hyper-political work. Scale sounds like it is straight-up party time, but if you recall Rob Albanese's very good Junkmedia feature interview from last year, you know it's never straight-up party time in Herbert's world. BoC's EP is typically strong, as you hopefully learned from checking out the video we linked to earlier this month. Elsewhere, and at the rock end of the spectrum, make sure to check out the full album stream of the forthcoming Replacements best-of that Paul's Page is pointing to and Rhino is hosting right now. The curiously curated and all-too-brief 20-song set Don't You Know Who I Think I Was? streets on the very busy release date of June 13. Finally, IODA's PromoNet has posted three high-quality MP3s from Brooklyn nu-gazers Asobi Seksu's transcendant sophomore release Citrus, which finally streeted today. Read our earlier adoration of Citrus here. Links below go to streams or MP3s.
