Jul 14, 2009

Listen to this track

Now fans of The Dodos can give a long, hard listen to Time to Die, the followup to one of UTR's top 2008 releases, Visiter. The San Francisco indie trio is combating last week's leakage by offering a 320kbps stream of the whole album. "Fables" is the ebullient, strum-y third track off the forthcoming album. Time to Die will be released on Frenchkiss September 15. In a video on the site, singer/guitarist Meric Long explains: "We want you to hear it, and we want you to feel it." Though the physical LP's is unchanged (it drops August 31 in the U.K.), the digital release has been moved way up, to July 27 in the U.K. and July 28 in the U.S. For a week, the album will be available for digital download in the U.S. only at Amazon.
