Apparently August has been renamed "Give Away Your Awesome Music For Free!" month, because the Internet is teeming with free streaming music. I know this happens all the time (MySpace, Facebook,Bandcamp, blah blah blah), but right now, that music actually good, and most of it is coming courtesy of NPR. A few examples:

  • The Thermals' Personal Life, which Reverb's Erin Thompson say "has all the heart of the band's best album, 2006's The Body, the Blood, the Machine."
  • Justin Townes Earle's Harlem River Blues, which will be officially released Sept 14.
  • The Walkmen's Lisbon, also out Sept. 14.
  • A new song from Sufjan Stevens' upcoming The Age of Adz, "I Walked." (Thankfully, this song is only five minutes long, but if you like 'em longer, Stevens' EP is still streaming at Bandcamp, along with a whole bunch of his other albums.)
Need more? Pitchfork has a rundown of others here.
