Moon Tides, the new album from Pure Bathing Culture, is streaming in full over on Pitchfork this week. It's the first full-length record from the Portland band, centered around guitarist Daniel Hindman and vocalist/keyboardist Sarah Versprille, and follows up their splendid self-titled EP from last year. The album is shimmering, soothing, mystic pop, perfect for the last few weeks of summertime. It comes out next week, on August 20. Check it out.

It's one of several worthwhile new albums you can stream on your computing machine. Superchunk's great new one, I Hate Music, is over on NPR, and (as previously mentioned) so is Typhoon's outstanding, symphonic White Lighter and Ty Segall's foray into (relatively) mellower acoustic music, Sleeper. Perhaps best of all is the new album from Diarrhea Planet, I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, which is streaming in full on Spin. It's butt rock at its best. You hate the band name but you will love the music.

UPDATE! Add Laura Veirs' beautiful new one, Warp and Weft, to this stacked deck. That's streaming over on Paste.
