While it's not Chinese Democracy, Norfolk & Western have been spending a loooonnnnnggg time working on their new full-length, Dinero Severo. My cousin's neighbor's ex-girlfriend said that Adam Selzer insists his spiritual guru sit in during all recordings, Rachel Blumberg and Dave Depper both got cornrows, and the record cost about $13 million dollars to make. Then again, those are just rumors.
But since the band is about to hit the road with Mirah, they are offering up a stream of Dinero Severo (Severe Money?) for all to hear. Head on over to their site, sign up for their email list (get ready for a lifetime of spam from Norfolk & Western & V1ag5a Canadian Pharmacy) and the stream is all yours. The album doesn't have a release date, so it's either this, or stalk the band by sitting in a tree outside their practice space. Since there isn't any more room on my branch, go with the first option.
