Uncanny Valley, the D-Plan's first record in over a decade, is out tomorrow! And today (and for the past few days, really, I've been out of town and a little behind on the news) NPR is streaming the whole thing so you can have a listen before the official release.
I've only had the chance to go through it once, so I'm not prepared to write an official review quite yet, but there is a point where you can yell out "FUCK!" along with the gang vocals and there's also steel drum that isn't the least bit annoying (I often find steel drum in pop and/or rock songs to be annoying).
Have a listen! It's a really fun record. I feel like it's been a long time since I've listened to a really good, fun record. If nothing else, blast "Go and Get It" (track 9) if you find yourself falling into a Monday afternoon slump.
I'm so glad the Dismemberment Plan are back.
The Dismemberment Plan play the Neptune Theatre December 7th with Telekinesis. The show is all ages and tickets are available here.
