This week proffers an embarrassment of riches in terms of noteworthy albums streaming online in advance of their official releases.

First up is British indie rockers Bloc Party, whose fourth LP (and first in almost exactly four years), appropriately titled Four, is streaming at the band's website leading up to its Aug. 21 release on Frenchkiss Records.


Also out next week is Brooklyn experimental/psychedelic genre-mashers Yeasayer’s follow-up to 2010’s poppy Odd Blood. Fragrant World is currently streaming over at NPR First Listen.

Yet another album out next week is L.A. psychedelic weirdos Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s Mature Themes, the follow-up to 2010’s Before Today, which, again, is streaming over at NPR.

And, yet again, streaming at NPR is Divine Fits’ debut LP, A Thing Called Divine Fits. The indie supergroup—consisting of Britt Daniel of Spoon, Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade, and Sam Brown of New Bomb Turks—is set to release its new record at the tail end of August through Merge Records.
