After last week's less than stellar stream selection, we are going to stream hard with a vengeance (somebody should probably cut Bruce Willis a check now). We're bringing you the debut full-length from one of 2012's most buzzed-about bands (the Alabama Shakes), another album from critical darlings and world music faves Amadou & Mariam, and even some new material from veteran rockers Spiritualized. I'm going to be listening to the new Amadou & Mariam album for the rest of the month if it's half as good as Welcome to Mali
, but feel free to stake your own claim of this week's choice musical cuts.
Alabama Shakes. Boys and Girls
Amadou and Mariam. Folila
Spiritualized. Sweet Heart Sweet Light
Bonnie Raitt. Slipstream
