Songs wot leaked this summer

Not that I want to encourage you to steal music (I’d hate coughing up for Mr TimeWarnerUniversalMegastores’s dole money as much as giving empty praise to its products) but a few forthcoming albums have been “digitally previewed” in one way or another including:


The XX*

The Big Pink*

A Place to Bury Strangers*

Simian Mobile Disco*

Them Crooked Vultures (read up on their fantastic viral campaign!)

Sunna (click through for an explanation of how the band that was set to write the Spiderman 2 theme fell into obscurity)


Silversun Pickups*


Imogen Heap* (the aforementioned fan collaboration, praised by Bob Lefetz)

*= full album has leaked/is legally available to stream

A few Weezer tracks have also leaked – which are pleasant enough.  The new Muse record, on the other hand,  is to be approached with caution.

Any that I missed?

Incidentally, The Hype Machine have added this nifty twitter chart to their service, for those of us who like to Microscrobble.

*EDIT* Add Fuck Buttons to that list
