Stream PJ Harvey's Let England Shake, And Hope She Adds Another Terminal 5 Show

James Blake has probably got Album Everyone Will Be Talking About This Week honors all sewn up for now, but roundabout next Tuesday a nation's fawning eyes will turn to PJ Harvey's fantastic Let England Shake, far from the screamiest entry in her 20-year catalog (!), but among the bleakest, hardest, angriest -- call it "pastoral punk," but not within her earshot, because she'll bury you herself. (No woman alive can make strumming an autoharp feel and sound like an act of unimaginable violence.) NPR is streaming the whole record right now -- "Words That Maketh Murder" and the minimalist/brutalist "England" are hitting hardest on first listen.

As for her the April 20 Terminal 5 show she announced last week, that has, not at all surprisingly, sold out; hopefully she'll be adding another one soon. Sharon Van Etten probably already has her ticket, so don't let her get the drop on you again.
