On Oct. 7, Iceage will release Plowing Into the Field of Love, their third album and follow-up to last year’s You’re Nothing, via Matador. Based on early singles “The Lord’s Favorite,” and our recently Endless Playlisted track “Forever,” it’s pretty clear that the band has entered into a new sonic phase. No longer the chaotic post-punk band of their first two albums, the Copenhagen-based outfit has embraced their darker, romantic side, taking cues from the likes of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. And they wear it well; punk bleeds transitions pretty nicely into gothic blues, it turns out.
Starting today, you can hear the entirety of that transition for yourself; Matador has made the full album available to stream via a YouTube playlist. Listen to the Iceage Plowing Into the Field of Love stream below.
