A couple of bits of news worth sharing:
* Buva is almost ready to release its first full-length album, All This Humming, next month. Some of you may remember their 2004 EP Daydream, which was well-received upon its release. If you haven't heard Daydream, you can stream it here (click on "media"). And now three tracks from the new one are streaming at Buva's myspace page. I'm enjoying them - very good soft pop, kind of like Matthew Sweet's mellower tunes.
* Ranchero, the debut album from Park Police that came out last year, is available on eMusic as of this morning. Read more about this release here and here. You can stream four tracks here. I give this one a thumbs-up as well.
