Exclusive Album Preview: Stream "Career Culture" by Icarus Himself

By Nancy Woo

Oh my gosh, how excited are you for what I am about to tell you?

For a limited time only, in fact only a few extra-special, one-of-a-kind hours tonight, you can stream the new album Career Culture by Icarus Himself - the radiant electro-psych-folk trio from the town everybody adores, Madison, WI.

Have you never heard of Icarus Himself?? Of course, you know the ancient Greek story of the young and strapping, bit-too-daring Icarus, son of Daedelus, who flew too close to the sun and scorched his handmade wings until they were putty, thereby plummeting into the sea?

Icarus Him- wait a minute, the Greeks could fly?

Anyway, now since you know the tragic story of Icarus, for one preview night only, let your ears and your senses become bedazzled by Icarus Himself. We offered the song "On Your Side" as a free download during a previous Free Music Friday session, which you can still snag. And now, friends and fans, I am pleased to announce that in addition to this beautifully layered, achingly compelling absolute gem of a song, you can now stream the entire album Career Culture in its entirety below, one full week before the album will officially be released. However, this limited time offer really is limited - Icarus Himself, like Cinderella herself, will strip the Internet of its Career Culture privileges once the clock strikes midnight tonight.

I highly recommend streaming the album below for an enticing taste of this hypnotizingly, mesmerizingly soothing yet stimulating blend of some of today's best electronic/instrumental music. The way to listen to the album is this: go ahead and stream it once, letting it wash over you, then listen to it again later. The quality of this music is such that I almost guarantee the first time through, you will be in such a surreal state of a pleasant daydream that it will take the second time through to let the full shining brilliance of the album saturate your being entirely. Perhaps buying it when it hits stores (and digital stores) October 11th will do the trick. (*subtlety*)

Extra Online Rock props for socially relevant album title + cat.

So, please stream Career Culture by Madison, WI-based trio Icarus Himself below, but make sure to listen and share with all your friends before midnight tonight, because that's when this strappy little Soundcloud player will go *poof*.
