Also streaming this week:

Songs, the US debut from Norwegian singer-songwriter Thomas Dybdahl (pronounced DIB-dul), doesn’t come out till 7/12, but it’s available for streaming until August 1 (well passed its release date) over at KCRW.

Player Piano, the new album from Memory Tapes—aka Davey Hawke—came out earlier this week via Carpark, however, if you’re still on the fence about it or haven’t heard it yet, head on over to Spinner to stream it in full.

The Fruit Tree Foundation, according to its site, is a new independent project led by Scottish musicians Rod Jones and Emma Pollock. The project aims to raise awareness of mental health and to challenge perceptions of mental health problems by creating great art. Its first project, the album First Edition, is pretty special. Recorded in a small house in Perthshire over a period of five days, the album, features a roster of Scotland’s finest indie rock and folk musicians: James Graham (Twilight Sad), Scott Hutchison (Frightened Rabbit), Rod Jones (Idlewild), Jill O’Sullivan (Sparrow and the Workshop), Emma Pollock, Karine Polwart, Jenny Reeve, Alasdair Roberts and James Yorkston. Pretty awesome. Available commercially for the first time, First Edition is available for streaming over at Spinner and is out now.
