The Dismemberment Plan - "Waiting"

The endlessly inventive DC postpunkers the Dismemberment Plan, one of my favorite bands of all time, have been back together and intermittently touring for a few years, and they recently announced some great news: There’s a new album coming. Uncanney Valley, the band’s fifth album, comes out in October, which feels like an eternity from now. But they’ve just picked a weird way to share “Waiting,” the album’s first single. If you dial 252-64-DPLAN, you can hear the song over your phone connection. It’s a shifty and nervous but bizarrely slick piece of indie-pop, and it’s got Travis Morrison in almost as wordy a zone as he was on “The Dismemberment Plan Get Rich.” Hearing it on a not-great phone connection is a uniquely frustrating experience, but it’s still better than not hearing a new D-Plan song. Give it a call. UPDATE: The song is on the internet now. Check it out below.

Uncanney Valley

  1. Does anybody know where i can find a link to this song without calling that number?

  2. wtf? that was definitely not better than not hearing a new dplan song.

  3. Reminds me of They Might Be Giants’ Dial-A-Song where you could call and hear their demos.

  4. Love the D-Plan, but this song blows. Sounds like a shit Geggy Tah. Hope the other stuff is a bit better.

  5. I liked it.
