Later this month, the Staten Island indie rock band Cymbals Eat Guitars will release LOSE, their grand, expansive, generally awesome new album. The LP is inspired by the death of a guy who was friends with the band, but the LP doesn’t sound depressive or numbed. Instead, it’s huge and alive and bursting with melody and spirit. If anything, it’s the most immediate and intense thing the band has ever done. We’ve posted three songs from the album — “Jackson,” “Chambers,” “Warning” — and all of them rule. And right now, you can stream the entire album over at NPR. So go do that.
