New Music: Listen To Garbage’s ‘Not Your Kind Of People’

Crystal’s Team Pick:

Wouldn’t it be funny if Spin posted an exclusive stream of Garbage‘s forthcoming album, Not Your Kind Of People, on their website but then only let readers who live in the USA listen to it? No you’re right, that wouldn’t be funny. That would be kind of upsetting.

I think I’ve mentioned once or maybe a dozen times that I’m super keen to hear this new album, and so I was thinking that maybe some of you US-based Garbage fans could go listen to it and then report back so that I can live vicariously through your lovely American ears. I think I would like that.

Do you like it? Was it worth the 7-year wait? TELL ME EVERYTHING. Also, Spin‘s interview with Shirley Manson is a great read.

  1. You should get TunnelBear. It lets you access content that is US only and it’s free.

    Also I’m listening to the album right now. I’m liking it so far.

    • Also thank you for posting this link! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this album forever!

  2. Thanks Crystal! I’m so excited to listen to this but I have to go to work now :( I’ll listen tonight and give you a full report with lots of FEELINGS!

  3. Unrelated to Garbage, but still music news – the lead singer of punk band Against Me! came out as a transwoman today and everyone’s being cool about it, which is pretty awesome.

  4. Trying to listen to this album but cannot stop replaying “I Hate Love”. It gives me all the feelings. Also, I’ll be singing this beautiful creature in concert. No words for my excitement!

  5. after an initial listen, i like it.

    using the line “this little light of mine, i’m gonna let it shine” in “Beloved Freak.” awesome. and yes yes YES to “I Hate Love.”

  6. I love that interview with Shirley Manson, such a great read. Haven’t had a chance to stream Not Your Kind of People yet, but I’m super looking forward to it.

  7. a friend heard this record a few months back and told me it was “better than it needs to be,” which = my feelings. i LOVE the synth sounds and guitar riffs they’re using. so excited to see them live in a couple of weeks!

  8. i accidentally walked into a meet-and-greet with them a couple weeks ago… guess i should check out the music now, hah.
