On October 15th, acclaimed D.C. indie-rockers Dismemberment Plan will release Uncanney Valley, their first new album in 12 years. Now the band is celebrating the release of their new single, "Waiting," with some quirky audience participation: their brand-new website prompts fans to dial a band-related phone number (252-64-DPLAN), which leads to a stream of the track. 

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

"Waiting" finds the band in surprisingly bright territory, blending Travis Morrison's quirky vocals with snaky synths and a funky bassline. 

Uncanney Valley, the band's first full-length since 2001's Change, was announced  last month. The band first reunited in 2011 for a tour based around the reissue of their 1999 landmark album, Emergency and I.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
