Hear It Now: School of Seven Bells' 'Disconnect From Desire'

Check out the New York rockers' second disc before it hits stores July 13th

July 1, 2010 11:02 AM ET

On their excellent second album Disconnect From Desire, New York's School of Seven Bells update the atomic, textured sound of classic shoegaze bands like Ride and My Bloody Valentine with danceable beats, of-the-moment electronic textures and some of the prettiest, angelic vocals (courtesy of identical twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza) in indie rock. To celebrate the release of their new LP, which hits stores on July 13th, Rolling Stone has a complete advance album stream. (Pre-order the album here.) Highlights include the uplifting electronic ballad "Babelonia" and "I L U," which fuses ex-Secret Machines member Benjamin Curtis' chiming guitars and droning vocal samples with Alejandra's sensual vocals.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
