Harvey Danger has a new album!

Harvey Danger - Little by Little (2005, available exclusively at or an independent record store near you!)

Do you remember Harvey Danger? You know, the guys who had that hit "Flagpole Sitta" from their okay first album and then went on to make a much better follow-up album that you didn't bother to listen to? Yeah, that band!

Indeed, Harvey Danger's second album King James Version was an overlooked gem much in keeping with the other bands of the Seattle indie rock scene like Death Cab for Cutie, Nada Surf and the Long Winters (of whom Harvey Danger frontman Sean Nelson is a member). And because none of you bastards bothered to buy the CD, Harvey Danger broke up... but wait, they are back with a new album, Little by Little!

But that's not even the best part. The best part is that if you visit the download page of the official Harvey Danger website, you can download the entire album legally and for free! No catches! Harvey Danger wants you to hear this fucking album. And then, hopefully, after you listen to it, you will say "Yes, Harvey Danger is a good band. I am stupid for ignoring them after that first album."

I've heard the album, and I highly recommend it. In fact, I'd recommend you just skip the listening process and order the new CD off the site (with which you will recieve a free bonus CD of rarities!). But if you must download the album first, be my guest! I recommend giving a good listen to "Little Round Mirrors" which was the track that stood out to me upon first listen. I look forward to many more.

To understand exactly why Harvey Danger made this decision to leak their own album, visit here and read their press statement. It makes a whole lot of sense.
