Harvey Danger Giving Away Third Album

I wanna publish zines! And rage against machines! Yes, yes, most of you remember Harvey Danger only for 1997’s surprise hit “Flagpole Sitta” from the band’s debut Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?. But in 2000, the Seattle group released the follow-up, King James Version, which in addition to being a solid album, also boasts a fantastic title. I think, like, God used it for something, too. Mr. Danger fell silent as the post-grunge boom faded, but now they’re back with their third record, Little By Little…, released today on the band’s own Phonographic Records. It was produced by fellow Seattleites John Goodmanson and Steve Fisk, who have worked with Sleater-Kinney, Low, Blonde Redhead, and a little band called Nirvana that totally ripped off Harvey Danger. Little By Little… is on the racks at select independent record stores, but it will also be distributed on the band’s website for free, via BitTorrent starting next Tuesday, September 20, and as a straight-up download on September 27. Damn, that’s generous. As a reward for buying the physical disc, however, you’ll get a bonus CD with nine extra B-sides and outtakes. The single for “Cream and Bastards Rise” will be out in November on Kill Rock Stars.

Little by Little… tracklist:
01 Wine, Women, and Song
02 Cream & Bastards Rise
03 Moral Centralia
04 Little Round Mirrors
05 Happiness Writes White
06 Incommunicado
07 Cool James
08 What You Live By
09 War Buddies
10 Diminshing Returns
