M. Ward's "Hold Time" Streaming on NPR

I would argue that Ward's last record 2006's Post-War is his best. That said, I've been eagerly awaiting the release of Hold Time. And although it's not set for release until Feb 17 on Merge, NPR is streaming the entire record right now. As I finish this post, I'm midway through song two, and thus far, very, very nice.
