Free Album Streaming: Airborne Toxic Event, Dengue Fever, Emmylou Harris, the Watson Twins, & More

Now streaming: "Cannibal Courtship," the latest album of Cambodian pop and psychedelic rock from Dengue Fever.

Here's the latest in my semi-regular listing of (a sampling of) the new or upcoming albums that are available for free preview. And a reissue of an old Superchunk album. For some reason, NPR Music hasn't listed the end dates for streaming, but since most of the CDs are coming out April 26, they may be only be available for preview until then.

I'm particularly interested in hearing the latest album from Dengue Fever, the band that combines Cambodian music with a 1960s feel. And the "Night Covers" EP from the Watson Twins, in which the Kentucky-native, L.A.-based identical twins offer renditions of songs by artists ranging from PJ Harvey to Bill Withers, Sade, and the Black Keys.

Which ones are you most interested in hearing?
