The Polyphonic Spree's forthcoming album Yes It's True is previewing right now on Pitchfork, complete with virtual CD book including lyrics. This is their first album of original material since 2007's The Fragile Army.

Yay! I'm really impressed by how fresh and current the sound is given the band has been around for so long. Thanks for posting.

A flashback to old PS promotional materials: The Quest for The Rest, a flash game from Amanita Design made to promote their second album.

Polyphonic Spree is one of those bands I've always meant to get into and haven't gotten around to. Thanks for giving me the chance to try the new album; I'm enjoying it.

I wonder if that has anything to do with their ever-changing lineup - might help keep the freshness that a static band loses.

Wow thank you for this. I don't know how I managed to go over a decade without ever hearing this amazing group before.

For a brief moment I thought Polyphonic Spree was covering an entire Yes album, which would've been a gift from the gods.

Oh wow, this sounds great so far! Thanks.

(By the way, I'll never forget the delight and cognitive dissonance I experienced when I idly turned on TNT one day and saw the PS guest-starring on a rerun of that show Las Vegas.)

Wow. Just saw them perform about three weeks ago in DC (at where else, a synagogue*) and they were still playing almost all older stuff...I guess they really wanted to keep this under wraps.

Always feel a little melancholy for Tripping Daisy when I listen to Polyphonic Spree for the first time in a while.

Oh, and also? The opening track - anyone else getting more than a hint of deliciously Lets Active style from it? Great!
