Ted Leo & The Pharmacists New Album & A Free Download

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists are planning to release their new album The Brutalist Bricks on March 9, 2010. It will be the first album released through the band’s new label Matador Records.

Matador: “R30;make no mistake, ‘The Brutalist Bricks’,  is one of those career-defining, “can you believe what you’re hearing?” kinda records that makes most other activity the day you first play it nearly impossible (in other words, we’re suggesting you shower before you open the package).

Recorded through 2009 at Brooklyn’s Seaside Lounge, ‘Bricks’ could be the most confident, kinetic and varied work in Ted’s canon, and considering his body of work until now, that’s no easy claim to make. If you’ve seen Ted/Rx at any point in the past year, you’ve probably heard a few of the songs before, but the final studio versions pack a considerable punch. And here’s a punch to tide you over (we’d prefer you pay for the full beating)
