Calgary's Viet Cong are set to release their highly anticipated debut album Viet Cong on January 20th. The album features seven songs filled with post-punk and psychedelic elements -- some tracks like "Continental Shelf" and "Silhouettes" have more of a Joy Division/Chameleons/Interpol sound; others have more of a 60's psychedelic vibe; and the final song, the 11 minute "Death" will just astound you with its intensity. 

Viet Cong is a stellar, stellar record.  Though we're only two weeks into 2015 it's too soon to talk 'Best Albums of the Year,' but there's not doubt Viet Cong is going to be a 'Album of the Year' contender, at least in my world. Stream it in full ahead of its release over at NPR (through January 18th) and pre-order Viet Cong from iTunes, Amazon, and Viet Cong's webstore.

UPDATE: Stream no longer available on NPR. Stream full LP below
