Every Tuesday marks the start of a new week in music with hundreds of releases from bands all over the country. Well today, two Bay Area artists are giving their fans a small tease before the release of their new full-lengths this Fall.

The Dodos, in the shadows of a potential album leak, have decided to release their brand new full length Time to Die in the form of a full album stream. You can listen to the entire album for free at timetodie.net. Time to Die will be released digitally on July 28th and physically on September 15th on French Kiss; pre-orders can be purchased here. Word has it for the initial digital release, held exclusively at Amazon MP3 for the first week, Time to Die will cost you under $4.

We have also been anticipating the next release from Oakland's Why? entitled Eskimo Snow and although we have an interview already in the bin and a future studio sessions in the mix, we have not been able to hear a single track off that album...until now.
