M.I.A. is streaming her new album, /\/\/\Y/\, on her MySpace account. It's also for sale on iTunes, even though it's not out until July 13 via N.E.E.T./Interscope. After the first three tracks, my arm hairs haven't settled down, so I anticipate the rest of its greatness, even though her ex-boyfriend Diplo said a few weeks ago on Twitter (@diplo), "just listened to mastr of the MIA album.. WOW.. my 3 trax are slammin! dunno bout the rest-sounds like skinny puppy ☹ & gives me nightmares☹"
In fact, today Diplo responded to this Twitter question: "Tell me why does it sound like a toilet just flushed at the end of 'Tell Me Why'????" thusly: "cuz rest of album is a turd."
