If you aren't regularly visiting NPR music, shame on you. Why would I say that? Because you're missing awesome stuff like the chance to stream tracks from Steve Martin and Edie Brickell's new album Love Has Come For You, that's why.

From the post at NPR music: "On Love Has Come For You, Martin's third album, his roster of collaborators expands to include veteran singer-songwriter , who's been rattling around near the margins of pop and folk music in the 25 years since the double-platinum success of her debut album, Shooting Rubberbands At The Stars. In that time, Brickell ... has shed some of the lilt that marked her early vocals. But she's acquired and honed a sort of plainspoken warmth that pairs wonderfully with Martin's clean, subtly playful five-string picking."
