It looks like Heart in Space was too excited to get their new sounds into the hands of its fans. In preparation for its official release on November 11 at the Larimer Lounge, the dreamy-space-rock band has made the disc available digitally for streaming or a six-dollar download.
The eight-track record doesn't mark much of a sonic departure from what we've come to expect from Hearts in Space, which in no way is a bad thing. The four-piece has been sprinkling psychedelic rock into its fuzzed out rock since its inception, and its no different here.
Certain tracks do stand more than others, "Your On Fire," for instance, takes its rocking out seriously, drifting through a high-pitched sing-song before breaking down into fired up guitar licks. None of this comes at the cost of the bands southwestern influences though, the album's title track, "Already Gone," is quiet content to drift across the Colorado border and head down south for a dip into American before distorting everything back out in a wall of sound.

We're excited to see what the band does for the release, since all we know right now is that you'll be able to snag a t-shirt with your pre-purchase of the record. For now, we'll be content with the digital copy, which happens to be a perfect soundtrack for cloudy mornings.
