Swan Lake offers free MP3s, pre-order album download

In case you somehow missed the flood of new Swan Lake MP3s being offered exclusively at various sites (Pitchfork, Stereogum, last week, here's all three of them available for download right here:

Spanish Gold, 2044 (MP3)
A Hand at Dusk (MP3)
Spider (MP3)

Each song showcases the indie super-group's members (Carey Mercer, Spencer Krug, Daniel Bejar respectively) and their unique contributions to the project. "Spanish Gold" is a noisy, dramatic rock tune, "A Hand at Dusk" is gently swelling, piano-led piece, and "Spider" has a dark, creepy feel to it. The band's new album, Enemy Mine, will be released on March 24, but if you can't wait, you can now pre-order the album via SC Distribution and you will get a download link so you can hear the whole thing immediately!
