I end up treating this really differently depending on the band in question. After seeing all the new songs on The National thread I realised I had no interest in hearing them, just wanted to wait for the album and appreciate it all in context and with proper focus. Whereas with LCD Soundsystem, I’ll listen to all the songs without a thought about the album
Maybe it’s favourite bands vs. bands you just quite like, or maybe it’s singles bands vs. album bands. Just funny that for some I can’t wait for every new teaser and song I can get my hands on, and with others I’ll stay as far away as possible.
