We could make approximately one million jokes about how Neil Young made a concept album about electric cars and the economy, or about how the long-delayed Neil Young Archives are finally coming out after all these years. But dudes, the archives are coming out after all these years! That news overshadowed any prospect of actual new Neil Young music in the FADER office so much that when the announcement that Fork in the Road was streaming in its entirety on Young’s MySpace landed in our inboxes, we were pretty shocked. It’s by no means close to his best work, but it’s a Neil Young record. About the state of the world. With really fuzzy guitars. And you can listen to it for free. If you’re not feeling it, that’s cool, just pretend this is actually a post about how hard the archives are going to jam.
