Hear a new Dismemberment Plan song the old-fashioned way—on the phone

Back before the Internet happened, if a fella (it was mostly fellas) wanted to hear a new song by his favorite band, he had to see that band live in concert. Later, as technology developed a bit, bands would set up special telephone lines to debut new material. Perhaps in a nod to their storied history in this fast-changing world, The Dismemberment Plan are looking back to those heady days by offering up "Waiting"—from the upcoming Uncanney Valley, due out in October—via a recorded phone message. So if you'd like to hear a new D. Plan song in just slightly better fidelity than the versions that were going around YouTube last year, dial (252) 64-DPLAN. You'll be treated to "Waiting" as your on-hold/only music.
