Polica are a week away from releasing their new album United Crushers via Mom + Pop (on 3/4), and now they're streaming it in full. If you liked the band's first two records, you're gonna like this one too. It's basically the kind of offbeat pop that we expect from Polica, but with some new ground explored. Check it out below (via NPR).

Polica just played an intimate pre-release show at Rough Trade NYC last week (pictures), and their tour brings them to Austin for at least five SXSW shows, including three listed on the official schedule; the StubHub show with Miike Snow and Baio; and the Onion/AV Club show with Beach Slang, Into It. Over It., Car Seat Headrest, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, and more.
