Spring hasn't really sprung until you've listened to the new album by Nickel Creek. A Dotted Line will be released to the public on April 1, 2014 - but NPR Music's got the entire album for you through First Listen. I've been streaming it all morning, and I'm smitten. We'll be offering Nickel Creek's A Dotted Line as a thank you gift during KUER's Spring Fund Drive, starting next Friday (April 4). And the band will be featured on A Prairie Home Companion on April 5 - you'll find all the details here.
