The debut album from Justin Vernon's new band, The Shouting Matches, is streaming online now.

Grownass Man, the first LP from the trio fronted by the Bon Iver man, is a departure from much of his previous work, showcasing a raw, blues-rock style.

The Shouting Matches also feature Phil Cook – who played with Vernon in the band DeYarmond Edison, and now performs as part of Megafaun – and Brian Moen, part of the duo Peter Wolf Crier.

Grownass Man is available to listen to on NPR Music's site.
