NY-based dreamy indie-pop band School of Seven Bells began streaming its new album, Disconnect from Desire, today on both the band's site and over at Rolling Stone nearly two weeks before its set to drop on July 13.

The trio, which features soothing vocals from identical twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza and ex-Secret Machines member Benjamin Curtis on guitars and production, released its debut, Alpinisms, in 2008.

The new album is chock-full of plenty of danceable beats, synth hooks, layers of sound and general spaciness, very much in the shoegaze vein.

You can also check out an exclusive interview with the band on their YouTube channel.

The band is set to hit the road in support of the new album on September 9.
