From Merge:

M. Ward’s free mobile app is now available in the iTunes store. The app allows users the ability to listen live to hundreds of public radio stations across the United States. Searchable alphabetically by state and by map, the M. Ward app allows users to locate nearly 1,000 of Matt’s favorite independent and public radio stations across the country. Wherever you’re traveling in the US, the M. Ward mobile app will locate the nearest quality radio station to keep you company.

A long-rumored Luddite renowned for recording his albums onto analog tape, M. Ward’s love of radio is well documented. His 2005 albumTransistor Radio was a collection of songs inspired by “memories of a utopian radio power,” which he dedicated to “the last of the remaining independent radio stations.” Touring the US over the past few years, Ward often found it a challenge to find a great local radio station to accompany him. In creating this app—which also streams M. Ward music and provides up-to-the-minute touring information and social networking content—Ward has created the perfect traveling companion for radio connoisseurs everywhere.

The free M. Ward mobile app is available now in the iTunes store

M. Ward and his formidable band are taking to the road in August for a run of dates. His latest release, A Wasteland Companion, is available on CD, LP, and digital download in the Merge store.
