This is beginning to be my answer for everything but VPN and change the country to UK? It looks like it's available on US Spotify as well if the British server's too slow.

I had to use YouTube, and for at least half the tracks, only a live version was available. This is the track listing

1. How Does It Feel?
2. Fever of the Time
3. Kindergarten
4. The Renegade
5. Greater Times on the Wayside
6. The River by the Garden
7. You Gotta Tell'er
8. I Know
9. Marching Through Your Head
10. The Sound of You
11. Heavy on Me
12. At the Risk of Repeating

I ended up following mileswides' suggestion since I could do with a vpn anyway.

Albums:
Sufjan Stevens - The Age of Adz
David Byrne & Fatboy Slim - Here Lies Love
Actress - Splazsh
The Naked And Famous - Passive Me, Agressive You

I will attempt to do an album vote for next week too but I'm heading back to school next week and will have much less time to listen during the day and will probably prioritise Moderately Acclaimed.

(Teaching from home has been amazing for my music listening, I will say!)

That was the only streaming I could find it on besides half of the tracks being on youtube. And not available in NZ. VPN for the UK worked just as miles suggested though.
