Tool (Finally) Joins Streaming Services

· Kelly Guimont · Cool Stuff Found

Rock band Tool is making news on several fronts this week. After announcing a new album (their first since 2006), titled Fear Inoculum and out August 30, they also announced their entire back catalog will be available on digital streaming services as of Friday, August 2nd. Until August 1, the only way to get your hands on their four previous albums is CD and vinyl, though I seem to remember having at least Undertow on cassette at one point. Frontman Maynard James Keenan was on Joe Rogan’s podcast where he talked about the new album and the decision to join streaming services. You can watch the full interview below, but know that every possible warning about NSFW content should be applied.

Scout FM is a podcast radio service that streams a curated selection of podcasts and radio shows. Today the service is getting new features, including compatibility with Apple’s CarPlay. A cool new feature is called Commute Mode, which automatically finds shows for you that fit your commute time. Scout FM is a bit different than other podcast apps. You don’t subscribe and download podcasts. Instead it’s more similar to a traditional radio station. There are stations focused around categories like Daily News, Brain Food, and True Stories.

A new cartoon streaming service is coming this spring. It’s called Boomerang, and it will feature thousands of classic old cartoons like The Jetsons, The Flintstones, Smurfs, Scooby Doo and Tom & Jerry. It’s part of the Boomerang TV network, but this cartoon service will be separate from the network. At launch, Boomerang will be available for iOS, Android and the web, with more devices and platforms soon to follow. You can stream cartoons ad-free for US$4.99/month, or US$39.99/year, with a seven-day free trial. Boomerang will only be available in the U.S., and there’s no word on whether it will expand to other countries.
