Devo hosts a record-listening party for cats

Q: Are we not cats?

A: We are Devo listeners!

The always-interesting New Wave band Devo ("Whip It") is promoting its new album, "Something for Everybody," out Tuesday, with a "Live Cat Listening Party."

That's exactly what it sounds like: A live-streaming video depicts about 20 cats wandering around while the album plays, ostensibly listening to it (but, we suspect from a few minutes' worth of watching it, not paying too much attention).

Ohio-based Devo's latest album represents something of a comeback for the band, which opted to turn to fans to choose the track listing. It streamed 30-second clips of songs online and let listeners decide which 12 tracks would ultimately wind up on "Something for Everybody."
