So what are people looking forward to?
Alex G (re-issues)
Calexico (kind of, I'll give it a listen)
Róisín Murphy (didn't actually like her last album but interested to hear this anyway)
Haven't heard of 90% of the artists though so hopefully some good new things to discover.
Otherwise: Young Fathers, Passion Pit, Blur, Mew, My Morning Jacket, Django Django, Mikal Cronin, The Tallest Man on Earth, Hot Chip, Sun Kil Moon
Sun Kil Moon
From that list. But also
And a few others
Wire (heard it already - absolutely brilliant)
Also intrigued by mention of an Agaetis Byrjun reissue and what that might entail.
beyond excited about this
(some others too probably)
Ekoplekz, Raekwon, Kelela, Chance, Kanye, Blur, Migos, Girl Band, Holly Herndon, Galcher Lustwerk, Pete Rock, HudMo (despite the godawful single)...
Relatively low hype levels overall, but a lot of records are dropped with little notice these days.
Sun Kil Moon
Tape Loop Orchestra
Built To Spill
Faith no more should be a good listen. Patton is like no other.
Roisin murphy 2007 album was fantastic I hope this one is a decent follow up.
Blur. They can't really make a bad album
RP Boo, Built to Spill, Speedy Ortiz, Westkust, Blur, Raekwon, Kelela, Mikal Cronin, Juan Wauters, Prurient, Thee Oh Sees, Holly Herndon, Hot Chip, Shamir, Joanna Gruesome, Hudson Mohawke, Migos, Chromatics, Dipset, Glass Candy (like that'll come out any time soon), GZA, Kanye, Miguel, Rihanna, Tame Impala, Wavves/Cloud Nothings... fuck.
Holly Herndon (surprised and delighted by the love for her on here)
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
The Holydrug Couple
Death and Vanilla
Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Valet - Nature (may 25th)
Honey Owens of Jackie O Motherfucker, Nudge, etc. sounds a lot less weird than previous albums under this moniker.
The follow up to the amazing Comfort Songs which was put out on Audio Antihero.
The single sounds amazing
looking forward to new active child and BTS too
