Stereogum just released their list of the “50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2013,” a nice preview for the coming year. And like them; I’m most excited for My Bloody Valentine’s new record, 22 years in the making. No word on when that currently untitled album comes out as of yet, but it’s been done for about a week now. PSYCHED.
Other stuff that makes my own personal highlight reel: Arcade Fire/James Murphy collabo, Atoms For Peace FINALLY releasing a proper album, Cloud Nothings, The Knife, a hopefully less electro Yeah Yeah Yeahs record, Iceage, Deerhunter, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Low, Ducktails, Kurt Vile, Doldrums and Beach Fossils.
Absent from the list are new records from the likes of The Men, Future Islands (is this actually happening?) Total Slacker, Widowspeak and Weekend; all which would have easily trumped a ton of other upcoming LPs on my own personal list.
Feel free to add your own below…
