We're in a new year now, and there are certainly a few albums coming up that I'm very excited for:
Ken has written about this already, but Slezak's voice and instrumental prowess means we're going to get something truly great out of this solo effort. Plus, given that I'm always on the lookout for stuff my almost-two-year-old might enjoy, that this is at least in part geared toward the littler set means I have a few reasons to be excited.
"If I Could" is already a frontrunner for song of 2015 for me, so to say I'm really excited about this upcoming album is an understatement. February can't come soon enough, and the fact that the new song alone sounds like an early 1990s throwback while still sounding modern? I think this might be the only thing Ken and I post about in February at this rate.
Other upcoming albums I'm intrigued by:
* Colleen Green – I Want To Grow Up (early songs sound pretty polished, but still quite good)
* Tool – TBA (yes, really)
* Father John Misty – I Love You, Honeybear
* Belle & Sebastian – Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance
* Courtney Barnett - TBA
