Here are some albums who have been slated to release in 2010 that I am super excited for. If their album cover isn’t cool enough, the songs on Merriweather Post Pavillion are really good as well. The boys from Animal Collective are up to it again, and their new album Campfire Songs is set to be released on Jan 26.
You probably recognize these two from their collaboration with Jenny Lewis on Rabbit Fur Coat, but they are now releasing a solo album. The Watson Twins have Talking to You, Talking to Me set to release on February 9. I loved them on Rabbit Fur Coat so I am kind of excited to see what they do on their solo album. We all know the high amount of love that I have for Zooey well the love I have for her music is equal to that. Volume One is fantastic and Volume Two is to be released on March 23.
The follow up to Oracular Spectacular by MGMT called Congratulations does not have a set date for release but they have announced that it will be released sometime in 2010. I love MGMT. I don’t talk about them on here a lot but I really love their music. Its really good to get me pumped up. Also, Time to Pretend is currently my ringtone. I loove it.
I can hardly contain myself. There is no album name, no release date, but I do know that there will be a new Arcade Fire released sometime this year. This is the album I have been waiting for. Funeral is definitely in my top 3 albums of all time, Neon Bible is fantastic and I am expecting no less from this album.
Some other albums that I am looking forward to this year are:
Broken Bells – a collaboration between James Mercer (of the Shins) and Danger Mouse. I looove The Shins so I’m super excited about this. There is one song on their MySpace page (the link above) that I quite like so I’m pretty stoked to see what the rest of the album is like. Broken Bells to be released on March 9.
Fleet Foxes – There is no date set, or title released but it is rumoured that there will be a new album released in 2010. Fleet Foxes were one of my fave artists in 2009 so obviously I’m excited to hear the new album.
The New Pornographers – Interesting name, but their music is pretty good. I’d be interested to see what the new album is like. No title or release date announced.
The Cold War Kids – I loooove their sound and they have a new album released yesterday (as I am writing this it is not yet released just fyi. so I am still anticipating it lol.) Behave Yourself released Tuesday January 19.
Jonsi Birgisson – Probably best known for being a part of the Icelandic band Sigur Ros (looooove) is releasing a solo album called Go on March 23. I checked out his MySpace page and the snippets there sound amazing.
PS I Love You!!
Aaand just for you, a little playlist with some of my favourite songs by these artists
