Random Top 5: Albums To Look Forward To in 2012
It's a tall order to match the music year we had in 2011. But they sure as hell are gonna try! Here are five discs I'm psyched for in 2012:
Franz Ferdinand "TBA" (OUT TBD 2012) - Read about how they are experimenting with antique Soviet-era synthesizers and their excitement about the process HERE.
Guided By Voices - "Class Clown Spots A UFO" (OUT MAY) - You keep feeding them beers, they'll keep making amazing low-fi indie pop. The only difference is that they all either have white or gray hair. Read more HERE.
Soundgarden "TBA" - (OUT TBD 2012) - After seeing a stellar performace in Uncasville, CT, I can safely say that these Board Members of Grunge still have it. They seek to make something Badmotorfingery. Read more HERE.
Kaiser Chiefs "Start The Revolution Without Me" (OUT 3/6/12) - Dude, seriously - it's been way too long. Hurry up and release this already. Read more HERE.
Band Of Skulls "Sweet Sour" (OUT 2/21/12) - We've been teased with the title track on FNX for months now much like we were "Pumped Up Kicks" around this time last year. These stoner rockers have something special to reveal. Read more HERE.
