So as most of you know I am a huge music nerd. A few weeks ago I listed my favorite albums of last year and now I am populating my list for this year. I have no idea what will be on it but I do have a list of albums that are coming out that I am absolutely excited about.
1. Bon Iver - Blood Bank EP - I already have this one and it is fantastic. I know I just said that I do not know what will be on my end of year list but this one will probably be there.
2. U2 - No Line On The Horizon (3/2/09) - I have only heard the first single which is pretty good (not their best) but if U2 sticks to their tradition of releasing the worst song on the album as the lead single then it should be a good album.
3. MxPx - On The Cover II (3/23/09) - This is my favorite band releasing a second covers album. The album us a 80's theme, but that is misleading. The songs they are covering from the 80's are by bands such as The Ramones, The Clash, U2, Queen, The Dead Milkmen, The Blue Hearts, and The Descendents. This album is going to be awesome.
4. The Decemberists - Hazards of Love (3/23/09) - I love this band. March 23rd will be a great day for me.
These four albums are at the top of my list right now, although there is suppossed to be a new Switchfoot album out as well as rumored new music from Eisley, She & Him, and Brand New.
Anyway, on Tuesday I will try to write about how awesome the Jimmy Eat World Clarity x 10 Tour is.
