Here’s an updated version of that list of albums I’m looking forward to. No release dates or anything yet for Pipettes, Jarvis, Handsome Family or McKeown.
- Emmy the Great – 9th Feb (“First Love”)
- Morrissey – 16th Feb (“Years of Refusal”)
- AC Newman – 16th Feb (“Get Guilty”) [Edited, previously showed US release date]
- M Ward – 16th Feb (“Hold Time”)
- Howling Bells – 2nd Mar (“Radio Wars”)
- Neko Case – 3rd Mar [North American release date?] (“Middle Cyclone”)
- Noisettes – 30th Mar (“Wild Young Hearts”)
- Doves – 30th Mar (“Kingdom of Rust”)
- Immaculate Machine – 21st Apr[North American release date], (”High on Jackson Hill”)
- Camera Obscura – 21st April (“My Modelling Career”)
- MJ Hibbett and the Validators – 11th May (“Regardez, Ecoutez et Repetez”)
- Junior Boys – 11th May (“Begone Dull Care”) [24th Mar Canadian release]
From the old version of the list, I have acquired only the Fight Like Apes album, which is a cross between the Chalets and McLusky – unfortunately, like the former band, they promise a bit more than they deliver if you ask me.
