I've been a bit slack this year so far, but planning over the next couple of weeks to pick up the new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds record which I've been hanging for, as well as Arc by Everything Everything, and Jim James' (of My Morning Jacket) solo record "Regions of Light and Sound of God" which is apparently excellent. I'm also keen to pick up the new I Am Kloot record because I've heard it's great and Guy Garvey of Elbow produced it. Oh yeah and need to pick up Atoms for Peace.
The next couple of months will see a new record from Dawes and iconic Aussie band The Drones, both of whom I adore. I'm also hoping for a new Laura Marling record this year.
And yeah, hopefully some new Arcade Fire (and please FFS tour Australia you bastards) and, if they get off their backsides, U2.
