Been slacking pretty damn hard this year so far but there's potentially some great stuff around the corner.

Current faves:

Drowse - Cold Air
Dead Meadow - The Nothing They Need

Silent Front - Three
Mount Eerie - Now Only
Biffy Clyro - MTV Unplugged: Live At The Roundhouse


Hype train:
Emma Ruth Rundle - On Dark Horses

Planning For Burial - Quietly (Yeah its not all new material but its the first time  its been on vinyl )

Floating Room - False Baptism (Technically out last Friday but I'm waiting for my record to hop the pond before I listen)
Mamaleek - Out Of Time (Still haven't ordered this yet but I'm excited nonetheless)

Vennart - To Cure a Blizzard Upon a Plastic Sea

Rumour mill:
Twilight Sad (timeline seems to fit)
The Cure (I know this seems as crazy as waiting on a Tool album but Smith did state he's been in the studio in a recent interview)
Martin Grech - Hush Mortal Core (this is finished but has been for 2 years major league longshot)
ZZC (supposedly finished just waiting for Biffy to hit that lull)

Earl Sweatshirt (Theres a tonne of non album tracks n live recordings doing the rounds that are all fantastic but no announcement)

For me:

Hop Along - Bark Your Head Off, Dog

Jeremy Dutcher - Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa (just discovered this - kind of a post-rock/operatic reinterpretation of old cylinders from the 1910s of Wolastoqiyik first nations songs - kind of somewhere between Bon Iver and Sam Amidon)

US Girls - In A Poem Unlimited
