Is 2011 going to be a good year for music Watch
I predict another great year in electronic music and another embarrassing year in pop music. Watch out for the output from Hotflush recordings and Hospital records. New albums should be coming from the likes of Sepalcure, London Elektricity and Nu:Tone. I already know that the new Chase & Status album will be a smasher like their debut, too.
I'm really hoping Joy Orbison will release an album this year. Burial hasn't released one for a while, either.
If no other bands release anything thats any good at least those two should tide me over for a LONG time, I must have listened to the last Nathrakh album a hundred times, and I am mega interested in seeing what direction The Gathering will go in next, and whether they will do anything metal again
New Animal Collective and Panda Bear releases are definitely going to make 2011 for me. Even if AC don't release a new album, they'll be touring with new material which is still pretty damn good!
I think Gaga's also set for a new album, I'm not that big of a fan anymore but she always has some great tunes on offer - The Fame Monster was great so I bet this will be even better.
New Adele album and probabl a new Fleet Foxes record to look forward to
It should be alright!
And yes, Fleet Foxes definitely have a new album coming out this year. Robin's more or less conformed that.
Bloc Party, White Stripes, Foo Fighters, Daft Punk, Queens of the Stone Age, Manic Street Preachers, Los Campesinos all have albums due out in the year (with the exception of daft Punk and Bloc Party who may be pushged back to 2012)
Anyways for hip hop it should be good, Kanye releasing another album this year with Jay-Z and J.Cole's much anticipated album is gonna drop and cause a frenzy soon. Also Wiz Kalifah should have a really good year. Cant speak for other Genres though.
The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero, Sylosis, Anterior, Mercenary, EkoTren, Disarmonia Mundi, Jeff Loomis, Machine Head, Anthrax, Becoming The Archetype, Winds Of Plague, Times Of Grace and Circus Maximus are all releasing new material.
Yep it's going to be a good'n.
NME despite some of their faults have brilliant reviews on new and up and coming bands, have a look on there.
However 2011 is bringing a:
New Strokes album
New Arctic Monkeys album
Maybe a new Libertines album or tour
New Foo Fighters
New Limp Bizkit
Pete Doherty tour
So far its looking areet.
More importantly, I'm hoping for news on whatever it is Noel will be getting up to.
Also, I am looking to expand my musical tastes slightly, to less well known music. Whilst that isn't particularly important in terms of releases this year, I hope to find some good music, which will make it good for this year.
Also Bjork will be releasing a new album this year! It's going to be a lot different from her previous albums, but Bjork has always been experimenting, so this doesn't surprise me.
But still...Kate Bush! It would be amazing if it's a new album. Aerial was fantastic and shows she still has it.
I don't like him so I don't listen to him. It's pretty simple really. Justin Bieber doesn't effect how good a year this will be for me in terms of music.
...not that I'm a chart hater or anything :P I'm loving The Vaccines at the moment and I'm really looking forward to Foo Fighters new album. It could be a good year I reckon...
