10 Albums Coming Out Next Year That I'm Already Digging
Beach House Devotion (Carpark)
More gorgeous, atmospheric and dreamy pop from this Baltimore duo.
Evangelicals The Evening Descends (Dead Oceans)
These hyperactive weirdos from Oklahoma make their neighbors in the Flaming Lips seem normal.
The Helio Sequence Keep Your Eyes Ahead (Sub Pop)
This Oregon twosome won't have to worry about those shoegaze comparisons anymore; this is practically a pop album.
Marah Angels Of Destruction! (Yep Roc)
Marriage, sobriety and new members thankfully haven't changed these rough-and-tumble Philly rockers at all.
Eric Matthews The Imagination Stage (Empyrean)
The former Cardinal member decided to add some synths and loops to his orchestral pop, and the result is beautiful.
Bob Mould District Line (Anti-)
He'll obviously never top the glory days of Hüsker Dü or the first Sugar album, but this is almost a return to form.
Nada Surf Lucky (Barsuk)
The best album yet from these NYC pop-rockers.
Photon Band Back Down To Earth (Empyrean/Transit Of Venus)
These guys have long been been one of the top bands in Philly, and their first album in four years doesn't disappoint.
The Raveonettes Lust Lust Lust (Vice)
The fourth LP from this Danish duo is more mellow, minimalist and mature then their previous work.
Sons & Daughters This Gift (Domino)
Album number three finds these Glaswegians adding a pretty pop sheen to their country/rockabilly/Americana mix.
