Radiohead – title and date tba
Well, there have been long-running rumors that they're confirmed to headline Coachella, so we assume that means an album is also on the way. Go on, start thinking of what you have to offer on Craigslist for tickets.
Sharon Van Etten – Tramp, February 7
Judging from the album’s single, “Serpents,” Van Etten has infused her scarce, emotional folk—the sonic equivalent of an open wound—with some gusto. Using her pockets of time recording in Aaron Dessner’s garage as the one constant during a nomadic 14 months of touring, “gusto” was bound to work its way in. Somewhere along the way, she picked up Thomas Bartlett, Zach Condon, Jenn Wasner, Julianna Barwick and The Walkmen’s Matt Barrick to contribute.
The Shins – Port of Morrow, March
Last week my mom asked me if The Shins are going to have a new record out soon.
Sleigh Bells – Reign of Terror, February
It will probably be noisy. Maybe there will be an overly dramatic trailer for it. Maybe there will even be a song called "True Shred Guitar" and another called "Road to Hell."
Titus Andronicus – title and date, tba
If you follow Titus frontman Patrick Stickles on Twitter, then perhaps you've caught him hinting at what's in store for LP3, or perhaps the album-related news bites have gotten lost in the sea of his every thought. In that case: They'll be back upstate at Marcata Studios recording under the watchful eye of producer Kevin McMahon, they've already had one "non-traditional" (in the context of indie rock) musician sign on, and Stickles asked if anyone has Colin Stetson's e-mail address.
