2013 is even more interesting now.

Christopher Owens (main guy behind Girls) has a solo album coming out in very early 2013.

Lots of other stuff to expect from Yo La Tengo, Toro y Moi, Black Sabbath, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine (apparently). Mercury Records have said that Metallica, U2, and Arcade Fire will also be releasing new albums.

The prolific Bradford Cox will likely put out another Atlas Sound or Deerhunter album, and hopefully Modest Mouse will do something too. My Bloody Valentine have a number of tour dates for 2013, so hopefully their new stuff will be released too. Broken Bells apparently have some stuff lined up. MF DOOM and Madlib should have Madvillain's sequel ready soon, too.

Looking ahead already.

haha does black sabbath still make albums? to be honest about 2/3 of that list doesn't interest me, unless metallica teams up with bob seger or something and makes something fantastically bad again.

oh my I didn't know My Bloody Valentine was touring again! Kind of lukewarm to most of the rest, NIN, PJ, Soundgarden, so forth. I know enough that I'm old without having bands from my teen years dropping new albums. Yo La Tengo, Brad Cox and Chris Owens is really exciting though.

Also, kind of curious what Arcade Fire will do. Their work is getting worse, and the reviews are getting better, so I assume this album will be just terrible/sell ALL of the copies.

And here I thought 2012 would give us a new Queens of the Stone Age album. Silly me. I mean, it's only been FIVE years!

As far as 2013 goes, new Arcade Fire and new Rage is always boner worthy.

Speaking of old bands, Depeche Mode is also releasing a new album and doing a proper tour. Not sure I'm a fan of their work though. A few good songs, but not my thing.

And there's also Foals, Eminem, Black Keys, Lady Gaga, and a billion other acts you'll hear on commercials too. Usually 'indie' stuff isn't announced until a month or two before its release, so it's hard to project how good it'll be.

heres what ive been lsitening to lately:

Metric - Synthetica : excellent album, almost as good as Fantasies. Great live band too, but im going to miss their upcoming show.

Van Morrison - No Plan B: Born to Sing : Very good album as well. Hes really aged well. Its no 'Back on Top' or 'Astral Weeks' but its warm and jazzy and everything i like about him

Bob Dylan - Tempest : Very strong album. Strong songwriting, melodies, lyrics, what weve gotten from him since Time Out of Mind. Too bad his live show sucks, i went to the recent show, and he had no fan rapport, and played 10 sloppy songs that i didnt recognize in a row (and i know the new albums!)

Mystery Machine - Western Magnetics : Anyone one remember this local Canadian band? they got a bit of airplay in the 90's. Well they are playing together again. Album starts off strong, but after about the 4 track becomes forgettable. If youre not familiar with them i would get thieir first album 'Glazed', killer album of melodic thrash rock.

A.C. Newman - Shut down the streets : Meh, the stuff he writes for the New Pornographers is much better.

Swans - The Seer : I admire their epic intentions with this album, but not really my thing, kinda creepy stuff actually.

Soulsavers - the light the dead see : I was recommedned them on another board bc im such a fanboy of Mark Lanegan (and he contributes a couple tracks to this). Features Depeche Modes Dave Gahan singing. Not a memorable album unfortunately.

Royal Thunder - CVI : Black sabbath like heavy metal but with female vocals. I like it, and the instumentation rocks out.

MBV tour is only announced for Japan, I think, nowhere else. But maybe it'll lead to more.

I wouldn't say Arcade Fire is getting worse, myself. You thought Neon Bible is better than The Suburbs? Sure, they'll never top the artsy, pure aspects of their debut, but The Suburbs was their most enjoyable album for me. But then again, even my mom loved The Suburbs, so you know something's up then. I played Funeral out so hard when it first came out, I can't even listen to it anymore

and Yo La Tengo is probably older than Soundgarden, PJ, NIN, etc. The only difference is YLT is consistent and actually good. Although lots would say PJ is still good, I dunno, haven't heard anything from them in a while.

NIN Is always embarrassing though. Hearing Reznor whine like he's 24 still. Yuck. I hate that super angsty stuff.
