Music in 2017


#1

Who are the bands or artists you are waiting for with anxiety?
Do you think someone will disappoint you? Who will produce the album of the year, instead, according to you?

I have great expectations about Grizzly Bear, Broken Social Scene, Japandroids and St Vincent. A bit afraid of Arcade Fire, the xx and Fleet Foxes (two works in one year?) I’m curious about Magnetic Fields’s new big work, Shins and Spiritualized.


Artists That You Hope Will Return in 2017
#2

Looking forward to the new Los Camp! because I really enjoyed their new tracks at Us Vs. Them. Will listen to the new At The Drive-In but I expect it’ll be boring.


#3

Worried that St Vincent will be a let down. Quite hyped about Flaming Lips. Fleet Foxes will be good as well I reckon, he’s had a while to marinate.


#4

Hoping Autechre will release an official live thing of a recent gig.


#5

i don’t get anxious about this sort of thing, just like i don’t get angry at beyoncé and solange being rated highly by pitchfork


#6

Aldous Harding ! Due out in March i think. The new songs she has been playing are amazing. It’s Produced by John Parish as well.


#7

I’m super excited for Grandaddy, and again The Wrens claim a release in the coming year, so if that happens it’ll be pretty huge.

#10

Mogwai have a new LP to mix. Hoping it’ll be a return to form but as the first LP without John I can’t say I’m convinced. Fingers crossed


#11

Has there been any update on the wrens?last I read it was on hold as the lead singer is sadly battling cancer


#12

I’m looking forward to a new Vacant Lots album and hoping for a new Loop ep.


#13

Ed Droste is currently streaming new Grizzly Bear on his instagram


#14

sounding good !


#15

Really looking forward to seeing The Hotelier in January. Hoping Brand New are gonna put something good out before they split. Still holding out hope for the Jim Ward-less ATDI but we’ll see.

Would be nice to see some more of the interesting R&B that’s been released in the past few years


#16

Dare I even mention… Chromatics?


#17

A lot that could potentially be great:
The National, Flaming Lips, Sigur Ros, Spiritualized, Bruce, Jay-Z, Father John Misty.

Of those not mentioned, I also have hopes for the Chills revival: they’ve been playing some unreleased tracks and I reckon they’ve got another album in them, either later this year or next year. And maybe the Mountain Goats? They average an album every 18 months or so, so I guess we might get lucky?

There’s a similar thread to this one over here:


#19

Just remembered: Hookworms
