Nice new beastie boys coming? Haven't heard about that...
Arcade fire - neon bible
ya, the new bboys cd is rumored to be out in the summer, and that they will be debuting the new material which will be mostly instrumental, and like a soundtrack to a fictional movie at their only non festival performance in Paris in June... Ill be flying to Paris to attend this gig...
There's been (or, in quite a few cases, will be) some really good releases this year but I'd say my favourite so far is Stars Of The Lid - ...And Their Refinement Of The Decline. Absolutely stunning ambient/drone album. The new Pelican and Smoke Or Fire albums stand out to me as being really good too.
Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos Fu Manchu - We Must Obey Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero Queens of the Stone Age - Era Vulgaris Rush - Snakes and Arrows Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgeist Trouble - Simple Mind Condition
Still-untitled new releases from AC/DC, Aerosmith, ALL/Descendents, Anthrax, Bad Religion, The Cure, Exodus, Foo Fighters, Judas Priest, Metallica, Monster Magnet, Nickelback, The Offspring, Opeth, The Pixies, Primus, Prong, Rancid, Santana and Testament.
I know all those albums are still not out yet, but those bands kick so much ass!
