We found this listing of most anticipated 2015 albums from Stereogum, and while there aren’t any Dayton area bands on this list, we thought that it was an interesting collection of artists, large and small. There’s a good number of these that we’ll be trying to look for and check out through the year! Who will you be looking for?
“Here, we’ve listed 101 albums that we’re looking forward to hearing and processing and tearing apart. Some of these are albums with definite release dates and singles out in the world, and some of them are ghosts, albums whose existence has only been hinted at. If we know a band has been hard at work in the studio, then we figure there’s a good chance they’ll have something for us in 2015. This doesn’t always work out. Last year’s most-anticipated album, the opus that Kanye West promised last summer, still hasn’t come out. (Seth Rogen says the new songs are amazing, though.)
Uncertainty aside, none of the albums on this list are blind guesses. As much as we’d love to hear a new Japandroids album, for instance, we haven’t heard any rumblings from them, and that’s why you won’t find them on this list. Joanna Newsom or Bat For Lashes or HAIM or Wilco or Tame Impala could drop a new LP, too, but we we weren’t confident about those either, so we didn’t include them.
We also limited ourselves to albums that we’re excited to hear. We are well aware that U2 are planning to give us the big Songs Of Innocence sequel, Songs Of Experience, soon. We also know that Madonna’s got Rebel Heart coming, and we’ve heard half of it. Neither one made the cut.
And there are dozens and dozens of announced albums we are curious about but just couldn’t find space for. Sorry, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
