I was thinking last night...wow, there is alot of music coming out soon that I'm goign to be interested in. Seems like every 12-16 months there is a flurry of releases of bands that I like.

Off the top of my head, I know of the following bands who have upcoming releases I'm anxiously awaiting:

Travis
Crowded House
Rush
Manic Street Preachers
Massive Attack
Interpol

...new Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead coming later in the year as well.

In addition to new albums by the Shins, Modest Mouse, and Arcade Fire, it's a good time to be a music fan (at least, one with my tastes.) Anyone else have any new albums they're anxiously awaiting?
