Mew album coverJust wow. So the new Mew album will be called No More Stories are Told Today I’m Sorry They Washed Away No More Stories the World is Grey I’m Tired Let’s Wash Away. That has to be some kind of record for longest album title ever. I think I may be more excited for this than any other album being released this year (maybe even more so than for the new Regina Spektor and Imogen Heap albums…) Only two more months.

Now that 2008 is gone for good it is time to get excited about the new year. I know many people who have said that 2008 wasn’t a good year for music. To these people I say you are crazy. 2008 for me was an incredible year for music. But that is all behind us. We can now look ahead to what is to come.

Thanks to Pitchfork who has compiled a list of albums being released this winter, we now have a better idea of what is to come. And while I haven’t heard of many of the artists or bands on the list there were many that I did know. Here are just a few of the upcoming albums that I am dying to hear:
