I’ve been poking around the internet to see what we can expect in 2018 and from the looks of things below, we’re in for a great year of music.
We’ve already gotten a solid preview of new albums from Ty Segall, Tune-Yards, Brandi Carlile, Franz Ferdinand, Cut Chemist, and First Aid Kit. We’ve also heard some mouthwatering rumors that we can only hope come true (I’m looking at you Jack White and Vampire Weekend)!
There are also lots of newer artists we’ve been exploring that will likely be releasing their debut full lengths: Nilufer Yanya, Tom Misch, and Amber Mark, among them.
Thanks for being there with us on this sonic journey. See you next year for another round!
