I hope for:

R.E.M.

The Breeders

Portishead

Arctic Monkeys (maybe)

anything else? :)

Portishead just leaked, I haven't heard it yet though.

I'm looking forward to new releases from The Thermals, Del The Funkee Homosapien, and Madvillain.

Some good ones that have already come out are MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Black Mountain, and Beach House.

Stephen Malkmus album has come out already, and I am already ready to declare it my fave album of '08.

Real Emotional Trash is a milestone in rock'n'roll, SM keeps his crazy poetry and indie voice, all accompanied by the greatest guitar work of the last 20+ years.

For anyone who hasn't figured it out yet, Malkmus is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, since his start in pavement, he is one of the only players since the injection of the electric guitar in rock'n'roll to use dynamics... and use them well.

With his solos, he takes you in and out of key, but never out of the song, and uses this tension to launch you into a completely different direction- see, "Real Emotional Trash' it , as a ballad-y slow jazz guitar work, goes to a expositional section, which seemlessly takes you to a full on freak out, with screamed crazy lyrics and uptempo kick-assness.

-Anyway the album rocks, and I get to see malkmus in... five days.

Hmmm... what am I looking forward to... new R.E.M. supernatural superserious fuels my hope that they have actually remembered how to rock, I have a feeling that Mike Stipe has given back some creative control to Peter Buck (he was always my fave member...)

Other than that, it is too early to say what's lookin' good

But Real Emotional Trash satisfies all my needs for the entire year.

I'm waiting for any word on the next Pearl Jam album. I don't even know if they have started writing anything for it yet. Also looking forward to Funplex from The B-52's... and apparently Portishead has a new album I wanna hear.

I think the Thermals next album might be a mainstream breakthrough. They said their lyrics are going to be less political, and I always thought that "Pillar of Salt" would have had massive radio play if it wasn't for the lyrics.
