2017 was a great year for music, lots of good albums released , and from the early looks of it, 2018 should be another good year with some big albums dropping and hopefully a few surprises . Some notable album releases to look for : New Vampire Weekend. Their first album without Rostam, who some say is the straw that stirs the vampire weekends drink. Still think he'll be on the album, but in a collabortive role. Think it's due out in March. Other albums to look forward to: Jack White, Charlie xcx, my bloody valentine, Interpol , arctic monkeys, MGMT, Chvrches, Selena Gomez, Spiritualized, the shins, tuneyards , no age, belle & Sebastian, a perfect circle, chromatics, Kanye west, my morning jacket, modest mouse, and TOOL. Hoping for a new Sufjan Stevens album, but that might be wishful thinking . Any other albums coming out this year you're looking forward to?
