Most Anticipated Albums of 2015

Since most of 2015 releases still are "TBA" (some that I'm looking forward to that are still TBA include: Adele, Beach House and -gasp- Gwen Stefani - I'm a sucker for her, it's probably going to be bad though,) I'm going to focus on albums that have a concrete release date because it's possible TBA's will get pushed back to 2016. I learned that the hard way when I listed my #1 for 2013 Turn Blue (see: Stephanie's pick's for 2013) and it ended up coming out in 2014.

Laura Marling Short Movie
Marling's fifth studio album, Short Movie, releases March 24. This is Marling's first record since her highest spot on the billboard chart, Once I Was an Eagle, reaching #3.

 Mark Ronson Uptown Special

I've been listening to "Uptown Funk" (featuring Bruno Mars) and "Feel Right" (featuring Mystikal, of all people!) non-stop lately. Ronson always has a great way of blending music genres together and combining old influences with new. Very excited for this album, coming out January 13.

Of Montreal - Aureate Gloom
Of Montreal is back doing their thing with Aureate Gloom, coming out in March 2015.

 Modest Mouse – Strangers to Ourselves
Modest Mouse is back after SEVEN years of releasing new material. This album comes out in March and all eyes will be on them. I'm hoping for a good album, they've always been a consistently good band but that doesn't mean anything (see: The Shins Port of Morrow).

 Sleater-Kinney – No Cities to Love
Very excited for Sleater-Kinney to come back with new material, as well as a reunion tour (which I will be going to)! The album is out January 20.

Fallout Boy - American Beauty/American Psycho

I might loose some music cred for liking NEW Fallout Boy but I don't care (lol), Save Rock and Roll was actually a really good album. To me, this album validated how the pressure to be "fill in the blank" from the media and record labels can really effect a band. Also, from what I've heard of this album ("Centuries"), it sounds very reminiscent to Rock and Roll. This album comes out January 16.
