After the New Year, it seems there's not much to look forward to after the myriad of parties in December. There's cold weather and the next holiday- Valentine's Day? But, don't forget with a new year also comes-- new albums!
Rumor has it that we'll be getting new albums from Bloc Party, Arcade Fire, Of Montreal, Modest Mouse, Air, Radiohead, Cat Power, Wilco, Patty Griffin, and yes! The Postal Service.
My fingers will constantly be crossed in hopes that these albums are as good as their predecessors.
In no particular order...

I know- not many surprises here. If you look in my album library, you'll find many of these artists previous albums or collaborations. But, I did find some new gems that I really love.
Here's to 2007-Hoping my ears are pleasantly surprised!
