2014 Albums to Look Forward To

2014 Albums to Look Forward To

We’ve seen some exciting releases in 2013, both old school bands revamping their style (Daft Punk, My Bloody Valentine and Superchunk!) and brand new sounds that are making waves on the music scene (Blood Orange, Atoms for Peace). It was a big year in music but 2014 promises to be just as exciting. Here are some big albums to watch out for in the next few months that will help continue to evolve the music scene as we know it.

Aracde Fire: Her OST

You may have already heard song or two, or the full album leaked out on the internet. But this NEW new album is debuting in 2014 so it deserves to be at the top of this list. One of the most accomplished and versatile bands of the past decade, critics are hailing their last album, Reflektor, as the best yet. Her OST is the original soundtrack for a new Spike Jonze film called Her. It’s not expected to make as big of a splash as Reflektor, but fans of the band will be stoked to hear more coming from them – they are the type of band who can’t seem to do anything wrong.

Beck: TBA

Beck has been busy traveling and touring on the acoustic circuit. He’s had a new album in the works for some time, an acoustic album that came after he worked on Beck Hansen’s Song Reader. After the beautiful acoustic work he did on Sea Change, it’s safe to assume there’s going to be a lot of gorgeous melancholy on this new record, which he’s been in the process of writing for years.

Dum Dum Girls: Too True

This album was inspired by the frontwoman’s love of literature and poets like Charles Baudelaire, Patti Smith, Lou Reed and Sylvia Plath. The girls have a track on the record called Rimbaud Eyes, a shout out to one of their favorite French poets.

Mogwai: Rave Tapes

Recently having emerged from a stint as music scorers for cult TV show Les Revenants, Rave Tapes is the bands newest album, due out on January 20th. Expect to hear some new and innovative stuff from this seminal band.


Broken Bells: After The Disco

This band released their first single two years ago, to massive critical acclaim. This new album, After the Disco, promises to offer some wonderfully trippy space rock that has become their signature sound along with some new surprises.

  1. The Dum Dum Girls “Too True” album seems to be very different to what you may hear on the local radio and these girls make great music. I just listened their “Too True to Be Good” track and it’s gold, would have to download this whole album.
