To say the next couple months in the rock/pop category is an embarrassment of riches is the understatement of the year. The lackluster year that was 2009 is definitely making up for it in the first half of 2010. March 9th we get the new album by Frightened Rabbit, whose album Midnight Organ Fight was one of my favorite albums of 2008. And although I’ve never been a big fan of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, The Brutalist Bricks may be what gets me into them.
March 16 gives us a new album from The Whigs. I’ve enjoyed their last 2 albums, although I liked Give ‘Em All A Big Fat Lip better than Mission Control. There have been mixed reviews on this record. People say it sounds too polished and too much like Kings of Leon (who they toured with last year). I guess we’ll see.
April is a little slow, but May brings us a major mother load. Until then, happy listening.
