fripodding and slacking: albums i’m waiting for this year


This has nothing to do with music

Shame on me… I’ve had a rough and busy week. But no worries Indoobians, I’m working hard on a few other things here and there. Birthdays, fireworks, going-away parties and national holidays. All these events within close proximity to one another and I wonder how celebrities do it. One thing is for sure, they seem to be having fun. I intend to do the same while I make my rounds to these galas I get invited to. Whether I’m the life of the party or I just make a brief appearance, “poke my head in the door: as my dad says (which never works because people recognize him and call him out).

Anyway, since I haven’t had time to properly write up anything special or specific, I thought now would be a good time to tell you the albums I’m looking forward to buying this year.

As I tell lots of people, I rarely listen to the radio. The information I get regarding new music or who to listen to, I learn from word of mouth… or word of the Internets. It’s times like this I rely on friends and reviews from sources like MTV and Entertainment Weekly. I’m picky about who I spend my money on, so I will happily check out the previews on Amazon and iTunes, ask Twitter and Facebook, then make my final judgement which may result in a purchase. I have a few exceptions, whom I call “trusted artists.” This means I would buy their album the day it came out without having to had listened to a single track, and more than likely enjoy most of it. John Legend, Joss Stone, Alicia Keys and Outkast to name a few.

Fortunately, some of those artists are on the list for this year. These are the albums I’m waiting for. (Release dates and titles are subject to change.)

  • Big Boi Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty July 6th
  • Prince 20Ten July 10th
  • Maroon 5 Hand All Over September 21st
  • Kanye West Good Ass Job September
  • John Legend Wake Up Sessions September
  • Common The Believer December
  • Andre 3000 [title TBA]
  • Outkast [title TBA]

More titles may be added. But there are hundreds of titles that can be listed. Plus a select few that have already been released, like The Roots How I Got Over. But to check on that list of future release, check the Metacritic.

Happy Fourth of July. Happy Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, etc. too.

  1. Happy 5th to you!
    I used to love that fine meal you have pictured there… but alas, deep fried gluten & non-organic dairy is cut from the healthy foods list! 😉
