Most anticipated albums of 2012!

I'm a music nerd, so I had a great time working with 15 other KDHX DJs on their lists of most look-forwarded-to releases for the new year.

 

Check out all the picks.

 

Here are 10, with projected release dates, that I'm especially psyched about. What about you?

 

Leonard Cohen, Old Ideas (Columbia) 1/31

His voice is in the gutter but his soul is in the stars -- at least based on the few tracks already circulating.

 

Dr. Dog - Be the Void (Anti-) 2/7

One of the first tracks release from the album, "That Old Black Hole," is a funky, surreal, witty party -- in other words very much in my wheelhouse.

 

Chuck Prophet - Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc) 2/7

Flipped a coin between this and the new Craig Finn album, and Chuck won. Glad both are coming to St. Louis this year.

 

Heartless Bastards – Arrow (Partisan) 2/14

The first single is scorching, and has a pop streak that reminds me of the latest Black Keys album.

 

Jay Farrar, Anders Parker, Yim Yames, Will Johnson - New Multitudes (Rounder) 2/28

"Old LA," the first song out from this "Mermaid Avenue Vol. 3" (but don't call it that, though I just did), is gorgeous and so laid-back it almost purrs.

 

Bonnie Raitt, Slipstream (Redwing) 4/10

This will be Raitt's first album in seven years, with production on some tracks by Joe Henry and, apparently, Dylan covers.

 

Beach House - TBA

Curious to hear if the band can make good on the beautiful promise of "Teen Dream."

 

Cat Power – TBA

I thought Chan and her band were terrific at LouFest, dark and all. If she channels anything close to that sound this will be a keeper.

 

Mazzy Star – TBA

This once seemed as unlikely as a new Wrens album (no comment), but with the release of the first few tracks it's clear that another dream-pop album from Hope and David isn't a dream.

 

Thin Lizzy Reissue Box - TBA

700 songs? Not likely. But it sounds like it's being properly curated so this could be super.

How could I forget that Chimes of Freedom set? Yes, I want to hear that, very much.

Looking forward to the New Multitudes and the Chimes of Freedom box set. Not wild about the Springsteen single, but I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of it.
