I find that come the end of the year the blogosphere is flooded with “Best of” lists, which are great if you’re in a nostalgic mood and all.. Unfortunately thats not how I feel about 2009, it’s been a less than favorable year for me. So in the spirit of great expectations we have the albums/artists I am looking forward to in 2010. Most of these artists I’ve talked about in the last couple weeks, but a recap can’t hurt. Be sure to check out BBC’s Sound of 2010 for more great artists on the rise.

So here we have it, in no particular order:

Fyfe Dangerfield

Guillemots lead, Fyfe Dangerfield is scheduled to come out with his debut album Fly Yellow Moon in January 2010. After hearing ‘When You Walk Into The Room‘ and ‘She Needs Me‘, I expect nothing short of amazing.

Penguin Prison

New York native Chris Glover a.k.a. Penguin Prison has provided us with 2 lead tracks and some killer remixes. No confirmation yet of whether or not there will be a full length album, but I suspect that there is something in the works. If not Penguin Prison is some music you’re going to want to keep your eyes on this coming year, only more to come.


There is still little known about UK due Monarchy, but we can expect the single release come February from our favourite Neon Gold. There is no doubt that this pair has more work up their sleeves, we’re just going to have to be patient and wait to hear more.

Ellie Goulding

Ellie released her EP earlier this year which give us a small sample of what she’s capable of. I predict that in 2010 we’re going to hear a full length LP from her. With the backings of producers Starsmith, I am sure this pop starlet will give us something worth looking forward to.

Vampire Weekend

I may have a soft spot for Vampire Weekend after seeing them in concert back in August ’08 at the amazing Pemberton festival. Either way, after the release of their singles Cousins & Horchata, it’s clear that ‘Contra’ will be a great follow up to their debut album.


After great commercial success with ‘Oracular Spectacular’ back in ’08, MGMT is set to release a new LP ‘Congratulations’ in the spring of 2010. It will be interesting to see how VanWyngarden and Goldwasser follow up to their debut album.

Arcade Fire

Fellow Canadians, Arcade Fire have done well with there previous albums ‘Neon Bible’ and ‘Funeral’ and are expected to release a new album early 2010. Working with producers from Neon Bible, there is no doubt that this next LP will live up to their past releases.

The Limousines

With the release of their EP ‘The Scrapbook’, The Limousines are leaving much to be desired. There is no news on whether or not the duo is working on a full length LP for the new year, but it can be expected to hear some new sounds coming from this California pair.


‘Odd Blood’, Yeasayer‘s sophomore album is due out February 09, 2010. The album has already been leaked out just a few days ago, but I, myself am resisting the urge to download the album. With another 2 months to go I am sure that Yeasayer is going to be working hard to perfect the album.

Marina & The Diamonds

Her videos alone get my excited for her debut album “The Family Jewels”. After a great release of Marina Diamandis 2nd EP with Neon Gold earlier this year, you can be sure to hear some great tunes from this vixen.

Sleigh Bells

When I first heard Sleigh Bells EP, I was completely floored. I can only hope that they reproduce that sound into a new and full length LP for our enjoyment. I am making the assumption that there will be more to hear from this Brooklyn duo, but it’s more so a wish..

Stick up for yourself

Yeasayer has just released its video for one of my top played tracks of late “Ambling Alp“. It’s pretty fantastic, both song and video. Also check out their website for a free mp3 of the song. Enjoy.

“Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel” – thats is what Anand Wilder, Chris Keating, Luke Fasano, and Ira Wolf Tuton use to describe their music as. Now I have no idea what the fuck that means but I have to give them props for creativity, not like their music lacks that at all. The band toured last spring with MGMT, another fantastic bandsthat if you have not heard of yet you also need to check out. I have to admit their new single took awhile to grow on me. The first time I played it I actually turned it off 30 seconds in, I think it was the strange tin can noise that starts the song off. Anyway, the track really builds and definitely leaves you wanting more. Give the song a full listen and check out this up and coming band.

Here is their new single Ambling Alp from their upcoming sophomore album Odd Blood
