Record you are most anticipating for 2015

Alan Ranta - Exclaim, Georgia Straight, Vancouver, BC

Tiempe Libre
William Fritch

William Ryan Fritch - Revisionist (Lost Tribe Sound)
I'm quite certain this will be a crowning achievement for the genre-defying experimental neo-classical folktronica composer, setting a new benchmark for his own excellence.

Matt Simmons - Interrobang CICK - Smitthers, BC

Interrobang - Tuesdays 9:30-12 PST
Interrobang After Dark - Wednesdays 9-11pm

Panda Bear? Ought's second?

Glen Ess - CIVL- FM Abbotsford BC

Rhythm & Rhyme - Tuesdays 11am to 12 noon

Another tricky question, I mean 2015 will be seeing a new Duran Duran record, the third record in the Man on The Moon trilogy by Kid Cudi, never mind Fleetwood Mac is back. But I think it’s probably fair to say that I’ll be waiting with baited breath for the new Modest Mouse album, considering that the first single from this, as yet unnamed, album is coming out this December, it shouldn’t be too long a wait. I mean seriously! It’s been eight (8!) years since they released We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank.

Owen Maxwell - CKCU - Ottawa, ON

Theme Songs  - Mondays at 10am

Dead Weather – TBA – Third Man Records
While Sleater-Kinney’s recent announcement has me psyched beyond belief. The Dead Weather’s upcoming LP is what I’ve been craving since 2010s Sea Of Cowards,  an album that became a favourite from first listen and gets constant relistens to this day. If their latest even moderately captures this energy we’re in for something amazing.

Panda Bear

Max Szyc - Ottawa, ON

Faith No More – TBA – (Reclamation/Ipecac)
Faith No More is the gateway band that tore me away from my horrible high school musical tastes, and thus there aren’t enough words or emoticons to express my joy over their reunion album. Considering how much the San Francisco alt rockers changed on every album, I have no idea what to expect from their first release since 1997. But I do know it will be wacky and weird, and that’s all I want.

Mitch Jascson - CKCU - Ottawa, Ontario

National Hum - Tuesdays 2-3pm

I hear that Ottawa bass/drum duo Big Dick are dropping a new record called “Disappointment” in the new year. They are probably one of the best bands in Ottawa so I am very excited for that.
