Highlights for 2015

It's looking quiet enough so far in 2015.  The Juliana Hatfield Three have reunited and are releasing the follow up to 1993's Become What You Are on 17th Feb and based on the first track to emerge If I Could, it will be a summery janglefest.  Dakota Suite are collaborating with Quentin Sirjacq for The Indestructibility of the Already Felled which should appear early in 2015.  If it's noise you're looking for there's a choice between A Place To Bury Strangers' fourth album Transfixiation, out 17th Feb or The Soft Moon's third album Deeper, out 31st March.

Scott Weiland is recording a rock album with The Wildabouts.  Entitled Blaster, it should be out in March.  Elsewhere, Richmond Fontaine and And So I Watch You From Afar have new albums expected.  On the more outlandish scale of the spectrum, Mark Kozelek is working with industrial band Godflesh, and maybe My Bloody Valentine will release an EP??

There'll surely be more than this next year...
