But! now, with Flea tweeting a couple photos taken in the studio and galvanizing the public about the latest album, following their smash double album Stadium Arcadium released back in '06, it's time to allow that ball of excitement to release in my stomach. RHCP is already slated to perform in Osaka Japan, headlining with the Strokes, as well as Rock in Rio this year. Tantalizing.
There are myriad delicious albums to wait for with bated breath this year. Among my most anticipated are the following: My Morning Jacket [THANK you Yim Yames! Evil Urges was sinfully eclectic but it's been too long!], BON IVER [who flabbergasted me by collaborating with Kanye on his new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (Listen here: Lost in the World)], Jane's Addiction, Radiohead, Wilco, Outkast, Fleet Foxes, Lady Gaga [yikes, Gaga, did I really just throw you in so nonchalantly? Whatever -- I'm stoked!], The Shins. If the White Stripes miraculously tuned up their brother-sister-wify-husband-incestuously confused act, we'd have an apocalyptic royal flush.
My Morning Jacket: Touch Me I'm Going to Scream If You Don't, Pt. 2; Bermuda Highway; Wordless Chorus
Bon Iver: Skinny Love; Re: Stacks; Flume
Jane's Addiction: Jane Says (Duh.); Been Caught Stealin'
Radiohead: I Might Be Wrong
Wilco: Jesus Etc.
Outkast: Happy Valentine's Day
Fleet Foxes: White Winter Hymnal
Lady Gaga: Teeth
The Shins: Australia; Sea Legs (*still to this day one of the sexiest songs I've ever heard), Phantom Limb
White Stripes: Jolene; I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself;
