Dirty-haired pajama party

Okay, what is this? Has anyone been noticing what's going on? They're attacking us! Attacking us with songs and bombarding us with good music all over the place! Teasing us with their myriads of new or soon-to-be-released albums! What do Los Campesinos, The National, Islands, Johnny Foreigner, Land of Talk and that dude from TV On the Radio have in common? Yep, you guessed it: they all have a new album out soon and are shamelessly offering preview-songs from it to get us interested. The sheer amount of bands I love releasing new material in the next three months scares me out of my wits. There are expectations and hopes regarding each and every one of them. And there's just no time to readjust them now. It feels a bit like a crowd of shiny-happy-people just stormed into my house (knocking down the front door and forgetting to put the dog back in) demanding I have a party. They're nice, all pretty smiles and rosy cheeks and they bring music and champagne, and prettily-wrapped gifts too, it's not that. It's just that I wish I would have had time to wash my hair, get out of my pajamas - maybe even bake a cake - before they started forcing a party hat onto my head. But what the heck!You can't look a gift-horse in the mouth. A dirty-haired pajama party it is! Let's celebrate:
Dan Mangan - Robots
Bear in Heaven - Wholehearted Mess
 Rain Machine - Smiling Black Faces
Correatown - Valparaiso
Land of Talk - May You Never
Islands - Vapours
Allo Darlin' - Dear Stephen Hawking
Johnny Foreigner - Camp Kelly Calm
