The QOTSA and Bronx are promising, Nick Cave always delivers, and I'm with you that I'll believe the MBV when I see it. But, mostly I'm really hoping to be surprised by something- I'm hoping for something really good to come out of left field, or something like that. Looking back on 2012, that was the kind of thing that really made me happy: stuff like Baroness suddenly becoming the Flaming Lips of sludge metal, or Bob Mould playing pop punk, happily- the things I could never have predicted.
Happy new year Max. I just listed what I knew what was coming but I'm sure there are going to be some surprises. If any record this year gives me half the amount of joy I get when I listen to Silver Age, I'll be happy.
