View: Five future Albums of the Year for 2013

DESPITE the voting to name the Sound Advice Album of the Year for 2012 still being open, I couldn’t help but take a peek into the pipeline and select a few potential Albums of the Year 2013.
Here is what I found in the pipe.

Thom Yorke (Radiohead) + Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) + Nigel Godrich (Radiohead) + Joey Waronker (Beck & R.E.M) + Mauro Refosco (David Byrne & Red Hot Chili Peppers) = sum thing good.

No band has made my Albums of the Year shortlists more than Biffy Clyro. Don’t bet against the Biff doing it again with Opposites.

Judging by the quality of the first few tracks to be released from Everything Everything’s Arc, be glad you only have to wait until January to hear it.

Holy Fire by Foals is set to usher in the band’s funkiest, heaviest work to date. Hot stuff.

A new, full, proper, non-side-project release from Scandanavian electronic duo The Knife? Yes please, Shaking The Habitual.
And don’t forget, there’s still time to dwell in the past and vote for the Album of the Year 2012 below…
