Today’s GOOD comes from three upcoming 2011 releases that i’m super excited about.
First up, the Swedish songstress Lykke Li.
Back in October, Lykke Li dropped her latest EP-project Get Some/Paris Blue. The A-side track, Get Some, has been getting most of the love (you can download the Beck remix here), but my favorite of the two is the B-side, Paris Blue. (Lykke Li’s new album, Wounded Rhymes, will be out sometime 2011)
Next up, probably my favorite noise-pop band these days, Deerhoof.
Deerhoof’s 10th studio album is set to be released in the US on January 25th, 2011, but back in early October, the band released the new track, The Merry Barracks, and if the rest of the album is anything like this, we’re in for quite the treat.
Lastly, one of my absolute favorite bands, The Go! Team.
The Go! Team’s last album, Proof of Youth, came out way back in 2007 and i’ve been patiently waiting for something new from the Brighton-based sextet since then. Their latest, Rolling Blackouts, is set to be released sometime next year and will feature collaborations with the likes of Satomi Matsuzaki (Deerhoof) and Bethany Cosentino (Best Coast). Needless to say, Rolling Blackouts is the album i’m most excited to hear in 2011 and without further ado, the lead-off track, T.O.R.N.A.D.O.
