All the sidewalk chalk and wall pastes can be put back on the shelf, because tonight it’s the debut of “Reflektor” from Arcade Fire. It may or may not feature this guy, and probably sounds like this…but all speculation will end for sure tonight.
As for the rest of the month, here’s what you have to look forward to.
Arctic Monkeys – AM
Janelle Monáe – The Electric Lady
London Grammar – If You Wait
The Weeknd – Kiss Land
MGMT – MGMT
Elvis Costello and The Roots – Wise Up Ghost
CHVRCHES – The Bones of What You Believe
Mazzy Star – Seasons of Your Day
Drake – Nothing Was the Same
Kings of Leon – Mechanical Bull
HAIM – Days Are Gone
Early returns on the Arctic Monkeys album has been glowing and the Janelle Monáe singles have been swimming in my head ever since their release. Looking further ahead, Elvis Costello and The Roots together is my music nerd dream, but it could easily land in the Lou Reed And Metallica category. Plus albums from CHVRCHES and HAIM? Oh September, you and I will be busy, you clever minx.
