Well, this is it folks, the last day of 2012. It’s been a year just like any others. We’ve had good stuff happen, we’ve had bad stuff happen. But now is the time to look forward and feel excitement. After all, it’s a new year! It’s a time for new beginnings, fresh starts, etc… And what makes things better than some new music, right? So, with that in mind, I’ve come up with 14 albums that I just cannot WAIT to get my grubby little mitts on. Check ‘em out below and make sure to leave your most anticipated albums in the comments!

Basick Records have signed Chicago band Alaya to their roster. Their debut album Thrones will be released next year. As part of this announcement, the band has released a video for their song “Inside”, which I highly recommend you check out below. I can’t exactly put my finger on why, but I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for the past half hour and I’m not getting tired of it at all.
Vocalist/Guitarist Evan Graham Dunn comments, “It’s surreal – signing to a label that supports bands I’ve been a fan of for some time. Uneven Structure especially has been in my deck since “8″ was released. As a band, we’ve waited for our entire career for someone to give us this chance, and we’re going to do everything we can to make the most of it. We can’t wait to hit the ground running and continue to work our collective asses off knowing now that Basick Records has got our back.”
One of the things I noticed was that Dunn uses a Godin LGX-SA, which on top of being a gorgeous and fantastic guitar (I’ve played several and they were all amazing) has the ability to hook up a guitar synth system. The sonic possibilities are pretty endless once you do that, so I’m really intrigued to see what sounds and textures they come up with. These guys are definitely on my “watch” list. READ MORE
