THEIR BATED BREATH | 2012 Albums to Look For

There are a number of albums to look forward to hearing this year, some on the calendar already, and one may be better described as wishful thinking. Here are a few albums that I can’t wait to hear. Bear in mind, I have no word whatsoever about a Fiona Apple album or a The The record. I’m just crossing my fingers. Judging by comments Apple made to the crowd at a concert last year, she acted as if she has a number of songs finished and is waiting for a label or something. We’ve heard this story before too, right? Right before we heard 2005’s “Extraordinary Machine”. Note: Image from artist’s official website. — David D. Robbins Jr.
