LCD Soundsystem

Is there any band in this indie world that is not putting out an album this year? All the big guns, and the new littler but just as important guns, are announcing new albums to be released this year. All of us amateur music critics will have a pretty tough time compiling best of the year lists once the year ends if more bands keep announcing 2010 album release dates.

In the past few weeks alone, Broken Social Scene, The Hold Steady, The National and LCD Soundsystem have all recently announced albums with May release dates. I cannot believe all that music awesomeness will be occurring within the span of a few Tuesdays. Our pocket money will surely be hurting in June.

But, seriously. What in the world is going on in May? Is there something these guys know that we don't? Will June bring a sort of indie apocalypse, or an actual apocalypse, for that matter? We'll have to wait and see, I guess. In the meantime we can all eagerly anticipate the arrival of too much exciting music.
