A Look Ahead to 2019 in Music
A Look Ahead to 2019 in Music – by Killian Laher
It already looks like a good year in 2019 with lots of new albums on the way. First up will be Scottish moaners The Twilight Sad, who will do their level best to start off the year appropriately by bringing us all down. Their fifth album, It Won’t Be Like This All The Time comes out on 18th January and if Videograms is anything to go by, will have an electronic feel.
Out the same day is guitar whizzkid Steve Gunn‘s latest The Unseen In Between, which will feature New Moon
Swervedriver have Future Ruins due for release in January, and if the driving rock of Mary Winter is anything to go by it augurs well.
If a bit of power rock is your bag, Bob Mould’s Sunshine Rock will be out in February –
Also out will be The Lemonheads second collection of covers, titled Varshons 2 which will cover Yo La Tengo amongst others
It will be interesting to hear how Morrissey‘s covers album, California Son turns out which will cover sixties artists Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan but none of his contemporaries. Robert Forster releases a solo album, Inferno, in March, while Eric Pulido of Midlake goes solo as E.B. The Younger, and he will release To Each His Own in March
Caught In The Wake Forever will release their first album for a while, the piano-based Waypoints in the first half of 2019. RM Hubbert has started working on an album, with an accompanying film, while Dakota Suite plan to release what might be their finsl two albums: The Indestructability of the Already Felled with Quentin Sirjacq and a ‘loud’ record, which would be something of a departure. Also working on an album is Nick Cave, The Cure may release their first album in 10 years to coincide with a major tour, while My Bloody Valentine have been talking about releasing a couple of EPs. Even Paul Buchanan is rumoured to be releasing another solo album. And if you do an internet search, you’ll find out what major-talent-turned-joke- figure Mark Kozelek is up to for 2019.
