4 Upcoming Albums to Take Note Of

March 21, 2011

Earlier this year, we highlighted five upcoming albums that were worth taking note of. We continue along those lines with this post which, highlights four awesome-sounding albums coming out in the next few months.

The Submarines – Love Notes / Letter Bombs (April 5)

Love Notes / Letter Bombs is The Submarines’ third album, and they have a lot to live up to. Crafted by husband/wife team John Dragonetti and Blake Hazard, their first two albums are pure indie-pop bliss. Enjoying increasingly more exposure due to their song, “You, Me, and the Bourgeoisie” being used in several iPhone commercials, it looks as though their third album will easily live up to the high stand that they have set for themselves. Listen to/download the first single from the album below. It’s called “Birds”, and it’s beautiful.



Maritime – Human Hearts (April 5)

Anyone familiar with the early 2000’s band The Promise Ring probably has heard of Maritime; Maritime is what became of many  The Promise Ring’s members. Maritime offers some incredible indie-pop, and they may easily be one of the most under-appreciated bands making music today. CLICK HERE to get the single from the upcoming album, Human Hearts, for free. You’ll see what I mean.



Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues (May 3)

Fleet Foxes debut album, released in 2008, was hailed by many as the very best album of the year (and one of the best of the decade). Few albums of 2011 are quite as anticipated as Helplessness Blues, and judging by the title track released today, it’s looking to  be just as wonderful as their first album. Listen/download the track below, and notice the folky baroque-pop that is often the reason behind Fleet Foxes acclaim.



Death Cab For Cutie – Codes And Keys (May 31)

Most folks have heard of Death Cab For Cutie by now; the indie rockers endured over a decade of small venues and independent record labels and now find themselves playing sold out stadiums and releasing records on the behemoth Atlantic label. Their last full-length, Narrow Stairs was met with much success, and their upcoming LP, Codes and Keys, will probably face a similar reception. Lead singer/songwriter of the outfit, Benjamin Gibbard, has faced a large amount of changes since the band’s last effort, most significantly his marriage with movie-star/indie heartthrob Zooey Deschanel. With such a change, this album could be the most optimistic of Death Cab’s usual introspective fare. Hear the live version of the album’s title track below:
