Because it ain't 2015 anymore. If it were, we'd be talking about it here: http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,19540.0.html  Several year-end recaps can be found in the latter pages of that thread, so check it out if you want to find something new. But to find something newer, check in here. Later. Once something has been written about.

There's a possibility of a new Roger Waters album for 2016. 

But, there's been speculation of a new Roger Waters album since he returned to touring back in 1999.

I'm looking forward to the new Bowie on Friday!

Also the new Tindersticks (thanks for that one, unreleased backgrounds) and Savages this month. Some other stuff too, but we'll have to see how those pan out.

I've got some 2015 releases that I got for Christmas I still have yet to listen to. 

Not sure if it'll be out in 2016, but Deep Purple is going back into the studio this month. 

Anthrax also is putting out a new album soon.

New Dr. Dog song out ("Bring My Baby Back"). I'm not super familiar with them, but they are coming in concert soon so maybe I should? Ha. But I'm digging this new song so far.

I hear Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, and MGMT are supposed to come out with new music this year as well, if that interests anyone.

I'm really hoping that the Shins put out a new album. Their instagram is filled with studio shots and it's killing me.

Ditto. They are one of two acts I've seen--John Vanderslice was the other--where throughout the show, while they were doing original songs, I was thinking (and eventually naming out loud to my friends) the classic rock and pop riffs, melodies, etc., that they were "borrowing." That was a solid decade ago now, and I've heard bits and pieces of their stuff since. It's fine, certainly. But I just can't shake my initial reaction.

Fans of last year's Sufjan album might be interested in this: the R&B (is that the right description for him?) Gallant did a version of Sufjan's "Blue Bucket of Gold" from the Carrie and Lowell album. Someone here, and apologies because I forgot who, shared Gallant with us on one of the previous years' new music threads, or possibly on that "album listening project" thing we did for a while.

Interesting... yeah, my friends who do know Dr. Dog LOVE them. But I can also see how they borrow. The song "My Friends" has a train sound at the end, closing the album. Sounds awfully familiar Tongue.

Also, thank you for sharing that "Blue Bucket of Gold" video... probably my favorite album from 2015 :')
I think this Gallant guy is the same person who helps Sufjan on this "Hotline Bling" cover (I know, so 2014, but this is great): http://www.buzzfeed.com/kevinsmith/will-you-finally-find-someone-or-nah#.eoZDE5WzD

David Bowie's Blackstar is good.

Yes, Blackstar is a very nice album. I like that it's mostly pretty different from The Next Day, even though I really liked and still listen to that album and it's supplemental songs. Using a band of Jazzbos was an inspired idea that gives the project it's unique flavor. My favorites are Dollar Days and the title song.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

I picked up Eleanor Friedberger's New View.

Fiery Furnaces were a band I really liked--I still say Blueberry Boat, EP, and Rehearsing My Choir are some of the best albums of the '00s--and Eleanor has done some really cool solo material over the years, too. Sadly, this one was underwhelming on first listen, very middle-of-the-road in every respect. I didn't even like anything as much as I did her 2015 single "False Alphabet City." Obviously one listen does not a comprehension make, so maybe I'll find out it's a grower.

Kinda funny that you'd put that dinosaur picture on a Beach Boys forum.  Especially considering The Beach Boys predate the careers of both Deep Purple and Pink Floyd by half a decade.

......

Looking forward to the debut album from The Last in Line, featuring Vivian Campbell, Vinny Appice, and the recently departed Jimmy Bain (the main players on the classic Dio albums Holy Diver and Last In Line).

Dinosaurs dominated the earth for 135 million years. I'd call it a compliment...

There's a palindrome in here somewhere----I can smell it. Grin

How about:
Avid Al stops Bob Lamm: "Am I mammal?" (Bob spots L.A. diva)

Intrigued by a review (which included mention of Lhasa, a singer sadly departed) and sample, I bought Tindersticks' The Waiting Room and will listen at work today. I shall report back.

I heard that the other day. Not one of their very best, but still good. Will probably get it at some point.

I missed the free download, but just started checking the samples on iTunes. Right off the bat, I thought track one ("Consideration") sounded cool. Have you listened yet? Thoughts? I'll check Spotify and see if it's there yet. I'm thinking I'll end up getting at least a few tracks. Historically I'm not a big Rihanna fan, but she has her moments. I'd love for this to be a good album (because frankly I'd love for every album to be a good album).

I think it's kinda crazy to realize that she had 13 US number ones. I mean, even regardless of one's opinion of the contemporary charts and the artists featured in them, it's still no mean feat. Only Beatles, Elvis and Mariah Carey had more (Michael Jackson had as many).

That's amazing. I couldn't name 13 of her songs.

That said, my download of the new album is in progress, as I enjoyed enough of the previews that it seemed worthwhile.

I'm going to answer my own question. It's a good album!
