Upcoming Release Calendar

Tonight the Grammys will be awarded.  While there are a few intriguing oddball category nominations (see Fleet Foxes nominated under Best Folk and Bon Iver under Best New Artist), the Grammys aren’t much of a barometer of taste for the heavy users amongst us.  Do I like Adele’s 21, sure, but why not get excited about records that are on the calendar ahead instead of looking back at music you are most likely already aware of tonight on CBS.  Here are the records I plan to add to my collection in the coming months:

Shearwater – Animal Joy (2/14)
