The wonderful people at Pitchfork compiled an epic list that catalogues what might be every release from now until July 22, which at the moment only has Daft Punk's Electroma being released (which I reviewed right here). While I have my doubts as to whether or not this is entirely complete, it is nonetheless quite substantial. It has everything from limited release 7 inches to reissues and greatest hits compilations. April 8 (next week!) looks to be the day with the most releases, a mammoth number of 56, and a lot of them are looking pretty good (Nadja, an Envy DVD, an Explorers Club 7", Boredoms, The Breeders). However, May 20 looks like it might be the day with the highest ratio of good to bad releases. There's Explorers Club's full length (yes!) Indian Jewelry, Islands, Jeremy Jay, Joan Of Arc, Scarlett Johansson (yeah, that Tom Waits cover record), Mates Of State, The Wedding Present, Windsor For The Derby, and quite a few other goodies. That's the day that's gonna break the bank. Anyway, if you have some free time, check out their list. It's quite titillating.
