New Albums in 2009

There is much to look forward to in the world of music for 2009!  There are a few highly anticipated albums coming out over the next few months.  These will keep us alive until Spring can revive us!

Timber Timbre – 1/13/09 – The self titled album was released earlier this week.  I’m catching the show in February and will definitely pick up a copy then!

Charles Spearin – 2/14/09 – The perfect release for Valentine’s Day… The Happiness Project is the latest creative endevour of Charles Spearing (founding member of Broken Social Scene and Do Make Say Think).  You have to read about it to fully grasp the unique qualities of this album wherein Spearin attempts to “blur the line between speaking and singing”.

Neko Case – 3/3/09 – Neko added a great track from her upcoming album Middle Cyclone.  The track is called “People Got A Lotta Nerve” which she has graciously made available for download!  For every blog that posts the song they will donate $5 to the Best Friends Foundation.  She is just too awesome!

Bell Orchestre – 3/10/09 – Their second album As Seen Through Windows will be released on Arts & Crafts Records.  I’ve been hoping for a new CD since their first album came out in 2005!  Their recordings are both inspired and inspiring and their live show is breathtaking!

Great Lake Swimmers – 3/31/09 – The dust of their last album tour hadn’t settled before they were hard at work on Lost Channels!  They spent some time along the St. Lawrence River recording the new album and I can’t wait to hear the new material!  We can expect to see them live in Canada this March!

Ohbijou – 4/??/09 – After a busy tour with The Acorn, Ohbijou has been working hard on their latest offering Beacons.  We’ll be able to hear it in early April and don’t be surprised to see them performing at a venue near you!

Amy Millan – ??/??/09 – I don’t know how she finds the time but in between shows with Stars, Amy Millan has found time to work on her second solo album!  I haven’t got any official dates yet but I am hoping it will be released very soon!

I’m sure we will see many other great albums this year and hopefully live shows as well!  See you there!

  1. That line-up of new albums has me excited for all the touring to follow. I was fortunate to see Charles Spearin play one of his pieces at a Broken Social Scene show recently, and it was remarkable how he used instruments to recreate a voice, with modulation and all. Going to be a very interesting album.


  2. I’m excited for Belle Orchestre (still need to get the first album) and Ohbijou.

    Wonder if you read thru my blog which I got from CBC Radio 3’s blog post about the 2009 upcoming albums??


    • The first Bell Orchestre album is beautiful. Great sounds!
      I just checked out your wordpress blog and saw the 2009 album post. Looks like we were thinking of the same thing but with mostly different bands. There certainly is a lot of music coming out!
