music to get excited about right now

So many of my favorite bands have new albums coming out this July/August/September that I am worried I’ll lose track of which ones I want to buy and on what dates. Is there something like Goodreads for music, so I can know when the bands that I love have new music?

In the absence of a Goodreads-for-music website, I’m going to try to compile a list here. Am I forgetting anyone important?

Bloc Party – Four
released August 21
Purchase on iTunes

Van She – Idea of Happiness
released August 21
Purchase on iTunes

Jens Lekman – I Know What Love Isn’t
expected September 4
Preorder on iTunes

Cat Power – Sun
expected September 4
Preorder on iTunes
Stream the full album on NPR

Maximo Park – The National Health
released July 3
Purchase on iTunes

Matchbox Twenty – North
expected September 4
Preorder on iTunes
Stream the full album on iTunes

Passion Pit – Gossamer
released July 23

I am telling you: that’s a LOT of favorite bands to have albums coming out over the course of only two months! No wonder I feel overwhelmed!

Are there any other new albums that I should be getting excited about right now?
