The Pitchfork Guide to Upcoming Releases: Winter 2009

Posted by Carlos Gabriel Ruiz on January 8th, 2009

2008 is so over.  Okay, now what?

For the Pretentious Record Store Guy and music lover, 2009 brings with it an infinite number of new possibilities and, of course, new music and bands to listen to and fall in love with.  Lucky, for you, Pitchfork magazine put out their guide for the upcoming Winter 2009 releases.

Here’s what they say.  Enjoy.

Welcome once again to the Pitchfork Guide to Upcoming Releases, our seasonal guide to upcoming releases! Four times a year, we round up a big ol’ list of albums, singles, EPs, and DVDs set to be unleashed over the coming months, hoping to get you pumped about going out and buying records. (You do still do that, right? RIGHT?) This installment covers early 2009.

Compiling such a list isn’t easy in this day and age, with different release dates for digital and physical versions of albums, as well as different release dates for different countries. So we tried to stick with North American physical release dates as much as possible, with exceptions as noted. When an album’s North American release date differs from its overseas one, we also made a note of that. Keep in mind that release dates are as slippery as an eel on rollerskates, and any one of these is subject to change at any moment.
