Music in 2009

I'm sure this is old news to many, but Bonnie "Prince" Billy will be releasing Beware! in March via Domino. Guests include Jon Langford, Emmett Kelly and Leroy Bach, to name a few. Add to that a huge list of artists with either confirmed or probable releases, and 2009 is shaping up to be a massive year. Based on label schedules, artist websites, rumors, drunken drivel and other sources, the following will likely have records out before the annual clock turns again (*means it's confirmed):

Bruce Springsteen*
M. Ward*
Josh Ritter
Tim Easton*
Arcade Fire
Josh Rouse
Son Volt
The Gourds*
Gary Louris & Mark Olson*
The Wrens (been on this list since 1944)
Antony & The Johnsons*
Neko Case*
The Avalanches
Gillian Welch (see The Wrens)
Roxy Music
New Pornographers*
The Concretes
