Boney's Anticipated Albums 2017

Kind of a pointless list, just tracking all the albums I intend to check out later in the year. If there's something coming out that you think I might be interested in by all means rec it. Will try to update as new albums get announced. (In some cases the exact genres of some of these releases I'm not totally sure of so I've just given my best guess.)
1John Mayer
The Search for Everything


April 14 / Pop Rock

Ok as of posting this list this has already been released where I am. Haven't listened to the Waves he already released but don't have terribly high hopes for this.
2Angaleena Presley
Wrangled


April 21 / Country

Her last album was very good for a pretty standard contemporary country album, kinda hate this album's cover but hopefully there are a few good tunes here.
3Feist
Pleasure


April 28 / Indie Rock (?)

I'm pretty excited to hear this. Her last album Metals was her best yet so I'm hoping this one follows from that. The title track is pretty different for her with a PJ Harvey influenced, bluesy sound.
4Mark Lanegan
Gargoyle


April 28 / Rock

Danielcardoso recommended me his Whiskey For the Holy Ghost album a few months ago and it was very good so I'll be giving this a listen for sure.
5Willie Nelson
God's Problem Child


April 28 / Country

Not expecting much from this, his voice is still great but his last album of original material was pretty lackluster so I doubt this'll be very different.
6Sylvan Esso
What Now


April 28 / Electropop

Their debut was pretty good so this should hopefully be solid.
7Mac DeMarco
This Old Dog


May 5 / Indie Pop (?)

I dig his last album, the released tracks from this are just ok though. Should bring some nice chill vibes nonetheless. I like Mac himself as a person more than his music if I'm being honest but hey let him do his thing.
8John Moreland
Big Bad Luv


May 5 / Americana

Pretty excited for this one. His last album High On Tulsa Heat didn't quite live up to the hype but I have a feeling he'll pull through with this one (despite the awful title).
9Slowdive
Slowdive


May 5 / Shoegaze

Haven't listened to their old work yet, gotta get on that in the next few weeks. I bet this will be lame though.
10Chris Stapleton
From A Room: Volume 1


May 5 / Country

The follow-up to 2015's excellent Traveler is actually the first of two albums Stapleton has planned for 2017. Despite breaking through into the country mainstream this guy is the real deal, should be some great tunes here.
11Various Artists
Cover Stories


May 5 / Americana

This is kind of a weird album. It's a full cover of Brandi Carlile's 2007 album The Story, done by a number of different artists several of whom are far bigger names than Carlile herself. The featured acts range from Dolly Parton to Jim James to The Indigo Girls to Adele to Pearl Jam of all people. It's strange too because the original album isn't even particularly great. It's going to be a weird album, that's for sure. It's for a good cause though, so I can't criticize it too much.
12The Mountain Goats
Goths


May 19 / Indie Folk

The last album wasn't terribly impressive so I'm not sure what to expect from this. Hoping Darnielle pulls through.
13Justin Townes Earle
Kids In The Street


May 26 / Americana

I'm not a fan of this guy's past work - he's the son of the legendary country songwriter Steve Earle but unfortunately he has almost none of his father's talent. Still I'll give this a fair listen or two and hope for the best.
14Alt-J
Relaxer


June 2 / Art Pop

I love their debut but didn't like This Is All Yours, expecting this to fall somewhere in between.
15Dan Auerbach
Waiting On A Song


June 2 / Blues Rock

This the Black Keys' frontman's second solo effort, hoping it's decent.
16Stevens / Dessner / Muhly / McAlister
Planetarium


June 9 / Synthpop (?)

Kind of a strange project this, wasn't a huge fan of the released song but I still expect this to be an interesting listen at the very least.
17Fleet Foxes
Crack-Up


June 16 / Chamber Folk

I'm absolutely hyped for this, definitely the album here I'm most excited for. "Third of May / Odaigahara" is absolutely amazing. I'm really hoping Pecknold and the boys pull through with a classic with this one.
18Kevin Morby
City Music


June 16 / Indie Folk

His album last year was great but could have used some stronger songwriting, hoping this improves on that.
19Jason Isbell
The Nashville Sound


June 16 / Americana

Isbell's last album was excellent if somewhat disappointing after the perfect Southeastern. Apparently this is his return to "rock", accordingly it's billed to Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit. I'm not too keen on the released song, it's a pretty rote country rock song and it's lyrics were well below Isbell's usual standard of quality but I'm keeping my hopes up that this will be great.
20Ride
Weather Diaries


June 16 / Shoegaze (?)

Same deal here as with Slowdive.
21Jeff Tweedy
Together At Last


June 23 / Folk

Tweedy performing a bunch of old Wilco songs and a couple from some side projects in the solo acoustic fashion. I really don't see the point of this as he's mostly chosen classic songs from the Wilco catalogue and there's just no way any of them are going to be better than the originals... Feels kind of like a cheap cash grab to me, and even worse it's apparently the first in a series.
22Steve Earle
So You Wannabe An Outlaw


June 16 / Alt-country
