January To-Do's

List is pretty simple, albums in January (and change) I need to scoop up at some point. Recs for things I might've overlooked are welcome.
1David Bowie
Blackstar


Obvious. I actually heard "Lazarus" on the radio for the first time about two weeks ago, and sat there enthralled for the full six minutes or so. I'm just ashamed I didn't jump on it even sooner.
2Daughter
Not to Disappear


Didn't even realize this was on the horizon until yesterday, so that's a pleasant surprise.
3Shearwater
Jet Plane and Oxbow


Ditto here. January's surprisingly stacked.
4Savages
Adore Life


Need to give the debut a solid re-listening, but I remember digging it a lot back when it was released.
5Steven Wilson
4 1/2


Confessedly, I fall more towards the fanboy end of the spectrum for Wilson's projects, but I still like to think I'm not a full and utter acolyte. With that being said, I'll readily admit that I've liked nearly all of his solo offerings more than the last (Raven... may still win top honors in my book), so even if this is just strays from along that road, I'm still pretty intrigued by the prospect.
6Kauan
Sorni Nai


So this has admittedly been "out" for quite some time now, but it appears that the wider physical U.S. release is slated for January, and I'm still a sucker for that. If nothing else, in the interim it's given me the excuse to waste time at my desk looking up the historical event on which it's based. Which, spoilies: While it's certainly tragic and horrific, the more you read, the less sinister and more mundane the details seem.
7Black Tusk
Pillars of Ash


These kids have yet to disappoint.
8Bloc Party
Hymns


This, meanwhile, I am very much on the fence on. To clarify, I actually enjoyed Four quite a bit, and have consistently liked Kele's solo, more electronic-oriented material. But that first single...ugh. It just sounded lazy. But, as a counterpoint, that acoustic demo for "Exes" that's been floating around a while is, in my opinion, really goddamn good. So...yeah...I suppose we will see.
