With year-end listomania pretty much over and done with, it’s time to turn our attention to the year to come — and, specifically, which albums we’re most looking forward to hearing in 2014. So far, it’s shaping up very nicely indeed, thanks — there’s the return of a whole lot of artists who we’ve been waiting to hear from for up to four-and-a-half decades, along with debuts from exciting new talents. Here’s what’s gonna be on our shopping list once we pay off the debts of the “festive” season.
Angel Haze — Dirty Gold (December 30)
OK, this is strictly a 2013 release now, but shit, it misses 2014 by two days, and by the time we’re back from the Christmas/New Year break, it’ll be out and hopefully lots of people will have bought it. Fingers crossed.
