We at RSU Radio have a new years resolution: listen to as much music as possible. That’s actually our resolution every year, and we think we’re doing a pretty good job. In order to make this resolution a possibility we have compiled a list of albums that we are very excited about in early 2015. These come from all different genres, and most likely will all be played on RSU Radio. Head over to the RSU Radio Facebook and tell us which albums you are most looking forward to.

Dr. Dog – Live at a Flamingo Hotel (Jan 13)

Dr. Dog will be releasing thier first live album. It features songs from the band’s seven studio albums, as well as a cover of Architecture In Helsinki’s song “Heart It Races”.

Panda Bear – Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper (Jan 13)

Lupe Fiasco – Tetsuo and Youth (Jan 20)

The Decemberists – What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World (Jan 20)

The indie folk rockers will release their first album in four years this month. If the full-length is anything like the singles, this album will be one to watch for.

Sleater-Kinney – No Cities to Love (Jan 20)

Sleater-Kinney are set to return to the world of music after a six year hiatus. Carrie Brownstein may be known recently for her acting on the sketch comedy show Portlandia, but the return of the trio shows that all three are looking to recapture some of the thunder they had in the late 90’s and early 00’s. Look for their new album on SubPop Records.

Dengue Fever – The Deepest Lake (Jan 27)

Doomtree – All Hands (Jan 27)

Mark Ronson – Uptown Special (Jan 27)

Producer Mark Ronson’s Uptown Special promises to be pack with funk and soul feel, as well as some big guest appearances. The cast of featured artists includes Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars, Mystikal, and Kevin Parker. Big horns, funky rhythms, and catchy hooks are likely to have your feet moving.

Murder by Death – Big Dark Love (Feb 3)

Gang of Four – What Happens Next (Feb 24)

Modest Mouse – Strangers to Ourselves (Mar 3)

Isaac Brock and crew bring us one of the most anticipated albums of the year. The lead single “Lampshades on Fire” gives us the signature sound that you expect from Modest Mouse, but the album cuts are what we are looking forward to.

Asleep at the Wheel – “Still The King: Celebrating The Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys” (March 3)

The Very Best – TBA

Band of Horses: TBA

Kendrick Lamar – TBA
