Albums I'm Excited About: Bombay Bicycle Club & Phantogram

A new year means new albums to get excited about & there are several that I'm really looking forward to owning (on vinyl of course.) The first two up on my list are Phantogram's long-awaited sophomore album Voices & Bombay Bicycle Club's So Long, See You Tomorrow. 

Phantogram- "Nothing But Trouble"
After seeing Phantogram twice in the span of two months back in 2011 - I had no idea it would take almost 2 years until I would see them perform live again. After releasing their self-titled EP back in September, they've been able to slowly but surely drop songs from their unreleased album titled Voices due out February 18th via Republic Records. Everything they've released so far has been nothing short of amazing, and this album is going to be pure gold if the rest follow in this path.
I was kind of surprised to not see Phantogram on the Coachella lineup, but have no fear -they're playing a handful of shows in California next month!  

2/20 - Oakland, CA @ Fox Theater - Oakland 
2/21 - Sacramento, CA @ Ace Of Spades
2/22 - Los Angeles, CA @ The Hollywood Palladium
2/23 - Ventura, CA @ The Majestic Ventura Theater

P.S if you pre-order Voices on iTunes now, you'll receive an instant download of "Fall In Love" click here to do so! 
Here's the 3rd release from So Long, See You Tomorrow due out February 4th. In case you were wondering, the female vocalist in this song is Rae Morris, who supported BBC on a previous tour. Get to know her music via SoundCloud, I recommend it. I don't think anyone understands how excited I am to finally see BBC on the Coachella bill. In addition to Coachella they will be touring the US starting in Sacramento on April 11th!
