Might as well launch it.
Why not make this both a "New Music" thread as well as a "What Are You Listening To Right Now" thread?
Listening to a Del McCoury Band album that's been on my to-listen-to pile since october of 2010 right now called Del and the Boys. I'm liking it. I'm glad I bought this one.

"The well-meaning contention that all ideas have equal merit seems to me little different from the disastrous contention that no ideas have any merit." Carl Sagan
Can it also be a "What albums are you excited for in 2012?" thread? I always learn about new albums that way.
I'm excited for the new Why? and new Animal Collective. That's kinda all I know about.

Ben Kweller has a new album out in early February.
Looking forward to Nine Inch Nails' The Fragile: Ultimate Edition, which sounds like it may actually be coming out soon. Plus the new album TR has recently hinted at and the How to Destroy Angels full length.
Hoping that the new song Faith No More performed recently is a sign of more to come. Or at least that some of the unheard stuff comes to light (a full version of the Seagull/Shuffle song would be a cool start).
And hoping as always that Mr. Bungle patches things up. Might 2012 finally be the year?
