2010: THE FUTURE IS HERE STICK IT IN YOUR EAR


As the autumn turns to the winter of our discontent and we hold onto our jobs with both hands, let’s think of better times ahead. 2010 is round the corner and this is what we expect…
 
 
Arcade Fire, the Shins, Vampire Weekend: VE have their sophormore effort to hoise upon us after what will be a two year recorded hiatus come January and from what I’ve heard they may well have blown it. The Shins James mercer has fired his drummer and keyboardist of nine years and will be releasing his follow up to Wincing The Night Away, formed his own record label and should be ready to release his most important album since Natalie Portman called the shins a band that’ll change your life. The only band with more at stake is Canada’s Arcade Fire, a band lead by by the weaned, intellectually damaging egoist Win Butler, have everything in the world to play for and my bet will be the best of the three, a hit album followed by a sold out MSG.
 
 
 
Pavement, Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand : Nostalgia aint what it used to be but Pavement should do for the 90s what Houston will do for the 80s: take the past and shove it down your throat. Admittedly, her new album is a disappointment but Whitney has what no one can take from her: a catalogue to die for and millions of fans. Pavement were always great live and let’s just hope they keep to Slanted, Crooked Rain and Zowie. Streisand is just a hunch but she does have a new album out and should be in the mood for an audience after her Village vanguard gig.
 

Paul Szot: The great young Brazilian baritone who wowed em in South Pacific has an opera this winter at Lincoln center and what’s that’s over let’s see if he can crossover to the mainstream. At Summerstage last summer he sang beautifully but uncomfortably but now is his chance to blow the States away. He has got the voice and he has got the looks but he is missing the ego to command the stage. With the right management Szot could be huge.
 
 

Crossover Dance: Somebody, simewhere, is waiting to break Dance huge in the States: this year has seen a consolidation of all the parts amassing since the birth of the digital dance age ten years ago. Now you’ll see the face behind the earphones, now a rock band -an MGMT? Of Montreal? will mix and match with a DJ to form a modern rock dance band and make tons of money.
 

 
The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger can’t wait five years between tours any more. Even a band as popular as the Stones won’t be able to sell 75 year old men as arena rockers -figure Jagger will go next year, take a years break, go the following year, and hang it up.
 
 

Bright Eyes: I know my Conor: working with Mike Mogis will give Conor the desire to do some Bright Eyes material (I hear he is playing some with MOF). An album of new Bright Eyes by April, expect them in NYC by the summer.
