I highly anticipate f.e. Owel's album as it's my newest discovery here, but I voted:
The Dangerous Summer
but there is a lot more that I'm excited for, it really was quite hard to choose.. For example 5 more that I'm sure some people will like too:
The Reign Of Kindo
Happy Body Slow Brain
Balance and Composure
and a lot more, that's gonna be a good year probably... I'd hope for some good europian releases! Scandinavia always brings something great to the table, let's say Jeniferever or Ef. If it comes to UK; Funeral for a Friend, Twin Atlantic.. And if it comes to us here in Poland, I'm sure AOTY will be from Tides From Nebula, highly recommended for instrumental music followers ;))
That Owel album is the best thing I've heard so far this year. Hope you ordered the CD.
Tides From Nebula rules, would be pumped for new stuff.
