I previously mentioned how excited I am for the year in music, 2010 version. But in addition to the already discussed, I'd just like to add a few more to the CANNOTHARDLYWAIT list:
Yeasayer - Odd Blood (Feb 9)
The National (TBA)
LCD Soundsystem - TBA (March)
Panda Bear (TBA)
There are rumors of new releases by Broken Social Scene, Fleet Foxes, Blitzen Trapper, and The Arcade Fire, but I don't want to get my hopes up that much. Because how awesome would that be? Answer: TOO. AWESOME.
(Head on over to Stereogum to see the rest of this list, as well as other confirmed/rumored/hoped for releases in the comments section)
