What’s interesting this year?

A brief break in the show reports for a quick list of upcoming 2008 releases I’m interested in.

Also, recently released are new albums from Guapo and Genghis Tron, both of which are on my want list. I just recently got the new Earth, The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull, featuring Bill Frisell, and it’s fabulous. Maybe my favorite one of theirs since Earth 2, even.
