Today I am mostly asking for 2009 music-related predictions


Next week we've got some Polish people in to clean our crystal balls and DiS is running our 2009 preview. This first part of our preview comes somewhat prematurely as there are bugger-all good records left to come out and well, with the web it's always good to be first.

Today I'm asking people who are always 'on it' the following questions:

- what do you think the dominant sound(s) of 2009 might be?
- what records due in 2009 are you excited about?
- any new bands you recommend people check out?
- [for those in bands/the industry] what projects are you working on / will you be working on in 2009?

As readers of this blog you can submit contributions too (either comment below or drop me an email sean aaaaatttt drownedinsound dottydot com ). Feel free to write as little or as much as you like and we'll be compiling it all at the tail-end of the week.

Many thanks

New sound for 2009? Psychedelic sixties is coming back!
Two unknown acts to look out for - Hello SeaHorse from Mexico, and Uniform Motion Pictures from France!

I predict dubstep is really going to take off in 2009, more and more people are becoming interested...it's going to be great!

No idea about the dominant sound(s) of 2009 (I gave up trying to predict that a long time ago!) although I do think there's a real underground uprising on its way. Bands like Johnny Foreigner and Rolo Tomassi have had great years and I can see people such as Tubelord, Dinosaur Pile-Up and Pulled Apart By Horses (all from the same 'gang') following them through. It's almost like a little brat pack emerging now, spanning a few different genres but all appealing to the same, growing, crowd.

I think it'll be a nice time to return to electronic music. Something like the Prodigy is destined to make a comeback, dont you think?

- what records due in 2009 are you excited about?
Anything by Muse. Melanie Finoa's album as well.

- any new bands you recommend people check out?
INNERPARTYSYSTEM!!!!!!

- [for those in bands/the industry] what projects are you working on / will you be working on in 2009?
Melanie Fiona, Living Things, Lady Sov.
