Newsflash: there are other records coming out this year besides Lady GaGa. And some of them, in my opinion anyway, should be even more hotly anticipated.

Bonus: most of them wear pants!

Here's a list of the Most Anticipated Indie Album Releases of 2011 (so far). Take a look, vote, and let us know who's left out.

Bright Eyes,
1 of 12
Fresh from a series of solo projects, Conor Oberst reunites with Mike Mogis and Nate Walcott for the 7th Bright Eyes record. High school students with displaced angst now can breathe a sigh of relief - but so can everyone else, as few others craft songs that so aptly capture the complex and personal emotions of being a human in modern day America with such a firm grasp of our musical roots.

Some bands write for themselves, some for their audience - with Oberst, we're never quite sure: his songs have the unique quality of expressing both confidence and insecurity at the same time.

Coming February 15th on Saddle Creek, available for preorder now.
