On the hip-hop front, Talbi Kweli's 'Eardrum' album is coming out in July and if there's a few more tracks as good as the ones i've already heard - 'Say Something' and 'Listen' - it could be a cracker. Kanye West's 'Graduation' comes out in the Autumn/Winter and Common's got one done and dusted. The Beastie Boys are back too but its an all instrumental album.
On the indie boys with their guitars front there's Editors 'An End Has a Star' this month, their better American equivalent, Interpol with 'Our Love to Admire' in July. White Stripes with 'Icky Thump' this month too and Ash's 'Twilight of the Innocents' also in June.

On the Alt country front Ryan Adams, there's 'Easy Tiger' this month.
