While we haven't even gotten into my favorite albums of 2010 yet (they're coming!), hands down one of the 2011 releases I am most excited for is from Florida act MillionYoung. Mike Diaz and band were gracious enough to play my CMJ showcase this year and pretty much blow minds any time they are in front of an audience.
Their fab publicist Beth, who sent me the unmastered tracks to devour a few weeks ago, cleverly dubbed their sound "the new wave chillwave" and I have to concur.
The album, titled Replicants is due out on February 16th on Rix/Old Flame records, with a digital release of 1/11/11 (kind of the coolest release date EVER). Sample track Perfect Eyes below to tide you over until then.
