Pitchfork: “The Pitchfork Guide to Upcoming Releases: Summer 2013″

The following article was originally published on Pitchfork. We have bolded the releases that we are most anticipating:

“Welcome once again to the Pitchfork Guide to Upcoming Releases, our seasonal guide to upcoming releases. Four times a year, we round up a big ol’ list of albums, singles, EPs, and DVDs set to be unleashed over the coming months, hoping to get you pumped about going out and buying records. (You do still do that, right? RIGHT?) This installment covers summer 2013.

Compiling such a list isn’t easy in this day and age, with different release dates for digital and physical versions of albums, as well as different release dates for different countries. So we tried to stick with North American physical release dates as much as possible, with exceptions as noted. Keep in mind that any of this information could change at any moment.
