As Foals prepare to unveil their first album, we look at some more debutantes for 2008

Scarlett Johansson
What does your average Hollywood doll do on her days off? Record an album of Tom Waits covers of course with Dave Sitek (see main piece) called Anywhere I Lay My Head. So wrong it could actually be right. (22 May)

Wild Beasts
Domino records hit on another lump of British musical genius, this time the squealing eccentricity of these Lake District-dwelling loons. Tore ‘Franz Ferdinand’ Johansson is on production duties. (Apr)

Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip
The magical verbal diarrhoea of this sardonic beat poet duo is a love or hate proposition thanks to ‘Thou Shall Always Kill’. We love. (Jun)

Glasgow’s most wanted men (and woman) in black have confirmed they’ll unleash an album of their Spector-esque hard luck stories this spring. (26 May)

Last Shadow Puppets
Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys and Mike Kane of The Rascals team up for more indie shrewdness for The Age of the Understatement. (21 Apr)

It feels like it’s been a long time coming, but that’s only because they’ve been bloody marvellous for so long already. Their debut may be many things but one thing it won’t do is disappoint. (5 May)

Crystal Castles
Hooded eight-bit trash-pop duo from Canada? Certainly sir! We have one right here. Ta-da! Self-titled debut album? Yes, here you go! (18 Mar)
