It’s been a good year for music so far, with three great albums already released (see list on the right side of the page). As for the rest of the year… the current issue of Rolling Stone lists a bunch of releases due over the next few months. Most of them I have no interest in, but these stood out:
Elvis Costello – Momofuku
Jakob Dylan – Seeing Things
Coldplay – Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends
John Mellencamp – Life, Death, Love and Freedom
Ben Folds – Title TBA
The last one, obviously, has me the most excited. Folds has yet to let me down. I’m also very curious to see what the surprise Elvis Costello CD is all about. He’s done everything from punk to chamber music, big band to ballet… no telling what Momofuku promises.
