New Releases 12/04: COLDPLAY, JOHNNY CASH, ISRAEL VIBRATION & More…

From the title, it may be easy to think that there is a real depth to the list of new releases for the first Friday in December, but you will probably be surprised to find a rather short list this week. Besides Coldplay, Johnny Cash and Israel Vibration, there is also a new album coming out from Tom Jones. There are also some collections being released by Bruce Springsteen and Them. Other than these six, there is not much else to speak of, but I did manage to find a few more to get the list over the ten album mark.

  • Alan Vega (feat. Alex Chilton + Ben Vaughn- “Cubist Blues”
  • Bruce Springsteen- “The Ties That Bind: The River Collection”                 (box set)
  • Coldplay- “A Head Full Of Dreams”
  • Earthrise Soundsystem- “Awakening: Earthrise Soundsystem Project”
  • G-Eazy- “When It’s Dark Out”
  • Israel Vibration- “Play It Real”
  • Johnny Cash- “Man In Black: Live In Denmark 1971”
  • JR & PH7- “The Standard”
  • Rick Ross- “Black Market”
  • Them- “The Complete Them: 1964-1967”              (box set)
  • Tom Jones- “Long Lost Suitcase”

This is the relatively short list of new releases for this Friday, December 4th. I will have the difficult task of choosing one of these albums for a review, and I am pretty sure it won’t be a box set. Check-back on Saturday to see which album I pick and to read the review. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!!
