THE FLAMING LIPS - Oczy Mlody - Warner Bros
Produced by the band and their long-time producer Dave Fridmann, the highly anticipated album is the follow-up to The Flaming Lips' globally acclaimed 2013 album, The Terror.
On Oczy Mlody, The Lips return to form with an album no less experimental in nature, but perhaps more melodically song-oriented, recalling the best parts of their most critically applauded albums The Soft Bulletin and the gold-certified Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots. The album is released in several configurations: a 12-song CD, a 12-song double-LP vinyl edition - pressed on colored vinyl and an 11-song single-LP vinyl edition (both of which include a digital download card of all 12 songs on Oczy Mlody), There is also a 7" red vinyl single of the band's cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" b/w "Jest (There Is...)".
RUN THE JEWELS - Run The Jewels 3 [Indie Exclusive Low Price] - Run The Jewels Inc.
The third LP (not including cat-related material) from the duo of El-P and Killer Mike includes contributions from Danny Brown, Zack de la Rocha, Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio), Boots, and Kamasi Washington.
THE XX - I See You - Young Turks
I See You is marked by a tonal shift to something close to pure, crisp pop structure, adorned by unusual crescendos that echo a dextrous DJ inching their dancer toward climax without ever quite lifting the house lights. Its lyric sheet moves from the danger and hopelessness of love to its deliciousness and rapture; a move into a more outward looking proposition. I See You is recognizably still The XX but is now powered by the voluble ambition of its three perfect counterweights to one another starting to not just realize but harness their full potential. You might even want to think of the decisive move from Joy Division to New Order here, too.
BONOBO - Migration - Ninja Tune
Simon Green aka Bonobo returns with his sixth album, the masterful, magisterial Migration - a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and beyond. By turns lush, manic, beautiful, melancholy, joyful, and packed with both emotion and technical skill, this is perhaps his most ambitious attempt yet to capture the very textures of human existence in his work, as Green says of the broad dynamics on the album, "Life has highs, lows, loud and quiet moments, beautiful ones and ugly ones. Music is a reﬂection of life." In particular, there is a theme here of migration, eruditely put by Green as "The study of people and spaces," he expands, "It's interesting how one person will take an inﬂuence from one part of the world and move with that inﬂuence and effect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of new places evolve." It is a theme with a personal as well as a sociological aspect to it.
TOM CHAPLIN - The Wave - Arts & Crafts
The debut solo album from the former Keane frontman. Tom Chaplin has called the process of recording a solo album a "daunting prospect for someone who knows nothing else". Following the band's split, Chaplin began using drugs due to anxiety over the album and "thought [he] was going to die" in early 2015: "When I finally liberated myself from years of spiraling addiction, a place of inspiration and creativity became available to me. I set about writing an album that documents my transition from the darkest recesses of human experience to a place of resolution, fulfillment and happiness. At long last I am comfortable in my own skin and have achieved that elusive dream of writing a set of songs I can truly call my own."

*Previously unavailable on CD
** Previously unreleased
The two-disc set features 40 songs from Prince's tenure with Warner Bros. Records and features recordings from all of his albums between 1978's For You and 1992's Love Symbol Album. It is the first Prince collection to include his number-one hit single "Batdance" from the soundtrack album to the 1989 film Batman as well as being the first official release of the song "Moonbeam Levels", which had previously circulated on bootlegs of Prince's unreleased material in a low-quality form. The song had been recorded in 1982 during the sessions for 1999 and was subsequently considered for the unreleased 1989 album Rave unto the Joy Fantastic.-Wikipedia
