New Music Spotlight: The xx and The Flaming Lips Return

The xx (I See You) and The Flaming Lips (Oczy Mlody) are among albums to consider buying on Friday, January 13, 2017.

The first music shopping week in 2016 was particularly quiet.  Arguably, the biggest release of note was an EP by rock band Halestorm (Reanimate 3.0: Covers EP).  The second release date in January – Friday the 13th BTW – is stronger.  There are no surefire hits, but the week brings new efforts from The xx (I See You) and The Flaming Lips (Oczy Mlody) among others.
