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.
1. The xx, I See You
Electronic, alternative collective The xx returns with its third LP, I See You. I See You arrives after a five-year hiatus (Coexist, 2012). Ahead of the 10-track effort, The xx released two singles: “On Hold” and “Say Something Loving.”
2. The Flaming Lips, Oczy Mlody
Veteran experimental-psychedelic rock band The Flaming Lips returns with their first new album in more than two years, Oczy Mlody. Oczy Mlody follows up late 2014 LP, With a Little Help from My Fwends. Interestingly, Miley Cyrus appeared on that album as well as this one (“We a Famly”). 12 tracks deep, four singles were released prior to the album: “How??”, “Sunrise (Eyes of the Young),” “The Castle” & “We a Famly.”
Also Released (1.13.17): Bonobo, Migration [Ninja Tune]; Danny Gokey, Rise [BMG Rights Management]; ONE OK ROCK, Ambitions [Fueled by Ramen]; PnB Rock, GTTM: Goin Thru the Motions [EMPIRE/Atlantic]
