Best New Music Releases, Week of 6/26, Vol. II – The Flaming Lips, A Place to Bury Strangers, Light Asylum, Edmund II, Exray’s


On Thursday, we posted Volume One of this week’s Best New Music Releases, featuring new singles from fresh album drops by The Henry Clay People, Ty Segall Band, Beachwood Sparks, Seventeen Evergreen, Milk Maid and Everest.  Volume Two includes new tracks from fresh albums by Jeans Wilder, A Place to Bury Strangers, Light Asylum, Parallels, Edmund II and others.

But first, one of the absolute treats of this year’s Record Store Day was the limited edition vinyl Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends which featured collaborations between the Lips and Ke$ha, Bon Iver, Nick Cave, Yoko Ono, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Erykah Badu, Tame Impala, Prefuse 73, and Neon Indian. The songs that were a result of these collaborations were released in a number of odd formats throughout 2011. The Lips took their favorites and put them into an amazing double album masterpiece that debuted on Record Store Day 2012 via limited edition handmade vinyl albums. Now the album is available via MP3 and CD.
