>Jenny Lewis – The Voyager CD/LP (WB)
This is the former Rilo Kiley frontwoman’s third solo album and first in six years, following 2006's
Rabbit Fur Coat (with The Watson Twins) and 2008's Acid Tongue. The Voyager's rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but three of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis' longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice.

>Shabazz Palaces – Lese Majesty CD/2xLP+MP3 (Sub Pop)
Lese Majesty is the second album the Seattle-based experimental hip-hop group featuring Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael Butler, formerly of Digable Planets) and Fly Guy 'Dai (aka Tendai Maraire). The album is not a launching pad for the group's fan base increasing propaganda. It is a series of astral suites, recorded happenings, shared.
