The Remix by Lady Gaga — As she approaches the two-year anniversary of her first album, The Fame, this October, Gaga remixes some of its biggest hits (and some from the The Fame Monster). The compilation features work by DJs and producers including Passion Pit and Stuart Price. Out Tuesday.
The Suburbs by Arcade Fire — Hipsters rejoice! The Fire's new album incorporates a theme of contemplation and nostalgia with songs like “We Used to Wait” and “Wasted Hours.” These guys are the best thing to come out of Canada since Céline Dion. Out Tuesday.
“A Happy Place” by Katie Melua — In her hypnotic new video, Melua serves up a dose of decadent surrealism as rebellion against a world of carbon-copy professionals and the endless routine of the urban working world.
