The Flaming Lips’ latest cover album, Playing Hide and Seek with the
Ghosts of Dawn, is a song-by-song remake of King Crimson’s 1969 classic,
In the Court of the Crimson King. Naturally, it’s only available on
hard-to-get, limited-edition colored vinyl.

Oklahoma City psych rockers The Electric Primadonnas have been in
hibernation for what feels like a couple of years, only emerging from
their slumber for the occasional show or to leak a rough cut of a track.

Atlanta rapper T.I. has released Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head,
his eighth studio album and the first since his most recent stint in
prison. The title is no doubt a reference to his legal troubles on
federal weapons charges, but it also makes reference to the Marvin Gaye
song of the same name, which is sampled in the album’s opening track.
