B.o.B., Underground Luxury (Grand Hustle/Atlantic)
The Atlanta emcee otherwise known as Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr. is one of the few in the game with balls enough to issue his third and latest studio LP directly before the holidays. Likely it's because he currently has a track off the album that's still rising on Billboard, the bumpin', super catchy whistle-fueled "Headband" featuring 2 Chainz; it's currently resting at No. 13 on the Rap Songs charts and No. 64 on the Hot 100. I'm definitely a fan — or at least, I will be until the radio stations start overplaying it. Check it out after the jump along with the rest of releases on this light week ...

Rolling Stone's David Fricke gave it an almost perfect rating, calling it the best album married visionaries Win Butler and Régine Chassagne have put together thus far. The double album was co-produced by LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, regular Arcade Fire producer Markus Dravs and the band itself, in Jamaica. Video for the title track (replete with giant paper mache heads) after the jump, along with the rest of this week's new releases ...
