Mark Rogers and Mary Byrne

This week’s new finds from the great beyond:

1. Mark Rogers and Mary Byrne: I Line My Days Along Your Weight (Important, Oct. 14)

Former Hot Young Priest frontwoman Mary Byrne and her husband deliver a spare and truly striking folk LP.

2. Prince: Art Official Age (NPG, Sept. 30) 

The outright funkiest—and yet strangest—mainstream album of 2014. All hail the Purple One.

3. Godflesh: A World Lit Only By Fire (Avalanche, Oct. 7)

The English industri-metal legends sound as vital now as ever. Pummeling and horrific in all the right ways.
