Wire

Change Becomes Us

(Pink Flag)

This British post-punk band returned to unfinished material from 1979-1980 — arguably its most productive period — for this new studio release. Opener “Doubles & Trebles” admittedly sounds like it was written decades ago. But the band sounds invigorated playing the tune and the tracks here retain the era’s angst while simultaneously suggesting a certain maturity.

A Royal Affair

(Magnolia Home Entertainment)

Based on a true story, this Dutch period piece about a young queen (Alicia Vikander) who became a local hero despite her infidelity was rightly nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar.

Veep: The Complete First Season

(HBO)

After the inexorable sit-com The New Adventures of Old Christine, Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns to form in this irreverent spoof in which she portrays a vice president without any scruples.
