Washed Out

Shae DeTar

This week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Luke Bryan charged in at No. 1, selling an impressive 528,000 copies of his latest album, "Crash My Party." It marked the second chart-topper for the country star, who logged a No. 1 earlier this year with "Spring Break… Here to Party."

Outside the top 10 on the Billboard 200 there were a number of movers and shakers. Let's take a look at some of them…

-- Washed Out, "Paracosm" (No. 21): The one-man act (Ernest Greene), earns its second top 40 set and highest charting effort with its second full-length album (13,000; a debut at No. 21). A robust 3,000 copies of the set's first week were vinyl LPs, which enables the title's No. 1 debut on the Vinyl Albums chart.

-- Valerie June, "Pushin' Against a Stone" (No. 41): This is the Concord Records debut for singer-songwriter June, who has previously self-released three "bedroom recordings," as she calls them. The new album, which bows at No. 41, was funded by a 2010 Kickstarter campaign that generated $15,000.

-- Yellowcard, "Ocean Avenue Acoustic" (No. 53): The acoustic redux of the band's best selling album starts with 7,000 copies sold at No. 53 -- with nearly 4,000 coming from downloads. The original album, released on July 22, 2003, eventually peaked at No. 23 the following year, and has sold 1.8 million copies.

-- Kid Rock, "Rebel Soul" (No. 54): Venue sales generated from Kid Rock's recent slate of tour dates in east north central region of the U.S. spur a 230% gain for the album. In turn, it re-enters at No. 54 with 7,000 sold -- with 79% of that sum originating from sales at concerts.

-- The Wild Feathers, "The Wild Feathers" (No. 109): The rock band's debut album bows at No. 109 this week and No. 1 on Heatseekers Albums. The set is supported by the Triple A radio chart hit "The Ceiling," which arrived on the tally back in April. This week, it climbs to a new peak, rising one spot to No. 14.

-- Aubrey O'Day & Brooke Hyland (Nos. 131 and 138): The solo debut album from the Danity Kane's Aubrey O'Day -- "Between Two Evils" -- starts at No. 131 on the Billboard 200, and also struts onto the Heatseekers Albums chart at No. 3. It sold 3,000 copies in its first week, and is exclusively available as a digital album. Danity Kane, which formed on the TV reality show "Making the Band," notched back-to-back No. 1 debuts on the Billboard 200 with their two albums, released in 2006 and 2008… Meanwhile, another TV reality personality, Brooke Hyland, makes her debut this week with her self-titled album. The teenage TV star has gained notoriety for appearing as a dancer on Lifetime's "Dance Moms." Her set arrives at No. 138 on the Billboard 200 and No. 4 on the Heatseekers chart.
