This week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories" held on at No. 1 for a second week, shifting 93,000 copies (down 73%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. It marked only the third album in this year to spend two weeks at No. 1, and only the second to debut at the top and hold for a second frame. Earlier in 2013, Mumford & Sons' 2012 release "Babel" returned to No. 1 following its Grammy Award win for album of the year, and Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" spent it first three weeks at No. 1.

Elsewhere on the Billboard 200 this week there were a number of movers and shakers, as usual. Let's take a look at some of them:

-- Paul McCartney and Wings, "Wings Over America" - No. 22 - Paul McCartney's reissue series with Concord Records continues with "Wings Over America," which flies back onto the tally at No. 22 with 17,000 sold (up from essentially nothing the week previous). It moves slightly more than the opening week of his last reissue, 2012's "Ram," which re-entered at No. 24 on June 9 of last year.

-- Bastille, "Haunt" (EP) - No. 104 - Tipped as an act to watch last month in our weekly Bubbling Under feature, British rock band Bastille arrives at No. 1 this week on Heatseekers Albums and No. 104 on the Billboard 200 with its debut EP Haunt.

The digital-exclusive set sold 4,000 downloads in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and also starts at No. 21 on Alternative Albums.

The four-song EP features the single "Pompeii," which is gaining traction at alternative radio and is bubbling under the threshold of the Alternative airplay chart. The tune was a smash in the group's homeland, reaching No. 2 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart earlier this year.

-- Laura Marling, "Once I Was An Eagle" - No. 49 - The British musician's latest album also takes a bow at No. 4 on Folk Albums, shifting a career-high 8,000. It's her fourth set to reach the tally, and is surpassed only by her last release, 2011's "A Creature I Don't Know" (No. 3).

-- Snow Patrol, "Greatest Hits" - No. 113 - The album, released only in North America, contains all but one of the band's nine top 10 Triple A chart hits. (It lacks 2007's No. 6 single "You're All I Have.") This is the second hits package for the act, following 2009's Up To Now, which debuted and peaked at No. 182. The new set's CD is exclusive to Best Buy, while the digital version of the album is widely available.

-- Carole King, "Tapestry" - No. 130 - With 3,000 sold (up 32%), the classic No. 1 album re-enters at No. 130 and logs its highest sales week since February. It benefits from the May 28 premiere of the PBS special "Carole King: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize in Performance at the White House."

-- Tricky, "False Idols" - No. 149 - The dance/electronic music veteran returns with his first charting set since 2008's "Knowle West Boy" debuted and peaked at No. 147. His 2010 album, "Mixed Race," missed the big chart, but reached No. 11 on Dance/Electronic Albums. The new set enters at No. 5 on the latter tally -- his fourth top 10 on that list.

-- Keith Jarrett/Gary Peacock/Jack DeJohnette, "Somewhere" - No. 177 - "Somewhere" is the latest in the trio's long-running collaborative albums, which stretch back to 1983's Standards, Vol. 1. On Traditional Jazz Albums, the set enters at No. 3. Since the Jazz chart became a weekly SoundScan-powered list in 1993, Jarrett has logged 19 top 10s. In that span of time, only Miles Davis (with 23) and Tony Bennett (20) have claimed more.
