Media picks of the week: Chromeo, Godzilla and more!

Each week, the editors at iMore take a look at what's available in iTunes and pick their favorite items for your consideration. Our picks don't have to be the newest releases, just stuff that's caught our eye (or our ear) that we'd like to share. This week we have comedy, giant monsters, electro-funk and more!

The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have created some of the most hilarious offbeat comedy to come out of Britain in years, including the zombie sendup Shaun of the Dead, the riff on big-budget action movies Hot Fuzz and the alien invasion goof The World's End. Now you can purchase all three together in this trilogy, which is named after the British ice cream confection that makes a cameo appearance in each film.

The Deadliest Catch Season 10

The Discovery Channel's long-running series tracks the real-life adventures of King Crab fishermen operating in the Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska. We're now at the mid-point of the season as it airs on television, so it's not too late to catch up with a Season Pass. Individual episodes are priced at $2.99 each.

Godzilla: Awakening

With Gareth Edwards' Godzilla in theaters this weekend, it's a great time to check out the comic book from Legendary Comics. It's a prequel that explains how the King of Monsters was awakened at the dawn of the atomic age.

Chromeo - White Women

Montreal duo Chromeo (Dave 1 and P-Thugg) have released their fourth full-length album, and it's a must have if you like their previous work or if you have a soft spot in your heart for 80s-era electro-funk. It's a dance album that will get your ass shaking, but there's an emotional authenticity under some of the macho bravado that's on display here which is meaty enough to sink your teeth into as well. High points include the single "Jealous (I Ain't With It)" and the collaboration with Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick on "Come Alive" and Solange on "Lost on the Way Home."

Chvrches - The Bones of What You Believe (Special Edition)

Glaswegian trio Chvrches debut full-length album has an electro-pop vibe that's almost entirely devoid of guitars. There's a lot of deep emotion in lead singer Lauren Mayberry's delivery of the very poignant lyrics that counterpoint the glossy production value, a little bit of sour to counteract the sweet.

Great stuff. Although I would say Chrome is closer to straight up Disco than funk. I wish they had a "best of" Album.
