Charts n’ Adds: 8/24/15 – 9/1/15

This week at KJHK, an unexpected artist has taken our number one spot: Golden Eels. Periscopes in the Air, Golden Eels’ debut album that has killed it here at KJHK is an indie rock work conscious of the power of comedy, kindness, and cats. Following up Golden Eels is Wilco, with their entrancing LP, Star Wars. Then another unexpected Top 5 album, Welcome Back To Milk, from Du Blonde. At number four, the smexy and steamy Alpine album, Yuck. Rounding out the top 5 is a personal favorite of mine from recent release history: Ratatat’s gorgeous 5th LP, Magnifique.
