Charts & Adds: Week of 8/21-8/28

We have some new faces on our top 30 charts for this week as well as some familiar favorites. Check ‘em out along with our new adds!

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Mitski – Be The Cowboy

Last week’s top add is this week’s #1! Be the Cowboy is Mitski’s fifth studio album, and a fantastic addition to her already impressive discography. Whether a full band is playing or it’s just Mitski and her piano, each of the fourteen tracks hits you in a way that only she can.

2.) The Beths – Future Me Hates Me

The Beths are an exciting four-piece band out of New Zealand. Future Me Hates Me is energetic and catchy, and front woman Elizabeth Stokes’ reflective and self-critical lyrics give the band a strong emotional edge.

3.) Basement Revolver – Heavy Eyes

We have another debut album at number three with Heavy Eyes by Canadian dream pop band Basement Revolver. The album is filled with playful melodies that are contrasted with fuzzed out guitar tones and weary, heartfelt lyrics.

4.) Free Cake For Every Creature – The Bluest Star

The Bluest Star is some sweet soft pop from Philadelphia band Free Cake For Every Creature (one of our favorite band names here at KJHK). The album a bit tidier than their previous works but still keeps that DIY charm.

5.) Tanukichan – Sundays

Down from number one the past two weeks is Sundays by Tanukichan. (From last week) “Sundays is a relaxing and reflective blend of shoe-gaze and dream pop that is perfect for any summer setting.”
