Charts & Adds: Week of 9/4-9/11

We’ve had some big streaks broken at KU this weekend, including Mitski’s hold on the number one spot for our most played album of the week. A good shake-up in these charts is always welcome when we’ve got as much good music coming as we do! There’s movement all across the board as well as some big impacting adds from last week so be sure to check out this week’s top 30:

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Wild Nothing – Indigo

Up from number five last week we have the 4th LP from Wild Nothing, Indigo. (From a previous week:) “Indigo is a lush, dreamy collection of 80s-inflected pop. It’s amazing, seriously.”

2.) Saintseneca – Pillar of Na

Making the jump from number 11 last week is Pillar of Na, the latest project from Saintseneca. Zac Little’s ability to create layered, catchy folk-pop tunes is nothing new, but the band is pushed to new territory with this latest release. The band will be performing at the Bottleneck on September 20th.

3.) Mitski – Be The Cowboy

(From previous week:) 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.


4.) The Beths – Future Me Hates Me

(From previous week:) 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.

5.) Foxing – Nearer My God

“Never a band to be easily classified into a definitive genre, the group even further distorts these boundaries in Nearer My God. This LP is uncharacteristically upbeat (almost manic) but does not sacrifice the band’s penchant for raw intensity and poignant lyrics.” Read the full review for Nearer My God written by Jaya Chakka HERE. Foxing will be performing at the Bottleneck on September 27th.
