Charts & Adds: Week of 9/18-9/25

It’s officially fall! We’re looking forward to the fun festivities to come, but we’re also excited about all the great new music on the way! The weather’s (hopefully) going to start cooling off, so make some tea, grab a blanket, and cozy up to some of the great tunes we’ve been loving below!

Top 5 Charts:

1.) 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.

2.) Black Belt Eagle Scout – Mother of  My Children

Mother of My Children is the debut album from Saddle Creek’s Black Belt Eagle Scout, a project created by Katherine Paul (aka KP). “Having this identity—radical indigenous queer feminist—keeps me going. My music and my identity come from the same foundation of being a Native woman.” says Paul. The album is eight powerful songs that explore experiences of loss, frustration, and dreams.

3.) Hypoluxo – Running on a Fence

Hypoluxo, out of Brooklyn, NY, are making waves with their second full length album, Running on a Fence. The album is a seamless collection of shoegaze, dream pop, and post-punk. Front-man Samuel Cogen’s voice is described as  “a little mellow with a baritone croon somewhere between Joy Division’s Ian Curtis and The National’s Matt Berninger.” Definitely recommended for fans of both of those bands.  

4.) Spiritualized – And Nothing Hurt

Spiritualized is back with their eighth LP, following up the 2012 release of Sweet Heart, Sweet Light. Spiritualized is known for transcendent and mesmerizing sounds, and this album is no different. And Nothing Hurt has a cinematic quality meticulously crafted by Jason Pierce, aka J. Spaceman.

5.) Shortly – Richmond

Richmond is the debut EP from Detroit artist Alex Maniak. The haunting , yet hopeful 5 tracks are full of powerful harmonies and intense story telling. While Shortly is a solo project, Maniak has plenty of people to bounce ideas of off, including Joe Reinhart of Hop Along, who helped her create songs “the way they sounded in my head.” she says.
