Hope all you KU students out there are enjoying your fall break! To welcome you back we’ve got another new set of charts & adds. Here’s what’s been spinning the most at KJHK:
Top 5 Charts:
1.) Lala Lala – The Lamb
At number one the second consecutive week we have Lala Lala. Lillie West, the 24 year old Chicago based songwriter behind Lala Lala is back with their 2nd LP and debut on Hardly Art. The album is “chock full o’ hooks, roaring guitars, and palpable emotion.” Lala Lala will be opening for WHY? at recordBar on Tuesday, November 6th.
2.) BROCKHAMPTON – iridescence
(From a previous week) The hip hop collective’s newest album takes a more artistic turn than their prior Saturation trilogy, with a new lineup and a balance between mosh-pit bangers and melodic moments.
3.) Madeline Kenney – Perfect Shapes
Madeline Kenney’s first album, Night Night at the First Landing, showcased her cleaver lyricism and strong voice. On her sophomore LP, Perfect Shapes, these refined traits are given a new, lush background that allows them to shine.
4.) Swearin’ – Fall into the Sun
Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride are back with another Swearin’ album after releasing their 2012 and 2013 albums. Despite putting things on hold for so long, Fall into the Sun has the two sounding better than ever and is a great step forward in the band’s discography.
5.) Blood Orange – Negro Swan
(From a previous week) “Negro Swan is all about forging on when you don’t feel like you belong. But don’t expect to feel like an outsider, Blood Orange’s 4th LP is as immersive as it is powerful.” Read the full review for Negro Swan written by Miranda Roberts HERE
