Charts & Adds: Week of 10/23 – 10/30

Happy Halloween-eve KJHK-ers! We have some SCARY good albums on our charts and adds this week. Check some of these out… IF YOU DARE

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Cat Power – Wanderer

At number one this week we have the 10th album from Cat Power, aka Charlyn “Chan” Marshall. “Chan’s mysterious vocal qualities sound fragile and raw, not to be confused with uncertainty or doubt. Cat Power’s latest release is a hard-hitting and powerful response to the often overlooked struggles of being a veteran in indie music.” Read the full review from Miranda Roberts HERE


2.) Yves Tumor – Safe in the Hands of Love

(From a previous week) Safe in the Hands of Love is as powerful as it is unpredictable. Yves Tumor (Sean Bowie) has crafted a truly unique work of avantgarde electronic music, with elements of experimental noise and expressive R&B.


3.) Lala Lala – The Lamb

(From a previous week) 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.


4.) 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.


5.) Baby Jey – Someday Cowboy

(From a previous week) Baby Jey, not to be confused with our own mascot Baby Jay, are a group from Edmonton making dynamic folk-pop. There’s a wide variety of instrumentation on Someday Cowboy that creates a vivid landscape for feelings of nostalgia and reflection.
