Top 5 Charts:

1.) Ian Sweet – Crush Crusher

2.) Grapetooth – Grapetooth

Creating something new and unique inspired by 80’s new wave in 2018 is a tall task, but that’s just what the Chicago-based due Grapetooth have done on their self titled debut album. Clay Frankel (of Twin Peaks) and Chris Bailoni pack all sorts of captivating layers and melodies throughout all ten tracks.


3.) JOJI – Ballads 1

(From a previous week) The singer and producer from Osaka, Joji, showcases his wide variety of talents on his debut album Ballads 1. The album’s down-tempo and melancholic themes blend elements of trap, folk, electronic, and R&B.


4.) BOYO – Dance Alone

Dance Alone is the aptly titled 3rd LP from LA artist and producer BOYO. The album’s lyrics explore a number of darker themes. but overall is about remaining self-aware and looking to the future. That being said, these themes are given a dreamy and catchy background that you can still get down to.


5.) Yowler – Black Dog In My Path

Yowler is the solo project of Maryn Jones, also known for her work in Saintseneca and All Dogs. This album shows that Jones’ unique voice is able to compliment heavy, powerful riffs as well as minimal, gentle melodies, and everything in between.
