Charts & Adds: Week of 11/27 – 12/4

It may be stop week, but we’re going to keep things playing over here at KJHK. If you need to escape the reality of finals, try giving some of these albums a try:

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Our Girl – Stranger Today

The three-piece group from Brighton, UK are at number one this week with their debut full-length Stranger Today. Each member’s playing style is complementary to each other’s strengths, making for a moody, dynamic, and satisfying listen.

2.) BOYO – Dance Alone

(From previous week) 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.


3.) Grapetooth – Grapetooth

(From previous week) 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.


4.) Part Time – Spell #6

“Part Time’s sound from the beginning has been on the complete end of the spectrum of modern pop/alternative music. Where other bands opt for gnashing guitar chords and earsplitting drums, Part Time operates within the lo-fi, mellow sphere” Read the full review written by Sasha Arteaga HERE



5.) Ian Sweet – Crush Crusher

(From a previous week) Ian Sweet has always been an outlet both creatively and emotionally for Jilian Medford. On her debut LP, she turns these dense and compassionate feelings into a beautiful arrangement of songs that span a unique range of sounds and genres.
