Charts & Adds: Week of 12/4 – 12/11

Here they are! The last official set of charts and adds of 2018. We’ve had some amazing records come through to grace our airwaves, and we hope that some of them have found a place in your own personal rotation as well. Here’s to a great year of music and another one to follow!

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Foxwarren – Foxwarren

“While Foxwarren has an original sound, their makeup is a rock and roll classic: a group of siblings and childhood friends who formed a band in college. The band delivers themes of desire and loneliness through sincere melodies that will have you swaying for days.” Read the full review written by Miranda Roberts HERE

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.) Our Girl – Stranger Today

(From previous week) 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.


5.) 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
