We nearly had a three-way tie for the number one spot, but this week it belongs to Deerhunter. Plenty of new albums have made their way onto this week’s top 30 though, so check out some other chart-climbers below!
Bradford Fox’s philosophical and unpredictable songwriting has had a wide range of sounds and instrumentation backing him over Deerhunter’s 7 previous full length albums, and Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? gives him a clean, well put together environment to express these thoughts clearly.
2.) Toro Y Moi – Outer Peace
Contemporary hip hop, funk, Eurodance, and ambient elements can all be found on the 10 songs that make up Outer Peace, the newest release from Chaz Bear’s Toro Y Moi. The album manages to push boundaries while not taking itself too seriously, and has a lot of fun doing so.
3.) Sharon Van Etten – Remind Me Tomorrow
“Remind Me Tomorrow is just as the name implies, the world is beautiful but there are times when you are too busy or overwhelmed to enjoy and experience that. Van Etten explores new ways to deal with emotions in our grab-and-go lifestyles.” Read the full review written by Miranda Roberts HERE
4.) Juliana Hatfield – Weird
Juliana Hatfield has had much to say over the vast amounts of albums that have come before 2019’s Wierd, but this album shows Hatfield doing what she does best in expressing herself through music.
5.) Holy Golden – Sleepwalkers In The Milky Way
Sleepwalkers In The Milky Way is a world all its own, inspired by the lonely terrain of gilded Americana. Holy Golden’s dreamy, 90’s alternative sound matches the nomadic lifestyle of the duo behind the name.
