Charts & Adds: Week of 2/5 – 2/12

It’s always impressive to see artists shoot to the top of the charts right out of the gate, and few artists are capable of such a feat, but that’s exactly what Girlpool have accomplished this week! There are fresh names all over this week’s top 30 however, so give some new tunes we’ve been loving below a spin!

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Girlpool – What Chaos Is Imaginary

The two amazing songwriters Cleo Tucker and Harmony Trividad are back with their 4th LP, What Chaos Is Imaginary. There aren’t many duos with the ability to harmonize as they can, and this genre spanning album shows the band at their most creative and most ambitious.


2.) Deerhunter – Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?

(From previous week) 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.


3.) Cherry Glazerr – Stuffed & Ready

Clementine Creevy of Cherry Glazerr had this to say about the new album, Stuffed & Ready, “I want this album to evoke a freedom, or you could even say a recklessness in people. I want to allow people to let out all of the fear and anger and confusion that all of us carry around. I want to make people dance, and really f*****g mean it.” Catch Cerry Glazerr and Palehound play at recordBar in Kansas City on 2/27.



4.) Maggie Rogers – Heard It In A Past Life

(From a previous week) Maggie Rogers exploded onto the scene with her viral hit “Alaska” in 2016. Heard It In A Past Life serves as an introduction to Roger’s work as an artist, as well as a way for her to reflect on the past two years of her unique experiences in the industry.


5.) Sneaks – Highway Hypnosis

Many attempts have been made to try and describe the combination of sounds that make up the newest album from Baltimore’s Sneaks, aka Eva Moolchan, but the fact is none of them can do it justice. All we can say over here at KJHK is that this moody hip hop album is well worth a listen.
