Charts & Adds: Week of 2/12 – 2/19

Girlpool holds on to their number one spot this week despite some strong competition! Plenty of new albums have made their top 30 debuts this week, and we’ve got some exciting new adds as well. See what’s new below!


Top 5 Charts:

1.) Girlpool – What Chaos Is Imaginary

(From previous week) The two amazing songwriters Cleo Tucker and Harmony Trividad are back with a new album, 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.) Toro Y Moi – Outer Peace

“Outer Peace is a cleverly-crafted, pleasantly mid-fi album of melancholy grooves that Toro y Moi uses as a medium to tell us his stellar keys to what it takes to achieve peace on the outside.” Read the full review written by Caroline McCone HERE


3.) Cherry Glazerr – Stuffed & Ready

(From previous week) 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.) 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.


5.) Cass McCombs – Tip of the Iceberg

The ninth studio album from the established songwriter Cass McCombs shows him still pushing himself creatively while maintaining a strong sense of purpose. The unique mix of sounds are matched with equally powerful lyrics & emotion.
