Charts & Adds: Week of 3/5 – 3/12

It’s spring break over here at KU, but we’re still keeping things fresh in our new music rotation. Whether you’re chilling on a beach, lodging in the mountains, or simply enjoying the end of a rather brutal winter here in Kansas, there’s sure to be an album to match the mood in our top charts & adds.


Top 5 Charts:

1.) Hand Habits – placeholder

Meg Duffy’s guitar work has garnered major acclaim on collaborations with artists such as The War on Drugs, Mega Bog, William Tyler, among many others. With Duffy’s second album placeholder there’s an undefinable tenderness that echoes with every line sung and every note played.


2.) FEELS – Post Earth

(From previous week) “Punk” is a wide ranging umbrella term, but most fans of almost any related sub-genre should find something to love throughout the 11 tracks that make up Post Earth. The album features a variety of themes surrounding infectious combinations of melodic noise and post-punk, and strikes a perfect balance between the two.


3.) Anemone – Beat My Distance

Anemone is the brainchild of Montreal Native, Chloé Soldevila. Soldevila is a classically trained jazz musician, although she leads the four-piece band through high energy, spontaneous tracks bursting with influences of krautrock, surf pop, and new wave.


4.) Cartwheel – Best Days

(From previous week) Best Days is the debut EP from the Wichita three-piece, Cartwheel. Kristyn Chapman’s emotive lyricism & vocal abilities are pieced together perfectly by mixtures of gentle and fervent instrumentation. The six songs come together naturally to explore a narrative packed with personal and interpersonal reflections.


5.) Y La Bamba – Mujeres

Mujeres is the newest release from singer-songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza, also known as Y La Bamba. The album is a moving and profound exploration of Mendoza’s Latinx identity and how it has influenced their experiences, upbringing, and most of all spirituality.
