Another week, another set of charts & adds here at KJHK. Find out what we’ve been loving this week as well as what we’re excited to get on air!
Top 5 Charts:
1.) Better Oblivion Community Center – Better Oblivion Community Center
Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst certainly have a knack for poignant songwriting in all of their musical endeavors. The two teamed up to create Better Oblivion Community Center, a folk-rock album that plays to both of the musicians’ strengths in crafting songs that capture a unique atmosphere of escapism.
2.) 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.
3.) Hand Habits – placeholder
(From previous week) 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.
4.) Julia Jacklin – Crushing
The 10 tracks that make up Julia Jacklin’s 2nd album show her turning the intense feelings of romance and reflection into beautiful songs of self-discovery and vulnerability. While Jacklin’s strengths as a songwriter shine through, she also shows growth in crafting melodies to match her impeccable lyricism.
5.) HOMESHAKE – Helium
“Some of the greatest ideas are results of introversion and boredom. The Montreal-native returns after two years since his latest release, assuring his fans that he was busy doing “nothing.” HOMESHAKE reminds listeners that solitude is a virtue through their limp beat, experimental R&B album, Helium.” Read the full review written by Caroline McCone HERE
