Charts & Adds: Week of 3/19 – 3/26

The madness that comes with the month of March is nearly over, but we’re loving all of the great tunes that came out this month. This week we have Australian singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin at number one, but you can check out what else we’ve been loving below!

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Julia Jacklin – Crushing

(From previous week). 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.

Julia Jacklin will be performing with Black Belt Eagle Scout at recordBar in Kansas City on 5/11


2.) 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.


3.) Sasami – Sasami

Sasami Ashworth has been making a name for herself as an exciting, versatile multi-instrumentalist as a member of a number of bands featuring Cherry Glazerr, Froth, and more. With her self-titled debut album, Ashworth more than proves her capability in leading the charge, crafting her own unique sound and aesthetic. The album doesn’t revolve one specific theme or feeling, but offers us a vivid insight to Ashworth’s thought processes & emotions.


4.) Better Oblivion Community Center – Better Oblivion Community Center

(From previous week) 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.


5.) 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.
