Charts & Adds: Week of 4/3 – 4/9

Whether you have a case of spring fever or you just undergo a feverish twitching while waiting for your weekly Charts And Adds, fear no more! It is warm outside and that means it is time for some sweet new tunes; see what our DJ’s have been digging this week!

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Sasami – Sasami

[From previous week] 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. Ashworth more than proves her capability in leading the charge, crafting her own unique sound and aesthetic with her self-titled debut. The album doesn’t revolve one specific theme or feeling, but offers us a vivid insight to Ashworth’s thought processes & emotions.

2.) Karen O & Danger Mouse – Lux Prima
[From previous week] Lux Prima is the collaborative effort between two critically acclaimed and massively accomplished musicians. Despite each artist’s expansive catalog, it was impossible to tell what the two would come up with in the studio. The result is a journey led by Karen O’s impressive and timeless vocal abilities through a dense and luscious soundscape.3.) Mess – Learning How To Talk
This Kansas City quartet has its roots in a KU dorm room, where Allison Gliesman started recording music on an iPhone. The group takes real struggles and gives them a real spin that will not only make these topics digestible, but enjoyable. Prepare to get swallowed in the beauty that is pain.
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.) Nilüfer Yanya – Miss Universe

[From previous week] Nilüfer Yanya, the UK-based songwriter, has made quite an impact with her debut album Miss Universe. Yanya has a unique vocal annotations that take each genre spanning track to a whole new level. Miss Universe is a stunning collection of beautifully written songs exploring a vivid world of art pop.
