Charts & Adds: Week of 4/16 – 4/23

We’ve reached that time of week again! KJHK has another new set of charts & adds full of a wide range of jams to fit any occasion. Dig in to what our DJs have been loving below:

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Nilüfer Yanya – Miss Universe

“In the past two years, British artist Nilüfer Yanya has released two different EP’s, Plant Feed and Small Crimes. She continues her “cool girl” aesthetic in her debut album Miss Universe, which is a concept album that switches between elevator music with omniscient, fuzzy voiceovers and some seriously cool jams, all revolving around relatable feelings of loneliness and defeat. ” Read the full review written by Sasha Artaega HERE.

2.) Mess – Learning How To Talk

[From previous week] 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.

3.) Patio – Essentials

The current era of post-punk is constantly progressing the genre in both instrumentation and songwriting, although the Brooklyn trio Patio take a more minimalist and back to the basics approach on their debut LP Essentials. The chemistry of the members can be heard on the tight arrangements of instrumentation as well as the powerful vocal deliveries. Essentials is full of themes surrounding conflicting emotional forces, and the band does a fantastic job of translating these forces into a cohesive collection of songs.

4.) Priests – The Seduction of Kansas

A punk band from Washington DC with today’s governmental leadership is undoubtedly going to have some politically charged lyrics. Priests has absolutely seduced our lovely mid-western state with beautifully blended elements of dance and punk on songs cleverly written to reflect on what exactly comprises the current definition of American identity.

5.) PUP – Morbid Stuff

Stefan Babcock, vocalist for the Toronto punk outfit PUP, has a unique ability to carry songs gleefully through negative, nihilistic, and self-depreciating lyrics over booming and cathartic punk melodies. Describing Morbid Stuff as either fun or depressing wouldn’t do it justice, and right in the middle of that juxtaposition is exactly where the band thrives.
