Charts & Adds: Week of 8/6 – 8/13

With only two short weeks before the first day of the fall semester, now is the perfect time to chill and listen to some radical new tunes before us college kids get back into the swing of things! Here are some of our current favorites at KJHK.

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Blood Orange – Angel’s Pulse

Angel’s Pulse tops the KJHK charts for a second week. Diverging in several senses from previous works, like Negro Swan, Angel’s Pulse is an eclectic “mix-tape” of sorts, featuring a plethora of collaborators.

2.) Night Moves – Can You Really Find Me

This third album from Minneapolis group Night Moves is perhaps their most dazzling work yet. The dim, neon-illuminated room on the cover of Can You Really Find Me echoes the dreamy, soulful quality of the songs within.

3.) Hippo Campus – Demos II

Birthed during the summer of 2017 and winter of 2018, Demos II is a rough draft of sorts, containing several songs which did not make it onto the album Bambi. Even if they didn’t make the cut, however, these songs hold the same Hippo Campus charm that fans have come to know and love.

4.) Drab Majesty – Modern Mirror

Described as a “Gothic-New Wave” duo, Drab Majesty crafts shimmery synth pop tracks that seem to transcend time and genre. Listening to Modern Mirror is like having an fever dream set in the 80’s (in the best way possible).

5.) Purple Mountains – Purple Mountains

We here at KJHK would like to take a moment to remember the life of David Berman, who passed away last week. Berman was previously a member of Silver Jews and most recently known for his work under the title Purple Mountains. His work meant a great deal to his many fans, and he will be missed.
