Here at KJHK, we’re starting the semester off with a bang! It’s been an absolutely phenomenal week for music, charts and adds alike. Check out what we’ve been spinning below.
Top 5 Charts:
1.) Clairo – Immunity
Though Clairo had already gained a great deal of acclaim with early songs such as “Pretty Girl,” debut album Immunity marks a clear maturation in the young artist’s sound. She doesn’t shy away from hard topics, relying more heavily on her vocals than ever before to pack the tracks with emotion.
2.) Florist – Emily Alone
As the title suggests, this Florist record shines a spotlight on the group’s lead singer, Emily Sprague. Emily Alone is at many times peaceful, at others absolutely heart-wrenching. The record proves that simplicity can be truly beautiful.
3.) Blood Orange – Angel’s Pulse
Blood Orange is displaced from the number one spot on the chart after a three week run. 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.
4.) Ada Lea – what we say in private
After going through a difficult breakup, Alexandria Levy (stage name Ada Lea) based what we say in private on a series of journal entries. Organic and intimate, this record contrasts pain and love, sadness and hope.
5.) Cuco – Para Mí
After surviving a near-fatal car crash, the members of Cuco realized that they had lost most of the files containing the music which would have become their debut album. Para Mí was born as the group metaphorically rose from the ashes, a cathartic, healing project that sounds more cheerful than one might expect.
