Charts & Adds: Week of 9/3 – 9/10

Is anyone else desperately wishing the weather would cool down for good so fall festivities can commence? While this may not be happening any day soon, fear not; KJHK will still be spinning plenty of cool tunes in the meantime. Keep it locked in, folks.

Top 5 Charts:

Image result for clairo immunity cover

1.) Clairo – Immunity

Clairo holds down the number one spot for a third consecutive week. Debut album Immunity marks a clear maturation in this 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.) Angie McMahon – Salt

Angie McMahon makes a stunning break into the music scene in Salt, demonstrating her ability to merge powerful, emotive lyrics with instrumental backing that ranges from low-key to power-packed. The record is as vulnerable as it is intense.

3.) 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.

4.) 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.

5.) Softee – Slow Melt [EP]

Softee is the creation of Nina Grollman, who has been described as a “gay pop top.” Slow Melt combines synth-pop instrumentals with Grollman’s soulful voice for a stunning debut EP.
