Charts & Adds: Week of 10/1 – 10/8

Happy Tuesday, everyone! October is in full swing, which means that for many of us, midterms are looming. Make sure to get plenty of sleep, stay hydrated, and check out our latest adds while you study for your tests!

Top 5 Charts:

1.) Jay Som – Anak Ko

Though Jay Som’s previous album, Everybody Works, is a tough record to top, the artist has continued to gain momentum with Anak Ko. As the indie music scene becomes more and more dominated by powerful, talented women, Jay Som is undoubtedly one of the leading forces. Read our review of the album here!

2.) BROCKHAMPTON – Ginger

BROCKHAMPTON’s Ginger is somehow both raw and mature, a bit more melancholy than many of their previous works. The record is vulnerable, painting a picture of many of the very real issues the band’s members have personally experienced.

3.) Chastity Belt – Chastity Belt

Chastity Belt’s eponymous album, their most well-developed yet, further cements their role among the other powerful women of rock. Chastity Belt is an introspective collection of songs that exude a quiet sort of power and affirmation.

4.) Steve Lacy – Apollo XXI

Following a highly-acclaimed series of demos/singles and features with bands the likes of Vampire Weekend, Blood Orange, and Mac Miller, The Internet’s Steve Lacy finally steps into the music scene with debut album Apollo XXI. An interesting mix of bedroom pop and hip-hop, the record is an interesting progression in Lacy’s musical career.

5.) Frankie Cosmos – Close It Quietly

In the fourth Frankie Cosmos record, lead singer Greta Kline explores the joys and perils of being in one’s twenties. Like many other artists who break into the music scene at a young age, the members of Frankie Cosmos have taken to music to make sense of young adulthood.
