Charts & Adds: Week of 10/15 – 10/22

Well, folks, we have a great bundle of charts and adds alike for you this week! I must say that the new Hovvdy album is absolutely blowing me away, and I hope it has the same effect on our listeners. The music? Excellent. The album art? Uhhh… don’t know how I feel about the creepy, sentient moon, but who am I to judge? Without further ado, here’s what we’ve been spinning this week.

Top 5 Charts:

1.) (Sandy) Alex G – House of Sugar

Though House of Sugar may be Alex G’s ninth album, the artist has not lost any momentum — far from it. This highly-anticipated record is perhaps his most cohesive work yet, somehow both starkly relatable and whimsically fantastic.


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.) 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.

4.) Angel Olsen – All Mirrors

Compared to the brash, bold attitude Olsen has taken toward many of her previous albums, All Mirrors displays a softer, more hesitant side to the artist. The record contains pieces Olsen created in isolation in Anacortes, Washington, many re-imagined with a stunning 12-piece string arrangement.

5.) 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!
