Charts & Adds: Week of 10/22 – 10/29

This is not a drill: It’s almost Halloween! I, for one, am getting fully into the spooky spirit. Although, I haven’t totally committed to a costume… (If you’re in the same boat, might I suggest checking out these cute costume ideas for duos that our content staff came up with?) While I’m figuring that out, let’s take a look at this week’s charts and adds!

Top 5 Charts:


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.

2.) girl in red – beginnings

Marie Ulven Ringheim, the young Norwegian artist behind girl in red, is already making waves in the bedroom pop scene at the young age of 20. Combining two previous EPs into one cohesive album, girl in red’s beginnings is an energetic exploration of longing, heartbreak, and the bittersweet process of accepting one’s identity.

3.) Electric Guest – Kin

Though Billboard has described Kin as an attempt by Electric Guest to “dive headfirst into the mainstream,” this new release does not compromise the group’s well-established sound. Kin is upbeat and groovy, reminiscent of the early 2000’s music scene in the best ways possible.

4.) Danny Brown – uknowwhatimsayin¿

Even though Danny Brown is nearing 40 and uknowwhatimsayin¿ marks his fifth studio album, the record is anything but routine. This new release is executive produced by Q-Tip, yielding an interesting mixture of old-school charm and innovative weirdness.

5.) 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.
