Charts & Adds: Week of 10/29 – 11/5

Remember, remember the 5th of November… Why? Well, because today brings us a Charts & Adds that’s sure to go down in history (much like Guy Fawkes’ infamous plot to destroy the London House of Parliament in 1605). But enough history… let’s get into some tunes!

Top 5 Charts:

1.) 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.


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.) Hovvdy – Heavy Lifter

There is something so heart-wrenchingly familiar about the feeling of wanting to escape your hometown, to move far away and never look back, and Hovvdy captures this feeling in an exceedingly unique way in their third full-length album, Heavy Lifter. Read Ji’s review of the album here!

4.) Black Marble – Bigger Than Life

Like the two albums before it, Black Marble’s Bigger Than Life was created entirely with analog gear. This time, however, artist Chris Stewart used his computer only to record, utilizing live synths for sound. This new Black Marble release is a shimmering study in organized chaos.

5.) (Sandy) Alex G – House of Sugar

Coming off his last record, Rocket — which was full of folk and Americana cuts, as well as that unmistakable Alex G sound — it felt like he could go absolutely anywhere with his next project, and rightly so. House of Sugar, although one track and about 4 minutes shorter than Rocket, feels like a very refined conglomeration of everything Alex G has released to this point.
