Things are starting to wind down for the semester here at KJHK, but never fear! We have plenty more exciting things on the horizon, even before the semester (and the DECADE) ends. For now, check out this week’s charts and adds.
Top 5 Charts:
1.) 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.
2.) Men I Trust – Oncle Jazz
After nearly two years of teasers for the album, Men I Trust finally released Oncle Jazz earlier this fall. The record in full lasts an entire 71 minutes, and, as the title suggests, it’s as smooth and funky as it is an indie staple.
3.) 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.
4.) DIIV – Deceiver
This third record from shoegaze group DIIV (pronounced “dive”) is a soaring, lush collection of ten songs. Deceiver studies the harsh realities of addiction, following the struggles of recovering frontman Zachary Cole Smith.
5.) 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.
