Charts & Adds: Week of 12/3 – 12/10

This is it, folks… the last C&A of the semester. It’s been a great run, and we’ve explored a lot of fantastic music together in the past few months. Never fear: We will be back and better than ever next semester! But until then, we here at KJHK hope you have an amazing winter break.

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.) 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.

3.) 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.


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.

5.) Wilco – Ode to Joy

For a band that is already on its 11th studio album, Wilco nonetheless does not fail to impress. Ode to Joy is a departure from many previous Wilco works; the album is more spacious and focuses more heavily on finding the joy in life, rather than simply facing its obstacles.
