I may not be in Kansas anymore, but my house DID come dangerously close to being sucked up in a tornado this week. (Okay… not that close at all, really, but it felt like it…) Need some new tunes to distract you from the weird weather? Look no further than our weekly dose of charts and adds:
Top 5 Charts:
1.) Soccer Mommy – color theory
Soccer Mommy’s sophomore album somehow manages to be both brighter and darker than her debut, Clean. color theory is an exploration in growth, encapsulating the young artist’s rise to indie fame and the struggles that have arisen as a result.
2.) Kevin Krauter – Full Hand
On his sophomore album, Full Hand, Indiana musician Kevin Krauter tackles complicated emotional states and ideas through elliptical songwriting that is at once poetic and truthful. It’s an album that is a holistic look at a human life in progress–personal flaws mean everything until they suddenly don’t.
3.) Franc Moody – Dream in Colour
Franc Moody’s sound is contemporary funk, awash with electronic inspiration, human touches, and throbbing grooves and via the tight-knit warehouse rave scene of London to where they are today.
4.) Car Seat Headrest – “Can’t Cool Me Down” [Single]
In 2020, Car Seat Headrest is reinventing itself. This first single release from their upcoming album Making a Door Less Open (their first release in four years) marks a shift from their well-established sound within the realm of gritty rock to their new experimentation in electronic music.
5.) Ratboys – Printer’s Devil
Upheaval and change are themes spread throughout the songs on Printer’s Devil, the latest Ratboys LP. Singer-songwriter Julia Steiner embraces moments of uncertainty as a necessary part of growing.
