Charts & Adds: Week of 5/12 – 5/19

Summer break is here, and we’ve got a funky fresh batch of charts and adds for a fantastic summer soundtrack!

Top 5 Charts:

Heaven To A Tortured Mind

1.) Yves Tumor – Heaven to a Tortured Mind

Few projects at the forefront of contemporary art truly push visceral sonic boundaries in the way that Yves Tumor does on Heaven To A Tortured Mind. Yves has steered the project into a whole new realm; piercing through contradiction, redefining expression through song, and catapulting the project into the next phase of illusion and evolution.

2.) Thundercat – It Is What It Is

One funky dude, Thundercat has created another deliriously groovy and hilarious odyssey of funk, R&B, jazz and hip hop, featuring Steve Lacy, Flying Lotus, Childish Gambino and more.

3.) Peach Pit – You and Your Friends

Peach Pit get emotional throughout the album with a sad-pop spin over bubblegum-surf rock melodies. Every song acts as an individual story with an individual world. Whether they’re detailing heartbreak, social distancing, or companionship, Peach Pit remain meticulous and descriptive.

4.) Music Band – Celebration

The trust built between Music Band members Harry Kagan, Lee Putney, and Duncan Shea comes from a bond of friendship that feels rare among young rock and roll bands. They spent years self-booking, self-recording and self-promoting, creating an invaluable work ethic. And perhaps the most important factor is that je ne sais quoi: a mixture of sincerity and never taking themselves too seriously.

5.) Why Bonnie – Voice Box [EP]

Blair Howerton started songwriting as a coping mechanism during her formative years. Her vivid lyricism has bloomed into the dazzling, full-band emotional release known as Why Bonnie. The band’s Fat Possum Records debut EP, Voice Box, celebrates unhindered expression via beguiling, propulsive guitar pop.
