Charts & Adds: Week of 12/1 – 12/8

Top 5 Charts

1.) Nailbiter – Brace

A massive collection spanning tons of different sub-genres of electronic, Brace is a beautiful look into the artistry of the Toronto-based producer.

2.) Cabaret Voltaire – Shadow of Fear

Shadow of Fear is an album that feels frozen in time; it is a contemporary project containing tracks that seem like old-classics.

3.) China Club – Ming + Zhizhi

Ming + Zhizhi is an album that will keep you guessing but also keep you wanting more and more. China Club blends traditional electronic with more unorthodox styles of jazz and hip-hop, all combined to make one of the best electronic releases this year.

4.) Aesop Rock – Spirit World Field Guide

The hip-hop veteran proves himself once again with an album consistent with his entire discography–if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

5.) Camila Fuchs – Kids Talk Sun

Some avant-guard electro-pop with a psychedelic twist.
