I can't remember if that are the new King Gizzard songs I've heard but cannot wait for the new album Spoon, Alt-J, Kendrick, sleepmakeswaves, Gang Of Youths, Lorde, Big Sean, Methyl Ethel, Lana Del Rey, At The Drive-In <33333333 and Sleep Drifter <3333333 are all great
Always cool to see more charts on the site! Especially interesting to get a glimpse of the bigger picture relative to ACI & the like. A lot of love for the top 10, only not familiar with the new Gizz which now I see there's a lot to catch up on. Also nice to see another fan of stuff like Ghost & 105, and I can thank the ACI push for putting me onto the ATDI track.
So I’ve decided to go for a weekly Top 33 songs (just cause I like the number). Anyway the #1 spot this week goes to Joey Bada$$, the piano sample in this song has me hooked and reminiscing about Hip-Hop of old. Love the aggression in the delivery for what is almost a protest song. Another song that has grown on me this past week is What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out? It’s been hanging around for a while and this week I really gave it an extra hard listen. It’s giving me some Editors vibes. The highest New Entry this week is from the new Unearthed darling Ruby Fields. Joined by Glass Animals “Pork Soda” (didn’t know what a Pork Soda was, and was a bit reluctant to Google that), Royal Blood, The Hard Aches, The Babe Rainbow and Jackie Onassis. “Palo Alto” is a song that I probably shouldn’t like as it’s a bit silly but it’s certainly an ear worm.
Very little change at the top of my chart this week and I have finally worked out what other song that Kim Churchill song sounds like. It’s The Auteurs “Lenny Valentino”, I had been trying to work it out for a couple of weeks and then it finally popped into my head about 3am one night this week. I might even nominate it for next week’s QLVG. The New Entries for the week are Tigerilla and Flint Eastwood whose good tracks head straight up the pointy end of the chart. They are also joined by Hey Geronimo, Bishop Briggs and a heavier track from Thornhill.
This week's chart is headed by my tribute to the Great Chris Cornell with his latest single "The Promise" from the movie of the same name heading straight to the top. He will be greatly missed by me and hopefully the unfinished Soundgarden album that was due this year can still be completed.
I may have been a few months late catching onto the Flint Eastwood track "Queen" but now it's storming up my chart. A much more slow rise belongs to TAPZ "Run Don't Run" but it isn't running out of steam yet.
Other than Chris Cornell the new entries belong to Melbourne duo Pierce Brothers, Sampa The Great, Kiwi boys Sachi, the asian pop-esque Danny L Harle's "Me4U" and old timers 311's "Too Much To Think".
A few big changes this week especially at the pointy end. Flint Eastwood's "Queen" takes over the #1 spot. Then we have a few New Entries coming into the Top 10. It was a week where the guitar driven rockier songs saw most of rises.
I would have previously not gone near anything One Direction related with a 10 foot pole. But "Kiwi" from Harry Styles is straight in at Number 2 this week, with something that caught me by surprise at how good it is. I'm now going to have to go back and check out his other solo stuff that I had totally ignored. Nothing But Thieves also entry right up the top. Next comes the probable next big band in Pop-punk Grayscale with "Atlantic". Other new entries included old timers Sum-41, Amine, Briggs and Andy Ward, who is doing Chet Faker better than Nick Murphy does Chet Faker.
Yess someone else on this site is charting REDMERCEDES, awesome <3 Great to see the two Kendrick songs, King Gizzard, Gang of Youths and Glass Animals also. Royal Blood moving up further seems to be a common theme, except on my chart
Intending to listen to Harry Styles' album soon, not totally sure what to expect but intrigued. Really into the new King Gizzard & Royal Blood tracks, latter was actually #41 on my chart this week. Seriously impressed by the Nothing But Thieves track after never finding a big favourite on their first album.
I haven't actually heard much else from that Harry Styles' album, but "Kiwi" is certainly a rocking tune. Very reminiscent of The D4, maybe that's the Kiwi reference to the title. The new Royal Blood song is great too, hoping to hear the rest of the album now.
Lots of changes this week with over 20% of the chart being new entries, But at the top we have a new #1 with Hak Baker's 7AM. Hak Baker has come out of London's grime scene but is definitely not making grime music. 7AM sounds like a Geezer talking over the soundtrack to a spaghetti western but has quickly grown on me with a massive 14 place climb to reach #1 in only it's second week in the chart. Hook, Line & Sinker and Lord Of Lightning also both made big climbs this week to the top end of the chart.
New Entries this week start with a very Oasis sounding Liam Gallagher track "Wall of Glass", then the first single from the latest Rise Against album, followed by the fun debut track from Haiku Hands, the Fooies getting back to their usual style, and then tracks from The National, WAAX and Arcade Fire.
Again, not a lot of movement in my chart this week. Royal Blood get a third song in the chart, with the entry of Look Like You Know. Homemade Dynamite gets in from the new Lorde album as does aussie singer-songwriter Rachel Maria Cox.
A new #1 this week with Rise Against going top. Big moves up the chart from The National and Haiku Hands. Only the 2 new entries this week, one from old timer Paul Kelly and one from relative youngster Lorde (now with 2 songs in the chart).
A big week for Royal Blood hitting the top spot for the 1st time plus adding an extra song to the chart making that 4 charting songs at once. The new Paul Kelly song Firewood and Candles makes a huge 19 place jump up the chart. Plenty of new tracks entering this week. Along with the extra Royal Blood song we have The Belligerents with Flash debuting in the Top 10. Carmouflage Rose's Late Nights track that is so good it's hard to believe it comes out of Brisbane. Then we have Cult Of Helix (Side project of The Jezebels lead-woman), Harrison Kipner, a weird Strange Bones vs Avelino mashup and Hey Geronimo's new single Bad Citizen.
A day early this week with my chart, and there will probably be no edition next week. Not much change at the top, Paul Kelly creeping closer and Carmouflage Rose being the biggest climber in the Top 10.
A new entry from Kardajala Kirridarra, a song sung mainly in an indigenous language. It comes in a few weeks after NAIDOC where the theme this year was Our Languages Matter. (Beatrice Lewis from Haiku Hands is also a member of Kardajala Kirridarra).
Other new entries come from Dizzee Rascal, British India and Sobs.
Paul Kelly continues to hold the reigns at the top of the chart this week. Kele Okereke and Harrison Kipner are the big climbers of the week breaking into the Top 10.
The New Entries this week are from Eric Nally (best known for singing on Macklemore's Downtown) with his track Ruby where he does a great impersonation of the best Michael Jackson impersonator going around at the moment, The Weeknd.
We also have Skepta's Hypocrisy, Semi by Kid Simius and one of the new tracks from Dan Sultan's album.
