IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 6/1/20
Edition No.530
Songs retire at 75 weeks

First chart of the new decade! Sadly there aren't any artists as yet that have charted in all three decades of the chart's existence (wow that makes me feel old), the closest I think I come to that is MGMT and Tame Impala. In any event it's business as usual for Two People with a few changes in the top 10 as some of the big hits begin to drop away.

The first entries of each decade have been "Percussion Gun" by White Rabbits and the live version of "Call Me" by Franz Ferdinand featuring La Roux, which may seem on brand and slightly anticlimactic. However fast forwarding 10 years later and te first entry of the 2020s is titled "i'll die anyway." by girl in red, who managed an entry last year also. It's a catchy start to the decade/year and it's #29.

I didn't find his album to be as consistent as I would have liked but credit to Michael Kiwanuka for another entry. His third to date on this chart is "Living In Denial", it's very catchy, and it's #38.

Wasn't sure whether or not to credit Kanye West but since it would be inconsistent with how basically everyone has treated the "IGOR" credits I decided against it. In case you hadn't figured it out, Tyler, The Creator has another entry as I'm quite enjoying his album. "PUPPET" is #43, his 6th entry.

Duster are a band that have seemingly done a Slowdive / My Bloody Valentine / The Avalanches and have put out a record after nearly two decades on hiatus. I especially enjoy the drums on this track as the way they're produced/recorded make them sound so huge. "I'm Lost" is the band's first entry and it's #47.

Following on from them is another American band in for the first time, but one with a screamier/punkier sound going on. Dogleg come through with "Fox" at #53.

I managed to squeeze Gesaffelstein's album into my busy listening schedule this past fortnight and despite the fact that it's ancient I wanted to chart this neat instrumental. "Vortex" is his 4th entry to date at #60.

yep, I cannot deny that "Suge" by DaBaby is super catchy and simply had to give it a debut. Just a few weeks ago he had never been in the chart but now he has one entry each in two separate decades. It's #72.

And achieving the same feat except first debuting much earlier last year, The Cranberries sneak in at #85 with an album track titled "Lost".

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 13/1/20
Edition No.531
Songs retire at 75 weeks

While it may seem that "Dream Steppin'" - now up to 7 weeks - seems a little unstoppable for the #1 spot, there are some debuts that may ramp up the competition in the coming weeks.

So this song is nearly a year old and I'll only really try to chart these things if I think the top end of the chart is better for its inclusion, and that's absolutely the case here. Maxo Kream is a rapper from Houston who released his second album last year which contains this one. Co-produced by Mike Dean who you may know from such works as everything, "Meet Again" is Maxo's first entry to date and it's #2.

I did not expect to enjoy the Temples album as much as I did and I'm kicking myself for not trying it out sooner. "The Howl" is so much fun and deservedly comes in at #4.

Another product of my mega playlist of doom (although nowhere near the size of last year's) is The Big Moon who make their first entry. At #36 they are in with "Your Light".

Four entries now for Little Simz and this one was too good to pass up. "Venom" is #41.

Without properly checking I think I've charted something from each of BROCKHAMPTON's albums which is certainly impressive. At #50 they are in for the 7th time with "BOY BYE".

Meanwhile, it has been a few years or so since we've seen Tkay Maidza so it's great to see the queen of South Australian hip hop return to the chart. I say that because she has 5 entries to Hilltop Hoods' 3, helped by "Awake" coming in at #64. Let's not forget JPEGMAFIA though, as this is his 4th entry after first entering the chart back in 2018.

boler mani is another local rapper albeit much closer to home, and this is the first track of his I've really taken to. "applause" is #67.

In catching up on albums over the past fortnight, the title/closing track to The Cranberries' album has been an enjoyable listen. "In the End" is their 3rd entry at #71.

Temples weren't done just yet! "Context" now gives them a total of 17 entries, and this is yet again stock standard catchy brilliance from them. It's #73.

I really like the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets album but it's challenging because the songs don't stand out from one another particularly well. "Bill's Mandolin" is perhaps the one highlight that I can recall best, and it's their 2nd entry in at #80.

The mega playlist of doom helped this along as I saw it grow on me enough to chart. "Find an Island" is her 5th entry at #87.

Lastly a song not too far removed in sound from some of the big hip hop hits on my chart in 2019. I'm fairly sure that DJ Premier, Westside Gunn, Conway and Benny are all new to my chart, as long as that last one isn't BENEE or Benny the Butcher but wearing a different hat. "Headlines" is #97.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 20/1/20
Edition No.532
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Not really much to note this week - Two People can now have 8 weeks at the top with "Dream Steppin'" as a treat becoming only the 5th song ever to do so. Will they make it an equal record 9 next week? I honestly dunno.

Of all the 2020 songs I've tried so far [s]"Jogging" is amazing[/s] [s]this is absolutely one of them[/s], the new single from 070 Shake has stood out massively. Technically the first actual song released this decade to chart, "Guilty Conscience" is her first (credited) entry in at #29.

Despite her recent work not quite breaking through, Solange actually has her 2nd entry to date, having charted 9 years ago on a n1c collab track "Kenya" with Chris Taylor and Twin Shadow. "Binz" is #35.

Someone who has had a solid fortnight on this chart is Tkay Maidza. Following "Awake" entering last week, 6th entry "IDC IF U BE DED" is in now at #45.

These notes feel very short mostly because it hasn't been a busy week but here we have some Grouplove. It's also their 6th entry, and a long-awaited one at that having been absent here for 6 years, with "Deleter" at #72.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 27/1/20
Edition No.533
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I'm floored. "Waitress" and "The Reflection of You" have been unmatched for 7-8 years or so and now a song has equalled their record for the most weeks at #1. While the latter managed 9 consecutive weeks, neither of them debuted at #1 which of course "Dream Steppin'" by Two People did. Next week will be interesting to say the least.

It has been a big week for Denzel Curry with all the H100 stuff, but I can reveal that I already downloaded the "Bulls on Parade" Like A Version last month in anticipation. It's a great rendition and it earns him his 11th entry in at #27. Shout out to Harts who is uncredited here but has had two previous chart entries before.

Really this is just a silly rap song but some of the lyrics are offputting I must admit. However it's a third entry for Theophilus London, whose previous two entries "Tribe" and (Kanye's) "All Day" both spent exactly 26 weeks in the chart. Meanwhile Raekwon has made the chart once before on Flume's "You Know" which peaked at #39 - exactly where this track is debuting today. To complete the zany full circle, Allan Kingdom (does not feature on this song but) has previously charted just twice featuring on... "All Day" and "You Know". Yes you may be surprised that the X Files theme song is not charting after all that but "Whoop Tang Flow" is #39.

A dozen entries now for The Jungle Giants with their first new song of 2020! "Sending Me Ur Loving" at #53 continues along the similar sound explored by "Heavy Hearted". Also side-note to mention that all 6 Australian states are currently represented on the chart with only the two territories currently not - maybe Baker Boy and Peking Duk could fix that next week!

Next one is a song by a producer I hadn't heard of before featuring a producer that I most certainly have. Amtrac is from Kentucky, which is fitting because right now I'm rather hungry. "Radical" is #60, and it's a 17th entry for Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs who (at least) provides vocals on this one.

I'm still slightly torn on this because it could have been better, but "Life Is Good" grew on me. Debuting at nice, it's a 4th entry for Future and a 24th for Drake.

This is an interesting return to the chart for Alexandra Savior who last charted back in 2016 with the Alex Turner-co-produced "Shades". Her 2nd entry "But You" is #76.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 3/2/20
Edition No.534
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Now with the record all to themselves, Two People do what nearly 4000 songs have failed to do and make an astonishing 10 weeks at #1 with "Dream Steppin'".

Up first is a "Cheesy Love Song". I saw a bit of The Lazy Eyes' set last year supporting The Temper Trap but not enough to technically count it on my profile. They were pretty impressive and so is this, which appears to be their first actual release so far. It's very Beatles and it's #13.

To fill the large Warpaint void in my life rn, Sorry come to the rescue with their first entry. "More" is #16.

Turns out this wasn't on my mega playlist of doom but the BMTH song was, smh. "Meditjin" is the first of many H100 entries, Baker Boy's 2nd and JessB's 1st, and it's #23.

Sampa the Great is new to the chart and this was not far off charting several weeks ago actually. "Final Form" is #26.

I'm not sure what I was more pleasantly surprised about, that I didn't have to hear the whole Eminem album or that there was a really great song on it. "Darkness" is another foray into horrorcore and it gets very real, but instead of being too much it's somehow really engaging. He has 7 entries and this is #28.

Similar to Sorry, another band that is very difficult to find on the iTunes store is Moaning. I charted them a couple of years back and now they are here again with a similar brand of indie rock. "Ego" is their second entry and it's #29.

Hockey Dad (5th entry) and Hatchie (2nd) did a very lovely rendition of Macy Gray's "I Try" which was pleasant on H200 day. It's #36.

Not so much pleasant as just an downright banger is Slipknot's "Unsainted". 3 entries for them with this one at #38.

I'm going LAV crazy! It turns out that artists were picking out some of my faves in 2019 because Dear Seattle have done justice to "The Special Two" by Missy Higgins. They charted once last year and now have a second with this one in at #48.

EOY season and H100 has helped "everything i wanted" become Billie Eilish's 7th entry, in at #49.

FISHER burning up for a second entry with "You Little Beauty" at #51.

Similarly (but less) fun is "San Frandisco" which sadly beat San Cisco in the H100. Dom Dolla is a chart newbie and he is #66.

A 3rd entry for Thelma Plum but her 1st in half a decade! "Better in Blak" says f**k that to her chart drought and is in at #nice.

Just the second entry ever for Dune Rats which is a surprising stat but I guess I've never been a huge fan. Their version of "Tricks" which they've renamed "No Plans" is #79.

Wholesome moment to sneak into the H100 aside, "A.O.K" is a fun listen and it earns Adrian Eagle his first entry. It's #91.

It makes more sense when you hear his accent but it was still surprising to learn Bakar wasn't Aussie. He is also new to the chart in at #92 with the soulful "Hell N Back".

Simply because I've downloaded it, I assumed I charted "Smoko". However this is actually the first ever entry for The Chats, with "Pub Feed" at #93.

Lizzo has 2 entries now with "Tempo" still in the chart. Debuting at #95 is "Juice".

I was certain that "Drinkee" but I had to check to make sure I wasn't crazy Sofi Tukker have 2 entries with "Purple Hat" at #98.

And at #100 a debut entry (the last of 20 today) for Cosmo's Midnight with "C.U.D.I. (Can U Dig It)" SUCKAAAAAAA.

Edition No.535
Songs retire at 75 weeks

A song having its 11th straight week at #1 seems like some beautiful dark twisted fantasy, something that could not possibly seem real, seem real, seem really really real. Two People weren't as comfortable this week but keep the top spot with "Dream Steppin'". I genuinely don't know how long this will last, but actual challengers released this decade are starting to emerge.

And those challengers start with two artists I have never heard of. This week's highest debut is a collaborative track with Filipino producer fcj and WA-based singer Rosarrie. Technically fcj is listed first which adds Philippines to another country to my stats! "like the movies" has exponentially grown on me throughout the past week and it's #7.

I would bring up that interesting talking point about songs growing on someone after an artist has passed away, but I think there's a few other things at play here. Firstly, I was definitely wrong about "Robbery" by Juice WRLD even if I'm still not huge on his bigger/earlier hit. But there was something really great about this making it in on H100 day despite how sad of an occasion it was. The track enters at #17, his 2nd entry to date. It's a rare instance where my personal chart peak will be better than the IPAC peak - in fact it's only the 11th time that's ever happened https://imgur.com/a/yDpqU2D

The Undercover Dream Lovers burst onto the chart last year with "All You Need" and hit similar territory on their second entry here. At #50 it's their new synthy single "You Don't Have To Be Lonely".

After his two entries in 2015 that iconically had the same weeks in and almost the same peak, I was wondering if we'd ever see Jarryd James on the chart again. Well, wonder no longer, as his 3rd entry "Problems" is #57.

Of the many Pitchforkcore alt rock / folk acts that I've found about via that platform, Pinegrove have stood out to me for a while now despite only managing one prior entry. I'm happy to report that they've followed up nicely with the warm sounding "The Alarmist" in at #61.

This is just all too convenient but I was happy for this to fall into place. Pearl Jam managed the 2nd ever entry on my chart back in 2009 with "Just Breathe" and now they have got themselves the big 4000th entry in the chart's history! Another ridiculous milestone to prove how much time I spend on this. We haven't heard from Vedder & band since 2014 so it's great that "Dance Of The Clairvoyants" has earned its place on the chart. It's their 17th entry to date in at #73.

G Flip did moderately well last year with "About You" as a post-H100 chart entry and now she has a second entry here in exactly the same manner. "Stupid" stood out on H100 day for me and it's #92.

I don't intend on charting anything else from the H100 I think so that would mean this is the very last song released in the 2010s that will debut on this chart. And funnily, it's a song that I wasn't as keen on when it was in the ARIA chart too J. Cole has his 6th entry with "MIDDLE CHILD" closing out the week at #97.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 17/2/20
Edition No.536
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I promise it was really close this week however... it's now 12 weeks without a blemish for Two People, with the unlikely challenger "like the movies" by fcj & Rosarrie moving up to #2.

One of the interesting things about this week's chart was seeing where the two top debuts would land. The first is the new banger from A$AP Ferg entitled "Value" at #6, it's his 6th entry to date following on from his still current hits "Jet Lag" and "On GOD".

If I had to make a comparison of artists I'm more familiar with, I suppose this would be filed somewhere between Aphex Twin and The Avalanches. I've heard very little of Nicolas Jaar's music, which in the past few years has been released under the Against All Logic alias. It's apparently not the first time that he's sampled Beyoncé's "Baby Boy" but it's fairly evident despite when you realise how he's chopped up her vocals into a very different setting. "Fantasy" is Jaar's first entry in at #10.

I was hoping to cover all Australian states and territories in the chart at the same time (I don't think I ever have??), and that it would probably take aligning entries from Luca Brasi, Baker Boy and Peking Duk to do so. Well here we go! "Move" is a refreshing offering from the latter featuring the iconic vocals of Alisa Xayalith (although credited in a way that sadly prevents me from adding to Tnaffy's stats). It's #41, it's Peking Duk's 3rd entry (and 1st since "Take Me Over"!), with of course it being Alisa's 1st solo entry.

2 Chainz has a very cute dog, and he also has a record label by the name of T.R.U., and through that label he has released one of those confusingly credited compilation albums. After very little consideration, I'm going to credit this the same way I did "History" by 88rising with Rich Brian a year and a half ago Worl appears to be the main rapper on this track, with 2 Chainz also providing a verse. "Brick On My Face" debuting at #49 is the former's 1st entry and the latter's 6th.

I like every song Jaguar Jonze has released so far and this continues with her ultimately not-Eurovision-worthy "Rabbit Hole". This makes it her 3rd entry to date (I didn't chart "You Got Left Behind", yes cue the puns) in at #66.

I will keep this blurb politics-free but I will say it's terrific to have The Strokes back in my chart after a considerable absence. Their 14th entry "At The Door" is the teaser track to an upcoming album and it's in at #78.

The Colleagues are a duo of producers and borrow the services of one Freddie Gibbs on this track "Red Vans". It appears that Freddie provides all of the rapping on this despite part of it maybe sounding a bit like someone else, but in any case it's #90. It's the duo's 1st entry and Freddie's 14th.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 24/2/20
Edition No.537
Songs retire at 75 weeks

"Dirty Laundry" and "Feet" managing 6 weeks at #1 last year now seem miniscule in comparison. It seems I am not growing tired of "Dream Steppin'", which celebrates its 13th week at #1 with Two People continuing to extend their ridiculous record. The top 5 finally has a majority of 2020 releases with "like the movies", "Fantasy" and "Value" all going strong and I wouldn't write off one of them being the next challenger, but for now they remain in Two People's shadow.

I'm not sure how this stacks up compared to previous lead singles "Bad and Boujee" and "MotorSport" but I remain intrigued as to what Migos have planned for "Culture III" on the way soon. "Give No Fxk" in at #36 is co-produced by Murda Beatz and old mate DJ Durel, and it provides Migos' 13th entry, Travis Scott's 15th, and Young Thug's 3rd (who ties his equal best peak of #36 in "Goodbyes").

While this may come across as a little harsh, I wasn't sure how Surfer Blood would bounce back after my disappointment in their last album but this is a good start. Now (at least) doubling the amount of songs in the chart about mass shootings, "Parkland (Into the Silence)" is the teaser track to a new album in a couple of months, and it's their 12th entry to date debuting at #45.

I was perhaps underwhelmed by the new collaborative album from Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats but this compressed installer file was the main standout. Name dropping the best dog breed going around and hence getting the combined Daisy & Harry seal of approval, "So.Incredible.pkg" is Denzel's 12th and Kenny's 1st entries respectively in at #48.

I distinctly remember where I remember hearing "Sad Machine" for (one of) the first time(s) and I haven't been to where I was driving that day for so long. It proves that it also has been far too long since we've seen Porter Robinson on the chart. Growing on me is "Get Your Wish", his 2nd entry to date, in at #56.

I can't recall ever listening to an entire album of The Weeknd, so my somewhat enhanced hype might change that. The title track to his upcoming "After Hours" album is #61 and brings him up to 11 entries.

Another album I am anticipating is the new Dogleg album, especially after this 2nd entry of theirs. "Kawasaki Backflip" is #65 following on from their entry late last year "Fox".

Yet again, Alexander 23 comes in with a track that was just too catchy for me to ignore. Another second entry here, with "I Hate You So Much" in at #78.

The new Bombay Bicycle Club album is solid and while I've ruled the title track to be ineligible, "I Can Hardly Speak" is (just) fine. Their 11th entry is #79.

San Cisco continue their impressive run of charting in 9 of the last 10 years (I think 2016 is the missing one). "Reasons" is their 11th entry and it's #81.

I didn't download the 070 Shake album but the closing track grew on me enough, despite an annoyingly semi-redundant outro. "Flight319" is her 2nd entry in at #88.

Sometimes I worry that I'm too much of a grouch towards some artists that are relatively beloved on this website by people other than me, even if most of the time I'm still being fair. Hence it's redeeming when such artists come through with a chartworthy track, even if again I'm being completely rational in assessing the song as such. Anyway, while I've blabbered on again, Halsey has managed her 4th entry to date with "You should be sad" ending her 3-and-a-bit absence from the chart in at #92.

RY X was one of the big surprises of my EOY and I will be playing closer attention to his stuff moving forward. Ólafur Arnalds hasn't been in my chart before but proving that the Icelandic music scene is never too far away, his cousin was in múm who made my 2000 EOY. At #94 "Oceans" is RY X's 2nd entry.

And lastly, Hockey Dad make sure their upcoming new album doesn't miss out from making my chart with "Itch" squeezing in at #99, their 6th entry to date.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 2/3/20
Edition No.538
Songs retire at 75 weeks

What else can I say? Somehow someone has dethroned "Dream Steppin'" after a record-shattering 13 weeks at #1. While it was in fact a Hot Two People Summer, that aforementioned someone is Erica Lilly a.k.a Melbs bb, who starts autumn off with a bang is debuting at #1. "Astrology (clothesline)" is rather excellent and hits all the right notes to become an irish hit, and it also takes the illustrious crowns of being the first #1 from this decade and also the 189th #1 in the chart's history.

Funnily enough if you've only been following my chart for the past 14 weeks you'd think that I only ever have #1s that debut there, as Melbs bb's "Astrology (clothesline)" also becomes the 23rd song to debut at top spot. It's her first entry to date.

"YES!" was indeed my reaction within seconds of first hearing this song, as it does interpolate one of my favourite The Drums songs, while also being a slightly more upbeat hip hop banger that still easily qualifies for my chart. KYLE and K CAMP are both new to the chart, and it's Rich The Kid's 2nd entry, with the song debuting at #14.

Northeast Party House have been around for a while and I remember first coming across them possibly in some artist countdown thing where they stood out to me for being obscure at that time (maybe the Unearthed artist thing a few years ago but that feels too soon - I thought it was something Channel V-related?). Anyway while that will continue to wreck my head, it will be interesting to see if "The Desert" picks up traction. It's their first entry in at #21.

It's becoming more exciting when artists crack the 10 entries club and Glass Animals are the newest inductee! Following on from the success of "Tokyo Drifting", a song on their own in "Your Love (Déjà Vu)" comes in at #36.

I feel like this has the potential to become an a-c hit, and I don't think anyone else has charted this yet BRUX come in at #41 with her single "Fruit" at #41.

Admittedly the Britt Daniel feature drew me to this, but name value is not always a bad thing. The soul / country / Americana vibes of Nicole Atkins are new to the chart and "Captain" is in at #48. Britt is new to the chart in his solo capacity if we're not counting his production work with White Rabbits, and of course not to mention his 5 entries as part of Spoon.

I think it's the chorus that really brings this home for me, and it's a first entry for Hazel English. "Off My Mind" is #54.

Alex Lahey ruins the pattern of every second entry being Victorian this week, yes I am complaining that I like this song slightly more than I should. Also holy crap "Sucker For Punishment" really reminds me of Plague Vendor's "New Comedown". It's (regrettably) only Alex's 2nd entry to date in at #61 after "Ivy League" back in 2016.

Another 10 entries club inductee this week with the new single debuting from Little Dragon. It's sort of surprising that they didn't already have a song called "Hold On", but now they do, and it's #68.

While I would have preferred that this wasn't mixed so loudly, I'm not going to be much of a grouch because I quite like the new Jack River single. "Dark Star" is not a hot Poliça cover, but it is her 2nd entry in at #72.

WA group Death By Denim already have a 3rd entry, which is great despite "Homemade" helping contribute to "Drone" exiting this week. It's #89.

You know when a Billie single is stylised differently that some film has been released that I will never see. "No Time To Die" is #93, her 8th entry to date.

Yves Tumor is an interesting artist who I want to hear more of. He is new to the chart with "Gospel For a New Century" entering at #95.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 9/3/20
Edition No.539
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The Victorian dominance on the chart continues with Melbs bb holding up a second week at #1 with "Astrology (clothesline)" ahead of the behemoth in "Dream Steppin'" keeping steady at #2. Against All Logic also maintains his peak at #3 with "Fantasy". Just below, fcj & Rosarrie and Temples are swapped out for The Strokes and Moaning at #4 and #5 respectively, meanwhile Future & Drake rocket into the top 10 in almost inevitable fashion with "Life Is Good" at #8.

From the producers of current top 10 hit "Suge" comes a debut entry for Louisville, KY local Jack Harlow. It also has a Lyrical Lemonade music video which as expected is rather amusing. "WHATS POPPIN" ensures that this boy is in the top 30.

Another song that is quite clearly my bag baby is "Here's The Thing" by Sports Team. Football references, clever songwriting and happy riffs make this a clear winner. Their first entry to date is #40.

I do appreciate Release Radar sometimes even if I try not to rely on it for fear of always having established artists on my chart. But it did bring "Can't Go Home" courtesy of a Freddie Gibbs feature, which was the first teaser released to the new album from Dominick Newton a.k.a. The Jacka released late last month. It's a posthumous album though, as sadly Newton passed away in 2015. It's a 1st entry for him and a 15th for Gibbs, with the track coming in at #42.

I'm not going to deny that the new Tame Impala album is a tad frustrating but it's definitely far from a basket case. At #62 one of my preferred deep cuts is "Is It True" which has a really catchy instrumental hook. I've since decided that Kevin's two featured entries credited as Kevin Parker should count as Tamey entries, so including this new one this means that he is up to 24 entries to date.

shit I totally forgot to write about Joji "Run" has grown on me impressively and he's now up to 5 entries to date with this one at #68.

I can however support Purity Ring far more because they are a band. They add to the growing list of upcoming releases in the next month or so that I really cannot let slip me by... lol I am lazy. "stardew" is #78, their 5th entry to date.

Sneaking in at the tail end of the chart is Oliver Malcolm with the quirky trap pop production of "Switched Up". It's #94, his 1st entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 16/3/20
Edition No.540
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Melbs bb took the baton from Two People and she refuses to give it up at this moment, with "Astrology (clothesline)" celebrating 3 weeks on top.

The top two debuts this week both come courtesy of Byron Bay, and hmm the town has quite a list of other noteworthy artists too. Also worth noting is that RY X has jumped into the top 20 too! Garrett Kato is not an artist I've come across, apparently he is Canadian-born and here he collaborates with Julia Stone. The result "Breathe It In" is really great and it's a first debut for both artists. Meanwhile of course Julia has had 4 previous entries with A&JS, none of which though peaked higher than this debut at #3!

Seaside have kept their one-entry-a-year streak going for 3 years now, but the result here is far darker and grittier. And I'm happier for it, because "Shame" slaps and their 3rd entry to date is #22.

New to the chart are WA band Great Gable. Most memorable here is the hook which is so warm and familiar. "All My Friends" is not a cover of anything and it's #27.

My Disclosure chart history is pretty disjointed but they break a five-year absence today. "Ecstasy" is the first one without a credited vocalist despite the vocal sample in it. The track enters at #33, their 4th entry to date.

I was hoping that one of the Against All Logic deep cuts would do this so here we are. "Penny" is one of the longer tracks on the album and it's #42, Nicolas Jaar's 2nd entry to date.

And last but not least in a very competitive week for debuts, Mk.gee is a guy from LA it seems. The song title "cz" may not help its case but it's a catchy slice of indie pop. His first entry to date is in at #51.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 23/3/20
Edition No.541
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Plenty of action in the chart this week, with Melbs bb retaining her #1 spot for a 4th straight week with "Astrology (clothesline)" and Garrett Kato & Julia Stone swapping for Two People to grab #2. Future stays strong at #4 with "Life Is Good", but a new debut comes in at #5...

I'm glad I had this recommended to me as otherwise it probably would have been missed completely. Jay Electronica's new album is rather impressive, and although it's early days I was blown away by this particular track. With uncredited vocals from the one and only Jay-Z, "Ghost of Soulja Slim" has killer rapping and "Madvillainy"-esque production. It's Jay Electronica's first entry to date, and it's #5.

One of the more melancholic tracks in the chart comes from a duo by the name of flora cash. "Still Alive" is their first debut to date and until "Ghost of Soulja Slim" came along literally on Saturday, this was initially on track to be the highest debut of the week. It's #13.

I didn't dismiss it completely but eventually "Oprah's Bank Account" of course grew on me. I'm predictable as heck sometimes, Lil Yachty has 3 entries, DaBaby is up to 3, Drake is at 25, and the song is #15.

I came across The Kount on Twitter for a number of really interesting videos where he incorporates random recordings of sound and mash them into banging electronic jams. It's no surprise that this track "3HREE" hits similar vibes, which is a first entry for producer DECAP and The Kount and it's #21.

WA's Arno Faraji is one of the numerous very young Aussie rappers coming up doing very exciting things. "Bass Jumpin" is his first entry on the chart, in at #34.

"The Difference" was probably destined to end up here given Flume's decent consistency in his chart entries. It's his 26th to date, with Toro y Moi coming in for his 4th, the track is #41.

I do like my cups of coffee and I also like "death bed". Powfu and beabadoobee are both new to the chart and this ARIA chart crossover is #43 here.

One artist that I don't see making the ARIA chart any time soon is Protomartyr. Their loud post-punk riffs are back with a vengeance with 4th entry "Processed By The Boys" at #51.

We still have Yves Tumor in the chart so this seems illegal but Yves V is in the chart [s]feel like pure shit just want Yves Klein Blue back[/s]. The Belgian producer's Spinnin' Records collab with Ilkay Sencan featuring Emie is a dancey rework of "Thank You" by Dido, with all three artists in the chart for the first time and "Not So Bad" is #54.

One of the most notable one-hit wonder cases in the chart's history has been cracked! Thao & The Get Down Stay Down had a 4-week #1 in 2016 with "Astonished Man" and unfortunately nothing else from that album stood out to chart for me. She & band are back with the title track for the upcoming "Temple" LP, with the song in at #61.

The Killers' chart history has been a little unfortunate as they've never managed to get higher than #46 despite them being a band that I still quite enjoy. I am reluctant to change that with thei 7th entry "Caution" as it debuts at #nice.

Lil Uzi Vert stans can be rather obnoxious on Twitter and it doesn't help that the album turned out to be a little ordinary. However, "Baby Pluto" is good and it's his 5th entry in at #76.

I was hoping that Grimes could manage an entry from her new album and maybe I can actually get around to hearing the album in full as that may help. "You'll miss me when I'm not around" is a catchy grower in at #81, her 6th entry to date.

New to the chart is Kevin Krauter who is not the only Indiana artist in the chart this week. At #88 is his track "Opportunity".

And lastly, Rich The Kid sneaks in his 3rd entry with "Red" at #100.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 30/3/20
Edition No.542
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This week there were clearly 9 songs that stood out as the top 9, but I knew the order was up in the air. Ultimately, Jay Electronica's momentum was massive and he propels to #1 in his first attempt with "Ghost of Soulja Slim". It's in fact the 190th #1 in the chart's history and the 4th that Jay-Z has had involvement in after "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)", "Otis" and "APESHIT". A huge debut was on the cards for EAST AV3, but amazingly they take the #2 spot ahead of a steady Two People and a not so steady Melbs bb. The Strokes push back in the top 5 with "At The Door", with Future slipping down 2 places to #6 and (despite me really liking it!) Garrett Kato & Julia Stone unfortunately slide all the way back to #7.

So it has been a big week for the top of the chart and Adelaide trio EAST AV3 have had some hand in the chaos. For fans of BROCKHAMPTON and Vince Staples I highly recommend "Le Labo". It's an awesome bouncy banger which I am so glad I came across on the j's. They are new to the chart and it's in at #2.

It's fair to say that the other Aussie artist debuting this week have a slightly different backstory to EAST AV3. Those who know me well will know I love the work of The Avalanches, and it was unsurprising when they made a big impact on this particular chart back in 2016. They may be going for something totally different with their 2020 stuff so far but "Running Red Lights" is pretty lovely. They have their 8th entry to date with the track coming in at #25, Rivers Cuomo has his 2nd and unsurprisingly Pink Siifu is new.

Not the only song on my Spotify playlist titled "Promises", but I do prefer the Beach Bunny one to the Grouplove one. With a debut album recently released, Beach Bunny are new to the chart with the track at #51.

POLIÇA have been around the chart for several years, first appearing back in 2013 with the brilliant "Dark Star". They throw some shade out by playing a part in pushing Jack River down the chart too, with "Steady" their 7th entry in at #72.

I have charted a-c members before but this is just taking the piss. In all seriousness, Bullion is a producer from London and I had first assumed it was a band. "We Had a Good Time" is his first entry in at #80.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 6/4/20
Edition No.543
Songs retire at 75 weeks

It doesn't last long for Jay Electronica but it still wasn't an easy decision this week, with EAST AV3 taking top spot with "Le Labo".

First up is a rapper who has had quite a decent summer on the chart one might say. I'm aware of the viral dances but as always I'm more interested in the trap production and rap flows. Megan Thee Stallion does a more than serviceable job on "Savage", her second entry to date in at #37.

Maybe helped somewhat by Big Scary's amazing Isol-Aid performance (still enamoured by the rendition of "The Opposite Of Us") but also I was aware of new #1 Dads music anyway. Following Big Scary's two previous entries, Tom Iansek now has his first entry under this project with the track "Twice a Fool" at #45.

It shouldn't be surprising to say this but actually relistening to albums I have downloaded makes me more familiar with them. Whilst I continue dropping truth bombs, please enjoy Moaning's 3rd entry to date "Stranger" at #52.

This is most certainly a thing. Duck Sauce are in the chart, in THIS economy, for the first time in 9 years. "Captain Duck" in at #64 is the duo's 3rd entry to date under this project although Armand and A-Trak have been credited on other entries too.

Of all the songs on "After Hours" not already charting, "In Your Eyes" seemed the most obvious choice for me this week. 12 entries for The Weeknd with this one at #70.

Porter Robinson capitalises on his existing entry with another banger titled "Something Comforting" at #77, his 3rd to date.

Tia Gostelow is one of the more eclectic artists in the country right now as her chart history here will reflect. Following the melancholy "Out of Mind", the upbeat "Get To It", the synthpop of "RUSH" is her 3rd entry in at #82.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 13/4/20
Edition No.544
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I haven't had 3 weeks of different #1s in over 8 months, and it occurs again with "At The Door" by The Strokes taking the mantle rather unexpectedly. One of those 1-week #1s last year was coincidentally "The Eternal Tao" by The Voidz, which marks the only other time that Julian Casablancas has managed #1 on the chart. EAST AV3, Jay Electronica and Two People keep their order but each slip down a place, while Future pushes Melbs bb out of the top 5.

A big thing happened this week with Two People in that they released another single. "A Taste" is a good name because it has me very interested for a possible album, meanwhile it was always hard for them to follow up the record-breaking "Dream Steppin'" so they've done really well! Their 6th entry to date funnily enough enters at their lucky number #13.

Two entries now for Jay Electronica with the slightly more chilled "The Neverending Story" in at #19.

"Savage" was lucky to keep ahead of "Captain Hook" because this really came about late in the week for me. Megan Thee Stallion now has 3 entries and the latter track debuts at #25.

Another artist that debuts two weeks in a row is #1 Dads, and this time his new entry is already his highest peak. "Freedom Fighter" is his second entry in at #28.

As if I wasn't going to chart the new Owl Eyes song, of course it's great! She impressively is now up to 16 entries with "Tokyo" in at #49.

An Isol-Aid artist I was semi-interested to hear but missed out on was Clea, who previously charted in 2016 with her cover of "Crimson and Clover". The Queenslander is now in for a second entry with "Soft Blow to the Head" at #54.

Along with Velociraptor, it's safe to say that DZ Deathrays side projects are never Google-able without adding "band" afterwards. Exercise caution when finding more information out about Roman Fuck Party, but in any case enjoy their debut entry "Your Sentence Is Coming" at #65.

An Isol-Aid set that I did catch was Annie Hamilton, and I can now say that "Kitchen" was not a fluke. Her second entry "Panic" continues the Aussie majority among the debuts this week in at #73.

Recent EOY alumni Squid may not have totally sold me on their EP, but I did get this recommended to me so it briefly passed me by. "Sludge" is their second entry and it's #85.

New to the chart is Alina Baraz with "Morocco". Although he did feature on an ordinary ScHoolboy Q album track last year, 6LACK also makes his first appearance with the song entering at #93.

And Dogleg now have 3 entries, doing a reverse Kings of Leon and actually naming their album's closing track "Ender" at #98.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 20/4/20
Edition No.545
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The Strokes were never in doubt for two weeks at #1 with "At The Door".

The year of strange high debuts continues with the first entry from Chicago's Huron John. It's a nice long title too, with "Why Do People Grow (Long for the Day When I Had That Flip Phone)" in at #19.

Lil Rae is also considerably younger than me and he hails from across the Tasman. His first entry "ODYSSEY" is #26 features fellow first timer Pelican Tusk.

This has bubbled under for a while and I even briefly gave up on it. The second entry for Perfume Genius "Describe" is already higher than what "Slip Away" managed, debuting at #41.

I like me some Dogleg as you will know by now. Their album is great and it yields a 4th entry "Hotlines" at #44.

Quickly developing a collection of entries is Alex the Astronaut - now 4 entries with "Split the Sky" at #47.

Floodlights was a good discord recommendation for me, and the Victorian band are successful in debuting for the first time. "Matter of Time" is #50.


Very exciting this week to finally have Something for Kate on my chart after all these years. I may not be their biggest stan but respect to them still going strong. "Situation Room" is #63.

Rewind back to 7-8 years ago and I stanned Washed Out massively; times have changed but at least the tunes are still good. "Too Late" is Ernest's 8th entry to date in at #71.

5 entries in 5 separate years now for Dua Lipa which I lowkey forgot. "Break My Heart" beats the peak for "Don't Start Now" by coming in at #90.

They missed the opportunity to be the Red Bot Chili Feppers but Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever still have one of the best band names out there. 3 entries now, "She's There" is #91.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 27/4/20
Edition No.546
Songs retire at 75 weeks

A bit of movement this week, but alas not at the top as The Strokes manage 3 weeks with "At The Door". EAST AV3 are steady at #2 while Megan Thee Stallion and The Avalanches get new peaks underneath them, meanwhile "Dream Steppin'" continues its rapid decline down the chart to #5.

The year is 2020 and Bright Eyes are in the chart. While I'm not the most knowledgeable person regarding their discography, I mostly know of them as big in the '00s and I particularly love "First Day of My Life". Anyway, one of the first songs they have released in nearly a decade is entitled "Persona Non Grata" (a perfect acronym that won't get confused for any file format or country in Oceania), their first entry on the chart in at #35.

The chart hasn't really reflected my enjoyment of the new Sorry album so maybe this is the start of me doing it some justice. Admittedly I do need to throw it on again. "Ode to Boy" is really lovely, their 2nd entry in at #43.

Naming a song "Runaway" (albeit in all caps) is certainly a way to make me like it, and here REI AMI shows she has clearly studied my chart & lastie history. She is new to the chart and it's #52.

I was pretty sure Naïka had never charted before because I was thinking of Nïka instead, and indeed SACHI never had previously either. The song they call "Enchanté" is #66.

There is a new Hamilton Leithauser record out earlier this month which was news to me. Jury is out if I ever get to it but I can say that "The Garbage Men" is fun. Separate to his 1 entry as part of The Walkmen, this is Hamilton's 4th entry as a soloist to date.

I am mostly positive on the new Weeknd album which is pretty cool given it's the first one that has made it to my library in its entirety. It has caused plenty of chart action too, with this latest entry "Save Your Tears" the 5th entry from it and his 13th overall, in at #99.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 4/5/20
Edition No.547
Songs retire at 75 weeks

To quote a certain Matt Bellamy, The Strokes have been at #1 for a total of 28 days, f*cking hell. "At The Door" outlasts its competition again with EAST AV3 holding firm at #2 with their 1-week #1 "Le Labo". Megan Thee Stallion has a solid week keeping her big hit "Savage" at #3, but also seeing "Captain Hook" break through into the top 5 at #5. It leaves The Avalanches sandwiched but while still keeping their #4 spot, and it finally pushes Two People out of the top 5 for the first time in 23 weeks with "Dream Steppin'" down a spot to #6.

The highest debut this week has an interesting backstory which also brings about my release date hives. Lil B enlisted the production of Clams Casino back in 2009 for "I'm God" which took a sample of Imogen Heap's "Just For Now". Clams would go onto release a mixtape of instrumentals back in 2011 and Imogen clearly knew all about it, even tweeting about a dog video with the Lil B version behind it. However I don't think the sample was ever cleared and after a longstanding copyright battle, the sample appears to have now been cleared allowing the song minus Lil B to get an official release last month. At least the one change in this instance is that Imogen is now listed as a credited artist which I don't think was the case before. And whether or not the 2020 release is different I'm not too sure either... I may not allow it in my EOY, but for now all I'll decide is that it's charting, mainly because my head is spinning too much just thinking about all of this but also because the song is rather good. Clams Casino is new to the chart as a credited artist but produced "Lvl" and "Hell" by A$AP Rocky, and Imogen Heap is also new. "I'm God" is #17.

With far less controversy we have the new Kid Cudi single that isn't already in the top 5 in this country because of a video game. Cudi is inching closer to the 10 entries club with "Leader of the Delinquents" pushing him up to 9. His flow here is a lot of fun reminding me a little bit of his work on "Symphonies" by Dan Black back in 2010 except this time the result is far darker. It debuts at #27.

I often randomly click on ABC News when I'm bored scrolling on my phone, and was surprised to see Jaguar Jonze briefly as the headline article because of her recent COVID-19 experiences (she appears well now which is great). I'm writing this in the past before Sunday night when she would be performing in Isol-Aid but of course I won't catch it because retrospective brods are life; this song from her new EP is quite good though. She is 4 entries in now with "Rising Sun" her highest ever peak already at #48.

SG Lewis has had a number of songs get decent triple j airplay and of course it was the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs feature that I had to chart two years ago. Lewis now back for a second entry with "Chemicals", quite the bop in at #55.

I did hint on Twitter that Sorry were possibly up for more chart action, and I've held myself to that not-really-a-promise. "Wolf" is one of the most fascinating collisions of ideas I've heard anywhere this year, let alone on this album, and it brings the Londoners up to 3 entries with the song entering at #77.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 11/5/20
Edition No.548
Songs retire at 75 weeks

There's very little movement except for top spot, which changes hands to give Megan Thee Stallion her first ever week at #1 with "Savage". It's the first time my two charts have shared #1s since "Vossi Bop" last year. The Strokes and EAST AV3 each drop a spot with The Avalanches not far behind; meanwhile Megan also gets straight 5s with "Captain Hook" also keeping steady.

Mammals built some chart history in the first half of last decade off the back of top 10 hit "Carried". However it has been six years since Guy Brown's project has featured on this chart, and he has gone from soft acoustic folk to gloomy electronic balladry in that time. "Mansion" is his 4th entry to date and it's in at #25.

Like it or not, listening to The Smith Street Band in any context these days comes with some baggage and it made me wonder if/how I would weigh on the seemingly unavoidable discourse. Without sounding inconsiderate, I'm rather uncomfortable in trying to justify liking a song despite information out in the public domain regarding said artist. This is kind of where I land with "The End Of The World", which is actually the first time I've ever charted TSSB despite first hearing them back in 2012 and generally having liked what they've done. What else can I possibly say? I'm still not quite sure how this sits with me but this song resonated with me so much this past week. It's #31.

Getting closer to the 10 entries club are Methyl Ethel, which seems somewhat surprising to me given how I don't feel that I've particularly stanned them much compared to others. I didn't need much convincing with "Honest", which if anything I thought would end up debuting higher than it ends up doing. They are up to 8 entries with this one at #33.

"Southern Cloud" is definitely a typical sounding track for Joseph D'Agostino and it really stood out for me as a deep album cut. It's the 3rd entry for his solo project Empty Country after Cymbals Eat Guitars disbanded, with it debuting at #40.

In just a few weeks, a second Bright Eyes entry has already appeared on the chart with this one at #43. This week I just preferred "Forced Convalescence" to "Persona Non Grata" but not to the Owl Eyes song in the chart!

I don't know much about CLYPSO but it's not surprising that she has had truckloads of triple j airplay with this one. "Sidestep" is the producer/vocalist's first entry in at #51.

While it felt weird that The Strokes took so long to follow up their #1 hit, there was no obvious follow-up entry to me given that I'm a little cold on what they chose to be the single. I've landed on "Not The Same Anymore" at #54 which goes for a melancholy vibe and is their 3rd longest album track ever (ignore the fact that the 5 longest are all from "The New Abnormal" and the 4th longest is "At The Door" ). They are up to 15 entries though.

I came across this because of JANEVA who up until now was a one-hit wonder! It's a first entry for Hutcher as "Last Time" comes in at #75.

Moaning's album deserved a bit more credit via this chart so I'm glad I could grant it via "Make It Stop". Their 4th entry to date is #87.

I'm extremely unfamiliar with the work of The Orb but it's rather amusing that an ambient house duo 16 albums deep into their career can slot into the chart with me not having context of what they've done before. "Daze (Missing & Messed up Mix)" kind of fits the bill but I really like how easygoing and fun it is, and it's #89.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 18/5/20
Edition No.549
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Not much to note this week but don't tell that to Megan Thee Stallion, who celebrates two weeks at the top with "Savage". "At The Door" keeps steady at #2, but "Running Red Lights" by The Avalanches makes its move jumping ahead of EAST AV3 to a new peak of #3. "Captain Hook" rounds off the top 5 again in another week that was pretty steady.

Quite the unexpected collaboration that has come up this month has been ONEFOUR teaming up with none other than top 5 alumnus A$AP Ferg. "Say It Again" is a song that I clicked with relatively quickly and it's the Aussie freaks' first entry in the charts, meanwhile it's the 7th for Ferg. Also if the coronavirus lyric is in there when did they film the music video? The track comes in at #10.

Would you believe that the lead vocalist of this band that sound somewhat like Doves was once in The All-American Rejects? That sure blew my mind when I found out, but not as much as discovering how great "We Wait" is. It's a first entry for Other Lives, and it debuts at #17.

KOTA the Friend is a rapper who has a new album on its way from which "B.Q.E" is a tight jazzy number. I had to check if he had featured on a chart entry before and he hasn't which makes him a first timer, but it is in fact the 2nd entry for Bas who was part of the role call track "Link Up" by Buddy last year. Joey Bada$$ is the relative veteran involved here, with this being his 6th entry and this track coming in at #45.

This sort of beat me down into submission after really being on the fence with it. "Idontknow" is a certified banger and (excluding 3 entries with The xx) Jamie xx has 3 entries now with this one at #52.

Victoria's own Nat Vazer follows up her 2018 coronavirus bop "Keep Away From Parks" with 2nd entry "For A Moment" at #86, a cut from an upcoming album to be released at the end of this month.

There are some really groovy riffs in this, with Peach Fur closing out a good week of local debuts. "Funkn Oath" is also an excellent title too, with their first entry to date debuting at #95.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 25/5/20
Edition No.550
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I'm not a Weezer hater (although the band has never made this particular chart before), but I would say it's strange to see Rivers Cuomo at #1 in 2020, in this economy, in this part of the country, localised entirely within my kitchen. Of course it helps when you provide vocals on a new track from The Avalanches, but it was never a given especially when the previous single didn't really resonate with me at all. "Running Red Lights" is the new #1, and it marks a new direction for them which I've been captivated by in recent months. It's the second #1 for The Avalanches after "Frankie Sinatra" achieved the same feat back in 2016. Below them, Megan Thee Stallion, The Strokes and EAST AV3 each move down a spot. Meanwhile, I don't think I've ever had two Aussie hip hop songs in the top 5 before as ONEFOUR jump up to #4 with "Say It Again".

I can make some Portlandia jokes about Max Leone but maybe that show has dated already? "Cautious" is pretty impressive and marks his first entry on the chart to date, in at #29.

Quickly following up her recent entries is Little Simz. A new EP has been released, featuring the track "might bang, might not". It's her 5th entry to date in at #34.

Now part of my underwhelming band t-shirt collection, I am thrilled that there is more FONTAINES D.C. to enjoy this year. "A Hero's Death" is the title track for their upcoming second album, with the Irish rockers coming in at #36 for their 6th entry to date.

I listened to the two new tracks released in the new Empty Country b-sides/demos album, and "10 Year" stood out immediately. It's now 4 entries for D'Agostino with this one at #44.

In similar territory of something that was or used to be in a band, we have Tired Lion. With previously only managing lower peaking tracks, "Waterbed" is maybe a sign that Sophie Hopes could be better on her own with it in at #59, her/the project's 4th entry to date.

It could be unfair to say this but Tkay Maidza has upped her game recently, and I'm excited. "Shook" is her 7th entry in at #63.

Now we have two artists in a row breaking nine (or so) year droughts from the chart, and the first one is a rather surprising case. I honestly never thought I'd see Art vs. Science again on my chart after their excellent 2011 album "The Experiment", and given they share a band member with Philadelphia Grand Jury who broke a similar absence last year this feels very fitting. Their new one "Icycle Bicycle" has somewhat defied the odds - it's sufficiently strange and fun and it marks their 6th entry to date, in at #nice.

The second of these two artists has evolved so much since their 2011 entry that (to me at least) they sound almost unrecognisable. The Dead Love came in with the raw pub rock production of "She Ate Me Alive" 9 years ago, and today are indeed that [s]bitch[/s] band, with "My Friends" becoming their 2nd entry to date in at #72.

ZHU's chart history isn't quite as fascinating although he continues his run of one entry every two years, with this one being his 3rd to date. "ONLY" at #88 features Tinashe who previously featured on "All My Friends" by Snakehips back in 2016.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 1/6/20
Edition No.551
Songs retire at 75 weeks

It wasn't close this week as The Avalanches are #1 again. I did tweet this a while back that this could happen, but I do think "Dream Steppin'" has at least partly "broke" or changed the chart this year. I'm not complaining but I think songs like "Life Is Good" and "Le Labo" have more longevity than maybe they would have had last year? There has been a dip in recent entries doing well which has contributed to the increased steadiness, but I am excluding ONEFOUR from that analysis as they move up to #2. I suppose there's always the chance I might be reading too much into this as there has been a variety of good stuff this year anyway (there is also EOD stuff which is distracting me in a big way). Meanwhile, The Strokes continue their own longevity at #3 while Megan Thee Stallion drops down to #4 with "Savage".

Hoping to break through the gridlock could be Amber Mark, who has been relatively prolific during isolation including an interesting cover of "Heart-Shaped Box". Her third entry "1894" is a real banger and it comes in at #18, the highest she has charted before by some distance.

I did confirm that this is the same Evangeline who featured on an Ok Sure entry on my chart last year. Her second entry to date "Bad Parties" made a big impression on me coming in at #25. Julius provides a rap verse that I really wish was longer but in any case he is new to the chart.

Continuing their momentum after their biggest ever hit last year is IDLES, whose new single of course features co-production from Kenny Beats. 2020 becomes even more confusing but "Mr. Motivator" is still typical IDLES. It's their 8th entry to date in at #30.

I'm pretty glad that I've finally clicked with a Hinds song. "Just Like Kids (Miau)" is messy af but I'm not complaining, it's their 1st entry at #32.

Shura had an impressive 2019 so it's good that she is following her chart success up quickly. "elevator girl" is her 4th entry and Ivy Sole's 1st, and it's #42.

Purity Ring's album sadly remains my only physical CD purchase of 2020 so far but at least it no longer has just the one chart entry. The duo's 6th entry to date overall "i like the devil" is at least for now my favourite from the album, it's #53.

I was hoping this would stick with me a bit more but it's still a good second entry for Great Gable. "Blur" is #66.

Interestingly I've just finished rating The Strokes for my EOD so it's really weird to have this album in my chart right now in the context of the two preceding it. "The Adults Are Talking" is the band's 16th entry to date (wow tbh) and it's #75.

RIMON is Dutch but born in Eritrea, and she collaborates here with Florida's Denzel Curry. "Got My Back" is so international that even Pitbull feels shook, meanwhile it's her 1st entry and his 13th in at #77.

Closing out the week is EAST AV3 who have done enough to register a second entry. Aussie rap's big 2020 on my chart continues (I even kinda liked that new Hilltop Hoods song fyi) with "RUGRAT$" at #92.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 8/6/20
Edition No.552
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I would preface this week by saying that EOD has taken up a lot of my music listening time (I may have an update on all of this very very soon btw), meaning that I have many possible debuts lined up but with at least a week's delay on some of them. No such issues for The Avalanches though, who celebrate 3 weeks at #1 with "Running Red Lights" now breezing past the 2 weeks they got for "Frankie Sinatra". ONEFOUR are still a clear #2, but face competition from Amber Mark who rockets up 15 places in a very un-2020 way with "1894" at #3. The Strokes drop one place to #4 while EAST AV3 maintain their impressive top 5 run hanging on at #5.

The highest debut is a surprise not only for the change in direction for the band, but also that in the way that it ended up surpassing the rest of the bubbling under list this week. Glass Animals are indeed calling their new album "Dreamland" and the title track from it is their 11th entry to date. It's #20.

I was impressed with this one basically straight away. Tia Gostelow is up to 4 entries and her synthy direction is continuing to pay dividends, with "Psycho" in at #29.

The EOD is genuinely helping my chart, as I got up to The Amity Affliction alphabetically in my rating list and got curious as to what their new singles sound like. I can't even remember if I heard this earlier in the year or not but I like "Soak Me In Bleach". They break a 6-year drought away from the chart with their 3rd entry in at #38.

An artist who definitely does not have a drought on the chart is Alex the Astronaut. She is now up to 5 entries with "Lost" in at #42.

This still isn't displaying on properly on my lastie so I think there are some errors with the stats this morning. Migos have 14 entries with "Need It" at #64 featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again who is up to 2.

The circumstances around this very slowly growing on me and then eventually charting is almost identical to "Describe". Based on this trajectory, I will surely have charted the entire Perfume Genius album by around 2064. The project of Michael Hadreas is up to 3 entries with "On the Floor" at #72.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 15/6/20
Edition No.553
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Quite the run is developing for The Avalanches now as "Running Red Lights" has 4 weeks. Amber Mark swaps with ONEFOUR for a new peak of #2, while EAST AV3 keep their top 5 run going at #4. Max Leone is the new member of the top 5, moving up to a new peak of #5 with "Cautious".

The delay on debuts may continue for another couple of weeks, yep things remain busy right now. Inklines are the top debut and they are new to the chart too! The vocals in "Violet" remind me of Rivers Cuomo which is excellent timing, and the track debuts at #55.

When a band known best for its '90s output debuts randomly on my chart, it gives me the permission to conduct a detailed analysis on the state of the economy. One of Brisbane's most popular bands Custard have released three albums since reforming last decade. "Couple's Fight" is a rocking number and it marks their first entry, in at #62.

It has been pushing for a debut for a couple of weeks now but finally The Beths get their second entry. "I'm Not Getting Excited" is #71.

The only debut of the week to not come from Australia or New Zealand is courtesy of the new collaboration album between Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist. "Frank Lucas" is the track I've chosen from it but it's not an obvious standout. At #73, it's a 16th entry for Gibbs, 2nd credited entry for The Alchemist, and 2nd for Benny The Butcher.

Tim Ayre released a solid tune last year in "Barcelona", and the Perthian(?) now has his 2nd entry. "I Want It" is #79.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 22/6/20
Edition No.554
Songs retire at 75 weeks

It was really close this week and Amber Mark is an unlucky #2, but the result is 5 weeks for The Avalanches at #1 with "Running Red Lights". ONEFOUR keep steady at #3, while IDLES bullet into the top 5 with their 3rd top 5 hit in "Mr. Motivator" at #4 and EAST AV3 are still in the top 5.

The all-caps fun in the top 5 could be set to continue as preparations for a new IDLES album gather further momentum. "Grounds" is their 9th entry to date, also jumping into the top 10 this week at #10.

From first hearing this 4 days ago or so I was fully on board. Plenty of songs addressing BLM have come up in recent weeks understandably and very few have sounded as good as clipping.'s "Chapter 319" at #28. Daveed is in fine form here and it brings up the trio up to 10 entries.

The new Run The Jewels album is very relevant but "JU$T" is a particularly powerful cut. The duo are up to 16 entries, it's an 11th for Pharrell and a 2nd for Zack de la Rocha who also previously charted with RTJ six years ago. The track is #32.

I've not come across anything before from Tucker Pillsbury who releases music under the ROLE MODEL moniker. "for the people in the back" is another good example of bedroom hip pop working well in 2020, it's #39.

Possibly picking up Slaughter Beach, Dog's baton for the emo rock itch I often need to scratch, we have a first timer in I'm Glad It's You. Unsurprisingly the four piece are from California and their debut "Lost My Voice" is in at #53.

It was a pleasant surprise to learn that Balu Brigada are in fact Kiwi, however they are another artist completely new to the chart. The duo are #65 with "nice to have someone to miss".

Having charted earlier this year, Mk.gee follows up for a second entry with "Western" at #77.

Ditto for Aussie outfit The Lazy Eyes at #82 with "Tangerine", possibly not the best song of that title to have recently charted for me.

And ditto for DECAP who makes it 2 entries with another cut from the same EP. "1NE" at #93 features producer & first timer Golden Child, who is not to be confused with the Korean boy band of the same name whom I presume are more popular due to being a Korean boy band.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 29/6/20
Edition No.555
Songs retire at 75 weeks

It was a big week for Hinds who was always going to move up the chart, but they can only manage #2 because simply it wasn't enough to overtake The Avalanches. IDLES rise to #3 leaving ONEFOUR and Amber Mark to both slide down. It is also the first week of the year with all 2020 songs in the top 10 due to the movement of a particular dreamy song.

First debut up this week is a deep cut from the Hinds album. Their 2nd entry to date "Waiting For You" jumps straight into the top 20 at #20.

Husky are a band that have maintained moderate chart success over the years and it's always great to have them back. "Light a Cigarette" gives off some "Let It Happen" vibes for me and gifts them their 5th entry at #22.

Courtesy of the UK a newcomer to the chart this week in The Wytches. "Cowboy" starts off with a riff not unlike "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" which may sound like I'm bigging them up ridiculously. For now I like it and it's #29.

After the 2019 they had, PUP just being them should be something I gravitate towards quickly but for some reason I dismissed this upon first listen. The Canadians have their 4th entry "Anaphylaxis" at #43.

Unrelated but watching a "Sleep Well Beast"-era live set on YouTube the other day reminded me just how outstanding that album is. Anyway the frontman from The National is set to release his debut album later this year. And yes Matt Berninger does have a name, and separate to the 10 National entries it is Matt's 3rd as a solo artist. "Serpentine Prison" is also the highest peaking of those 3 already in at #54.

Similar to PUP, Cigarettes After Sex are also riding off the back of a solid 2019. As a result a 3rd entry has eventuated in the form of "You're All I Want" at #61.

Foster The People broke a 5-year chart drought last year so this feels far less impressive. Nevertheless "Lamb's Wool" is their 11th entry at #64.

I was impressed to hear that POPPONGENE is a solo artist and this is a great first impression (I think). "Don't Even Know" is her first entry in at #66.

"Caution" only just left the chart so The Killers didn't waste any time getting back in. "My Own Soul's Warning" at #71 marks the 8th entry for the band, twice as many entries as The War On Drugs which is a random factoid without any relevance to this song.

Mike Skinner has not released much music within the time that my chart has existed but I've shown some interest towards older work of The Streets especially "Fit But You Know It" of course. His first entry to date is #74 titled "I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him" which is very convenient for the forum tables, and it features newcomers Donea'o and Greentea Peng too.

I'm familiar with enough Sunbeam Sound Machine tunes to probably make up about half a setlist which is exciting. His 5th entry "Worry Wart" is for a compilation for his record label and it's #77.

I genuinely forgot that I only first charted Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire last year but anyway. "Bootlickers (Burn Baby Burn)" is a BLM-related track with a melody that reminds me a bit of "Education". His 2nd entry is #79.

And lastly, WHARVES score their 2nd entry which doesn't sound much like their 1st one. "Nothing Left to Say" closes out a week of prolific debuts in at #88.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 6/7/20
Edition No.556
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The same top 3 is in the same order which means it's 7 weeks at the top for The Avalanches. IDLES also have 2 in the top 5 now with "Grounds" jumping to #5 just behind a big debut for SwaVay at #4.

There was also going to be a decent list of debuts this week and not all of the contenders managed to sneak in, but it's safe to say that SwaVay is certainly one of the ones that did. "Yaya" has a great beat, awesome flow and it's James Blake-approved which is more than enough for me. The Atlanta rapper is new to the chart and the song is #4.

Hailing from the other side of the US, Peach Tree Rascals are another new debutant with a distinctive name. "Deer" is also a distinctive song title despite the fact that I mistook that the completely different artist Deer charted with a song called "Lost" on my chart two years ago. Still with my train of thought? Congrats if you are, and this entry is #23.

The Hinds album is a rocker FYI if you haven't tried it yet. "Good Bad Times" is their 3rd entry in at #30.

I've seen different sources list Denzel Curry's name first on this song which is confusing because it's on IDK's mixtape. Nonetheless "BULLETPROOF" debuting at #33 is not a hot La Roux cover and not just because it's in all caps. As for the entries, IDK now has 2, Denzel has 14 and Maxo Kream is up to 2.

I can't remember who said it but the Twitter mention of this song doing rather well on the Swedish iTunes chart despite having presumably very little downloads was quite funny to me. Annie has only ever graced my EOY chart once before and she's completely new here. I think she's the oldest person to debut this week but this is the lead single for only her third LP coming later this year. "American Cars" sounds very aus-charts-friendly I might add as well, and it's #38.

Among the number of Atlanta artists debuting this week is sister duo Chloe x Halle. "Do It" is their first entry to date and it's #48.

Also among the Atlanta debutants is Lil Baby who surprised a lot of people including myself with his new single. While not quite up to the standard of "Chapter 319" or "JU$T", I do like the lyrics and rapping in "The Bigger Picture" which comes in at #60 for his first entry.

Dugong Jr is a producer from Melbourne who is new to the chart and Evangeline hops on vocal duties for her 3rd entry to date. "Ghost" is the 3rd song to chart of this title after Ella Henderson and Halsey before it, coming in at #63.

Meanwhile it may surprise you to learn that no song has ever charted before today with the title "Scottie Beam". My chart may not be doing it justice but the Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist album is a really good listen and this cut comes in at #70. Maybe what I can hope for at this point in 2020 is that Freddie Gibbs and Takeoff will somehow collab on a DJ Akademiks diss track but for now this album will do. Freddie has 17 entries now (wow), The Alchemist with 3 and Rick Ross has 4.

I didn't quite enjoy it enough to buy it but the Nat Vazer album was pretty good. "Grateful" is a solid cut from it and it's #81, her 3rd entry to date.

A song that has been bubbling under for most of June is "out of sight" from the new Run The Jewels album. RTJ are up to 17 entries and 2 Chainz has 7.

As the most successful Kosovan artist in this chart's history because I've listed Rita Ora as British, Regard otherwise known as DJ Regard has helped improve the lack of ARIA entries in my chart right now. His second entry "Secrets" is #90 and it features first timer RAYE.

Another producer that is now up to 2 entries is Baauer who follows up his decent 2018 hit "3AM" with the title track to his new album "PLANET'S MAD". It closes out the week of debuts at #95.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 13/7/20
Edition No.557
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The top 5 was so close this week yet it's surprisingly stable in the end. The Avalanches are up to 8 weeks at #1 with "Running Red Lights" while IDLES move up to their highest ever peak of #2 with "Mr. Motivator". Hinds slip down one spot leaving "Yaya" and "Grounds" to keep steady.

Amongst the closeness in the chart this week we had a new debut that was somewhat in contention. Ultimately "$he" by Perth's Muka Vhatti has fallen short for now, but #7 is an impressive debut for an artist I hadn't heard of weeks ago. In fact all 3 artists are new to the chart this week as the track features Dantè Knows and Dolorres.

I don't chart much country music on here which indicates that I don't seek it out of course. In this case I've known about Jason Isbell for many years, and already had a random song of his in my collection due to its inclusion on a compilation I got that accompanied a Surfer Blood album I purchased (I think). However besides charting his former band Drive-By Truckers and the recognition he received for checking in on Father John Misty, this is his first taste of the chart. As part of his album with the so-called 400 Unit, "It Gets Easier" comes in at #27.

Disclosure, Aminé & slowthai have all had some chart success before but never together. "My High" is growing on me fast and it makes me wonder if I'll end up checking the album out (spoiler alert: probably not duh). Disclosure are up to 5 entries, Aminé up to 6, and slowthai is up to 3 with the track entering at #35.

NZ's SWIDT snagged a decent hit at the end of 2018 with "Praise" and now they've returned for a second entry. "WHO R U" is a more aggressive approach from the collective who I believe have 5 members. It enters at #48.

There's something to be said about the economy and Cold War Kids charting, because truth be told I had almost written them off getting another chart hit. But damn "You Already Know" is funky and I'm legally obligated to mention it's not an Arcade Fire cover either! They have 5 entries with this one at #56.

I had this slightly confused with "WHO R U" because it's also quite intense but this is the track where Guapdad 4000 confesses about his issues of going to the toilet. The rapper has his second entry with "Lil Scammer That Could" at #65, and it features Denzel Curry for his 15th entry and at this rate he will have another 24 entries by the time the year is out.

Does it count that I'm charting a Jessie Ware song because it reminds me of Glass Candy? Oofs are in order but I do like Jessie, just never had a song break through enough to chart until now. "What's Your Pleasure?" is a fun dancey tune in at #72.

In the context of the album I really do like "ooh la la" so much more now and not just because seemingly it's stylised differently to before. All I can say is that I don't even feel like a huge Run The Jewels fan despite the fact that they've now charted 18 times on my chart. I didn't even know who Greg Nice was until googling him just now so he has 1 entry, and DJ Premier is up to 2 credited entries (although prior to "Headlines" I don't think I ever charted any productions of his anyway). The song is #86.

Declan McKenna's "The Key to Life on Earth" was the unlucky song to miss out last week but second time was the charm. He has his 1st entry in at #93.

And sneaking in to break a 2-year absence on the chart are Guerilla Toss. The Boston five-piece are up to 3 entries now with "Human Girl" closing the week at #99.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 20/7/20
Edition No.558
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This might just be the first time a song that references David Attenborough and LeBron James in the same line has hit #1. I say that because The Avalanches have finally been dethroned, and after many challengers have come and gone it's IDLES who takes over top spot. After getting relatively close in recent years, "Mr. Motivator" is the first of theirs to hit #1. In other news, SwaVay swaps with Hinds to score a new peak of #3, while Muka Vhatti is new to the top 5 at #5.

I have become malleable towards Max Leone's music, which is fortuitous because he scores his 2nd entry in "Malleable". The top debut of the week is #21.

This was on track to debut far lower originally but late in the week it really grew on me more. "SWAG" marks a return to the chart for YG who had a huge 2019, it makes for his 5th entry to date in at #24.

Recently The Dead Love, Philadelphia Grand Jury and Art vs. Science all ended 9-year absences on the chart, and here I was expecting to see another but sadly it's only 7 years. Before you get amped up for some Lukas Graham, I'm actually talking about Victoria's All The Colours, a band that recently appeared on my EOD list with "Second To None". Their 2nd entry to date however is the most flattering homage to Queens Of The Stone Age I've maybe ever heard, which is just as well because it's better than anything from QOTSA's last album. "Babe You're On Your Own" is plenty of fun and it's #37.

After I gave it a decent go on Spotify at the time, I initially disregarded "Moon" by Garrett Kato only to recognise it in the background of a certain Channel 7 TV show about gardening, cooking and naughty puppies (I wasn't actively watching it I swear). Anyway I'm really sold on it now (the song not the show), allowing the Canadian-turned-Byron Bay local Kato to take his entries up to 2 with this one in at #40.

This has been a big year for Aussie hip hop and it continues via Lil Spacely. Officially this song is 25 times as hot as ANOHNI's single, but then thankfully this one doesn't appear to be written about climate change. "100 Degrees" is #51 and it's a first for all involved including Haile Ambessa, Biz and Griizz.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard? Never heard of her. Anyway if we get Banana 2 this year I am going to go mental the next time I get to see them live. Kendrick better get a move on because King Gizz are up to 27 entries with "Honey" at #64.

Capping off a great week for Australian music is Lime Cordiale who are now able to properly celebrate after their less prestigious reward of the #1 album in the country last week. "Screw Loose" is a real grower and it marks their 2nd entry to date at #78.

And last but not least we have Ivy Sole who also scores her 2nd entry, after featuring on Shura's "elevator girl" which is still hanging on at the bottom. "Bittersweet" is more sweet than bitter and it's #86.

Edition No.559
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Some things come to an end... but it turns out The Avalanches weren't done yet because they've jumped back to #1 for a 9th week with "Running Red Lights". They're now level with Bear In Heaven and Boy so could they overtake them outright next week? They face a challenge from Muka Vhatti who jumps up 3 spots to #2 with "$he" but even that feels like a one-off peak because of what's happened underneath the top two. Sure we have IDLES dropping down to #4, but with two songs debuting at #3 and #5 respectively the top 5 could look very different next week. But really I have no idea.

I'm of course very impressed with the two new Avalanches songs. Honestly I'm not quite sure I have much more to say about "Wherever You Go" than that but I'm sure I will once I can gather my thoughts about it a bit more cohesively. One of the year's more outlandish collaborations marks a 4th entry for Jamie xx, a 1st for Neneh Cherry and a 2nd for CLYPSO, with the song entering at #3.

The other top 5 debut is actually not the other Avalanches song! I knew this would do relatively well but it has exceeded my expectations, and really makes me wonder why I haven't gone out of my way to give them more of a go. I will stop being cryptic because from their 4th attempt, Future Islands have finally cracked the top 5. "For Sure" is a tune and a half and it's #5.

Surprising collaborations were apparently the order of the week because I was immediately drawn to the Gorillaz / ScHoolboy Q track. "PAC-MAN" is part of the former's Song Machine series which makes for all sorts of crappy tags for other people that scrobble from Spotify. While Blur have managed 3 entries previously, it's actually the first entry for Gorillaz somehow! It's the 13th for ScHoolboy Q and the song is #28.

Maybe it's a slight anti-climax that this is only entering at #31 but it definitely enters on its own merit. The Avalanches are now up to 10 entries with "Reflecting Light" and it marks the first entries for both Sananda Maitreya and Vashti Bunyan.

I revisited the Empty Country album again this week and remembered how good "Becca" is. It marks his 5th entry with the track at #35.

I'm not the only one with this opinion but Tkay Maidza is really hitting her creative peak with her output from the past 12 months. "Don't Call Again" is another interesting direction for her and it gives her an 8th entry at #53, I'm not sure who Kari Faux is.

The most compelling Oliver Tree song I've heard yet and it's further proof that he's one of the more unique musicians going around at the moment. At #54 "1993" enters which is a first entry for him and Little Ricky ZR3.

If this song reminds me of "Nonstop" is it possible that both alt-J and Megan Thee Stallion have influenced the same song to chart? Well it sounds more like the latter artist but I'm not complaining. Florida duo City Girls are new to the chart with "Jobs" at #71.

Perth producer Tina Says has come up with a real banger in "Limbo" featuring Jeremy Beamish. Both artists are new to the chart with the song debuting at #79.

Giving Ireland another entry for my stats is Rejjie Snow who is new to the chart this week. "Cookie Chips" in at #87 is a relaxing and smooth listen and features a solid MF DOOM verse (4th entry and his 1st since "Frankie Sinatra"!) and nice vocals from Cam O'bi (1st entry).

Still 3 more entries to go. Greatest Hits are not a google-able band but they are new to the chart with "Phil, Slow It Down" at #91.

Another new band to the chart this week is Doves which gets me questioning both the current decade and the economy. "Carousels" is #93.

It's always cool to have new stuff from The Go! Team and it brings them up to 6 entries. Along with Rejjie Snow they are also looking like a snack, closing out the week at #99 with "Cookie Scene".

Edition No.560
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The top 5 may consist of the same songs again but they've all moved from their position last week. And we have a new top two as well, with "For Sure" by Future Islands and "Wherever You Go" by The Avalanches occupying #1 and #2 respectively.

I really do not have the time or energy to check if/when it's happened before, but interestingly we have female vocalists on all 8 debuts this week. Kicking them off is the second alumnus of Phantastic Ferniture to chart being Elizabeth Fader. "Encore" is quite the little tune and it's #14, her first solo entry.

There's this duo called Two People that you may have heard of, dunno. New album is on the way, I am mega hyped, and this latest single becomes their 7th entry to date. "Someone To Serve" is #19.

This collaboration came out earlier this year but apparently Ok Sure and Osopho have co-produced tracks before. "Elixir" sets an awesomely dark mood and it's their 3rd and 1st entries to date respectively, in at #37.

Canadian singer Lennon Stella was actually not far off charting last year because I quite liked The Chainsmokers' single "Takeaway". "Fear of Being Alone" has grown on me considerably and becomes her first entry to date, in at #44.

We have Ok Sure and Sorry debuting in the same week, yes my brain is doing a backflip too. Revisiting Sorry the band's album again I quite enjoyed "Rosie" and it becomes their 4th entry at #57.

So I was well aware that Mitski got some major soundtrack hours early this year but no one bothered to tell me that both Cherry Glazerr and Warpaint made some worthy contributions to it also. The former is here at #71 with "Womb" with it being their 7th entry to date.

I was taken aback this morning when realising how many Lady Gaga scrobbles I have. She has a history on the chart that started all the way back in 2011, and now a 7th entry has arrived with "Rain On Me" from her latest album. It's #80 and features vocals from Ariana Grande who is up to 8 entries as a result.

...and the Warpaint song from that soundtrack I mentioned before closes out the week. "The Brakes" ends their 4-year absence from the chart, sneaking in at #97 for their 9th entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 10/8/20
Edition No.561
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Future Islands are #1 for a second week with "For Sure" and we have a lot of songs rebounding this week without getting a new peak, including Muka Vhatti who makes a sandwich with Avalanches bread with "$he" at #3. As for The Avalanches, "Wherever You Go" remains at #2 but the result is "Running Red Lights" slipping to #4. The two IDLES hits switch spots which sees "Grounds" back to its previous peak of #5.

Montreal's TOPS have released four albums and I learnt of their existence thanks to a fellow a-c member who knows who they are. "Direct Sunlight" becomes their first entry at #42.

Ho99o9 (pronounced horror) don't make the sort of hip hop that usually pops up on my chart but this latest song of theirs found its way onto my Spotify playlist and struck a chord with me. "Pigs Want Me Dead" isn't too far removed from the likes of Death Grips and clipping. so it's not too strange to see it at #45 for their first entry.

I don't think I've been to Mount Druitt but this is the best song I've heard dedicated to it. ONEFOUR manage a second entry on the chart with "Home and Away" in at #63.

I've forced myself to listen to every ARIA Top 50 entry for over eight years which from time to time always leads to some outcomes such as this. The new Taylor Swift album is... fine, but there are a few worthy tracks and one in fact being decent enough to chart. This is of course "exile" at #82 which makes for her 4th entry to date after "Shake It Off", "Blank Space" and "Look What You Made Me Do" before it. Lucky enough to score a feature are little known Wisconsin seven-piece Bon Iver who enter for the first time.

Okay there's probably not enough A$AP Ferg on his own song here which is already too short as it is... but "Move Ya Hips" is a bit of fun. His 8th entry in at #88 is also Nicki Minaj's 7th and MadeinTYO's 1st.

And closing out the week it's good to see Action Bronson back in the chart after a decent absence. In fact we haven't seen him here since "Baby Blue" back in 2015! "Latin Grammys" is his 3rd entry sneaking in at #99.

Edition No.562
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Not an uncommon result at least in the recent context of this chart, wherein all songs in the top 10 move places except for the #1. For now at least "For Sure" by Future Islands has both hands on top spot, ahead of a big rise for Two People up to #2 with "Someone To Serve". The Avalanches slip down a spot with "Wherever You Go", whilst Elizabeth Fader leaps into the top 5 at #4, one spot ahead of Muka Vhatti at #5.

Maybe I will get around to the new Lil Yachty album or maybe I won't, but for now he has another entry from it. "Split/Whole Time" is similarly structured to ***** **** except for the lack of a guest verse from an unknown/untitled rapper. His 4th entry to date is #26.

One band I am thrilled to finally get the chance to chart is Wolf & Cub who originally are from Port Augusta, a town I have visited exactly 5 times. Their first song in many years is maybe slightly ACAB-themed, titled "Blue State" in at #32.

Another Aussie band with fuzzy riffs and a new single is Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. This WA outfit have done well on my chart recently with the huge run for "Bill's Mandolin" in particular. 3 entries now for them with "Mr. Prism" at #52.

I decided not to put this in my review because I suppose the discourse has already very clearly pointed this out: if this was a 2 Chainz feat. Big Sean song no one would give a shit that this song is called "WAP". Anyway, it's a slap and I'm very glad to see another track from Megan here so soon after her recent 3 hits doing well on this chart. It's 3 entries now for Cardi B (who has never made the top 50) and 4 for Megan Thee Stallion (who has always peaked in the top 10 before this track's debut), the song is #67 (so close!!!!!).

Any song that references Andres Iniesta should automatically make the chart really. JAY1 and Loski are unsurprisingly both from the UK and this is a sound that I can vibe with for sure. "TEE" is the first entry for both of them and it's #71.

Perfect Moment are not new to the chart... because it's the new project name for Alexander Gow a.k.a. Oh Mercy! I didn't know this fact until after I decided to chart this which is also cool. "Lost in Rome" is a lovely slice of synth-pop and it's his 2nd song to chart, in at #73.

Up next is the shortest song to chart this year and the 6th shortest in my chart's history. Ski Mask the Slump God gets in and out with the job done in under 2 minutes and it's a lot of fun. "Burn the Hoods" is #78.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 24/8/20
Edition No.563
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Quickly chasing Two Door Cinema Club for number ones on this chart is Two People, who of course have a new album out this coming Friday. I better get as many listens in of other artists as I can before then, and almost on cue we have quite a lot of chaos here this week. "Someone To Serve" is the 197th #1 in the chart's history and it was always going to push "For Sure" down to #2. Elizabeth Fader scores a new peak to #3 with "Encore", swapping positions with The Avalanches at #4. Empty Country makes up the numbers with a huge bullet for "Becca" at #5.

Some say I'm in this business to break droughts. 2020 has been a year of many droughts being broken, and while this may not be the longest absence from the chart, it's perhaps one of the most notable. HAIM come in with "3am" I must be lonely, their 5th entry to date and the first for 5 years in at #16.

From the first several seconds of hearing it, this song put a massive smile on my face. "Tip-Toe Thru the Tulips With Me" is quite an interesting choice for a sample in this context but it works so well. Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow are both new to the chart with "Tip Toe" in at #24.

Now on a rather different hip hop note we have an entry from the new Blu & Exile album. I've at least heard Blu (rapper) before but the production from Exile is Madlib-esque and drew me in straight away. "When the Gods Meet" is a first entry for all 3 artists including featured vocalist Ishe, with the song in at #30.

The latest track is definitely a highlight on the new Protomartyr album but I was surprised with just how much I like it. "Modern Business Hymns" is a 5th entry for them in at #33.

I am typing LAUREL on the internet and the year is not 2018, but "Scream Drive Faster" is quite a catchy tune. The London-based singer has her first entry in at #43.

I've been listening to a lot more albums lately so you may start to see some album track shenanigans, this one is noteworthy from Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit. "Letting You Go" is #48.

Logic literally had to retire to get my attention amirite? Not really because the No I.D. production on this track reminds me of why I enjoyed the last Jay-Z album so much. I'm not typically the biggest fan of his but Logic actually has his first entry on this chart, with "Celebration" in at #53.

My FONTAINES D.C. physical album purchase eventually came, allegedly there's something happening in the world right now more significant than this chart. Anyway "Televised Mind" is exactly what I want from them in at #56.

And because this list of debuts this week isn't long enough (and we're only halfway there whoa-oh living on a prayer), King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard decided to put out another new single. "Some of Us" has a bit more oomph than "Honey" and it does have me excited for their next move. 28 entries in now with this one at #59.

I am known to enjoy "Robbery" from time to time, which is why I was so glad to hear this wonderful Lime Cordiale homage by The Kid LAROI. I was in Grade 4 when he was born so that's kind of horrifying, but much more cool is the fact that another indigenous artist is making waves. "TELL ME WHY" was too catchy to leave off the chart although I am annoyed it left the ARIA top 50 after just one week. It's #60, his first entry to date.

Despite her features with Flume, sadly KUČKA hasn't had overwhelming solo success to date. While this isn't the first track of hers I like, it's the first to chart here adding onto the 2 featured entries. "Contemplation" is #nice.

I can easily see this blowing up tbh. London Topaz is #73 for his first entry with "Be Mine". It's worth noting that first timer George is also on this track, but it's a singer with no songs on Spotify and not Katie Noonan's band.

Everyone's favourite female Kiwi singer with a 5-letter name is of course BENEE, and she tends to do well when singing about animals. "Snail" is #78 for her 6th entry to date, I shall await her tune about schnauzers.

"Been a Little While" is a bit more lowkey and reminiscent of the first half of "First Body" but it's quite nice. Two People have 8 entries with this one at #80.

I am very quickly running out of room to write in my text box. Matt Corby breaks an even larger absence than HAIM in at #81 with his 3rd entry titled "If I Never Say A Word".

One of the more National-esque cuts on the new Taylor Swift album is surely "invisible string". Possibly for this reason she is up to 5 entries with this one at #95.

FONTAINES D.C. now clock up 8 entries after today with "You Said" at #97.

I had to expand the text box. Jason Isbell is up to 3 entries as "Be Afraid" sneaks in at #99.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 31/8/20
Edition No.564
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This past week consisted of my highest weekly scrobble count in just under 7 years, so in addition to a lot of chaos with the existing entries I do have a lot of debuts. One more than last week in fact but I was expecting more, however there were several that I just couldn't squeeze in. A lot of hard decisions were made and in fact I'm down to just 1 ARIA song this week (I don't think that's been the case for a long time). None of that matters though for Two People who celebrate their 2nd week at #1 with "Someone To Serve" (spoiler alert: none of their album tracks are debuting this week) ahead of Future Islands who stay strong at #2. Empty Country makes the big move up to #3 with "Becca", pushing down Elizabeth Fader and The Avalanches.

I wonder how long it will take for me to run out of room to write notes this week. Blu & Exile each get their 2nd entry to kick things off with the bop that is "You Ain't Never Been Blue" at #12.

Some may be aware that I've been listening to a lot (relatively for me) of albums lately. In fact I'm currently up to 50 for the year so far. Many of these albums recently have helped soundtrack either WFH or fixing my FIFA database, and the Bright Eyes album has been one of those on rotation. "Dance and Sing" is their 3rd entry and it's lovely, in at #16.

Upon first listen I guessed that this next entry could possibly be the theme song to the new NFL season (it's insane that most of the teams are potentially planning for having spectators at home games at this stage). Anyway I was close because it's actually the theme song to the new NFL video game :p Several years ago Big K.R.I.T. featured on the enormous "1Train" by A$AP Rocky so technically he finally scores a second hit. "KICKOFF" is #23.

The Chloe x Halle album blew me away somewhat, such fun from front to back. "Baby Girl" has a beat that one may describe as infectious but in 2020 I will just say it's good. Their 2nd entry is #34.

Future is easily the best and worst thing about this next song, because his hook is "Walk It Talk It"-esque catchy, but the whistling(?) in his verse is utterly odd. "Pardon Me" is another cut from the latest Lil Yachty album, which as it turns out is rather inconsistent. At #40 this makes it 5 entries for Yachty, 5 for Future and 3 for Mike WiLL Made-It.

Now for a not-so-deep album cut in the form of Purity Ring, who score another entry with "peacefall" at #51. It's their 7th entry to date and 3rd from the latest album.

I seem to be saying the word album in nearly every note here so far, so here goes: Glass Animals album is good, contrary to what Fantano says. "Tangerine" is not a hot Slaughter Beach, Dog cover sadly but it does debut at #54.

Meanwhile I felt the Perfume Genius album went on a bit too long for my liking but it was nice. "Nothing At All" is Michael Hadreas' latest entry in at #63, his 4th to date.

One of my favourite albums this year is the Against All Logic one so it would seem weird that this is only his 3rd entry. Nevertheless "Deeeeeeefers" in at #65 has really grown on me this month including when I snuck it into my pre-EOD brod playlist.

Arca and ROSALÍA are two artists that had not made my chart before today, and that's not just because I dislike songs that are either one hour in length or songs that are by James Blake. I do like the fact that I get to add Venezuela to my countries list in my stats, though it will never get to the heights of the top 10 unless King Gizzard, Kendrick or Franz decide to relocate there. Anyway "KLK" goes hard and it's #68.

Wow it is well over 2 years ago since I saw Go Get Mum live, wtf even is time. Anyway they actually have an entry on this chart now! "Veggie Meals" is lovely and it's #75.

This is a super catchy tune from Detroit rapper/singer Tiny Jag. She is new to the chart in at #80 with "Twin Flame".

The elephant in the room is that I could have purchased the entire Lime Cordiale album on iTunes at $1.06 per song, but decided not to due to "Elephant In the Room" being the one standout song out of those that I didn't already have. I may end up buying it in January anyway but oh well. They are up to 3 entries now, with this one in at #81.

I'm running out of room again, who would have guessed?!? Great Gable have 3 entries now with this one featuring a DSA-esque riff imo. "Coasting" is #86.

For a song that I would have to had to buy in January, luckily my JB album order has arrived before then. Of course I'm talking about Glass Animals again with "Heat Waves" also debuting this week. In at #88, they are now up to 13 entries.

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down ended their/her OHW status earlier this year and now after listening to the album this one has grown on me. "Pure Cinema" is their/her 3rd entry in at #93.

In addition to "Pure Cinema", another entry this week describing an activity that may not be COVID-friendly depending on the context is "Running Towards A Place". It was clearly the cut from The Killers I wanted to chart even if it only just snuck in in the end. They are up to 9 entries with this one at #94.

A brand new unknown artist making their first entry to the chart this week in Fiona Apple. "Relay" is my pick from her new stuff in at #95.

And lastly a random Joy Division cover from a band called Go Dog Go who appear to have no other recorded material, because why not. In parts this does sound like synthy King Gizzard which I'm always cool with, so it's their first entry in at #98. lol maybe I will write a normal amount next week

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 7/9/20
Edition No.565
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I had settled on my top 3 for several days but questioned just if the prospective top 2 should be switched... well as it turns out I was right all along and Two People are #1 for a 3rd week with "Someone To Serve". This was a close chart though as Blu & Exile zoom up to #2 with "You Ain't Never Been Blue" in its second week, ahead of Empty Country who is unlucky to stay at #3 with "Becca". As a result of this top 3, Future Islands shift down 2 places to #4 and Elizabeth Fader down just 1 place to round out the top 5.

I occasionally wonder if I have ever given title tracks fair or unfair treatment, but sometimes they are the title track for a reason. Chloe x Halle's album has been a lot of fun to listen to and "Ungodly Hour" the song is a real standout. Their 3rd entry in at #27 kicks things off in another huge week where I will surely again run out of room to write notes. Slight detour but I did want to say that over 50% of the chart this week (56 in fact) are debuts from August onwards which is fairly crazy for me.

Why did I write this off previously? I swear I had my reasons. But revisiting in the context of the album, this is clearly one of Alex the Astronaut's best songs to date. "I Think You're Great" puts her up to 6 entries in at #29.

The new Two People album is good, fyi. "Breaking the Silence" is probably one of their most poppiest songs ever but it's still distinctly them. It debuts at #32.

Sam Windley is apparently from the Central Coast so I wonder if she supports the mighty Mariners? "Briefcases" can be filed adjacent to Courtney Barnett not only for lovely guitar work but also excellent Australian songwriting. Her debut entry is #39.

The boys are back in town bow, bow, booooowwwww [2] Temples have followed things up quickly after last year's album but keep in mind I was quite late on it. "Paraphernalia" is rather fun and so I hope an album isn't far away. Their 18th entry is #48.

dave the band are apparently from Newcastle so I wonder if they support the mighty Jets? No but I was quite surprised that this sort of Cloud Nothings-sounding Aussie band stood out to me as this was more of the sort of thing I would have fixated on several years ago but not as much now. Nevertheless "Fine!" does not debut at #3, #6, #9, #36, #39, #63, #69, #93 or #96, and I won't ask them to sock it to me one more time as more good music will do. But it does debut at #51, their first entry to date.

This feels like a Spotify generated algorithm for Gen Z kids that have just discovered what a Mac DeMarco and a Beach House is, but anyway. Nicolas Muñoz is Chilean born but counts as Norwegian for my stats, with the first entry of his project titled boy pablo. "Rest Up" is pretty sweet and it's #54.

A terrific birthday present for me during the week was a new Children Collide single, of course they were thinking of me. "Funeral For A Ghost" is much the same of what they do well and it's #60, their 19th entry to date.

My brother recommended Hamilton to me which I haven't watched yet, but I promise I am getting my government-mandated new Daveed Diggs content. I say that because there's a new clipping. album on the way and the first teaser track is rad. "Say the Name" puts the trio up to 11 entries, in at #62.

Glass Animals are suspiciously high on my lastie most played in the past 90 days because the album has so many songs on it, but I can confirm that "Space Ghost Coast To Coast" is one of them (this sounds like shade, just to clarify, the album is good ). Up to 14 entries now, this one at #64.

I actually thought this would debut alongside "You Ain't Never Been Blue" last week but I couldn't sneak it in. Nevertheless Blu and Exile both have their 3rd entries to date with "Bright As Stars" at #70, and it also marks a 2nd entry for Ishe, and Aceyalone and Iman Omari are both new.

I won't rant about it because it's so lovely anyway but if the ending bit dragged out longer I could easily see this finishing as the higher Two People entry this week. Anyway "Loud" is also significant because it puts the duo up to the illustrious number of 10 entries, and it's #73.

Warning, f**king huge banger alert. Admittedly I'm not your go-to PC Music guy but I do enjoy some Danny L Harle from time to time. Anyway "Dreaming" is his first entry to date and it's also a first for Lil Texas, in at #79.

Okay there were 6 entries vying for a spot at the bottom and surprisingly I managed to fit them all in... just. Running Touch manages a second entry with "Signs" in at #92.

Against All Logic now has a respectable 4 entries on the chart with "If You Can't Do It Good, Do It Hard" at #93, a first for Lydia Lunch.

The Professionals is actually a collab between Madlib and Oh No [s]I should have regrets but I don't[/s], whose album earlier this year spawned a number of failed attempts to crack this chart. So it makes sense that they get Freddie Gibbs on a separate single which allows them to finally make it "The Next Day" is #96, it's a 12th entry for Madlib, 1st for Oh No, and 18th for Gibbs.

I have gone well beyond the text box now and I'm even approaching the length of last week. Anyway it's a debut entry for Open Mike Eagle, which comes across like I'm finally giving in to Fantanocore but "Bucciarati" could easily pass as a KAYTRANADA song. At #97, it's his first entry to date and Kari Faux's 2nd.

Oh she's kings but a queens, a little bit queens- htsi, Ava Max had evaded the chart last week but sneaks in to help out my depleted IPAC/personal chart shared entry situation. As much as this is nice, for my sake let's hope that "WAP" can have some longevity on both fronts. "Kings & Queens" is #99, her 2nd entry to date.

If you remember The Boat People as being a band that made my chart 3 times a decade ago, well done! fyi "Echo Stick Guitars" still slays your faves. All these years later, my lack of auditing through my Facebook likes (not that I would likely remove TBP) has resulted in me discovering that the keyboardist has just put out an album. "Tambourines" by Robin Waters is a distinctly Australian indie rock sound reminding me a bit of The Ocean Party, not just for the good parts but also for the slightly frustrating quiet production. But the fast pace and catchy melody reeled me in at least somewhat because it sneaks in at #100, his 1st solo entry to date.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 14/9/20
Edition No.566
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Just when you thought Two People were unstoppable again, a song that has been in the chart for even longer becomes the new #1! Empty Country reaches the summit with "Becca", with last week's top 2 each moving down a spot, and Future Islands and Elizabeth Fader both retaining #4 and #5 respectively. It's worth pointing out that despite my recent stanning of Cymbals Eat Guitars/Empty Country, "Becca" is the 1st Joseph D'Agostino song to hit the top spot on the chart.

Ever since Aaron Mooy left Brighton (no not the one with an abundance of walking Karens) I was concerned that the entire town was doomed, but it turns out The Magic Gang exist. "Take Back The Track" is a catchy singalong tune and it marks their first entry to date, in at #46.

The new Future Islands debut is a slightly different mood to their other current entry. "Thrill" is perhaps them drowning in moodier influences but it's gorgeous. It's #55, their 5th entry to date.

The Tkay Maidza EP was fun and "Grasshopper" comes out top of the [s]vermin[/s] tracks I didn't know before. It's her 9th entry to date in at #57.

I would love a song called "Offside", "Overruled By VAR", or "West Ham Are Goddamn Horse Shit", but for now "Red Card" in at #61 is another clearly British rap tune referencing the world game to make the chart. Frisco is the main artist here and he has his 1st entry, as does Jammer, JME and Shorty. Noteworthy is that Skepta (JME's brother) has his 3rd entry.

Is it a good time to reference Augie March because traaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiin. Two People are from Melbourne so they are clearly referencing the chad V-Line train services over the virgin Metro train services. "The Line" comes in at #64.

I can see this growing on me further, and not just because Biig Piig is a fun name to type. "Don't Turn Around" is her 1st entry in at #68.

Two People turn up the RÜFÜS DU SOL shade to 11. Or maybe they were trying to guess the song on the radio and it turned out to be something else. Anyway, "I Was Wrong Thinking You Were Right" puts them up to 12 entries coming in at #73.

I generally find Wongo's productions to be so tidy and clean, despite the fact his 3 entries to date on this chart all do different things. "Real Love" is a true banger in at #78, and it's a 1st entry for Mia Milla.

Also notching up a 3rd entry this week is EAST AV3, in what has been a decent week for South Australian hip hop (did I mention this in some other week earlier this year lol). "rosé + sashimi" comes in at #84.

And because I gotta get thru this commentary a bit quicker, Hermitude have 7 entries and Daniel Bedingfield has his 1st with "Spotlight" at #91.

There are a number of similar sounds I hear in "Sweetness" by Sweet Whirl and shockingly many of them are sweet. It's #98, the Melburnian's 1st entry to date.

And Greatest Hits can lay claim to having hits, with this being a second entry. "Growler, A Little Bit Of Everyone" squeezes in at #99 to close out a thankfully less chaotic week.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 21/9/20
Edition No.567
Songs retire at 75 weeks

A lot of things happened on the chart this week. In addition to having a pair of uncharacteristically high re-entries, I also had a few decent jumps that have shaked up the order of the top quarter. None of that bothers Empty Country though, with "Becca" capping off a second week at #1. It had some distance over "Someone To Serve" still at #2, but Future Islands rebound up to #3 with "For Sure". To close things off, we have two new peaks into the top 5 in the form of ONEFOUR at #4 and Fontaines D.C. at #5.

When people ask me what music I am into, I can now genuinely respond by saying in a funny voice I like a very much Korky Buchek, which is fortuitous of course because Borat is easily in my top 5 films of all time. There is even a version of "Bing Bong Bing" on YouTube which may or may not be fanmade, but in any case it's first-timer Sydney producer duo Korky Buchek that appear to have borrowed the Borat reference for their name, very nice high five. Lil Spacely is the main artist on "Husky" which is just as much of a banger as "100 Degrees", it marks his 2nd entry with this one in at #25.

It may not be stylised quite in the way I want it but Surf Trash is an excellent band name. It's also the Aussie landfill indie that I want in my life right now (well, always), and it struck a chord with me pretty quickly. They are new to the chart with "Wrong or Right" at #35.

Ever wanted a song that sounds like SOPHIE producing for Sigur Rós? It's not quite that wild but for Jónsi standards I would argue it certainly is. Following on from his main band's 2 entries, this is his first solo entry to date with "Swill" at #48.

There are a number of possible Alex the Astronaut choices I could have made but it really had to be "Caught In The Middle". Much like her best tunes, it puts a big smile on my face each time. Up to 7 entries now at #57.

It's important to note that the new Taylor Swift album is not the only Aaron Dessner-produced music going around. Hannah Georgas has a really nice voice and she is new to the chart, with "That Emotion" at #61.

So many of my favourite artists have made triumphant returns this month, and just a reminder that Kendrick Lamar doesn't have long left this calendar year. Anyway I like a very much Django Django, who are climbing their way up my all-time list with 22 entries now. "Spirals" is spelt correctly and it's #63.

I may or may not get time to add it as a statistic that I wanted to include a while back but never got around to, so I can at least say now it has been a little while since I've charted an entire album. Two People have achieved that feat with ease as album closer "Under the Hood" comes in at #65. 9 out of 9 from the album, it's the duo's 13th entry to date.

I downloaded the Cloud Nothings LP without properly giving it a go, which may seem like weak-minded impulse buying but hey it was from Bandcamp. "The Sound Of Everyone" is thus far my pick from it, putting them up to 9 entries with this one in at #nice.

Totally aus-charts-core so it's only a matter of time before I nominate it on the ACI to see what happens. San Mei first broke into my chart as a feature on a Wongo song, who is also in the chart on unrelated business, but "Midnight" is her 2nd entry in at #75.

A song from much earlier this year but it's still newer than half the ARIA chart right now probably. "I Shall Be Free" marks a second entry for Hot Snakes, who of course share the same lead singer as iconic irish band Obits. It's in at #82.

Calling a song "Two Feet" is surely just taking the piss in trying to get onto this chart. But nevertheless I fell for it because Young Franco now has a 3rd entry, featuring first-time entrants Pell and Dana Williams, with the track in at #86.

The new King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard single is quite eccentric yet somewhat rough around the edges, and while it may not be "Planet B" it's fun in its own way. "Straws In the Wind" at #93 marks their 29th entry to date.

Fontaines D.C. have racked up 9 entries in such a short space of time, and there's still a chance they could get inducted before this album cycle is out. "A Lucid Dream" is yet another ploy to invite me in, but it manages to squeeze in at #98.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 28/9/20
Edition No.568
Songs retire at 75 weeks

"Becca" matches "Someone To Serve" and "For Sure" in achieving 3 weeks at #1. The top 5 is in fact a triple decker sandwich with #1 bread, as ONEFOUR move up to #2 with "Home and Away" and Fontaines D.C. also get a new peak at #4 with "Televised Mind".

It's wild that you can potentially make silly predictions of who will collaborate on the same Avalanches song by randomising a list of notable and/or semi-popular artists, and theoretically coming up with a plausible result. I am of course so excited for the LP dropping in December even though we've already heard a decent chunk of it. "Take Care In Your Dreaming" is the latest chonky boi of a song with contributions from Denzel Curry, Tricky and Sampa the Great. It keeps the same themes of death and contemplation mixed in with the dreamy sounds and I love the result. The song debuts at #15, and with entries it's 12 for The Avalanches, 16 for Denzel, a first for Tricky and 2 for Sampa.

I would say that "YES!" by KYLE was a success, so as there are many other Drums songs that rappers could potentially sample, I say why not again? This again could call for a randomiser as it may be needed in the future. It makes sense that not long after its memeification, "Money" is the song chosen and it's rapper Smino and producer Monte Booker taking the reigns on "Backstage Pass". The result is excellent which is why it really challenged The Avalanches for highest debut of the week. It's #18, with Smino up to 2 entries, Monte Booker on 1 and The Drums are officially credited this time so they have 13.

I'm all for bands maturing, if anything it's non-negotiable at times, but in the case of San Cisco I just found their new album to be less fun. While it was okay, it just didn't hit the way I wanted it to. In any case "Alone" bucks the trend and it's quite a decent cut, giving them a dozen entries to date in at #24.

It's possibly been a similar issue for Everything Everything this year as I haven't clicked with a number of tracks until now. "Big Climb" is super catchy and it marks their 9th entry, in at #40.

One of my first impressions for Skegss' new single was remarking just how much Ben Reed's vocals r
