IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 4/1/21
Edition No.582
Songs retire at 75 weeks

New year, new #1. In fact NAV is on top of both of my charts which is not something I saw coming two months ago. "Friends & Family" just edges out For Those I Love which falls to #2. It was unlucky for System of a Down who are #3 with their #1 chances potentially dashed. Something that has been brewing over the Xmas/NY period is "'96 Neve Campbell" by clipping. jumping up in a big way. It's up to #4 after being #63 a few weeks ago and rebounding to its previous peak of #22 last week. It's so intense and fun and could give things a big shake up this month. Meanwhile, the two Avalanches songs in the top 10 have been jumping ahead of each other each week like a game of leap frog, and the result is "We Go On" comes in for a new peak at #5.

My debuts are going to be a little all over the place for now as I get my EOY work under control and start to ease into actual 2021 material that gets released. It's fair to say I have been very busy doing the former, and the result is I've already gone through everything from 2020 added to my iTunes library up until a few weeks ago, and everything since then of course is made up of very recent debuts and albums I've added anyway. As a result I had pretty much cleaned up my weekly Spotify playlists as of last week and amalgamated it into my very ugly mega playlist [s][still really f**king sad]of doom[/s]. There are only a few songs that managed to survive the big pre-EOY cull and one of them is "Outside". Boogie of "I Was on the Block" by YG fame now goes by WESTSIDE BOOGIE which makes this his 2nd entry. Also on board is Joey Bada$$ who has a much more detailed chart history, first coming in nearly 7 years ago and this is his 7th entry. The song is rad btw, it's #22.

This is probably the actual start of the chaos because when I revisited the now quite old Purity Ring album, "sinew" stood out for me much more. That moody synth line is hella catchy. The Canadian duo is #30 for their 8th entry.

I don't think I'm going to back into the well for many more full-length album listens because this huge playlist is already enough work, but I was able to sneak in a listen of The Wytches' LP. Title track "Three Mile Ditch" is really solid and it makes for their 2nd entry to date at #52.

Nilüfer Yanya has established herself as slightly more than an occasional charter at this point, following up 3 entries from 2019 for her 4th today. "Same Damn Luck" is #76.

Righto, another Spillage Village thing. "Hapi" is pure gospel fun with some really lovely riffs and vocal performances all round. At #81, the artists involved are Benji. (1st entry), EARTHGANG (4th), Mereba (1st) and Big Rube (1st).

I did tweet that my album of the year is so tight at the moment, and IDLES are definitely part of that race for now. Consent anthem "Ne Touche Pas Moi" is yet another entry, with Jehnny Beth of Savages fame contributing to backup vocals. The shortest track on the album certainly packs a punch, in at #86 for their 16th entry to date.

I'm always on the lookout for anything that slowthai releases given the quality of his features and solo work. "Thoughts" closes out the week at #95, his 6th entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 11/1/21
Edition No.583
Songs retire at 75 weeks

My mega playlist is all but over. I started with 643 songs, which I then whittled down to 86, and then lastly to 24 songs, all of which debut this week along with 3 others. It sets me up for a very exciting EOY at the start of next month, which gives me more time than ever for these new (to me) tunes to make a proper impression rather than a last-minute one. It's my equal-third most debuts in a week ever too, so the chaos is truly real. It only went so far though as NAV maintains his unbeaten 2021 record with 2 weeks at #1. For Those I Love equally spends another week at #2, ahead of a big rise for IDLES up to #3 with "Carcinogenic" becoming a big challenger for next week. But then the chaos begins at #4, with Curtis Waters debuting with the steel chair out of nowhere, and amazingly Pop Smoke at #5 with an uppercut that I was equally not expecting.

"Stunnin'". Across just under 40 hours of music that I was either unfamiliar or very slightly familiar with, this song came in over the top of everything else and I wondered why it didn't click with me earlier in 2020. That's the case with only a few songs debuting this week though as most of the others were completely brand new to me via the mega playlist. Curtis Waters and Harm Franklin are both new to the chart, coming in at #4.

I remember coming across Pop Smoke around a year ago with "Shake the Room" because Quavo happened to be on it. I don't think it was far away from making my chart actually but from there I guessed that he'd probably not come up on my radar again. Cue the rest of 2020, in which he tragically passed away but posthumously released a commercially successful album yielding several hits around the world. Just before Christmas I snuck this on as a late album to listen to along with a few others that I would then consider adding to the mega playlist which I would start after NYE. "Make It Rain" instantly became a favourite. Much like "Stunnin'", I can't believe I overlooked it, but it's all about the hard hitting drill production combined with amazing verses from both rappers. In quite a crazy turn of events, this is a first for both Pop Smoke and Rowdy Rebel, and it's #5.

As far as solo acts of previously charted bands go, I was not expecting Hayley Williams to arrive here. "Simmer" is a surprising bop for her too given it doesn't resemble anything I'm familiar with involving her work. Following on from 7 Paramore entries it's her first solo one, in at #8.

While I was on holiday I noticed that Slaughter Beach, Dog had released a surprise album on Christmas Eve. Although it has taken a while to grow on me (and still has some frustrating moments), it's totally worth it even just for "Do You Understand (What Has Happened to You)". A really breathtaking piece, it's #10.

I do give a f**k about semantics, and it turns I can say the same thing for Queensland band Semantics. "SDE" a.k.a. "self destruct entirely" is a super catchy slice of Aussie songwriting in at #16, their 1st entry to date.

Touché Amoré is also a cool band name because it makes me want to rewatch Aunty Donna after I finish writing this. "Limelight" is an intense shouty rock tune, with a great guest vocal performance from Manchester Orchestra frontman Andy Hull as well. The latter vocalist's entire band is credited though which of course I love (see: semantics) but it does mean they finally have 2 entries. Meanwhile, Touché Amoré are new to the chart, and the song is #21.

I had to listen to "We Exist" by Arcade Fire this week because it got stuck in my head so much as a result of this debut, but even more insanely, so did "Traveling Light" from that recent Leonard Cohen album. In the middle of my mental gymnastics is Arizona singer Zella Day, whose song "My Game" was produced by the one and only Dan Auerbach. She is new to the chart in at #29.

Party Dozen is one of the many projects that Jonathan Boulet is involved with. "Auto Loser" is all about that sick beat, in at #31 for the duo's 1st entry.

JARV IS... is a band led by Jarvis Cocker obviously of Pulp fame. Jarvis has featured only on my EOY lists thrice relatively recently but this is his/the band's 1st entry here. "Am I Missing Something?" is something I definitely recommend, in at #34.

I've not been as much of a Fantano devotee in 2020 but that doesn't mean I don't rely on him for recommendations. HMLTD have always been a favourite of his and this is the 2nd of theirs to come up on this chart. I'm not one of those who would say that ohhhjgjgkjfg this song could only be released in 2020 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ogtpgodspgpog, but I do like the lyrics a lot. "Blank Slate" is #36.

No Money Enterprise is an amazing name but it turns out they also make amazing bangers. "German" is decent but "Presto" is far better, making their 1st ever entry in at #40.

While I'm on the topic of cool band names, I present Sports Team. "Going Soft" makes 2 entries for them in at #41.

I've already ran out of room in my text box, idc lmao. Norwegian girl in red had some late success last year with "i'll die anyway." being my first entry of 2020 and then squeezing into my 2019 EOY list soon after, could "rue" do the same thing? [s]no it can't because it's my 20th entry of 2021[/s] she has 3 entries with this one at #43.

GAUCI first charted back in 2019 and now the Sydney trio have a follow-up. "To Save a Moment" is #47.

"Tombstone" baby. Ocean Alley are up to 3 entries with this one at #49.

This ferocious cut from UK duo Bob Vylan is maybe more of the only in 2020 amirite ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ogtpgodspgpog, but it means that almost a third of the chart's top half is brand new this week. New to the chart, "We Live Here" is #50.

The Future Islands album ended up in my collection eventually and "I Knew You" is a solid cut. In at #58 for their 8th entry.

I was quite disappointed with the Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats collaboration album at the time despite liking and charting "So.Incredible.pkg". "DIET_" was not one that stood out to me as it's a little unconventional but Denzel really lets loose on it which I love. In at #61, it's Denzel's 17th and Kenny's 2nd (credited) entries to date.

Baxter Dury should be best known to me as the guy who appears in the bridge part of Fat White Family's "Tastes Good with the Money" music video, but truth be told I didn't realise the link until after I decided this should make it onto the third shortlist. In a chart seemingly full of dogs at the moment (not the right two dogs though), he comes in with "I'm Not Your Dog" at #65 for his first entry.

Good luck if you've made it this far reading through all the notes :p Mozzy appeared on the Black Panther soundtrack with a song that I really cannot remember at all, but this one is much more memorable. "Body Count" is his 1st entry which is also the case for G Herbo and the late King Von, in at #66.

I'm glad I followed up some of my one-hit wonders from 2020 because there was still some gold to find. Other Lives now have two entries with "Lost Day" at #71.

Whether or not I'm subconsciously trying to organically diminish this list is unclear, but now there appears to only be 6 artists I've seen live (all as support acts) that I don't at least own a song of. That number was 7 last week but now DZ Deathrays support act from 2015 Bass Drum Of Death have been successful from my mega playlist. In at #74, "Too Cold to Hold" hits similarly to that band too, with the only difference being they're [s]man oh man they think they're so[/s] American.

If these notes don't crash the website I'll be surprised. At #75 "Live & Die" is an absolute banger providing Tina Says with her 2nd entry, with apparently Luxembourgish producer (PLEASE CHART AS THE MAIN ARTIST ONE DAY FOR THE STATS) Spektrum coming in for his 1st entry.

Slaughter Beach, Dog close out the day with 7 entries to date with the song that initially I thought was going to be the only one to chart lol :p "Are You There" is #83.

I promise next week will have way fewer entries :p Oh Sees are of course back for more with "Scramble Experiment" at #88, their 9th.

"Boy-U" by first timer Fennec sounds like something that you'd hear at a weird hipster nightclub or whatever. It's a cool vibe though, in at #94.

Closing out the week is an artist that has spent nearly a decade away from the chart. Pluto Jonze is #96 with his dreamiest song I've heard to date, "Walk Off the Edge With Me" at #96 for this 2nd entry. lolololol

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 18/1/21
Edition No.584
Songs retire at 75 weeks

NAV somewhat defies the odds and stays on top of the chart for a third week. IDLES have been getting closer and are now at #2 with "Carcinogenic". Pop Smoke leapfrogs Curtis Waters to snatch the #3 spot, whilst For Those I Love slides to #5.

You have to do some considerable scrolling to find the highest debut this week, in fact it's the lowest position for the first debut in a week since December 2018. Fleet Foxes had only managed 2 debuts from their 2020 album which is a little unfair because it has a lot of quality. At #66 "Maestranza" becomes their 8th entry to date.

Similarly, the Run The Jewels album could easily have had more than 3 entries last year. "walking in the snow" includes an uncredited verse from Gangsta Boo and it's a song that eventually grew on me. 19 entries now for the duo with this at #70.

I promise this will be the last entry from "SAVAGE MODE II" but I keep thinking that every time "My Dawg" is #75, both 21 Savage and Metro Boomin are up to 18 entries.

2021 music!! Ezra would be so happy :') but instead of it being Vampire Weekend, it's one of my other staple bands returning with a new album early this year. Kings of Leon come in at #78 with "The Bandit".

Another January release but this time from a total newcomer. Alex Wiley has collaborated with the likes of Chance the Rapper, Mick Jenkins and Freddie Gibbs in the past but this track could almost pass as a Glass Animals song. In at #88 it's "Thankful to Breathe".

Closing the day with 21 entries, the lesser of the two new Kings of Leon tracks, "100,000 People" at #92.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 25/1/21
Edition No.585
Songs retire at 75 weeks

NAV's unbeaten run this year at #1 has come to an end, with a new #1 coming from IDLES. "Carcinogenic" joins "Mr. Motivator" and "A Hymn" which both achieved the same feat from the same album. Pop Smoke, Curtis Waters and For Those I Love all retain their spots.

Up first is a brand new artist in Hayley Mary... of course she had 5 entries as part of The Jezabels previously though. "The Chain" was too good to not chart, earning a spot at #28.

The film clip for "Reigns" by IDLES is truly something, and rather unwatchable in parts It finally earns a place here in at #33, for their 17th entry to date.

I swear someone mentioned this song on Twitter but none of my lastie friends have scrobbled it, so I dunno what's going on as always. The Rions are apparently really young and "Head Still Hurts" reminds me a bit of The Growlers. Their 1st entry is #35.

Charting some H100 songs this week already is fine with me because these ones I was already familiar with, and they did fairly well in my mega playlist of doom without making it all the way through initially (i.e. 2 weeks ago). I'm not necessarily saying that these 5 songs are my favourites of the ones I didn't already own, they're just the ones that I recalled easier due to having heard them already so recently. Kicking proceedings off are Teenage Joans, a newbie on the chart at #48 with "Three Loaf Clover".

Interrupting that though, if I was forced to do my 2021 EOY right now, this would probably #1 in what would be a very small collection of songs. The Antlers are back after several years, and "Solstice" is unsurprisingly lovely. Their 3rd entry is #54.

More H100 hours here, and this was one of the more wholesome interviews over the weekend. Hope D is new to the chart with "Second" at #60.

Reminder that I do like the clipping. album and this track is apparently now a single. "Pain Everyday" including experimental musician Michael Esposito as a co-credit is #84, with it being the trio's 15th and Esposito's 1st entries to date.

More indigenous voices in hip hop is always welcome but especially when the music is great, in this case I get big Hilltop Hoods vibes from the Trials production. I already wrote the H100 blurb for "Bagi-la-m Bargan" so there's not much more for me to say except that it's a 1st entry each for Birdz and Fred Leone respectively, in at #85.

This was also very close two weeks ago and I forgot that it was also on FIFA! The late Mac Miller has 3 entries now with "Blue World" at #91, the penultimate H100 entry of the week.

Of course there is the school of thought that there has only been one song released in 2021 so far, and it's "drivers license". It's #95, and unsurprisingly a 1st entry for Olivia Rodrigo.

The Victorian Premier is in my chart and to that I say 🍺

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 1/2/21
Edition No.586
Songs retire at 75 weeks

IDLES occupy the top two positions with "Carcinogenic" staying at #1, and jumping up to #2 with "Kill Them With Kindness". Curtis Waters managed 4 weeks all at #4 which was unintentional but fun. I'm really busy with EOY things kicking off on Wednesday argh ~

Of course mostly H100 entries this week, and there will be more next week! I did like "Dribble" by Sycco already but the H100 definitely helped elevate it. A 1st entry in at #44.

The only actual 2021 song this week lol flop. Manu Crooks has been close before but finally makes it in with "Don't Cross the Line", which sort of borrows the same riff as "Lemonade" and "positions" but oh well. Hooligan Hefs is also on board and it's his 2nd, this one is #56.

A solid H100 #100, and dare I say there's one word that describes the song in general. BENEE is up to 7 entries (wow tbh!) with "Kool" at #65. What is not kool is that this is the only non-Australian entry of the week, and not that I have the time to check but that would have been a very rare statistic to occur.

Genesis Owusu has some recent success to build on which helps. He is #80 with 3rd entry "Don't Need You".

An annual tradition is for me to throw in the obligatory FISHER song post-H100. Indeed I really like "Freaks", it's #86 for his 3rd entry.

And lastly a song that wasn't far off my final shortlist earlier this year, "Germaphobe" by Hockey Dad at #95. It closes out the week and it's their 7th entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 8/2/21
Edition No.587
Songs retire at 75 weeks

It was between two IDLES songs for top spot again this week, but "Carcinogenic" remained too strong and keeps its spot for a third week. Zella Day is up to #3 with "My Game" with potential to go even higher. As a result, NAV is down to #4 but Pop Smoke hangs on at #5.

The last week where 2020 songs will debut and obviously it's all H100-related. However most of the top debuts are actually new songs which is hopefully a healthy sign for my charts. Winona Oak tops the hefty list of 20 new entries, in at "Winter Rain" at #25 for the Swede's 1st entry.

This is not what I expected from bbno$ of all people, as it's certainly nothing like "Lalala". His 2nd entry "help herself" is #27 with newcomer Diamond Pistols credited as producer.

This next entry was pretty instant too for me. "Gravity" in at #36 is the new single from Brent Faiyaz, who has had quite a bit of buzz for a while now and I only feel like I'm on board now. DJ Dahi is also new to the chart because he's being credited as producer, but for uncredited things he helped produce "Hell of a Night", "Tales" and "CHopstix" by ScHoolboy Q, several tracks from "DAMN", and wtf "Big Blue" by Vampire Weekend, TIL?!?! Tyler, The Creator is the only one here who isn't technically new with this being his 7th entry.

I was pretty sure I wasn't going to squeeze this in last week because it wasn't quite ready, so I'm glad I didn't because I would have had to adjust my EOY commentary Here comes that second entry from The Colleagues which features Freddie Gibbs (up to 19 entries). "Gimme the Loot" has nothing to do with "SICKO MODE", "7 rings" etc. but it's in at #39.

H100 things yayyyy. "Rain" was quite a catchy track that I knew I was going to chart after the countdown, but I didn't expect it to end up growing on me so much! It's a 1st debut for Aitch, 3rd for AJ Tracey, and a 2nd credited one for Tay Keith, with the track in at #46.

The next O.N.E is just King Gizzard being King Gizzard really. The lack of a third dot bothers me to no end but I'm glad that it's there, because I can't take a hot Yeasayer cover anymore. Also that weird sound in the background that sounds like a dying vacuum cleaner. But that doesn't stop me getting excited for the new album which wtf drops on the same day I'm seeing them live what is this treachery?!?!?! "O.N.E" is #53 for their 32nd entry. haha

Does Buzzy Lee count as an industry plant? I didn't know she was Steven Spielberg's daughter until just now but this is pretty cool. "Strange Town" is #59 for her 1st entry to date.

Okay here comes the onslaught The Jungle Giants have 13 entries with "In Your Eyes" at #80.

A song that I didn't think too much of during the year but grew on me in recent weeks obviously. Ball Park Music have 17 entries with "Day & Age" at #82.

Architects with their very hot Martin Garrix cover "Animals" at #84, their 1st entry.

Copy and paste with "Day & Age" really. San Cisco's 13th entry is "On the Line" at #86.

This one needed to grow on me a fair bit more than the others here but I'm glad it did. Bring Me the Horizon haven't really been for me in very recent times but "Parasite Eve" is cool, in at #87 for their 7th entry.

Spacey Jane finally make my chart!11! I've admitted to not exactly being their biggest fan but their stuff is all pretty good. "Booster Seat" is #93.

This was one of the H100 entries that wasn't really a lock for this chart until this very past week. "Energy" is a 1st entry for both Stace Cadet and KLP at #95.

Joji had a pretty decent H100 day. "Gimme Love" is #96.

Closing out the week with 2 entries in total, Spacey Jane are #97 with "Weightless".

I've seen quite a bit of hype for this track recently and I can hear why. In a big day for Queenslanders on my chart, "Sobercoaster" is a 1st entry for Brisbane four-piece Beddy Rays in at #98.

Joji ends up with 7 entries with "Your Man" at #99, which... aww is one place lower than H100

And lastly Skegss in at #100 with "Under the Thunder". For their 4th entry, it's a pretty stock standard track for them but I do like the riffs.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 15/2/21
Edition No.588
Songs retire at 75 weeks

My top 5 is quite standard this week while everything below the top 7 is starting to change post-EOY. The only major change is at the summit, where yet another IDLES song has made #1. "Kill Them With Kindness" is their 4th #1 from this album alone after "Mr. Motivator", "A Hymn" and "Carcinogenic". Only one album has ever managed four #1s before, being Two Door Cinema Club all the way back in 2010!

Freddie Gibbs is an artist I tend to chart a lot. It helps that he's so prolific either as the main artist or on features, but also the productions he gets involved with can vary greatly which showcases just how versatile he is as a rapper. ScHoolboy Q probably ticks that box too, but to a lesser extent probably just because he's never released a collaboration album with Madlib. "Gang Signs" is one heck of an individual track though, and an improvement on the single Freddie dropped late last year. At #25, it's Freddie's 20th and ScHoolboy's 14th entries respectively.

My rather hot take is that The Lazy Eyes are quite the fan of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Not sure how I came up with said take, given "Where's My Brain???" doesn't sound like anything in particular. At #33 it's their 3rd entry to date. Road Train???

This track from Goth Babe is so the j's (a la Bag Raiders, Crooked Colours etc. I think) that I was surprised it wasn't an Australian project. "Canary Islands" is this guy's first entry in at #41.

I think all eyes have been on Cardi B to see how she would follow up "WAP", and she has followed up "WAP" with "Up". Jury is out as to how she will follow up "Up" after she followed up "WAP" with "Up". Almost as good as this paragraph, "Up" is her 4th entry in at #45. Given I've got two different covers of "These Days" in the chart right now, it's always worth having two versions of "HUMBLE." too (cough cough "Rain").

Maybe the big news of the week on the debut front is that Tkay Maidza has finally cracked 10 entries, spanning across several years. "Kim" is a 1st entry for the co-credited Yung Baby Tate too, in at #60.

My debuts are ordered quite nicely this week because we remain on the topic of Aussie music endorsed by Fantano, or at least I assume so given he gave this a share the other day (I knew it already though!11!). "too dang good" is the first single from PRICIE released at the start of the month. Closing out the week it comes in at #70.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 22/2/21
Edition No.589
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Another week on top for IDLES with "Kill Them With Kindness" now up to 2 weeks. "Carcinogenic" moves down a spot though to #3 forced by the rise from Zella Day up to #2. In other news, 2021 stuff is in the top 5 now with bbno$ and Diamond Pistols up to #4 with "help herself", while Pop Smoke keeps his spot at #5.

It's a pretty decent week for debuts topped by first timer Celeste. "Tonight Tonight" breaks into the top 10 straight away at #10.

It's about time that an artist from the NT made a big splash (the best previously in a very short list is Baker Boy's "Meditjin" which peaked at #23). Four-piece King Stingray are helped on massively by a really great chorus here. Their first entry "Get Me Out" is #12.

Surely not a coincidence at this point that Skegss chose a Pixies song for Like a Version a while back. "Valhalla" is the closest homage they've paid since, in at #27 for their 5th entry.

Not to be confused with Bad//Dreems, Bad/Love is a slightly less awful band name. Their influences on Unearthed are a bit more heavy than what I would think because to me this is just like that one I song from The Mission In Motion. "Feel Good" is their 1st entry at #42.

Chart veterans Children Collide are doing some gigs next week but I'm not going to be able to go due to various reasons. Maybe I can watch some Simpsons instead, accompanied by their 20th entry "Trampoline" in at #44.

On the back of a successful summer with that Spillage Village album, I'm at least mildly interested in JID now. "Ballads" has a pretty quirky instrumental and has Conway the Machine co-credited who does a really good job here too. In at #56, it's JID's 4th entry and Conway's 3rd.

I reserved the first 2021 album to give a listen for Madlib's, which in the end really fizzled out after the halfway mark. For once Fantano seemed to agree with me on that :p "The Call" is largely built around a Beatles-sounding sample which isn't The Beatles. In at #61, it's his 14th entry to date.

It's been almost five years since Phife Dawg tragically passed away, and his posthumous album is not far off release. This appears to be less of a "part 2" situation and more of an extended remix based on a standalone single he put out several years ago, which would have had to have been recorded many years before that because it features production from the late J Dilla! "Nutshell Pt. 2" is #66, which makes for Phife's 1st solo entry (ATCQ have 4), Busta Rhymes' 7th entry, and a 1st for Redman even though he did make an EOY list once. Also it would be illegal for me not to quickly mention how I much still love Austin Powers.

This reminds me a lot of Samsaruh, in particular "Golden To Thrive", but perhaps with slightly fuzzier and rockier production. D'Arcy Spiller has several singles under her belt so far with "Wolf Blood" the first to come across my radar. Another first entrant this week with this one in at #68.

This is on a soundtrack to a film I'll probably not watch, but I did hear the Nas/Hit-Boy and the Nipsey/Jay-Z tracks which were both good. They were both eclipsed though by "Rich Ni**a Problems", a track which may not signify that A$AP Rocky is about to make a massive return or whatever but it's a decent cut. Last year was the first in 8 years that he failed to chart and he hasn't made the top 50 with a track of his own since 2015. Maybe that will change, but for now it's in at #85 for his 21st entry to date.

oops nearly missed writing about this one. This new Kings of Leon album could be quite eclectic as the three songs so far are all doing different things. I tweeted that "Echoing" gives off Arcade Fire and Grizzly Bear vibes... but spoiler alert I may have more to say down that path next week. Anyway for now this is KOL's 22nd entry to date in at #90.

Closing out the week, this could be the start of a Cherry Glazerr concept album based on my Netflix home page. On the other hand, "Big Bang" is potentially the second single for a new album so that kills my lame attempt at a joke, but in any case this is another good sign. It's a 9th entry in at #92.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 1/3/21
Edition No.590
Songs retire at 75 weeks

IDLES remain at #1, but only just ahead of Freddie Gibbs who rockets up to #2 with "Gang Signs". bbno$ and Diamond Pistols are also up now at #3 with "help herself", which pushes Zella Day down to #4. Pop Smoke hangs onto the #5 spot again.

Half a dozen debuts this week and they're all over the place musically. First up we have this random song that sounds totally inspired by Porter Robinson but also with a hint of "Swill". "Apologies" is quite a banger even if I wish it were slightly longer. acloudyskye has his 1st entry in at #33.

I often get the artist Clap Your Hands Say Yeah mixed up with the song "Hands Say Clap Clap" by 8 Bit Love that I charted back nearly a decade ago. Alec Ounsworth is the face behind CYHSY and has been releasing music under the moniker (although originally as a band) almost as long as Franz Ferdinand have also been doing so. Despite knowing of this project for a long time I've never really given him a fair go, but this track gave me early Arcade Fire vibes and I just couldn't resist. Apparently this track has absolutely no link to his/their 2005 material but yet it's called "CYHSY, 2005". His 1st entry to date is #36.

I'm getting onto my 2021 albums to-do list now which is great. Not as great sadly was the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets album, not to say it was bad but not much of it stood out. "Tripolasaur" is an exception though as it properly slaps. Their 5th entry is #41.

Last Friday I ended my 15 month drought of no gigs, and it was thanks to a little band known by many as King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. As for this week, "Pleura" had a week's head start on most of "L.W." which mostly explains why it's here. In at #55 it's their 33rd entry, yep they're getting closer to Kendrick...

Death From Above / 1979 / whatever the heck they're called are back! "One + One" is sadly only their 2nd entry to date because I was so late on their last album, despite the fact that they nearly scored a couple of EOY entries with it. It's #68.

The Foo Fighters album is not quite a PPC situation but my expectations weren't immensely high. The title track "Medicine At Midnight" is genuinely cool and not just because I've recently given "Simmer" a decent chart run and I'm reminded of it a little bit. Their 13th entry is #73.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 8/3/21
Edition No.591
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This weeks provides exciting news for fans of 2021, and finally the top of my chart feels relatively recent. I say that because Freddie Gibbs has done what he couldn't quite manage to do last week, dethroning IDLES to snatch #1 with "Gang Signs". It's in fact Freddie's second #1 having made his first impression on this chart all those years ago with "Shitsville". It's a triumphant moment for ScHoolboy Q too, who makes it his 3rd #1 after "Man of the Year" and "Numb Numb Juice". The rest of the top 5 is unchanged, with bbno$ stalling at #3 with "help herself" while both Zella Day and Pop Smoke could be ousted from their positions soon with newer hits continuing to get closer.

One of those newer hits is a track I came across by randomly putting triple j on, which is something I still do on occasion. I had no idea who Aodhan was prior to this, and I'm still not quite sure how to pronounce his name, but "I'm Closed" is insanely catchy and I'm fully on board. His first entry is #9.

That other For Those I Love track last year didn't quite click with me so it's good to know that Balfe has followed up "I Have a Love" properly this time around. "Birthday / The Pain" almost has a "But I Feel Good" of Groove Armada vibe with the production, but hits similarly hard with the lyrical content. An amazing songwriter and I'm super hyped for the album. His second entry is #16.

As hinted, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard were always a chance to break through with some album tracks this week. "K.G.L.W." is in fact the closing track on "L.W." rather than the opener of the same name on "K.G.". Excluding live album things, this is the 4th longest King Gizz track in my library clocking in at just under eight and a half minutes, and it really could have been even longer. In at #26, it may not be their best album but it definitely ends on a strong note. (also lol just realised it's debuted next to the only other song probably ever in the chart whose title is the initials of the artist)

A bit of a grower later in the week to the point where I brought this debut a week forward. "The Last Man On Earth" shows how versatile Wolf Alice are and it will be interesting to see what they have in store this year. In at #46 for their 12th entry.

There is plenty of moody R&B if you look hard enough online, but this was quite a nice random discovery on Spotify the other day. When it comes to blatant Spanish football references, there are enough songs called "Barcelona" so it's good that this song is called "Valencia", even though I would have preferred "Eibar" or "Las Palmas" for that matter. Yeek is a newcomer on the chart with "Valencia" in at #50.

Yard Act and For Those I Love are shaking hands on multiple fronts, so it's fitting their follow up entries come in the same week. One of the most British bands ever, Yard Act absolutely lean on their post punk influences here, in particular a certain Glaswegian band that I particularly enjoy... "Dark Days" is a solid tune and it's in at #52 for their 2nd entry.

A song that I've kept on my Spotify playlist until it inevitably came good for me. Cat & Calmell are new to the chart in at #62 with "dramatic" or "Jump My Dick" according to my very deaf ears.

More King Gizz and sadly a song Fantano didn't think much of. "See Me" is #67.

Wondering if I should technically separate Ghetto Sage on my database and allocate that entry to Smino, Saba and Noname respectively. For now I don't think I will, which means that this will be recorded as the latter's first entry. "Rainforest" at #82 has a pretty cool loungey riff and her rapping is great as usual.

The last of the 3 King Gizz entries comes in the form of "Static Electricity", which along with "K.G.L.W." I recognised in their live set despite only first hearing them that morning (the aforementioned situation with that "K.G." intro aside). In at #84 and they finish the week with 36 entries.

Another recent album I like is the one by shame. I need to acquaint myself with it a bit more, but "Station Wagon" at #93 is a really fun and surprising closer.

Much like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah last week, another well-known alternative act that have been around for a while only just making an impression on me is The Hold Steady. This cut from their new album "Spices" might not be the most unique thing I'll chart this year (especially I get "Never Stop The Rot" by Dan Kelly vibes), but it makes for the band's 1st entry in at #95.

Ending the week is shame who again come in with an album cut. And it's the second debut this week that sounds a bit like Franz Ferdinand, except this time it was something that Fantano brought up specifically in his review. "March Day" is their 3rd entry in at #97.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 15/3/21
Edition No.592
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Freddie Gibbs must be as happy as the froggy in his single artwork looks, because he's at the summit for a second week with "Gang Signs". Although things are very tight we still have the same top 3, with "Kill Them With Kindness" continuing its amazing chart run at #2 ahead of "help herself" holding at #3. Cardi B is up at #4 while I didn't expect Celeste to sneak ahead of Zella Day at #5, but she rounds out a very solid top 5!

First up is a track that stood out to me on the Kings of Leon album quite a lot. Even though it's early days I'm just fascinated by it, and it very nearly sticks the landing in the very lovely final section. It's really great but what it does from here is anyone's guess. "When You See Yourself, Are You Far Away" is a 23rd entry for the brothers / cousin, in at #15.

Middle Kids make a triumphant return to the chart this week. I hope "Stacking Chairs" gathers some momentum for them too, because it's their lovely songwriting back in a big way just like "Edge of Town". In at #34 for their 3rd entry.

Right behind them is another Aussie act with CLEWS up for their 2nd entry. "Want You That Way" offers something a little different to "Museum" but it's just as catchy, in at #36.

Sort of his follow-up hit given "Ballads" is still in the chart but then Spillage Village still is too. That makes "Skegee" the 5th entry for JID, which of course is such a confusing song title for fans of this particular chart, but at least it's also not a double g so my head is not spinning too much. It's #43.

There are ample reminders in this song that Goody Grace is in fact from the Canada. At #55, "North" is his 1st entry to date as well as being a 4th for Juicy J.

Sadly it seems Slum Sociable have broken up but they've finished up with a song called "Questions". Maybe they can reform just to cover "T-Shirt" by Migos on Like a Version and then we've got something to work with. In at #75 it's their 2nd entry.

With an annoying intro that makes you think you're listening to an ad for a food delivery service, this was still one of the better cuts from the most disappointing Django Django album yet. Not to be too negative though because this is still a jam. "Kick the Devil Out" is their 24th entry at #82.

And finishing up is Genesis Owusu who has his new album out, which I mainly want to hear because of the hype / likely quality, but also partly so I can also watch the Fantano interview and feel kind of informed. In at #84, "Easy" is his 4th entry.

Songs retire at 75 weeks

"Gang Signs" is #1 for a 3rd week. bbno$ finally scores a new peak at #2, with Cardi B also a contender now at #3 with "Up". With IDLES completely falling out of the top 5, Celeste and King Stingray grab new peaks to make it an entirely 2021 top 5.

Is it okay that I continue to associate any British female piano-laden pop with Adele and Duffy? To paraphrase The Wombats, I like the way my brain works. A lot of the material on Arlo Parks' debut album is stuff she put out last year in fact, which is no issue here because "Hope" is the one I've heard. And as it turns out, it's super catchy and enjoyable and it makes for her first entry in at #31.

I have always been allowed to be randomly late on ARIA hits just the same way I'm always allowed to reference the six-lack cat meme. This all adds up to something very me right now, with "Calling My Phone" a minimalist down-trodden hip hop track with good flow by both Lil Tjay (1st entry) and 6LACK (2nd). I'll deal with the IPAC shenanigans separately, but for now this is #35.

It feels like a lastie error to only have 4 scrobbles by Nick Cave. But in fact his latest album is separate from The Bad Seeds, even though it's a collaboration with his usual right-hand man Warren Ellis. "Balcony Man" towards the backend of the track list is absolutely beautiful and not really surprising if you know Cave's work well enough. In at #37 it is in fact their 1st entries respectively separate to NC&TBS having 8 entries of their own.

I love the absolute disorder of this Grouplove song and I'm happy to have them back in the chart so soon. At #49 "Deadline" is their 7th entry to date and ensures that all bar one of their albums have featured on this chart to date.

Since crediting collaborations in a particular way is something I've been contemplating for this chart, I decided to create a policy of sorts. It might not make much sense to anyone other than me but I do like to have some sort of consistency https://i.imgur.com/xOAVwqt.png Anyway what this means is I'm crediting Silk Sonic under the individual contributors being Bruno Mars (5th entry) and Anderson .Paak (8th). Especially given the way it's listed on charts, Spotify and elsewhere, any other way to credit this gives me a headache "Leave The Door Open" is #61.

Jury's out if I'll chart more Kings of Leon album tracks but this one is another highlight. 24th entry "Time in Disguise" is also a bit on the long side but it's worth the effort, in at #67.

Across the ditch we have Louis Baker who has quite the funky tune here. "Overdrive" is #87 and it's a 1st entry for both him and featured rapper Kings.

Vancouver Sleep Clinic is in fact from Brisbane, and has collaborated with some fairly big names including the likes of Daniel Johns and Wafia. "I Sunk In All The Memories" is probably just as melancholy as you'd imagine it to be based on title alone. It's in at #93 for his 1st entry.

Finishing up this week is another Queenslander newcomer that has scored a decent collaboration. "Jericho" however is a banger of sorts and every so often it's something I need for my music listening diet. Closing out the week at #94 it's also a 6th entry for The Bloody Beetroots who clearly help on production duties.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 29/3/21
Edition No.594
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Some weeks the margins are extremely close, except for one song that completely takes over. That applies this week with For Those I Love, as the project of David Balfe comes in at #1 with "Birthday / The Pain". No other artist has ever managed multiple entries on the chart all of which have peaked at #1 (which is a very pointless stat because I generally always chart random album tracks lol). There are heaps of artists that have managed to start off with multiple #1s like Two Door Cinema Club and Metronomy, but the challenge will be to see how Balfe takes it from here. All of this shifts every song down a spot each in the top 5, with "Gang Signs" the 4th #1 in a row to achieve 3 weeks at the top. "help herself" is down to #3 after its peak last week, with Cardi B and Celeste making up the last two spots.

Not exactly a strenuous week for debuts, but Lil Baby is the pick of the bunch with "Real As It Gets". Coming in at #65 it's his 2nd entry and a 1st for EST Gee.

Maybe I'm still mentally separating this from "Sobercoaster" because otherwise it could have landed higher. Beddy Rays have two entries now with "Wait a While" at #73.

twocolors are from Berlin and are in fact two people which works in their favour, but they are not Two People which works against them. "Bloodstream" is a debut entry for them in at #77.

Another decent deep cut from the Kings of Leon album. "A Wave" puts them up to 25 entries in at #84.

Closing things up is a song that has slowly grown on me this month. Sweet Trip are a band that have been around for a very long time to only have 3 albums with a 4th on the way. Newbies to the chart, "Walkers Beware! We Drive into the Sun" is #93.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 5/4/21
Edition No.595
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Two weeks for For Those I Love at #1, with "Birthday / The Pain" matching the effort achieved by "I Have a Love". Among the movements, Cardi B somehow gets a new peak at #2 but the headline is the big jump for Wolf Alice up to #3 with "The Last Man On Earth". Freddie Gibbs slips back to #4 but Celeste stubbornly sticks in the top 5 for another week.

This was a tough one to place but I definitely like it a lot. Julia Stone is obviously more known for her A&JS songs, with this chart being no exception, but this is her second entry as a soloist after that Garrett Kato track last year. "Fire In Me" is a surprising direction for her - there are Battles and Temples vibes out of this but then it still sort of comes off as Suits-core to me. It does the job though and it's #28.

The new Jungle song reminds me of Kanye productions from a decade ago or so but then it's still unmistakenably them. "Keep Moving" is their 2nd entry because I forgot that "Busy Earnin'" sadly never charted, but this one is #32.

I've been a little bit hot and cold with Rich Brian after he made a big impression on the chart a few years back. After A$AP Ferg last year, "Sydney" is another track where a foreign rapper wants to visit the inferior Australian city. However it's in at #34 for his 6th entry.

It seems eclectic sounding tracks are the flavour of the week because this For Those I Love cut has some Flume vibes in the production but otherwise it's simply way too dark to ever be something Flume would produce. Anyway "The Myth / I Don't" is a fair bit to process but it's so engaging. It's #43 for Balfe's 3rd entry.

Developing a healthy list of entries now is Queensland's Carmouflage Rose. "Tipsy" is #43 for his 4th entry.

The only newcomer to the chart this week is a rapper I've been trying out for a while. It'd be nice if "Street Runner" by Rod Wave broke through here but I don't see it happening. It's in at #58.

Maybe the biggest return single in recent weeks goes to BROCKHAMPTON. "BUZZCUT" is comfortably in the ball park of sounds I'm interested in and not just because it features Danny Brown. In at #63 it's their 8th entry and Danny's 21st.

A long song title that I can't always recall perfectly, but nevertheless it made the chart easily. Ainslie Wills' 4th entry is the lovely stripped back "This Is What Our Love Looks Like Now" at #68.

Definitely not stripped back is this new black midi song. There's possibly a kitchen sink in there somewhere because there's seemingly everything else thrown in. The chaos of "John L" is their 2nd entry at #85.

Finishing off the week is Yeek, which is a rhyme I didn't plan but I'm quite happy with. "Lumbago" is #89 for his 2nd entry.

The top 3 was pretty close but still no change with "Birthday / The Pain" now celebrating three weeks. Wolf Alice are up to #2 with "The Last Man On Earth", will they be able to match "Fluffy" and "Silk" (and "3WW") and reach the #1? It's unfortunate for "Up" by Cardi B which narrowly slides down to #3. Freddie Gibbs maintains his spot at #4 for another week with "Gang Signs", meanwhile King Gizzard are in the top 5 for the 6th time in their discography with "K.G.L.W." continuing its rise up the chart to #5.

My wish for another "Lemonade" has come true. Internet Money might have some hit potential with "JETSKI" too, or at least I'm hopeful. At #30 it's their 2nd entry, Lil Tecca's 2nd and Lil Mosey's 1st.

After smashing it in 2018 with two #1s and having a couple entries in 2019, Saba has been absent from the chart since. "Ziplock" is a good return to form and it marks his 6th entry at #48.

At this rate Freddie Gibbs can do very little wrong as he keeps ending up on the chart time after time. "Big Boss Rabbit" is keeping up with the same themes of "Gang Signs", and it makes for his 21st entry at #53.

Although it has yielded several chart entries (and I did enjoy it somewhat overall), I was hoping for a little more from the Genesis Owusu album. Album track "A Song About Fishing" is a definite highlight in at #59 for his 5th entry.

I tried out a few of the new Benny the Butcher songs and this one stood out. "Plug Talk" is #64 making it his 4th entry, with producer Harry Fraud new to the chart and 2 Chainz now up to 9 entries.

Almost as easy as deciding to chart Freddie Gibbs songs is the joke that can be made that You Am I are a hot new band. Many of you will know that I'm still working through the '90s in my retrospective EOY lists and I am hoping they will break through more than they have already. Their creative peak was a bit before my time, and not quite in the family zeitgeist, meaning that I like songs like "Heavy Heart" and "Good Mornin'" but I'm still fairly new to them. "The Waterboy" is a solid return and I'm glad it has broke through here. In at #75 for the Sydneysiders' first entry to date.

An artist I have previously been hit-and-miss on is Baauer, although as time goes on I increasingly enjoy his production. Case in point is "DDOKBOKKI", which marks his 3rd entry and Omega Sapien's 1st, in at #78. It's apparently a Korean dish which I did not know before.

070 Beheard is part of the same collective as 070 Shake so it makes sense that they've collaborated on "Said". Although the former only contributes one of the verses, he's listed first and it's a first entry for him. Meanwhile it's the latter's 3rd entry, with the song in at #81.

In other news, Tim Ayre keeps up his one entry per year run with this being his 3rd solo one post-Tim & Jean. "Mexican Holiday" is #87.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 19/4/21
Edition No.597
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Posting a day early because I'm going on a brief holiday this week

Although it seems the new #1 has occurred fairly easily, the top two was very close this week. For Those I Love moves down to #2 making way for King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard with "K.G.L.W." becoming the new leader. Again a reminder that this is the closing track on their latest album "L.W." rather than the intro of the same name from "K.G.", but it's pretty clear to see why I've gravitated towards this monstrous album closer. It's their 3rd #1 after "Sleep Drifter" and "Planet B" too. The rest of the top 5 all shift down a place, with Wolf Alice, Cardi B and Freddie Gibbs still holding their own respectively ahead of a competitive batch of tracks underneath them.

I'm still quite behind on albums but I did come across this gem in the new Antlers LP. "Stubborn Man" brings them up to 4 entries with this one at #11.

I've just learnt how to pronounce her name, assuming that the website I came across was correct. Froukje is here courtesy of villages' chart with some support from Google Translate to understand what the song is about. "Onbezonnen" comes in at #34 for her 1st entry to date.

I like the fact that Bugs are in the chart at the same time as the two new Freddie Gibbs singles. Anyway I first came across the Queenslanders maybe four years ago and didn't think they were anything exceptional but I liked what I heard. It was interesting to see their popularity rise more recently culminating in the Hottest 100 entry [s]for "Heavy Cross"[/s]. "Diamond" is Aussie indie rock of a high quality and I hope it pops up in 9 months' time. In at #51 for their 1st entry.

Sometimes I think how funny it would be to chart certain things because it provides a contrast to a list that I otherwise take very seriously. Perhaps 10 years ago there were more prominent examples of me taking the piss a little bit, and nowadays I still tend to listen to things like "Nothing" by Beaverloop, "Who Farted?" by The Vaughans and that bloody "F**kin' Problems" cover because it's fascinating to break up my listening with interesting crap. It can still be said when a song is clearly good, but otherwise has a particular quality about it that makes it stand out where the above critique of my chart could potentially be valid - it's definitely crossed my mind this week, but I can say with complete confidence that this gets in on merit. Godspeed You! Black Emperor are a band known for very long instrumental post-rock movements (often split up into smaller songs) with their critical acclaim peak coming a couple of decades ago. They do however continue to release music and along with The Antlers, it was another album that I gave a chance the other day. "“GOVERNMENT CAME” (9980.0kHz 3617.1kHz 4521.0 kHz) / Cliffs Gaze / cliffs’ gaze at empty waters’ rise / ASHES TO SEA or NEARER TO THEE" is in fact the name of the song, it is in fact GY!BE's 1st entry on the chart, and at nearly 20 minutes it comfortably breaks the previous record held for a decade by "Siberian Breaks" by MGMT for the longest song ever to make my chart. It's also the longest song title by quite a distance too, beating out the iconic Lana Del Rey meme song from a couple of years ago. It's #55.

Okay so after processing all of that, Big Scary are back! And the album is going to be called "Daisy"! And this song has an exclamation mark! "Get Out!" is a solid return in at #58 for their 3rd entry.

Not sure why this isn't called "English Girl Named Fiona" but I can at least explain that this is a banger and very much in my wheel house. "Body" in at #76 is a 1st for both Russ Millions and Tion Wayne.

Closing out the week is a band that was unlucky not to make the chart many years ago with "I Got Burned", a very fun H100 discovery in hindsight. In my mind The Bamboos are maybe the most Double J band to ever exist so maybe I'm getting old, but "Nothing I Wanna Know About" is funky af. In at #91 for their 1st entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 26/4/21
Edition No.598
Songs retire at 75 weeks

There's something very special about "Birthday / The Pain" and as I can't stop being enamoured by it, For Those I Love reclaims top spot. While the ridiculousness of "K.G.L.W." gave it a deserving #1 spot last week, its slip to #2 is a shame because I feel like one-week #1s are often not given enough credit by me in the long run ("3WW" an obvious exception). Cardi B actually reclaims the #3 spot meaning "Up" really has had one of the most consistent top 5 chart runs so far this year. Rich Brian scores a top 5 hit with "Sydney" rocketing to #4, while Freddie Gibbs stays steady at #5.

This week's debuts (spoiler alert) are bookended up by British acts. Up first we have Still Corners making their long-awaited return after five years. "White Sands" has quite an unstoppable groove to it with some of the instrumentation giving off Chris Isaak vibes. It's in at #24 for their 4th entry.

Sylvan LaCue is a newcomer to the chart with some very strange degrees of separation. He has collaborated somehow with both Saba and Orianthi, which has my brain doing all sorts of backflips, but thankfully this track is far more straightforward. "Peter Pan" has awesome flow and a really catchy hook as well, in at #26 it's his and Grandmaster Vic's 1st entries to date.

When a 392 tweet results in a song ending up onto my chart, you just know the impact is real. I resent how easily I enjoy generic club bangers of this kind these days and I somewhat blame FISHER. But in this case it's LO'99 who collaborates with house duo Tough Love on "Woo Dat". It's simple and so dumb but it hooked me in straight away, in at #34 for their 3rd and 1st entries respectively.

I had checked a few times in the past couple of months to see if The Rions would release a follow-up single, and as it turns out persistence paid off. The title "Night Light" was one word last time I checked but it seems that two words or one hyphenated word is also acceptable. The song is not objectionable at all though and it's in at #50 for their 2nd entry.

Sly Withers are a band I didn't know much about until they weren't far off making the H100 recently. "Clarkson" is not dissimilar to some of the other Aussie rock songs making waves in my chart at the moment so this makes a lot of sense. It debuts at #66 for their 1st entry.

And because I'm simply not done with that shame album, "6/1" is #100 for their 4th entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 3/5/21
Edition No.599
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This week feels like there's more movement than usual with a lot of established hits losing traction. That doesn't apply to the top spot though as notching up 5 weeks at #1 is For Those I Love with "Birthday / The Pain". It also definitely doesn't apply to Cardi B either, with "Up" refusing to go away sliding up to #2. Rich Brian and Internet Money get new peaks of #3 and #4 respectively, while King Gizzard nosedive down to #5.

Somehow this seems like one of the more oddball top debuts on my chart in quite a while, and not just because it has been successful in its attempt to slow... [the chart]... down. Agung Mango has a second entry with "120fps" at #29.

Manchester Orchestra are absolutely a band that I should be spending / have spent more time with, maybe with the new album I can fix that somewhat. "Keel Timing" makes for their 3rd entry just as "Limelight" is set to leave at the bottom, in at #34.

Another artist that came close to making my EOY top 100 last year was IDK. Maybe he'll be luckier this time around with 3rd entry "SHOOT MY SHOT" at #37, which also has Offset on it who is up to 9 non-Migos entries.

Perhaps the most impressive feat about Aafke Romeijn is that she's managed to become the first listed artist alphabetically in my iTunes library that doesn't otherwise have to rig the system with the use of a dollar sign or dot. "Zelf" comes in at #41 making for her 1st entry.

Quickly becoming one of my most anticipated albums this year is Wolf Alice. "Smile" is definitely more of the quality I've been craving from them, it's #48 for their 13th entry.

From my very limited Googling, Dev Lemons appears to be a TikToker-cum-musician or maybe just both at the same time. "You Don't Do Laundry" is a first entry for both her and producer Stevie Powers, and I love the lyricism on display that easily puts this side by side with "Rich People Are Stupid" by Ball Park Music. It's #60.

I always thought 'sec' was an Australianism for some reason so this means that's not likely the case. The Antlers are back with another deep cut, this time it's "Just One Sec" which ironically has quite a long outro. It's their 5th entry at #63.

The newcomers to the chart this week all seem to have interesting names. Lava La Rue could be filed along the likes of Tkay Maidza and Tyler, the Creator in terms of being proficient at both singing and rapping all seamlessly in the same track. "Magpie" is #66.

Staying in the UK for the next entry, which gives Little Simz half a dozen entries. "Introvert" is #91.

Closing things out is SPELLLING, which is apparently stylised in upper case and at least that makes it easier to see all the Ls. The project of Tia Cabral, "Little Deer" kind of gives some Björk and Kate Bush vibes from my limited knowledge of those artists. She comes in at #94 for her 1st entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 10/5/21
Edition No.600
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Okay it has been a strange week. For reasons out of my control I didn't listen to as much music as I usually do, and although my faves are still thereabouts I felt like a lot of contenders randomly emerged. It could be a concern in the coming weeks for "Birthday / The Pain" but for now it celebrates 6 weeks at the top. The battle for #2 was much tighter with Internet Money jumping ahead of Rich Brian. Cardi B is forced down to #4 and could be on the way out next week, but who knows lol. The Antlers make a jump straight to #5 with "Stubborn Man" beating out a couple more rapid risers.

Shout out to a particular "Dream Steppin'" which retires this week after 75 weeks. Even throwing it on the other day, my thoughts on it haven't changed and it's just timeless. A lot has happened in the past 75 weeks so it feels strange that it's no longer in the chart, but I just cannot say enough about it being one of the few songs in my personal chart era that I can truly say has proper BOAT status. <3 <3 <3

Major Murphy aren't exactly a big name from what I can tell but they managed to get on NMF, which I'm sure is the only likely way I would ever have found this. I'm hearing The Voidz vibes in terms of how out of place the auto-tune sounds, yet it all comes together for something really catchy. "Attention" is their 1st entry at #7.

I wouldn't call Biig Piig a chart regular just yet but I definitely went away out of my way to give this a try. "Lavender" marks her 3rd entry at #39.

La Luz were the find of 2018 on my chart where their album remains inextricably linked to the time period when I had my own place. "Tale of My Lost Love" is their triumphant return to the chart, a cover of a longlost '60s song by Female Species which has been re-released alongside this cover (I must say they do it justice btw). Is this as good as their 2018 material - maybe not? But it certainly gives me excitement for what could be coming next. It's #44 for their 11th entry.

A band that was doing quite well on my chart around about the same time as the La Luz album was Tiny Little Houses. After "Richard Cory" last year they've now landed another single here by the name of "Car Crash". It's a noticeable step up in quality imo and it comes in at #49 for their 9th entry.

Up next is a song that sounds a little bit like another much more popular debut coming up soon... anyway, the last time we heard from Sleepy Hallow was in that hilarious "Tip Toe" collaboration last year. "2055" is a bit more by-the-numbers but it does the job. In at #58 for his 2nd entry.

Okay I hear the Strokes resemblance but hear me out - the new twenty one pilots song shares even more similarities with Phoenix I think. "Shy Away" is good though and it's #66 for their 3rd entry.

Perhaps the solution for rappers I don't generally like is that they announce their retirement but then proceed to continue releasing music. It has worked thus far for Logic, who made my EOY and now has a 2nd chart entry. "Mars Only pt. 3" is a collab with Madlib who had 15 entries, and although it appears to only be on YouTube right now idc. It comes in at #78.

And here is that aforementioned popular hit now. A newcomer to the chart, Polo G has been a rapper I've tried to get into before but "RAPSTAR" in at #86 is the best of his I've heard thus far.

The week finishes up with two Aussie bands both new to the chart. First up is LOSER with "On The Edge" at #89.

"Way Down" actually is an apt title for King Brown because I would file it near bands like Ocean Alley and Bonjah. It took me a long time to realise what that psychedelic riff was reminding me of and it somewhat resembles "Chameleon and the Snakes" by Wolf & Cub, but only if it were slowed down and played on a different guitar. The Perth outfit close out the week at #90.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 17/5/21
Edition No.601
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The contenders have emerged even more prominently than last week, but David Balfe remains the most stubborn man of all keeping true at #1 with "Birthday / The Pain" for the 7th week. It was fairly close though with Liars debuting at #2 ahead of Major Murphy making the likely bullet to #3. Internet Money and Cardi B both keep a top 5 spot despite dropping.

I've not listened to Liars much if at all despite them being a band name that I've recognised for a while now. I have no idea what a "Sekwar" is other than it being part of the name of an Ethiopian football club. However, while last week's top debut "Attention" wouldn't have sounded out of place on the last Voidz album, I'd say "Sekwar" is maybe not far off being a further exploration beyond the darker elements of last year's Strokes album. There are so many things happening in this track and they all come together for something quite breathtaking. Despite the fact that I only first heard this on Thursday, it debuts at #2 for the band's 1st entry.

Similar story to above for Baby Keem regarding the artist being just on my periphery, albeit in this case with a far smaller discography to date. "durag activity" is not just a big deal because it features Travis Scott, but to me it aims for the feel of a big budget hip hop track a la "APESHIT" and "HUMBLE." and I think it manages to get there in its own way. It's his 1st entry and Travis' 18th, entering at #8.

I still think I'm too young to really be expected to be familiar with everything Modest Mouse have done in their career, but I do like what I've heard. "We Are Between" is a solid return single for them in at #32, a 2nd entry after "Lampshades On Fire" six years ago.

Dave Winnel and Alst3n are certainly not names that have graced this chart before but this adds to the growing number of homegrown dance bangers coming through the chart. I am conflicted because "Jungle Juice" in at #40 definitely has an "Eat Sleep Rave Repeat" vibe in that the vocalist keeps going on about the same stuff over and over, but the repetition is justified for something that just brushes past three minutes.

In a slow album year thus far, the For Those I Love album is one that I really enjoy, even if QuietScrob seems not to as much because it always bloody skips one of the songs. "You Stayed / To Live" is also further proof that the slash-titled songs also happen to be most of the highlights. It's Balfe's 4th entry with this one coming in at #46.

Doing a bit more driving with work and at times that means I've been switching triple j on a little bit more again. I came across "Addicted" by Jorja Smith and immediately vibed with the trip hop-esque beat in the chorus and her lovely vocals. Jorja is new to the chart with this in at #59.

The Skegss album kind of underwhelmed me but then they usually occupy a happy middle ground for me anyway. "Bush TV" is a solid cut from it in at #73 for their 6th entry to date.

And closing out the week, Billie Eilish is in the 10 entries club with new single "Your Power" at #83.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 24/5/21
Edition No.602
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Liars getting the #1 spot was a very easy decision to make. Although I have no idea what its longevity looks like yet, every listen to it so far has been rather enthralling. Major Murphy claim perhaps the most surprising move for me in the top 5, getting a new peak to #2 pushing down For Those I Love all the way to #3. Baby Keem rockets to #4 off the debut last week, with Internet Money hanging on at #5 [s]and omg Cardi B is out of the top 5[/s].

I kind of forgot that I had so many debuts lined up this week lol. CLEWS top the list with "Overluck" making for their 3rd entry, in at #36.

Having dived into J. Cole's album this week due to IPAC, I can safely say there are plenty of rappers out there that come out with the odd good track but are otherwise a bit so-so. I mention this because Joyner Lucas would likely fall into said category if I listened to more of his stuff, because although he's quite meh to me, "Ramen & OJ" is better than anything on "The Off-Season" comfortably. He is new to the chart but it's a 3rd entry for Lil Baby, with this one in at #38.

The Coral have been around for 2.5 decades but I can still say they're drowning in their influences here, because this sounds so much like The Doors mixed with '90s Britpop it's not funny. But "Vacancy" is a solid listen nonetheless and I'm glad it has become their 2nd entry at #49.

Okay, so Antone Exum goes by the musical name EXUM and although my extensive Google searching hasn't helped clarify things, he apparently is Australian-American? It's certainly possible that he's related to Australian basketballer Dante given that he himself was a former NFL player but again nothing to confirm or deny that. None of that seems to match up with the synthy "Arrest The Dancer" which makes this all the more fun. In at #55, it's his 1st entry on the chart.

Quickly following up their effort last week is Skegss who get a 7th entry here. "Fade Away" is the better track too now that I've let it grow on me some more. It comes in at #63.

skrt skrt. The boys are back, and by that I obviously mean the kings of 2018: the Migos. "Straightenin" is boilerplate even for their standards and I can see people hating on it, but here's me still having a good time regardless. 15 entries in for the trio now with this one debuting at #66.

Sydney four piece The Buoys have come close on getting that 2nd entry recently and now they finally do! "Bad Habit" enters at #nice which is nearly the lowest peak of all 5 entries with "Habit" in the name ("Lime Habit" by POLIÇA being the highest at #3 and "Habits" by Marmozets the lowest at #89). Sometimes I'm just here for the stats.

Maple Glider hadn't come up on my radar before this which is understandable given "Swimming" appears to be only her 3rd single. It's #74.

You want something more strange than naming a band Fuckin Whatever? It comprises members from 3 different bands, two of which are somehow Taking Back Sunday and Grouplove, and the result is something that could be a cross between alt-J and Choir Of Young Believers. "Original Sin" is strange but definitely a worthy listen, it's #77 and the band's 1st entry.

Although I always knew of them due to the IT Crowd reference, Guided By Voices are now capitalising on their recent retro EOY success for me with an actual 2021 song entering. It's possible that they're the oldest band (or earliest to start existing) to ever make my chart but I cbf looking it up this late at night (maybe future me will remember). "Free Agents" has a nice chugging guitar riff that springs to mind the likes of Interpol and The Strokes which of course I'm here for. Their 1st entry on this chart is #79.

A slightly newer band by just 2 years is Crowded House! I was surprised that my n1c tweet about this track got very minor traction on Crowded House stan twitter which I didn't realise was a thing. "Playing With Fire" is their 2nd entry in at #86.

Rostam Batmanglij has had 3 previous entries on this chart not including the 23 he's (mostly) been a part of with Vampire Weekend, as well as his Clairo and Haim production work that recently made this chart. "From the Back of a Cab" wouldn't sound out of place next to those Hamilton Leithauser collaborations a while back too. It's #87.

Very quickly racking up the entries are The Lazy Eyes. "Nobody Taught Me" is their 4th at #90.

Little Simz closes the week with another low but worthy entry. "Woman" at #93 is her 7th entry and Cleo Sol's 2nd.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 31/5/21
Edition No.603
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This was a week where the #1 had such a seemingly insurmountable lead, only for a new contender to emerge rather rapidly. Despite that, Liars are still #1 with "Sekwar" enjoying a second week, and it's Famous that come in at #2 with a song that I did not know about until Fantano tweeted a link to it nine days ago. Major Murphy, For Those I Love and Baby Keem all slip down a spot each which forces Internet Money out of the top 5.

We kick proceedings off with something that doesn't just contend for the #1 spot, but also puts its hand up in the ongoing race for the most un-Googleable artist / song title combination in music history. I say that because Famous are in fact a three piece from London and the song title is "The Beatles". Yep - I've been made to work for this one. Their very new EP is very different, with not really anything obvious springing to mind on what they are adjacent to. Frontman Jack Merrett's singing and spoken word vocal styles are both distinct, and all the elements of this track just make it sound really unsettling but in such an entertaining way. The piano part in particular is (although at times somewhat sloppily played) quite easy to get into. All in all this is one of the most bizarre things I've heard in a while and it's absolutely irresistible. Their debut entry comes in at #2.

Moving on from one random new band on my chart to another, this time it's Major Murphy coming in for a second entry. Their album was a bit inconsistent unfortunately but "Unfazed" is essential listening. It's #17.

I'm getting more excited with each single release for the new Children Collide album, even if it's been 84 years. "Uh Oh" could be their best in a while, putting them up to 21 entries to date and coming in at #27.

The Manchester Orchestra album is consistent which is great but also makes it tough to pick out highlights other than "Keel Timing". I've come up with "The Internet", which they almost go onto say they ain't even into that, @'ing Jay-Z more than anyone has in quite some time. It makes for their 4th entry in at #53.

The Middle Kids album is consistent which is great but also makes it tough to pick out highlights other than "Stacking Chairs". I've come up with "Cellophane (Brain)"... okay I'll stop now, it debuts at #57.

A song that has taken some time to grow on me, which initially I would blame on the lack of the song title being dropped in the lyrics anywhere. Methyl Ethel are up to 9 entries with "Neon Cheap" at #59.

Tirzah has worked with the likes of Mura Masa, Baauer, Kwes. and Tricky so it was interesting that this didn't sound as electronic as I expected it to. "Sink In" wouldn't sound out of place in a playlist of The xx songs perhaps. It's a debut entry for her in at #68.

Enough people have said enough things about the J. Cole album. "m y . l i f e" is a pain in the neck to type but it's a pretty good track, in at #72 for his 7th, 21 Savage's 19th and Morray's 1st entries respectively.

Olivia Rodrigo is the second artist in a row to have a song called "deja vu", which is disappointing on the part of Something for Kate for not coming out with a new song this past fortnight. "good 4 u" is from the other big album that everyone's talking about, in at #77 for her 2nd entry.

I was happy to give this some chart love as well as it's a lovely album closer. Middle Kids end up with 5 entries with "Today We're The Greatest" at #78.


Wave Racer last charted here... in 2019 - wtf I thought it was in January or something Anyway "What Are We Waiting For?" squeezes in at #99 for a 3rd entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 7/6/21
Edition No.604
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This week was a lot more settled than I thought it'd be. Liars are #1 for a 3rd week ahead of Famous, Major Murphy and For Those I Love all keeping their respective spots. The Antlers swap back into their previous peak of #5 with "Stubborn Man".

It has been six years since the chart has seen the iconic Swiss-German duo of BOY (yes I've capitalised them everywhere now because it's not as slightly ambiguous to me as it was at the start). Responsible for my second favourite song of last decade, you can safely say the hype is hard to ignore. "Fit Back In" is the big comeback single and it definitely hits the mark, and has me excited for a new album which they seem to be busy working on. It tops the long list of debuts this week coming at #26.

Does two quality tunes in a row count as being in form? Because if so, Bass Drum Of Death certainly tick that box, coming in at #32 with "you were right" for their 2nd entry. Eve 6 are a decent-sized (and surprisingly old) band for them to be collaborating with. I've not heard of them before I think, and it's their 1st entry.

It didn't take me long to realise why I'm digging this somewhat generic electronic track, and it's because the TEEDs vibes are pretty clear to me. The Sanctuary is new to the chart in at #34 with "hold on".

The Murlocs are always the little brother to King Gizz to me, so maybe with their new material they can bump up their entry total a bit. "Eating On You" is a 3rd entry in at #39.

Olivia Rodrigo makes it two debuts in as many weeks, and this one is easily the highest she's debuted here so far. A 3rd entry to date, "brutal" is #43.

This is so damn fun and that's all there is to it. "Rasputin" is #56, a 1st for Majestic and (I can't believe I'm saying this) Boney M.

Right from the start this was one of the better tracks from the J. Cole album and now it's become my favourite. "​h u n g e r . o n . h i l l s i d e" is #60 for his 8th and Bas' 3rd entries.

I discovered this week that the lead singer from The Love Junkies has dropped a solo project, and also that it was better than I expected. Westminster Day Surgery is the project name and "Candles" is the pick from it I think. A debut entry for him (on top of 21 from TLJ) in at #71.

This week has plenty of newcomers which is always healthy. Really From are #76 with "I'm From Here".

Much like Wave Racer last week, I was shocked when checking that Lucy Dacus was last in the chart in 2018. "VBS" is a 2nd entry at #79.

Stellie entered the DIY Supergroup competition on triple j and it turns out her track is quite cool. Sampling Alison Wonderland, Genesis Owusu and Vallis Alps, "Heart Sick" is her 1st entry at #80.

The Armed are apparently an anonymous band but their sound is far from it. "AN ITERATION" is #82 for their 1st entry.

BOY are here again because they released a cover of "Bette Davis Eyes" a few days before "Fit Back In" dropped. As such, this debut is part obligatory stan-mode, part it's actually really lovely. In at #87, they finish the week on 18 entries.

One of the better band names to land on the chart this year is Dry Cleaning. "Unsmart Lady" is also a noteworthy song title too, in at #91 for their 1st entry.

I feel like I enjoy the Pond songs that no one else does but oh well. "America's Cup" is #92 for their 6th entry.

Cola Boyy closes out the week at #98 for a 2nd entry, but sort of his 1st solo entry. I say sort of, because The Avalanches are co-credited (19th entry) on "Don't Forget Your Neighbourhood" and this wouldn't feel out of place on last year's album.

Edition No.605
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Another week at the top for Liars. I've rarely been this hyped for a new (to me) band to come out with a new album, but there's still almost two months to go on that front. Meanwhile, Famous stall again at #2 and Manchester Orchestra score a top 5 hit with "The Internet" at #3. Hopefully no one uses flash photography or else it'll be out of the chart in record time. The Antlers score a new peak in remarkable fashion with "Stubborn Man" slotting in at #4, and pushing Major Murphy down to #5.

If I love anything more than discovering an artist, it's adding another country to the stats! With the new country being Portugal, the man who comes up with the entry is Bruno Pernadas. It'll be interesting to see if he fares better on the chart than his national team does in the Euros. "Theme Vision" is #34 for his 1st entry.

There are some albums that make such an impact on me that I'll develop a craving for songs that hit a similar vibe. M. Ward's "More Rain" was one of my favourite albums in 2016 and this track from Lord Huron wouldn't look out of place on that track list. "Not Dead Yet" is the four piece's 1st entry in at #40.

Ladyhawke made my 6th ever chart with a song released in 2008, so it's pretty cool that still manages to debut some 599 charts later. "Mixed Emotions" might be one of her catchiest ever songs, and at least I can say it's actually her highest peaking song too In at #62 for her 5th entry.

In this track, EAST AV3 manage to reference MF DOOM and also Mr. Fantastic but sadly the fictional superhero kind. "Olympics" is a topical song that we may not have gotten if the pandemic never happened... mak you think. Raj Mahal is a first timer on this debut and he has one of the cooler names in music. It's a 4th entry for the Adelaide trio though and it comes in at #74.

Warpaint make the 10 entries club today yay! Much like their entry last year, "Lilys" is on the soundtrack to some show that I'll never watch. It's #78.

A band that I've tried a few times but not gotten into until now is Black Country, New Road. "Athens, France" is the longest debut of the week edging out "Theme Vision" by two seconds. It's their debut entry in at #90.

Closing out the week, good ole Vance Joy sneaks in an entry. He hasn't had an illustrious chart history to date, with this being his 2nd following up "Fire and the Flood" which spent 9 weeks towards the foot of the chart back in 2015. Here's hoping "Missing Piece" can make a bit more impact but for now it's #95.

Edition No.606
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Liars have managed 5 weeks on top with "Sekwar", ahead of Manchester Orchestra swapping places with Famous. The Antlers stay strong at #4 while Children Collide end a 3,227-day absence away from the top 5 with "Uh Oh" getting a new peak at #5.

I tweeted the other day that I didn't realise that Paris Jackson is the daughter of Michael, mainly because I didn't pick it up from listening to this song alone. Following on from the fact that her late father technically charted via that Drake song [s]regrettably or otherwise[/s], here we have "adagio". It's a chonky boi of a song, and it can partly be seen as yet another excuse to get Manchester Orchestra on my chart. It's her 1st entry and MO's 5th, in at #19.

I got excited #ForTheStats for a second when I read that Pa Salieu is Gambian, but then missed the part where he's born and raised in the UK. "Glidin'" is a certified bop though, in at #24 for his 1st entry and slowthai's 7th.

Feu! Chatterton are a French band named after an old English poet that I didn't know about before. My ability to understand French is almost non-existent but I do at least recognise the song title. "Monde Nouveau" comes in at #34 for their 1st entry.

Definitely not new to the chart, Migos. "Type Shit" slaps and idgaf, it's #37, and Cardi B features to come in for her 5th entry.

I didn't immediately realise how dark the lyrics are in "THE LIGHT" by BROCKHAMPTON. At times I wonder if I'm ever paying attention to the music I listen to lmao. They now have 9 entries with this one at #51.

Following in the footsteps of fellow EOY-chart-topping BOY by dropping a cover and then quickly releasing an original single, the legends over at La Luz are properly back. "In the Country" is not a significant departure from the sound exhibited on their outstanding 2018 album, so I'm pretty hyped. They are up to 12 entries with this one at #59.

I can't say I know much about Doss other than she's from New York and "Strawberry" is a lovely listen. It's #62 for her 1st entry.

Zella Day follows up her big EOY entry recently with a 2nd entry "Dance For Love" at #nice.

Royal Blood are a band I've gone cold on in recent years but this one packs quite a punch. "Boilermaker" makes me realise just how close they can sound to a much more polished / overproduced Sleigh Bells if they tried harder sometimes. In at #75, it's their 8th entry.

I can't admit to loving the new Migos album from start to finish, but "Modern Day" was one of the highlights. They end up with 17 entries following this one debuting at #96.

It's no surprise that Michael Bonema a.k.a. MIKE lists MF DOOM as an influence, and has collaborated with Earl Sweatshirt in the past. I say that because the production is pretty Madlib-adjacent and his rapping style is not unlike the aforementioned two rappers (and the single artwork has a mask). Although he only raps for about 70 seconds in this track I do like what it's going for. "Evil Eye" is not a hot Franz cover sadly but it does close out the week at #98 for his 1st entry.

Edition No.607
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Liars get within a week of matching For Those I Love's tally of seven weeks at #1. If you're good at maths like me, you'll know that means this is their sixth week at the top with "Sekwar". Famous switch places with Manchester Orchestra which proves how close the chart is right now. Children Collide continue their impressive run now at #4 with The Antlers slipping down a spot to #5.

A lot of debuts to get through this week and it's topped by [s]KSI with "Holiday"[/s] a band doing quite well on the chart right now. The Famous EP is quite eclectic to say the least, with the synth-heavy "Stars" being pretty different in sound to "The Beatles". Their 2nd entry is #19.

It took me that extra week but the big CHVRCHES song is here. They're up to 9 entries now with "How Not To Drown" at #24, featuring Robert Smith of Crystal Castles feature fame up to 2 entries.

Speaking of eclectic, "Old Peel" doesn't sound like any of the previous Aldous Harding songs I've heard. Her 4th entry sounds a lot more like a Fiona Apple track or something, and I certainly approve because it debuts at #34.

The Kendrick comparisons that have been made here are certainly apt and only further highlight the growing absence of said rapper from the chart. BROCKHAMPTON's album wasn't consistent enough for me to go out and purchase but this ends up being the 3rd entry from it, but if I'm not mistaken that's more than any other previous album of theirs which is at least an achievement. "DON'T SHOOT UP THE PARTY" is #44 for their 10th entry.

More established artists going slightly outside their comfort zone for decent returns. This time it's Flight Facilities, with "The Ghost" sounding more like a Presets or Gesaffelstein track. In at #59 it's their 5th entry.

Apparently one of the Hiatus Kaiyote band members was at my dad's work the other day which is pretty cool. Maybe that's an omen because this came up on NMF and completely independently I've grown attached to it. "Chivalry Is Not Dead" might be one of the wackier songs to crack the chart this year but it's the critically acclaimed Victorians' 1st entry, and it's #63.

I heard this at the time and it didn't click but I'm glad it has now, because it means Crooked Colours are back on the chart. "No Sleep" is their 5th entry at #65.

While many of today's debuts are interesting changes in direction for the artists involved, the same could definitely not be said for "The Fire", which is Darwin Deez in 2021 sounding exactly like Darwin Deez in 2010. But I couldn't care less as it does what I want it to do and it's pretty catchy stuff. A 16th entry ending a six year absence from the chart, in at #75.

I almost felt obliged to chart this new Gang of Youths song without any critical thought so it's good news that it debuts completely on merit. "the angel of 8th ave." marks their 7th entry and it's #78.

I don't want to get into a rant about posthumous album releases because there's so much more context that needs to be understood before wide generalisations are made, but all in all it wasn't surprising to see a DMX album drop pretty quickly. "Hood Blues" co-produced by Swizz Beatz is a roll call rap song featuring the Griselda collective, namely Westside Gunn (2nd entry), Benny the Butcher (5th) and Conway the Machine (4th). Given that he feels like he contributes the most of the 4 rappers, I'd have to say it feels more like a Benny song that happens to have a DMX verse rather than a DMX song that happens to have verses from a number of others. But in any case this is growing on me and I'm glad it cut through to my chart for his 1st entry in at #79. RIP.

It's fair to say that Sahxl really drowns in his influences on "C4" but it's a pretty catchy result. In at #82 for his debut.

Quickly growing in entries is Megan Thee Stallion who notches her 7th with "Thot Shit" at #83.

It wasn't easy making sure I didn't re-download any Bliss N Eso songs when looking for this on iTunes but I got there in the end. Flyying Colours are sounding quite Slowdive-y on "OK" and I'm a fan. It's #92 for their 1st entry.

This is so confusing. There's enough information to suggest that this track is by Kirin J Callinan and Mac DeMarco, because Seconds Flat appears to be the project under which they co-produce or collaborate together. But there's absolutely no mention of the latter anywhere in the news of this song existing, made all the more confusing by the fact that it's called "New Music Friday" of all damn things! I'm safely assuming that they're both involved which clocks up a 3rd entry for Kirin and an 11th for Mac, it's a lot of silly fun and it comes in at #94.

Apparently this is on the soundtrack for a DC comic series?? I certainly feel like Jamie Lawson right now. And with this contribution, IDLES are in good company too with the likes of Denzel Curry and Manchester Orchestra also on the track list. "Sodium" makes for their 18th entry at #99.

And lastly, sneaking in because there was a lot of new music this week, Declaime (1st) and Madlib (16th) are putting an album together and this one features MED (1st) of "Raid" on Madvillainy fame. "All Over the World" meets the Taylor Swift criteria of having a sick beat, and it debuts at #100.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 5/7/21
Edition No.608
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The decision I had to make for #1 this week was agonisingly close, and while "Sekwar" hasn't dropped off for me much at all, it's "The Beatles" by Famous which just edges ahead in that it resonated with me just slightly more this past week. Children Collide won its duel with Manchester Orchestra clinching the #3 spot with "Uh Oh", as did Lord Huron over The Antlers with "Not Dead Yet" scoring a new peak up to #5.

A small list of new arrivals this week but one of them was way ahead of the rest. The Wolf Alice album is slowly growing on me, and admittedly I've been a little inactive on the albums front due to 1996 work, but it's getting there. "Delicious Things" is evidence of that coming in at #37 for their 14th entry.

Songs named after my doggos are always a surefire way to get a chart hit. "Daisies" is a 2nd entry from the Westminster Day Surgery record coming in at #71.

Victorian band Floodlights managed a minor hit last year and come in for another entry. "The More I Am" is #76.

It could be said that Yves Tumor definitely sticks to a similar sound with this latest single but I don't think that's a bad thing. "Jackie" is their 2nd entry coming at #85.

And closing out the week is previous friends of the chart in illuminati hotties. Seemingly rid of their label issues, Sarah Tudzin and her band have a new album on the way and "Pool Hopping" grabs me a fair bit more than the previous single. Their 3rd entry is #88.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 12/7/21
Edition No.609
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Famous are again #1 with "The Beatles" extending a lead somewhat from "Sekwar" by Liars at #2. It's even better news for them with "Stars" rocketing up to #3 ahead of Children Collide slipping down to #4. Lord Huron achieve straight 5s with "Not Dead Yet" keeping its spot from last week.

There hasn't been a major standout album this year just yet but there have been several I've been especially enjoying. Manchester Orchestra might not be the most daring or innovative band in their genre but their album this year is full of highlights. "Bed Head" is apparently the most popular song from it and it's really clicked with me in the past fortnight or so. In at #20, it's their 6th entry.

Tasman Keith and Kwame are two local rappers I've been aware of for a while but they both break through on the chart with the same track. "ONE" is #36.

I'm yet to do the whole Tyler, The Creator album but I'm sure I will soon. For now "JUGGERNAUT" is great and it's #41; Tyler's 8th, Lil Uzi Vert's 6th and Pharrell's 12th entries.

Like many it seems, I was underwhelmed with the latest King Gizzard record even if it is a decent album overall. In particular "Interior People" is essential listening in my opinion. Their 37th entry is #44.

Full Flower Moon Band are supporting Children Collide on their recent gigs so I decided to try their latest single. "You Know the Mayor" is their debut entry in at #51.

Tkay Maidza continues to remain very active and this comes from yet another EP in her ongoing series. "Syrup" is #71 for her 11th entry.

Ohio rapper Jasiah came up on my radar with "Art of War" not long ago but I wasn't too keen on it. I'm at least sold on it now, and it debuts at #83 for his and Rico Nasty's 1st entry, while chart veteran Denzel Curry now has 18 entries.

Potentially the most NSW band to ever exist, You Am I name a song after **checks Victorian-centric notes** a town in Gippsland?! Despite the production feeling a bit restrained, "Rosedale Redux" is a ripper from their latest album in at #85 for a 2nd entry.

Swedish producer Klur closes out week with a debut entry "Roots" at #97.

Edition No.610
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Earlier this year we had IDLES notably become the first artist in a few years to switch one of its songs with another at the #1 spot, also resulting in an all-IDLES top two. Well, just a handful of months later we have the same scenario but this time with the one and only Famous. "Stars" might be a bit shorter than the preceding #1s "The Beatles" and "Sekwar" (respectively holding up the #2 and #3 positions this week), but it's proven to be just as potent. Lord Huron moves up a spot to a new peak of #4 with "Not Dead Yet", and if not for the rock solid top 3 it would ordinarily expect to be even higher. This pushes Children Collide down to #5 with "Uh Oh", which itself is blocking a number of big tracks from entering the top 5, and at least for now it holds its own.

It could be the musical equivalent of AITA at least in a recent aus-charts context, but at times I do wonder just how Pond didn't manage to land on my chart at all during 2018 or 2019. I think maybe the diminishing returns from the previous era dented their hopes a bit, but at this point their catalogue is so varied that it shouldn't even matter. Quite a twist in this tale though is the arrival of "Toast". Probably my 4th favourite breakfast choice behind Weetbix, bacon/eggs and croissants, it is in fact my 15th favourite song of this week and as such that's where it's debuting. It does bring the Perth outfit up to 7 entries in total.

We all know that hip hop artists writing about sex is nothing new, but in the last few years we've also seen a steady rise in hyperpop production finding its way into hip hop as well. Pretty quickly upon listening to this track it was clear that "BDE" is combination of both those elements, and it creates something pretty entertaining and catchy. London-based Shygirl is new to the chart and she gets slowthai on the track which makes for his 8th entry. It's in at #23 but my guess is that won't be its highest peak.

There's daylight between the top two entries of the week and the rest, but there's still plenty of quality to be had. "Romeo" just misses out on the top 50 coming in at #51, it's a 3rd entry for Jungle and a 4th for Bas.

With a new album later this year it's another entry for Tiny Little Houses. "Smartest Guy" also inducts them into the 10 entries club which is very cool, and it comes in at #53.

I didn't come across this in the most conventional sense because it was someone on soccer twitter that alerted me to this existing. Dave surprisingly only gets his 2nd entry but it's Stormzy's 5th, with the two powerhouses of British hip hop coming together for "Clash" at #63.

Seen as a chart veteran for quite some time now, Courtney Barnett also has an album that will be dropping later in 2021. Giving she is in an inner-northern suburban Melbourne type, my best guess is "Rae Street" is in reference to Fitzroy North, in which case I can say with a degree of confidence that I've probably driven on that road before. Holy shit, awesome that this was co-produced by Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint fame as well. Anyway her 15th entry is #76.

After at least one attempt, Johnny Hunter do get their follow-up entry with "The Floor". It might not be at "1995" levels but I do enjoy the dark riffs. It's #82.

Billie Eilish closes things out at #96 with 11th entry "NDA" coming from her 2nd album dropping later this month.

If you're going to mention it you have to spell it correctly "#sokkahtwitter".
And Rae Street, home to the North Fitzroy Arms, spent quite a bit of time in there when my brother lived just round the corner.
hahaha good call thewitness, I did contemplate it but it felt so weird typing that out of context. at least someone gets it

ah! I must admit that a lot of my time in that area has been spent in the car driving through lol
IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 26/7/21
Edition No.611
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Famous had enough momentum for "Stars" to remain #1 for a second week. Lord Huron have somewhat defied the odds though and jump to #2 with "Not Dead Yet", ahead of "Sekwar" which was otherwise set to rebound as "The Beatles" slips all the way down to #4, and almost unfairly so because I still get so much out of it. The new arrival into the top 5 though is La Luz with "In the Country", and with a new album confirmed for later this year it could be a sign of things to come.

Anyway we kick off the debuts this week relatively lower than usual recent charts with Conway the Machine at #46. "Scatter Brain" is his 5th entry, somehow a 1st for the legendary Ludacris, and a 6th for JID who is having quite a good year.

Now that I have a song that's nearly 20 minutes to not only chart, but manage to find its way into the top 10, to me that's all bets off. As a bonus it allows my chart to take on the giant cow in a field with smaller cows meme quite literally. With that said I was reluctant to try a BADBADNOTGOOD instrumental that exceeds nine minutes, until I realised just how much it slaps. "Signal from the Noise" is their 8th entry in at #52.

Disappointing this has left the ARIA chart because it has grown on me quite a bit. "WUSYANAME" is another entry from the new Tyler, The Creator album and it's his 9th overall, YoungBoy Never Broke Again's 3rd and Ty Dolla $ign's 5th, with the track debuting at #55.

Dugong Jr is a local producer I am keeping an eye on because it seems "Ghost" wasn't a fluke. On vocal duties is Jezzabell Doran who breaks an 8-year absence from the chart after the iconic Flume track "Sleepless" back in the day. Both artists have a 2nd entry as a result of "Amphibious" entering at #64.

This entry is for the new Space Jam movie which of course I won't watch, but explains why it's a clean track. Lil Tecca (3rd entry) and Aminé (7th) was certainly a collaboration I was interested to hear even though it's through the lens of a movie soundtrack, and it comes in at #72.

The Circus Birds are comfortably the least popular artist debuting this week, at least in terms of the Spotify plays for this track which are just under 3,000 thus far. "Night Two" released a couple of months ago would not be disregarded by fans of both Nothing But Thieves and Catfish and the Bottlemen, coming in at #79.

One of the greatest one-hit wonders of my chart has finally been shattered, and that's Swedish House Mafia. The trio responsible for "Miami 2 Ibiza" actually reunited three years ago which I was not aware of before. "It Gets Better" is a departure from what I know them for musically too, and without being too critical of their big hits I think that's a good thing, as it debuts at #84.

Closing out the week is a very BROCKHAMPTON-sounding tune from Peach Tree Rascals who get their second entry, with another group in AG Club collaborating for their first entry. "Popeye" finishes the week off at #99.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 2/8/21
Edition No.612
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The dominating 6-week #1 run for "Sekwar" is really coming back to bite "The Beatles", because now Famous' other chart entry "Stars" has now eclipsed it with three weeks at top spot. However the big three are now also the top three again, and we have a Liars sandwich as they are #2 ahead of "The Beatles" swapping back up to #3. That results in a slide for Lord Huron down to #4, with La Luz hanging on at #5.

English Teacher are quite a neat band that I've come across this past week and a bit. I'm really hooked on the main riff in "Wallace", and it makes for their 1st entry at #21.

With the members having worked with the likes of The Bamboos and Dan Auerbach in the past, Durand Jones & The Indications have an awesome name but also a really soulful sound that isn't always seen in this chart. "The Way That I Do" is the Indiana five-piece's 1st entry in at #37.

At time of writing, You Am I are behind only Famous in my most played in the last 90 days on lastie; which tells you not only how much influence my retro EOY work has on my listening habits, but also just how good their new album is. "Rubbish Day" is a very catchy deep cut in at #41 for a 3rd entry.

I didn't mind the last Tropical Fuck Storm single but I like this one better, even if it's a bit more different from "You Let My Tyres Down". Their 2nd entry "New Romeo Agent" is #54.

A nice little segue from one debut to another, as TFS/Drones frontman Gareth Liddiard was spotted in a studio not long ago with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. "Catching Smoke" is another highlight from the latter's new album which gives them their 38th entry (ahem, whenever you're ready Kendrick...). It comes in at #57.

Stan mode is certainly activated with the news that La Luz are in fact dropping an album later this year. "Watching Cartoons" is their 13th entry in at #65; rather surprisingly co-credited is Adrian Younge, who although is new to the chart has collaborated with Kendrick Lamar, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and ScHoolboy Q in the past, with the latter being one of his samples on the brilliant "JoHn Muir".

Although disappointing that he couldn't crack the truly dire top 5 in the country [/laluz] right now, there's no doubting Lil Nas X's ability to turn up with big hits. "INDUSTRY BABY" is a fitting collaboration with Jack Harlow as it's a 3rd entry for both, with the track entering at #70.

Clinic of my retro EOYs fame are still indeed going, having a brief hiatus last decade before returning to perform with Velvet Underground's John Cale in 2016. But otherwise they've had a consistent schedule of album releases with the same lineup since 1997, and a 9th album dropping in October. The title track "Fantasy Island" is maybe not for everyone but it sticks very much to the sound that I'm vaguely familiar with. Their 1st entry is #81.

And last but not least (although technically, least), bbno$ is back in the chart. Closing out the week at #83 is his 3rd entry "edamame", which is a lot more fun than melancholic when compared to "help herself", and helping out is Rich Brian who scores his 7th entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 9/8/21
Edition No.613
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Despite the pairs of songs unintentionally swapping with each inside the top 10 (#5 with #6, #7 with #8, and #9 with #10), the top 4 remains in exactly the same order. And while the chart is so close at the moment, there was no doubting Famous to get their 4th week at #1 with "Stars" and 6th consecutive week overall. Although the CD hasn't arrived yet, Liars remain steady at #2 with "Sekwar". "The Beatles" is still so strong in at #3 while Lord Huron might be one of the unluckier #4s as "Not Dead Yet" continues to hold its own. Pond are new to the top 5 as "Toast" jumps to #5, with #3-peaker "Zond" being their only better peaking entry in the past.

There are multiple bands named Sunken, with this clearly being the London indie rock band rather than the Danish black metal group. "Show Me Your Mind" is their 1st entry to date in at #33.

"Dribble" is one of the few 2020 hits on my chart this year because I'm such a stickler for release dates nowadays, with H100 action usually being the rare exceptions. At least the good news for Sycco is that her 2021 EOY chances are still open as "Best Before" comes up here for a 2nd entry at #40.

I was half watching the Olympic cycling during the week and the rules for the relay race seemed remarkably confusing. Then again, I was barely paying attention. Fittingly, "Peloton" is the latest entry from IDK which is a deep cut from his new album. His 4th entry is #44.

Following up things fairly quickly from last week is English Teacher, mainly because I found that they released another single earlier this year. That song is "R&B", which isn't R&B but it's very cool. Coming in at #47 for their 2nd entry.

Another artist with a 2nd entry is boler mani who was first in the chart early last year. "no patience" in at #53 is very reminiscent of the likes of BROCKHAMPTON and contains great rap flow from him.

When I found out about the supposed beef between Fantano and Isaiah Rashad, I was quite underwhelmed when it turned out to just be a reactionary tweet from the latter in reaction to his TND review. I feel like people jump for the popcorn whenever there's even a hint of tension between two notable people on Twitter, when really it's just another case of an artist not taking criticism particularly well. As usual, I'm much more interested in seeing what the music sounds like rather than get hooked into all that stuff. Luckily, "Headshots (4r Da Locals)" is a pretty smooth tune which becomes a 1st entry for the Top Dawg Entertainment artist, in at #59.

The debuts this week are all pretty consistent in quality which is why it was surprising that this one slipped so far down. Weeks after I gave the new Migos album a go, I decided to give another listen to "Avalanche" and this is confirmation that it's grown on me more. Although it's an album without a true standout (though at this stage it's probably split between "Need It" and "Type Shit"), this becomes the trio's 18th entry in at #70.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 16/8/21
Edition No.614
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This week on Which Song Do I Like Best Out Of "Not Dead Yet", "Sekwar", "Stars" and "The Beatles"... so, my favourite four songs at the moment are the same as they were a month ago, and of course two of them have exclusively held positions in the top four since May. There's no lack of good new music but the margins here are pretty unheard of. "Stars" by Famous has a 5th consecutive week at #1 with my love for it only growing at this point. On basically every metric perhaps except the #1 spot, Liars have dominated this past week, as "Sekwar" keeps steady at #2 again. I gave Lord Huron's album a go during the week which, although underwhelming overall, doesn't change the fact that "Not Dead Yet" is wonderful and it pushes back up to #3. This sees "The Beatles" again shift down to its lowest ever position of #4, while Pond have straight 5s with "Toast" holding on at #5.

Liars kick the debuts off, and I might as well talk about them both in the same paragraph since they're back to back. "From What the Never Was" and "Big Appetite" were in fact the other two singles prior to the album's release that followed "Sekwar", and although I liked them both I was keen to hold off until hearing them amongst the album before casting proper judgement. Despite the lockdowns in both of the biggest Australian states surely affecting mail delivery times, I received the album only one working day after the release date, which works for me since I've been flogging it since Monday. And it turns out both of these songs rule, with "Big Appetite" in at #19 having some very cool riffs and "From What the Never Was" at #9 being a lot more melancholic overall. As a result Liars are now up to 3 entries.

Okay so it hasn't all been about the Liars album because I do quite enjoy the Billie Eilish one too. "I Didn't Change My Number" is easily the strongest charting track from it so far and already almost her highest position ever reached. It comes in at #24.

Later this month I'll have my hot little hands on the new Children Collide LP too, or at least a digital version of it because it doesn't really make as much sense to buy a CD when I own half the songs already. "Man of the People" is another great cut from it though, in at #34 for their 22nd entry.

Billie again, and this time with some amazing songwriting on the album opener. "Getting Older" has some hard-hitting lyrics and it debuts at #45.

Fred again.., as in the artist that is actually named that, who confusingly comes in for his 1st entry. On spoken word vocal duties we have Baxter Dury, who not only charted himself earlier this year but I'm obligated to again commend him for his uncredited contribution on Fat White Family's "Tastes Good with the Money". Because I don't count the latter, "Baxter (These Are My Friends)" is his 2nd entry and the track debuts at #55.

I can't remember if I've listened to any San Holo songs in the past because the name is somewhat familiar, and no I don't mean because of Star Wars. In any case the Dutch DJ teams up with Chet Porter who came very close to charting last year, but in both cases they both achieve their 1st entry. "you've changed, i've changed" entering at #59 reminds me of a certain Coldplay song and I'm wondering if you can pick it.

Ah shit, here we go again. Famous have had one half of their EP chart now, with this one being a track that I don't think many people here would likely gravitate towards. "The Valley" is macabre to put it mildly, but the minimalist instrumentation makes it great in its own way. Their 3rd entry is #75.

The reason I didn't mention Billie Eilish's entry count before is because she still had yet another left to come! "Oxytocin" is her 3rd for the day and 14th overall in at #79.

This stayed on my Spotify playlist for an extra week just to give it another chance, and then when it clicked with me late this week I decided to squeeze it in this week rather than wait until Monday week like I usually do with Friday downloads. So the moral of the story is I can't make my mind up at the best of times, and fittingly "AHHHH!" is an apt song title to associate with this indecisiveness. Meanwhile Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers have a fantastic name which they must be commended for, in addition to this song which is their 1st entry at #82.

Prospa are a duo from England that make house music and currently villages is charting them. My commentary continues to shock and amaze, with "WANT NEED LOVE" in at #87 for their 1st entry.

Kevin Abstract is new to the chart as a soloist as is one of the guests on this track being $NOT. "SLUGGER" is #93 and it's a 9th entry for slowthai.

Closing things out is Flight Facilities who come up a 6th overall entry. This time they collaborate with the un-Googleable chart newbies DRAMA, landing at #98 with "Move".

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 23/8/21
Edition No.615
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I'm still pissed off about the football. Famous are six weeks at #1, with the umpires the true "Stars" of the show this weekend. The players that dived to get easy free kicks in particular games are Liars, which is fitting as "Sekwar" remains at #2. There's still a chance it could dethrone Famous soon for even further weeks on top. The Bulldogs' finals chances are "Not Dead Yet" with Lord Huron at #3. But alas, even football fans with the most "BDE" will admit that our chances are very limited now, with Shygirl and slowthai bumping up to #4. Even though our midfield is the closest equivalent in AFL terms to "The Beatles" it has failed to fire for the third successive match, with Famous unlucky to shift down to #5, but all in all slightly lucky to stay in the top 5 given the competition at the top of the chart. I'm still pissed off about the football.

My album listening has been quite down on last year at the current rate so I may need to up the ante. Nevertheless Lord Huron was an album listen that has at least yielded a debut, with "Twenty Long Years" being a really lovely deep cut. Their 2nd entry is #24.

There are now two songs featuring Lil Uzi Vert on the chart right now, and during the week I got them mixed up at times which is why they end up so close to each other. "From the Garden" stands out as quite a bop though and it's a 2nd entry for Isaiah Rashad, in at #33 also for Mr. Vert's 7th.

I have perhaps never been so egregiously Trojan horsed like this before. 5SOS member Luke Hemmings has dropped a new album which has been unsurprisingly quite successful on streaming, and the one remarkable thing about this track is how it's almost better than anything Tame Impala dropped last year. "Motion" is pretty cool and this year is so bizarre, with this in for his 1st entry at #45.

The Liars album has been rocking my socks off. "My Pulse to Ponder" is a 4th entry in at #63.

Decius are a collaboration involving one or some of the members of Fat White Family. With a look at their song titles and social media, it's not difficult to see some of the themes with what they're going for, not that I care though as this is quite a house banger. The track is titled "Masculine Encounter II" and it's #77 for their 1st entry.

Closing out proceedings is another album track, with "Blue Eyed Runner" having some really love moments. It's a 4th entry for The Murlocs debuting at #83.

Edition No.616
Songs retire at 75 weeks

If I had a dollar for every time I said that the chart is very competitive at the moment... well I'd have more money than Aloe Blacc. Case in point this top 10 feels like the strongest it has been all year, and it's topped off by two heavyweight boxers who have been throwing punches at each other for close to two months now. "Stars" by Famous has seen off every challenge so far and it still feels like it's getting stronger. It's now with 7 weeks at #1 which is the equal most this year, and one more than "Sekwar" by Liars which remains at #2. Shygirl and slowthai make a move to #3 with "BDE", which despite its status as an absolute banger, may find it tough to break any higher at this stage. Lord Huron slip down a spot to #4 and "The Beatles" keeps true at #5, but both tracks may drop out of the top 5 next week with the competition directly below them ready to blast the door open.

And one of the competitors is a certain Mr. Cave & co, which I'm always glad to have in my music rotation. As the story goes, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds recorded "Vortex" back in 2006 but the members couldn't decide if it should be a Bad Seeds or Grinderman track, with the aforementioned side project having just been set up at that time. I feel the song falls comfortably in the former, with the only issue being that their next record chronologically "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" in 2008 would not have suited the track. Hence why they've sat on this for so long, but wow I am so thrilled it has finally seen the light of day. With a substantial b-sides album on its way, the track comes in at #8 for their 9th entry to date.

While I'm not surprised they're back so soon, I am impressed that Bugs have easily outpeaked their previous entry. Now up to 2 entries in total, "Decisions, Commitments & Plans" comes in at #20.

Up next is a track that has been bubbling under for a couple of weeks or so. Although his contribution is quite late in the track, 21 Savage is credited first and it excitingly brings him up to 20 entries. Rich Brian is having a pretty decent year, with this being his 3rd entry for 2021 and 8th overall. Meanwhile, both Warren Hue and MaSiWei are new to the chart, although the latter is part of Higher Brothers who had an entry in 2019. "Lazy Susan" slaps and it's #41.

When I saw that Denzel Curry was contributing a song to the upcoming Madden soundtrack, I was a little concerned that (much like "KICKOFF" by Big K.R.I.T. which is still a tune) it would be clean and a little too sport-focused (the latter not being a complaint you usually hear from me). But "The Game" is Denzel absolutely doing his own thing and it's solid. In at #48, it's the Floridian's 19th entry to date.

I was sure to check out the new Parquet Courts track just before throwing on their interview with Fantano, and after that double whammy I'm excited for their new album later this year. "Walking at a Downtown Pace" doesn't veer from their usual lane which maybe is to its detriment slightly, but it's a great return for them. It's their 13th entry in at #54.

Kiwi outfit Unknown Mortal Orchestra have had a casual presence on the chart since the halfway point of last decade. Here they are back with "That Life" entering at #65, a track I wasn't keen on at first but eventually grew on me. It makes for their 6th entry.

Also ending the day with 6 entries is Disclosure who have put together a fairly straightforward dance banger here. "In My Arms" is #81.

Songs retire at 75 weeks

In a week where one of the all-time greatest songs in this chart's history retired (RRL <3), there was certainly some chance that there would be a changing of the guard at the top of the chart too. In a way there somewhat was, as some big names slipped to their lowest ever positions after months of being in the top 4; however the main news is that "Stars" by Famous is #1 for the 8th week. Launching himself up to #2 is Isaiah Rashad with "From the Garden", and right behind him moving into #3 is "Vortex" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. That relative disruption causes "BDE" to slip to #4 and "Sekwar" to an all-time low position of #5.

This is a brilliantly delivered piece of Aussie hip hop with Kobie Dee coming in for his 2nd entry. "About A Girl" is not a hot Nirvana cover but it is #23.

Up next is a UK house remix of a Nelly Furtado single that I've never been hugely fond of. Rain Radio and DJ Craig Gorman combine for "Talk About" for their 1st entries respectively in at #33.

Tropical Fuck Storm double up in the chart with "G.A.F.F." also from their new album. In at #36 for their 3rd entry.

I was pleased to see this sneak in on Billboard because the production from Hit-Boy in particular is impressive. Nas comes in at #43 for his 3rd entry entitled "Rare".

Although it's randomly for a video game soundtrack, the vibe of this new Angus & Julia Stone track does sound like a natural progression from their last era. In at #46 "Love Song" is their 5th entry.

New to the chart but not new to my musical knowledge is Ngaiire. She enters with the lovely "Him" at #75.

The Presets may have 13 entries as a group (and could have had almost double that amount had I started my charts just a year or so earlier), but this is the first solo entry for Julian Hamilton. "City of Love" is #86.

And closing things out is one Detroit rapper that I didn't know of before and another that I definitely did. In at #94, Babyface Ray (1st entry) collaborates with Big Sean (11th) on "It Ain't My Fault", with producer Hit-Boy (1st) co-credited in this instance which makes it a pretty solid week overall for him.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 13/9/21
Edition No.618
Songs retire at 75 weeks

A certain football team just did the unthinkable in making the grand final for the second time in five years from outside the top four, which will make my petty whinging in the commentary some weeks ago seem rather impetuous in context. Even though I'm prepared to lose, I can't wait 🔴⚪🔵 Speaking of doing the unthinkable, "Stars" by Famous has joined an elite group of songs with nine or more weeks at #1, but it still has four weeks to go before it can get near Two People who of course have the record outright. Isaiah Rashad is knocking on the door at #2 again with "From the Garden" which in the context of the album bangs even more. Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain solid at #3 with "Vortex" which is unlucky not to be higher. Liars move up to the one position in the top 5 they've previously not held, with "Sekwar" at #4. And at #5, kind of out of nowhere, The Armed jump up 62 places with "AN ITERATION". In part it's because I've listened to and bought the album and it flows so brilliantly in the track list, but in truth it's just clicked with me in a way that it wasn't before.

I've not given this Billie Eilish song specifically more attention but it must have been the listen during the week that caused this. "OverHeated" might just be another deep cut for most, but for me the interlude that precedes it really reinforces the melody and the spacey production. It might just be one of my favourite Billie songs to date, becoming her 15th entry in at #17.

When it was announced that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails would be co-producing the new Halsey album, I was certainly impressed with their approach to potentially get away from the more commercially trendy forms of pop. Without sounding too dismissive of their back catalogue (which I must admit I'm not that familiar with), this is comfortably one of the best Halsey songs to date. "I am not a woman, I'm a god" is in fact a 5th entry and it's #27.

In a short space of time, Doja Cat has built quite a collection of hits with many not getting too far away from this chart. "Get Into It (Yuh)" however is the first to break through in at #29.

The Isaiah Rashad album has quite a number of potential charting songs there that I'm sure I'll get more acquainted with. "Chad" on first listen already stood out as a track that I want to hear more and as such it comes in at #35 for Isaiah's 3rd and YGTUT's 1st entries. Soon after that first impression I saw that this got a Lyrical Lemonade video to accompany it, proving that after all these years I can still pick the singles from a track list just like I often used to.

I cryptically tweeted that there was going to be a long song debuting that I previously tried but didn't get into. In part I was wanting to give more of a chance to the SPELLLING album which I am aware many people love, but then when I did so the melody of this track really sunk for me even more. "Boys at School" is so grand and lush in its presentation which is indicative of the album as a whole, which may or may not have more tracks to come soon. A 2nd entry in at #53.

I've been wanting to get Boo Seeka a 2nd entry to follow up 2015's "Deception Bay" and time after time the band (or apparently, solo project now) kept coming up short. "Tripwire" appears to be another single from the upcoming album and it's #61.

Husky are a band that have had bit more repetitive success on the chart than Boo Seeka, but sadly for just their 6th entry today which still feels like not enough. Nevertheless, "Meteorite" is more solid songwriting from the Victorians and it's #67.

I think La Luz have released nearly half of their upcoming album already but I'm not complaining. Clearly shaping up to be one of my most anticipated records of the year, "The Pines" is another cut from it in at #72 for their 14th entry.

Somewhat more surprising than Doja Cat getting her 1st entry today is Ta-ku finally breaking the duck. Maybe in part because I confuse him with Tuka of Thundamentals, but also his collab "Mahal" with Chet Faker still absolutely bangs, "Wide Open" is a great piece of production from him. More importantly though it's a 3rd entry for Wafia because it's her song, and also featuring is first timer Masego. It enters at #76.

New country for the stats alert!! It has taken a while for South Africa to get some representation on the chart, not least because Die Antwoord and Seether have obviously been robbed on countless occasions. MOONGA K. collaborates here with Sampa the Great on "REBEL TIME", a solid rap tune with booming percussion in at #82.

Future Islands are back just doing Future Islands things. "Peach" may not stand out if you've heard many songs of theirs in the past like I have, but I'm always glad to have them around. Their 9th entry, it debuts at #90.

We're clocking up the frequent flyer miles this week and being very COVID unsafe in the process, with France's Feu! Chatterton returning for a 2nd entry. "Cantique" certainly channels some Radiohead among other things which is probably why it's #95.

I think it's hugely impressive that The Killers get inducted into the 10 entries club with this new debut, because my favourite two Killers albums well and truly preceded this chart's existence. Their new album doesn't click with me as much as I wanted it to and I just find it to really be a one trick pony which is a shame, but there are some tracks of note that I enjoy. "Sleepwalker" is the pick of the bunch at #96.
