IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 3/1/22
Edition No.634
Songs retire at 75 weeks

If you're online this Wednesday and/or Thursday night, a note that my big 2021 shindig is on

Also random to place this here but I've decided I'm no longer satisfied with my crediting format in the song column of the chart. To keep it in line with my EOY tables, moving forward I'm now going to have only the song title in the song column, and then any features will be added inside the artist column. And no more "ft.", which may be iconic with my chart over the years, but it still doesn't look right to me With my chart database it makes no difference to my stats and this change just looks cleaner imo.

New year, same chaos. The Horrors are #1 again for a 4th week with "Against The Blade". Raj Mahal makes the seemingly inevitable rise up to #2 with "REDICLUS", but will he be able to make the much bigger step next week? It blew right past Jean Dawson slipping down to #3, ahead of The Antlers debuting at #4 and IDLES keeping strong at #5.

The Antlers put out a terrific album last year and the title track "Green to Gold" is a lovely moment even if it is a longer track. Their 6th entry is #4.

One artist that was a bit more ubiquitous overall in 2021 was Billie Eilish. Her 17th entry "Billie Bossa Nova" is #24.

It took me several listens of the new Augie March single to mishear Glenn nearly singing about one of the great modern metropolises, but instead he said Taormina which is apparently in Sicily. "Clay" is a delicate piece of indie folk and it's quite a delight. Their 2nd entry is #33.

In light of me doing my EOY earlier this time around (shameless plug again for Wednesday), I chose to cut off my album listening at a certain popular soul / R&B collaboration album unless anything major came up before the end of the year. Of course Nas had the audacity to drop another album with Hit-Boy on Christmas Eve, which although may not have the depth of "King's Disease II", does have this particular number. "Meet Joe Black" is quite catchy and it debuts at #38 for his 6th entry.

And from that aforementioned popular soul / R&B collaboration album, Silk Sonic are in again at #52 with "Blast Off" and at #73 (so close!!) with "777", which makes for Bruno's 10th and Anderson's 13th entries respectively, wow.

This Tiny Little Houses deep cut got stuck in my head the other day interchanging with the other song of theirs that debuted last week. "Take a Swing" is #62 for a 13th entry.

I am aware of The Diplomats and especially when Denzel Curry shouted them out on "RICKY", but I was not aware that Jim Jones is a part of it until after I was sold on this track. Okay, it's a collaboration with Migos that I'm sure many people will just roll their eyes and say it's phoned in etc. etc., but I can never resist when their rap flow is as fun as it is here. "We Set The Trends" at #67 is Jim Jones' 1st entry and it takes Migos up to 19.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 10/1/22
Edition No.635
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This week is nearly all about the fallout from my EOY, and in particular the fairly new chart hits from it. The Antlers take top spot with "Green to Gold" really growing on me so much in the past month. Raj Mahal is blocked from top spot as "REDICLUS" holds steady at #2. This sees The Horrors slip down two places to #3 while Jean Dawson has to settle for #4, with alt-J debuting at #5.

A pretty lean week for debuts with just five on the docket, but they're mostly from big name favourites of mine. alt-J's 4th album is set to be released in a month's time and they get themselves a third big debut out of three singles so far. While I'm hopeful that "Hard Drive Gold" could catch on with people outside the fanbase, it didn't need to convince me for too long. They have 19 entries, with surely more to come soon, and this is #5.

It's entirely possible that this is the first 2022 song released in the whole world when you account for time zones. This is because The Presets premiered this song on the Australian New Year fireworks coverage and it appeared on music platforms within the hour following that. And while I thought it felt a little bit mid at first, it's certainly growing on me. "You Belong" is their 14th entry in at #43.

Speaking of big names on my chart, it doesn't get much bigger than Josh Tillman a.k.a. Father John Misty. With a new album on the way, "Funny Girl" is our first taste from it and it debuts at #56 for his 24th entry.

The 31 December new releases were extremely thin, which was great news for me while I was trying to put my EOY together. ZHU released a deluxe version of his album including a number of new songs, one of which is "Mannequins & Egos" incorporating uncredited vocals from Jay-R Marv. It debuts at #64 for ZHU's 4th entry.

Parquet Courts close out the week with 14 entries to date, with the title track to "Sympathy for Life" slotting in at #91.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 17/1/22
Edition No.636
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Two weeks at the top for The Antlers. Raj Mahal again stalls at #1, which is just absurd. Pushing up to #3 is "Hard Drive Gold" with alt-J challenging for three consecutive #1 hits, with The Horrors slipping down to #4 as a result. IDLES sneak back in at #5.

For DJ Shadow to do a version of "Black Hot Soup" that so comfortably exceeded my expectations, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are an enigma. However I would say it's important to add that this is basically a DJ Shadow song rather than coming across as an actual remix (or re-write), as it sounds nothing like the original on KG's last album. Anyway, it's a bit of a mess to credit especially when I've just tidied that process up on here (THANKS FOR THAT) but it debuts at #9, for KG's 39th and DJ Shadow's 3rd entries respectively. WOO.

Leikeli47's "Girl Blunt" is still an absolute bop and this hits similar territory. Undoubtedly named after one of my least favourite rappers of last decade, "Chitty Bang" is her highest peaking track already coming in at #25 for her 3rd entry to date.

They had a sushi counter. And a counter that did pastry and mixed salads. In Hendon. Or so says Album Lady's favourite band of 2021, Dry Cleaning, on their track "A.L.C". It was a song that broke through while I was revisiting all of the 2021 songs for my EOY preparations, so it's only fair that I give it the debut it deserves. It's #34 for their 3rd entry.

And the 2022 music is coming quickly with yet another one of my recent faves making a big return! Fontaines D.C. are going to reach three albums in what feels like no time at all, with "Jackie Down the Line" their 12th entry at #44.

January 2017 was about a million years ago but it was when Sage the Gemini came through with a considerable hit in Australia. After listening to it just now it's barely recognisable even though I didn't mind it at the time. Fast forward five years later and he makes the chart with the very catchy but misleading "Numero Uno". It's his 1st entry at #50.

Jaguar Jonze keeps up her run of singles at least sometimes making this chart. "CUT" is her 7th entry at #62.

There's nothing wrong with a reminder that I love Radiohead, so whenever Thom Yorke does some sort of side-project, I'm usually at least within reach. This is a trio also involving Jonny Greenwood from the band, and recruiting Tom Skinner from Sons of Kemet. The band is called The Smile and the song is titled "You Will Never Work In Television Again", for their 1st entry to date at #76.

And no longer involving Ta-ku henceforth becoming a solo project, HWLS are surely the lesser known version of What So Not. I say that because this is Justin Elwin's 2nd entry having previously worked with Flume on the outrageous banger "High Beams". Anyway there's a HWLS album on the way and "Dithering" is pretty neat. In for a 2nd entry at #80.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 24/1/22
Edition No.637
Songs retire at 75 weeks

It's three weeks at #1 for The Antlers, but otherwise it's pretty shaky ground for a lot of the contenders. IDLES zoom up to #2 after dropping out of the top 5 just two weeks ago, with Raj Mahal slipping to #3. King Gizzard bullet to #4 with the DJ Shadow version of "Black Hot Soup", while alt-J collapse to #5.

A week before the annual triple j impact, we have just six debuts and it's kicked off by Father. Nope, it's not Tillman, but rather the Atlanta-based rapper who I've known about for a while but enters for the first time here. "Pay N Spray" is a Grand Theft Auto reference which I think is pretty neat. Fortunately it's a brilliantly performed hip hop tune and one of the best songs of the new year so far. It's #7.

It's slightly ambiguous but Buñuel count as Italian, adding to my chart stats to provide much-needed company for the likes of The Bloody Beetroots, Benny Benassi, Giorgio Moroder and MEDUZA and absolutely no one else. Other than this being another electronic artist, this trio have quite a wild brand of rock not unlike The Mars Volta or black midi. "Crack Shot" is the second teaser for an album which is dropping next month and it enters at #37 for their 1st entry.

MICHELLE are in fact a collective and not one person which I was surprised to learn. "EXPIRATION DATE" is pretty neat and for their 1st entry it enters at #54.

You could say that I'm still torn on The Weeknd's new album even if I haven't given up on some of the other cuts. "How Do I Make You Love Me?" has of course already left the ARIA top 50 but it's still worthy to come in here, bringing him up to 14 entries by coming in at #60.

Also from Canada is Dom Vallie who has Belizean heritage, but unfortunately under those circumstances does not add to my chart stats. I discovered after it was too late that "Been Himma" actually came out last month but whatever. His debut entry is #67.

This had quite a wide range of where it could debut, but unfortunately for JID (8th entry), 21 Savage (21st) and Yung Baby Tate (2nd) it comes in as the lowest new entry of the week. "Surround Sound" is #70.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 31/1/22
Edition No.638
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Without too much fuss, The Antlers have spent most of the month in the #1 spot, just ahead of Father who lays his claim with a bullet up to #2. From there it's anyone's game to snatch the remaining positions in the top 5, with IDLES slipping down just one spot and King Gizzard & DJ Shadow retaining #4. Raj Mahal isn't done with yet but "REDICLUS" could be on the decline further than #5.

Okey dokey, it's silly season. And some will say that has a double meaning, because they'd rather a two-minute offcut in the guise of a commercial pop song beat a timeless Australian band covering a timeless Australian song. Anywho, it's The Wiggles who commence the annual H100 shenanigans on this chart, they are #17 with their amazing rendition of "Elephant", and it is unsurprisingly their 1st entry.

Those fellow WT followers will recall that one of the big surprises came from Adam Newling. At first I wasn't sure what to think of "Sweetness" because many of you may know that harmonica isn't my favourite instrument, but I'll be damned if this song isn't what it says on the can. He has his 1st entry in at #20.

Neither a new release or H100 song, "ALL FUTURES" was one I admittedly underrated from The Armed's album. They have 4 entries with one at #26.

I will need to get through this commentary quickly this week. The Jungle Giants are #38 with title track "Love Signs".

Honestly the only Lorde song last year I have time for is "Stoned at the Nail Salon" which funnily enough is the silliest song title of the lot. She has 8 entries with this one in at #40.

Both new to the chart are Das Sound Kollektiv and IHAKA. Hoping to avoid the cyber abuse I have decided to debut "Fuel for the Fire" at #44.

I have been known to liken certain artists to aus-charts members and in some cases I have been charted these artists... in other news AZ is new to the chart at #52 with "Motorola Era". Also it inducts 2 Chainz to the 10 entries club which is extremely cool.

Fatlip is not a rapper I knew anything about previously but it seems he is collaborating on an album thing with Blu, with this track produced by the one and only Madlib. "Gangsta Rap" is #56 is Fatlip's 1st, Blu's 5th and Madlib's 17th entries to date.

Flying the flag for the NT, King Stingray have 2 entries with "Milkumana" at #58.

Flying the flag for Grizzly Bear, Daniel Rossen is also up to 2 entries with "Shadow in the Frame" at #64.

The Jungle Giants close out their day with 15 entries to date, as "Treat You Right" enters at #65.

New stuff from Methyl Ethel who are inducted into the 10 entries club with "Proof" at #67, it's also a 7th entry for Stella Donnelly who features on the track.

Two hip new artists that were yet to feature on this chart before this. "Little Things" from Ziggy Ramo and Paul Kelly is #79.

Jumping to 3 entries are Wet Leg who I hope had a lie down on the "Chaise Longue" after their jjj interview. The song is #81.

Yep Idris Elba is in the chart, and yep that means so are Lime Cordiale. The Aussie duo are up to 4 entries with "What's Not to Like" easily the better of their two Hottest 100 offerings, in at #82.

Admittedly I did not hear this until hundo day but I loved it straight away of course. Tame Impala are up to 25 entries with the "A Girl Like You" LAV at #85.

Aluna has charted before as part of AlunaGeorge (3 entries) but never as a soloist, teaming up with Diplo (6th entry) and Durante (1st) on "Forget About Me" at #87.

I regret not charting "Rumors" last year but here it is now at #88, Lizzo has 3 entries and Cardi B has 6.

Ocean Alley have 5 entries with their big Pink Floyd thing at #95.

Spacey Jane aren't far behind on 4 entries with "Lots of Nothing" at #96.

Sam Fender has a 1st entry with his big The War On Drugs thing at #98.

Peking Duk have 4 entries with their big M83 thing at #99.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 7/2/22
Edition No.639
Songs retire at 75 weeks

There seems to be little stopping The Antlers at the moment as they celebrate a 5th week at the summit. Father is chasing close behind but perhaps it has done its dash stuck at #2? Raj Mahal is back on the up once again swapping with IDLES for the #3 spot, while King Gizzard & DJ Shadow get straight 4s by again holding their spot.

I try to block out ads and recommended videos on YouTube when finding new music given it feels so inorganic in my own head. However the rarely used approach did result in "Waitress" becoming a thing, so it's not always a total waste of time you might say. Anyway this came up as an ad perhaps while either watching Office Hours or Geography Now and it was one of those full music video ads. The expected response from me would be to usually hit skip as soon as it allows you to, but the opening seconds I was subjected to was enough to pique my interest. I think the reason why is that the production on this track would not feel out of place if it was a Metro Boomin production with either NAV, SZA or someone similar rapping and/or crooning over it. And instead it's a little known R&B singer from New York City who doesn't have a single song with one million Spotify streams or more. So in short, this track is quite obscure but totally not in the obscure sphere of music that I usually draw from, and Kyla Imani ends up here both on merit and in quite a fortuitous manner. "Big Plans" most certainly does the job, it's her 1st entry, and it's #11.

So you could say that we're back to regularly scheduled programming now for this next entry. Denzel Curry has been fairly regular on the chart for quite a few years and this is his 20th entry. And to celebrate, "Walkin" is #20.

This is so intriguing that I still feel like I'm digesting it. Nilüfer Yanya always keeps us on our toes and 6th entry "midnight sun" does just that, perhaps with some Radiohead vibes sprinkled in just for fun. It enters at #22.

2022 so far is looking good for previous Hottest 100 #1 artists, with Augie March retweeting my positive response to their album, and in this case The Whitlams dropping their first album in 16 years. "Sancho" didn't quite live up to the quality of "Nobody Knows I Love You" but that's okay. It's a lovely tune and their 1st entry is #30.

This feels quite esoteric and geeky and therefore perhaps in my wheelhouse. But regardless, yeah this is a bop. Ed Schrader's Music Beat are a Baltimore duo and this is the first taste of a new album coming out next month. "This Thirst" is their 1st entry at #36.

I promise there will not be an essay this time. What to say about the other new Franz Ferdinand song? Well, "Curious" is better than "Billy Goodbye", and I think it's because it seems to lean more effectively on their post punk heyday. It's safely better than most of the deep cuts from "Always Ascending" too, and honestly has me quite intrigued for what may (or may not) come after this GH drops. And who knows, if this is it, what an unexpectedly cool way to sign off. They have 33 entries and it's #47.

Okay onto hundo things now. The Terrys are from Gerringong which is a town I went to once. "Our Paradise" is their 1st entry at #61.

Mild Orange are quickly back in the chart to follow up their entry from late last year. "Oh Yeah" is #70.

It's the annual tradition of charting the FISHER song that made the H100. "Just Feels Tight" is #72 for his 4th entry.

I can't recall if I heard this before H100 day but it's very nice. Telenova are new to the chart in at #85 with "Bones".

PUP aren't far off from a new album and "Robot Writes A Love Song" is another cleverly executed track. Their 6th track is #93.

Amazingly, Holy Holy are nearly in the 10 entries club with this being their 9th. They teamed up with CLEWS (4th entry) for "The Aftergone", which I didn't mind before H100 day but as it often goes, I've spent enough time with it now to squeeze it in. It does so at #96.

I also didn't expect Hayden James' H100 entry to grow on me as well, especially as there have been four previous efforts that have missed the cut. Hence "Waiting for Nothing" follows up his only other entry on this chart "Something About You" from seven years ago (fuck). It's #97 and a 1st entry for Yaeger.

I still think this is just a Gang of Youths song but oh well, it's good Tyne-James Organ is new to the chart at #99 with "Sunday Suit".

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 14/2/22
Edition No.640
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I was almost sure that The Antlers' luck had run out, but they manage to keep steady for a 6th week at #1 for "Green to Gold". Perhaps it should have been Father's big week but "Pay N Spray" stalls at #2, and with some competition coming up from behind, could that spell further trouble? Impressively though, Raj Mahal isn't going away without a fight, still at #3 with "REDICLUS". There are two new songs to the top 5, both of which were complete unknowns to me not long ago, but in their own respective contexts have made a huge impact. Adam Newling's "Sweetness" was the find of H100 season for me, rocketing up to #4 with all the signs for a song that may just go higher again next week. And then at #5 coming off the big debut from last week, Kyla Imani moves up with "Big Plans".

As much as I could try to contextualise the week or so that I've had into why there is so much chaos on the chart this week, it's just a randomly strong week for new music and there's not much rhyme or reason to it. It's kicked off by Arlo Parks, still relatively fresh off her EOY success with "Hope", and now a 2nd entry to join it. "Softly" was a song that I kept coming back to this week and it debuts strongly at #8.

I've always had a lot of general respect for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever despite never quite having any wow factor. "The Way It Shatters" is a funny song title really, because they've absolutely taken things to the next level. For some reason it partly reminds me of Pinkshinyultrablast and possibly something else(??) but the synthy bit is a winner. Who knows where it will go from here, but at least for now their 4th entry is #10.

Maybe I just love being tweeted at by famous people, as extremely rare those occurrences are. However, I had decided Augie March's album was quality even before that and there were two cuts that emerged from the consistent track list for me. The first of which is the frantic "The Derangement", where I've never heard them have this much menace and bite, and it's enthralling. It's #14.

And they're not done yet... and okay I'm really not sure what to make of the album title and this title track in particular. Ultimately none of it matters because that synth drags you in and it's just so catchy and relaxing. Augie March end the day with 4 entries to date with "Bloodsport and Porn" at #17.

A tribute to the late Young Dolph who passed away late last year, with Key Glock making his first Billboard Hot 100 appearance with this track. He is also new here, with "Proud" coming in at #27.

New. Country. For. The. Stats. Trupa Trupa are from Poland which I would never have guessed, and this track funnily enough reminds me of Wunder Wunder but also Temples. The surprisingly short (given how memorable it is) "Uniforms" enters at #28 for their first entry.

Four years ago, Saba came through with one of the best hip hop albums of that year, so yes I was interested to hear his new album. And while it doesn't quite get there overall for me, "If I Had A Dollar" is good stuff. His 8th entry and a 1st for Benjamin Earl Turner, it's #33.

I'm still not sure if I was being fair by being underwhelmed by Death By Denim's last few singles or if I was just expecting more songs at the quality of "Wiggy". But nonetheless, it's problem solved because here they manage to re-scratch that itch somewhat. "Make It Up As We Go" is full of lush and fuzzy riffs coming in at #35 for their 4th entry.

So this is a mix between "I'm Closing In" by Obits and "Couple's Fight" by Custard while simultaneously whetting my everpresent appetite for Aussie bands that do this sort of thing. The Grogans have a 2nd entry at #36 with "Be Your Man".

I'm really not sure why I needed to wait longer for this to grow on me because it's very catchy and well-produced. "5FT FREESTYLE" by Tasman Keith is very cool even though if it's unclear whether or not he is indeed shorter than me. In at #46 for his 2nd entry.

So yeah, alt-J only went and released the second biggest album of the day on Friday. "The Actor" came a few days earlier hence I've had a bit more time with it. They are up to 20 entries and it's #50.

King Von appeared on "Body Count" by Mozzy before tragically passing away in late 2020, although I was late to the party in charting it myself. Posthumous releases are still very much order of the day and sometimes they're not in terrible taste. "Don't Play That" might not be incredibly unique on the surface but it's playing with some really fun production. In at #55, it's his 2nd entry and a 22nd for 21 Savage who contributes quite a cool verse.

I am pretty hyped for the return of Warpaint and here they are. 11 entries up, "Champion" is #58.

You'd be mistaken for thinking at this stage that an Irish post-punk band releasing a song called "Database" is pretty much a given for making the chart. And well, yeah. Naked Lungs are new and this is quite a ferocious banger, in at #62.

Skegss never seem to leave much time in between releases as I feel there's almost always new stuff from them. "Stranger" continues their prolific run on this chart too, in at #68 for their 8th entry.

Even though it was clearly because of the feature, it was so awesome to see Benny the Butcher also debut on Billboard. "Johnny P's Caddy" doesn't compromise his style too, with some really good verses from him and J. Cole. In at #75 it's their 6th and 9th entries respectively.

A nice positivity anthem from an artist that makes his debut on the chart despite being a relatively big name. Rex Orange County is #84 with "KEEP IT UP".

A three year absence from the chart is over for an artist that I do like more than their chart history would suggest. 2nd entry for Camp Cope as "Running with the Hurricane" comes in at #89.

So the H100 stuff ends today with two final tracks to throw in. Genesis Owusu achieves an interesting feat of charting in three separate years from the same album. "Gold Chains" is #95 for his 6th entry.

I suppose this counts as 2022 H100 stuff but yeah the new Flume song is solid. "Say Nothing" at #96 is his 28th entry with MAY-A being new to the chart.

And officially closing it out, The Amity Affliction just doing what they do well. "Like Love" is their 6th charter to date in at #99.

Out of interest, what was the other Camp Cope song to make your chart?
I've followed them for quite a while but previously only "The Face Of God" has made it in back in early 2019 at a peak of #26, it also made #143 in my 2018 EOY as a result of getting into it late
IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 21/2/22
Edition No.641
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Sometimes I do think I'm crazy for downloading every song that makes the H100 in spite of the annual occurrences of songs that I've already made my mind up on, which in many cases results in me giving some token scrobbles to various average meh songs all the way through to the occasional absolute dross. But perhaps once or twice a year something catches my ear (or preferably both ears), and if it's really lucky, it might even grow into a full blown major hit. Ruby Fields is one of those artists who had the one-week chart entry due to H100 ("Dinosaurs" three years ago) so without being harsh I guess I'm not a massive fan even though I do like her sound. However, it turns out that Adam Newling who tours with her came out with one of the delights of this H100 season. "Sweetness" has grown on me heaps. It was the big WT surprise that none of us aus-charters probably saw coming, only for it to end up just scraping through. And luckily it did, because it ascends to the top of the chart in its 4th week, and just the 2nd post-H100 song to do so ("D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)" being the other, although technically that was a case of me being late to that album and it just so happened to make that preceding countdown). And that sees The Antlers finally drop to #2 but they might be falling down further, as Augie March rockets up to #3 with "The Derangement", and Kyla Imani sees further growth up to #4 with "Big Plans". Raj Mahal hangs on at #5 with "REDICLUS" at the expense of Father.

While I am firmly in stan mode with the latest alt-J album, I was perhaps a bit more measured rather than listening to it 100 times in a row. I can see this track not exactly being everyone's favourite, even I was somewhat taken aback by it at first. But yeah, "Philadelphia" is creative and bizarre but yet it all works so well. Their 21st entry is #19.

Over the years I have continued to tick off many of the big names across Australian music, some of which with just a token very low entry because lol. So it only makes sense that I get to give a debut entry to a band that has previously just continued to pass me by, rightly or wrongly. "Plenty" more than makes up for Northlane's absence up until this point as it really does hit the spot for what they do well. It's in at #38.

Now for a band that had my 6th favourite album of 2016, but due to release date chaos failed to actually make the EOY songs list. And since then, sadly I had been pretty underwhelmed by Sunflower Bean to such an extent that I had doubts if they'd ever return to my chart. "Who Put You Up To This?" is certainly the sound of a band that has evolved over time, as it doesn't scratch the same itch of bangers like "Wall Watcher" or "I Was Home", but it's still impressive in its own way. They are up to 8 entries with this one at #47.
Here is a random NMF thing that is incredibly ambitious in what it's trying to do, with the result being something quite fun. BEAM actually appeared on Justin Bieber's album last year and Beibz actually returned the favour for the album from which this song is taken. "PLANET BEAM" is his 1st entry in at #52.

It may be a new year, but here I am still charting random Billboard hip hop songs that many people unsurprisingly don't like. Gucci Mane has 5 entries and it's a first for Lil Durk, as "Rumors" comes in at #59, sadly just a week after Lizzo left with the song of the same name.

Me happily looking at my entries tab of my chart database: la la la, Hatchie is up to her 2nd entry with "Quicksand" which debuts at #64
Chart database angrily reminding me that Hatchie in fact featured on the LAV of "I Try" by Hockey Dad: HEY. SHE HAS THREE ENTRIES
Me, shocked: oh?!
I have fun here.

When I chart two album tracks from an album that otherwise didn't massively stand out to me, it's natural for me to second guess whether I need to dive back into it... meh, I was probably right. Saba has 9 entries, Black Thought is up to 4 and it's a 1st for Eryn Allen Kane, as "Few Good Things" enters at #67.

Already I think this is the better song from The Smile, which is further proved by the fact that it has already outpeaked the first one. "The Smoke" is #71.

I was not sure if I had charted vaporwave ever before (or even downloaded it), but I'm a bit more sure now. death's dynamic shroud have a debut entry at #73 with "Judgment Bolt".

Copy and paste what I said for Saba with The Whitlams' album to an extent, but oh well. "Catherine Wheel" is #80 for their 2nd entry.

Erin Rae is on the same label as Nicole Atkins and Mia Dyson, which is interesting but it also makes sense. "California Belongs to You" is her 1st entry in at #86.

Yot Club is a solo project dressed up as a band dressed up as an events venue on the Gold Coast. Or alternatively I'm not good at researching things. The Gorillaz-sounding "It's Easy" is a debut entry in at #91.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 28/2/22
Edition No.642
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Last week had some considerable movement at the top and it's happened again, arguably with even more drama. Augie March take top spot with "The Derangement" after being locked in quite a contest all week with Methyl Ethel, who ultimately settle for a debut at #2. Adam Newling slips down to #3, while Kyla Imani keeps strong at #4 with "Big Plans". She is in fact the only non-Aussie in the top 5 because Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever shatter into the #5 position with "The Way It Shatters".

Okay this is big. I have always been a fan of Methyl Ethel without them really having a huge hit to show for it. As far as their best previously, I probably waver between "No. 28" being an EOY entry and "Twilight Driving" giving me those H100 memories, but now all that has theoretically been blown open. Their new album is quite cool, but "One and Beat" stands out and it knows it. Starting off with a dramatic "Pyramid Song" vibe, it then breaks into loud static only to then divert into something so zany not unlike the album version of Franz Ferdinand's "Lucid Dreams". Big this certainly is, and their 11th entry was so so so close to breaking that elusive #1 debut drought. Augie March might have won this week, but they are far from comfortable as Methyl Ethel debut at #2.

I will eventually be able to better explain why I'm loving "Big Plans" right now, but now we have another brilliantly performed R&B tune, albeit a more upbeat one. Queen Naija is new to the chart and it's Big Sean's 12th entry who is co-credited on "Hate Our Love", which enters at #11.

Despite the barrage of entries this week only the above two could really make a big impact straight away on the chart. We scroll down a bit to see the next one which is an Augie March album track. They have two on the docket this week, with the repetitive but lovely "Cossack Tide" entering at #47 and the perhaps political "Uncanny Island" at #75, leaving them with 6 entries to date.

There's a new Kurt Vile LP coming soon, and last time he charted with a couple of very long songs, so here the trend continues with (the slightly shorter) "Like Exploding Stones". Always exploring different directions with his music, this one is his 6th entry in at #52.

And now we have this downright banger from Future Islands, outside of the dancey synth it's still very familiar territory for them though. Nothing wrong with that I say, as "King of Sweden" enters at #55 for a 10th (yay!) entry.

Speaking of surprising bangers, Foals rarely sound this electronic but they do well to keep a consistent groove here. "2am" is their 13th entry at #59.

I probably need to make a list of the big albums that I'm anticipating as I usually do so on my albums spreadsheet, but it won't surprise anyone to learn that the Father John Misty hype is growing steadily. "Q4" is his 25th entry at #61.

Speaking of big albums, alt f**king j. I'm seeing them in September, the album is out and it's great. Maybe part of me was expecting more... but I'm giving this plenty of time. As it is they literally have 7 songs on the chart right now, with "Powers" debuting at #64 and "Bane" in at #88, and in the process they have 23 entries to date.

Cat & Calmell didn't need much time to convince me on this track. "Cry" is a neat 2nd entry in at #66.

Meanwhile there's plenty of hype being shown for Fontaines D.C. as well. "I Love You" is a gritty cut not unlike "The Lotts" or "You Said". They are up to 13 entries with this one at #70.

I was worried that maybe Psychedelic Porn Crumpets may struggle to chart after it seemed they were stagnating, but they're back here with a new album on the way. "Bubblegum Infinity" is a 7th entry, in which they do the fuzzy guitar thing, and it's #71.

A first timer this week with a song that reminds me of too many things to list. Carla Geneve is #83 with "Brighter Than Blue".

It was crazy that I randomly checked if Fight Ibis had done anything lately, only to discover they had just dropped a brand new song days earlier. "American Android" is not a Radiohead nod as far as I can tell; but surprisingly takes things in quite a '90s Britpop direction, as I'm hearing both Suede and Blur on this. They are up to 3 entries with this one at #89.

I wonder if this takes the record for the longest chronological gap in chart/EOY entries, with Screamfeeder having achieved two EOY entries in my 1996 list and now having a brand new song chart. That means "Don't Get Me Started" is their 1st to chart here at least, and it's #92.

New. country. alert... and this one was surprising! Newbies HYBS are a duo from Thailand apparently which I did not see coming. "Go Higher" is #93.

And Jack White finishes proceedings off at #100 with "Fear Of The Dawn", his 15th solo entry to date.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 7/3/22
Edition No.643
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Some easy decisions were made this week, with Augie March pretty comfortably securing that all important second week at #1. Methyl Ethel hold firm at #2 ahead of tough competition from Kyla Imani moving up to #3. Denzel Curry also makes his case as "Walkin" sprints up to #4. And, just like a bad smell, IDLES refuse to go away as "The Wheel" rebounds back to #5.

There is quite some hype for the Denzel Curry album when that hopefully drops soon. "Zatoichi" is his 21st entry and slowthai's 10th in at #22.

I only just realised the Methyl Ethel song debuting this week is even longer than "One and Beat", and after a quick Google search this song title means "disciplines, laughing manners" in Latin. "Castigat Ridendo Mores" is #27 for their 12th entry.

This is a pretty cool collaboration and it works quite seamlessly. Winston Surfshirt (5th entry) and Genesis Owusu (7th) are #58 with "There's Only One".

Not every RY X song I've heard has ended up charting, but the two before today both ended up being EOY successes as well. So, there's clearly no pressure on "Let You Go", which for now at least makes for his 3rd entry in at #nice.

Opportunity clearly lost as this debuts six positions too low. But this Bloc Party song partly resembles "The Love Within" which I assure you is in fact a good thing. "Sex Magik" doesn't appear to relate to Red Hot Chili Peppers though outside of the song title. They have 6 entries with this in at #75.

Bakar has another entry with this one catching on pretty quickly for me. "Free" is his 4th at #79.

Ending a seven-year absence from the chart is Florence + the Machine. "King" sneaks in for a 5th entry, coming in at #98.

Edition No.644
Songs retire at 75 weeks

With the top of the chart being especially strong at the moment, it's only further kudos to Augie March for extending their stay at the top of the chart in relative comfort. With "The Derangement" now up to 3 weeks at #1, a new challenger emerges at #2 with Denzel Curry moving on up with "Walkin". Kyla Imani manages to hold her spot at #3 meaning that Methyl Ethel slide all the way back to #4, even though it's a song that I'm not getting sick of or anything. And yep, IDLES are #5 again.

I wonder if Adam Newling was wanting to quickly rush a single following his H100 success. At least it worked on me because now he has a second entry. "Singing Blackbird" is #34.

Methyl Ethel debut for the third consecutive week, if only they had other songs they've recently released to help keep that streak going. Oh well. "Kids on Holiday" is #54 for a 13th entry.

Speaking of albums, two further alt-J tracks are in this week bringing them up to 25 entries to date. "Walk A Mile" is #59 and "Happier When You're Gone" is #73.

I was supposed to see Midnight Oil this past week but it has been delayed a few weeks due to the drummer getting COVID. This is the standout from their latest album and holds up quite well relative to their older material. "At the Time of Writing" is their 1st entry on the chart in at #64.

Perth-based Paul Wood releases music under the moniker Good news, now we can eat all the vampires; because of course he does. "Aviary" is #80 for a debut entry.

And lastly, I wasn't huge on that big Pusha T song recently but this newest one is better. "Hear Me Clearly" is his 12th and Nigo's 1st entries to date, closing out the week at #88.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 21/3/22
Edition No.645
Songs retire at 75 weeks

It certainly was a week with a bit more consolidation of the status quo, as the top 5 stays in exactly the same order. It was pretty close between Augie March and Denzel Curry but the former wins out again for a 4th week. Kyla Imani wins her respective battle against Methyl Ethel for the #3 spot, while yeah, for now IDLES simply won't die.

I think above all else this production is stunning. Newcomer to the chart Just A Gent has been a name I've been vaguely aware of, but I'm so glad I gave this an eventual chance. Meanwhile it's a second entry for Arno Faraji who notable made my EOY two years ago. "Who Would Have Thought" is #11.

This sounds quite like "Blow My High (Members Only)" by Kendrick Lamar and I won't be convinced otherwise. It's a fairly familiar set of artists collaborating though in the form of EARTHGANG (5th entry), JID (9th) and J. Cole (10th!). "WATERBOYZ" comes in at #27.

It's important contextually to point out that the last Black Keys album was full of covers; while I was nonplussed by it, it's harsh to write them off on that basis. "Wild Child" is proof that they've still got fun rockers in them with this one having maybe a pinch of Django Django in it (probably not). It's their 12th entry at #30.

I'm not going to compare this anything but I will say just how impressively well written this is. Lisa Mitchell follows up from her 2021 chart presence with 4th entry "Dreaming, Swimming" in at #36.

The Stroppies sounded pretty Australian to me before I even looked them up, and yes it turns out they're a supergroup including members of Dick Diver and The Stevens among others. At least in the lo-fi nature of it, "The Perfect Crime" isn't too far removed from "Middle Sea" by Yuck but just without the grungey riffs. They are new to the chart with this one in at #40.

And here we have The Temper Trap's Dougy Mandagi going full Thom Yorke on top of a minimalist electronic production - where do I sign? The frontman has his first solo entry via the project BLOODMOON, with "Disarm" in at #46.

The weird intro here is "Little Acorns" by The White Stripes hours, except that's where the similarities end. It's a lovely Augie March tune that really invites you in like much of the record does. "The Animals" is their 7th entry at #48.

Vein.fm include a feature from EOY alumnus Bones on their latest album and have also toured with Every Time I Die. And yes, their band name implies that I should be calling them Veinie. "Wavery" is a little different to what I typically listen to / chart but their 1st entry is #60.

I'm glad George Alice is back in the chart so soon. "Haunted" is her 2nd entry in at #67.

This new Johnny Hunter song sounds like the SEN radio station theme song thingy. I am full of amazing takes this week, meanwhile "Endless Days" is their 4th entry to date in at #75.

I will be seeing Wet Leg live later this year which shall be fun. "Angelica" is their 4th entry at #84.

Speaking of seeing bands live soon, Pond are another one, and this comes from their deluxe version of their last album. "Lights of Leeming'" is a 9th track to debut on the chart at #90.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 28/3/22
Edition No.646
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Despite the significant shift, the #1 was actually quite an easy decision this week. In fact, with Denzel Curry finally getting his first #1 with "Walkin", it was actually the #2 spot which was more closely contested, as Kyla Imani moves up a spot with "Big Plans" which sees Augie March slide down to #3. Northlane make a decent move into #4 with Methyl Ethel making up the numbers down to #5.

So there were a duo of songs from the Nigo album thing that have made a very big / late impression on me. First up, the absolute insanity of "Paper Plates" which should not work as well as it does, and it's #13 for Pharrell Williams' 13th and A$AP Ferg's 10th entries to date; then we have the poorly credited "Punch Bowl" where crediting Pusha T just for the added name value makes for a rather confusing situation, however it's #17 for Clipse's 1st entry. Nigo ends the day with 3 entries himself.

If not for that, Horror My Friend were initially on track for the highest debut of the week lol. "Devotion" is a rocker and it's #40 for their 3rd entry.

Not much to this one and I can't say I'm Kodak Black's biggest fan, but against the Kanye(?)-esque beat this works quite nicely. "I Wish" is Kodak's 2nd entry in at #54.

You won't see a rant about the state of the charts from me, I'm just happy there's a song that could redeem the dismal situation on the IPAC last week. Megan Thee Stallion (9th entry) and Dua Lipa (7th) collaborate on "Sweetest Pie" at #57.

Annie Hamilton has a 3rd entry at #nice with "Night Off", a very foreign and bizarre concept for yours truly.

Okey dokey. You may be aware that King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are a band that release music with frightening frequency, but as far as I am aware this is one of if not their longest tracks to date. "The Dripping Tap" is 18 minutes of varying familiar sounds which may not be at their best form, but it's worth the journey. For their 40th entry to date, it comes in at #83.

Edition No.647
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Never in doubt was Denzel Curry who celebrates a 2nd week at #1. Kyla Imani has a non-zero chance of top spot at some stage though, as "Big Plans" refuses to give up at #2. Augie March won't go away quickly either, still at #3 ahead of Northlane and a big bump for Clipse and Nigo.

I was not going to chart this until next week, but at the same time this has grown on me very quickly. Midnight Oil have a second entry with "We Resist", which was the opener to their excellent set last week. Who knows what it will do from here but for now it's #14.

It appeared possible that Arcade Fire would never get beyond 9 entries but they do get their 10th today. "The Lightning II" is one of two teasers from an upcoming album and it calls to mind a lot of their "The Suburbs" material, which is a good thing. It's #26.

This is perhaps the strangest Guerilla Toss song I've heard to date and yet it has no issue charting for me. "Live Exponential" is #37 for their 4th entry.

Well ahead of Baker Boy, Jessica Mauboy and Birdz, the true kings of Northern Territory as far as this chart is concerned is King Stingray. 3 entries in now as "Camp Dog" comes in at #50.

I wish I could get into Melody's Echo Chamber more but she always has at least some hit potential whenever new music pops up. "Personal Message" (and not "massage" like I keep reading oops) is #63 for a 3rd entry.

Michael Dunstan hails from Northam in inland WA, which is interesting because this feels way more coasty/surfy. "Walk the Streets on Sunrise" is some lovely stuff in at #63 for his 1st entry.

Racking up the entries now is BENEE, as "Never Ending" is her 8th entry at #75.

Jack White is dropping some real oddball songs at the moment. I was not keen on the Q-Tip collab but this b-side (or song released at the same time) is much more enjoyable. "Queen Of The Bees" is #83 for his 16th solo entry.

Following on from their debut entry not long ago, Ghost Care name a song after a road that I have travelled on once. "Bussell Hwy" is their 2nd entry in at #86.

There's definitely a bit of Fatboy Slim in this Wongo song namely "Weapon of Choice", although I might be the only one who can hear it. "Funky & Chunky" is Wongo's 4th and Tony Romera's 1st entries, in at #88.

And another artist flying the flag for WA this week, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets push up to 8 entries with "Bob Holiday" at #96.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 11/4/22
Edition No.648
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Turns out the chart is quite stable at the moment. To be clear it's far from stale though, as Denzel Curry continues to wow me with "Walkin" spending a 3rd week at the top, ahead of Kyla Imani and Augie March still close behind at #2 and #3 respectively. Northlane seem to be stuck at #4 but "Plenty" is still very much holding its ground. The big surprise was Clipse and Nigo slipping out of the top 5 after the bullet last week, as Das Sound Kollektiv and IHAKA sneak a few places up to #5 with "Fuel for the Fire".

You could say it's quite on brand for me to go back to the same well for chart hits, and yeah I've got one here. The new alt-J album is probably only their third best, but there are many deep cuts on it that seem to have gone under the radar. My best explanation for this is that "Losing My Mind" is absolutely a slow burner but it hits hard. They are up to 26 entries with this one at #15.

So I'm trying to catch up on album listening, and while I wasn't totally sold on Yard Act's album, there were a couple tracks that stood out. "Tall Poppies" is also a slow burner in itself as it's not another "Fixer Upper" by any means; however James Smith's delivery and the brilliant storytelling makes it hard to ignore. Although not for everyone it's absolutely my thing, as it debuts at #24. Also a bit further down the chart it's worth shouting out "100% Endurance" at #80, which aids them in getting to 5 entries following today.

All of this week's highest 3 debuts are album cuts. Again the Nigo album wasn't consistent enough (despite the fact that this is the 4th entry from it lol), but this one is a bop. Tyler, The Creator adds a comma to make sure he isn't copying The Lazy Eyes, but "Come On, Let's Go" is his 11th and Nigo's 4th entries to date in at #31.

This latest one from Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers kicks all sorts of ass. I can definitely see "Girl Sports" becoming an absolute anthem and my fingers are crossed. It's #41 for their 3rd entry.

A$AP Ant is admittedly one of the lesser known members of the A$AP Mob, but as he apparently contributed to "Yamborghini High" this is his 2nd entry! "The God Hour" has some potential I reckon, and it's helped by a decent contribution by A$AP Rocky of course (22nd entry). It's #46.

Back fairly soon following their last entry are The Belligerents. "9 Times Out of 10" is a bit long but it's really catchy, in at #51 for their 7th entry.

Art d'Ecco appears to be quite an enigmatic character as it's apparently not known who he is. "Palm Slave" is extremely eclectic though and definitely a strong recommendation for basically anyone on this site tbh. It's #66 for his debut entry.

Orlando... is... finally... releasing... A SECOND ALBUM. That's right, and by the time the second Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs LP drops, it will have been just over a decade since the last one. Has it been too long of an absence? Only time will tell, as some of the standalone singles and various tracks have been decent and there have been occasional misses. "Blood In the Snow" is rather interesting and I can't quite put my finger on why it works, but it does. It's #70 for (only) his 21st entry to date.

Across the ditch, Aldous Harding clocks up her 5th entry in at #72, which is timely because it's called "Tick Tock".

All this week lacks is Teenage Joans it seems, because Teenage Dads have themselves a 2nd entry. At #75 "Exit Sign" is the most Strokesy thing I have heard in years and that's including everything from the last Strokes album.

I'm still not quite sold on that initial Superorganism single but this next one is quite good. "It's Raining" at #78 is their 4th entry and a 1st each for Dylan Cartlidge and Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus.

Harry Styles is in my chart, yep. I suppose it shouldn't be a surprise at all for anyone that has heard "As It Was", which is an undeniable tune that scratches many of my itches. His debut entry on the chart is #84.

No shock however that King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have debuted. "Magenta Mountain" is in fact less mountainous than the last single, but at #89 it's their 41st entry so far.

T-Pain is in my chart, yep. The Denzel Curry album is very good and I suppose you should expect some further entries to come. "Troubles" is his 22nd and T-Pain's 1st entries to date and it's #90.

I caught wind of 1300 covering "Gangnam Style" from Like a Version recently, and I suppose I'd be more interested in this making more of a H100 push next January. "Rocksta" is their 1st entry and it's #93.

Hans Zimmer has made my chart for his debut en- okay not quite. Marlon Craft basically sounds like Benny the Butcher on this track and that's all you need to know really. It's #97 for the New York rapper's debut entry.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 18/4/22
Edition No.649
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I might only be trying to describe the difficult chart decisions I need to make in different ways, but there was a lot of pressure on much of the top 10 this week. The #1 spot was one notable exception, as Denzel Curry looks more and more comfortable sitting in top spot with "Walkin" now up to four weeks. Northlane make a pretty big move up to #2 with "Plenty" after it looked like it would go no further than #4 for many weeks. This sees Kyla Imani slip down to #3, which likely sees her #1 ambitions dashed for now. Das Sound Kollektiv and IHAKA push up to #4, and Clipse and Nigo snatch back the #5 spot, with the result being that Augie March are booted out of the top 5 altogether.

First up this week is Brittney Parks who releases music under the moniker Sudan Archives. I'm pretty impressed by "Home Maker", which is her first ever entry in at #31.

The new Father John Misty album has not been as well received as I would have thought or wanted, but I like it. "Buddy's Rendezvous" unsurprisingly has nothing to do with Lance, but it is Tillman's 26th entry to date in at #34.

Before I even heard the track, I saw plenty of hype about this collaboration and it makes me wonder just how an entire album from all three would go down. For now "Neck & Wrist" at #52 is seemingly just a standalone song, with Pusha T (13th entry) the main artist featuring Jay-Z (29th) and Pharrell Williams (14th).

"In A Minute, Sublime" is the only man-oh-man-you-think-you're-so-un-American song to debut this week, and the iTunes metadata had me in a spin this morning when I discovered that this is exactly 0.04 seconds longer than "Buddy's Rendezvous". But anyway it makes for Methyl Ethel's 14th entry at #56.

I do like the new ScHoolboy Q song. but given the artist and song title, some on this forum may have expected it to debut higher. "Soccer Dad" is his 15th entry with it coming in at #71.

It seems there won't be a song called "Lerp" on the new Interpol album, which is clearly a missed opportunity to complete the other part of the anagram started by dropping "Toni". In any case it's their 9th entry at #80.

And lastly, Father follows up his hit from earlier this year, made even cooler by debuting in the same week as a FJM song. "Horsepower" is #84 for a 2nd entry.

Edition No.650
Songs retire at 75 weeks

When it comes to how many Aussie metalcore #1s have occurred on this chart, I can't say that I've had plenty, but I can at least now say I've had "Plenty". In likely the most notable surprise on my chart this year thus far, Northlane take the #1 from Denzel Curry who previously seemed unstoppable. While "Walkin" slips down to #2, "Big Plans", "Fuel for the Fire" and "Punch Bowl" keep their respective positions proving how much of an arm wrestle this chart continues to be.

The city of Liverpool isn't known for its big name bands sadly, but Courting are clearly keen to buck the trend. "Tennis" is a fairly low top debut this week, and it's their first in at #63.

I really loved the last Interpol album so it will be interesting to see how this upcoming one will compare. "Something Changed" is their 10th entry at #70.

I promise I'm not scraping the bottom of a barrel or anything, but Dean Lewis is in my chart after not being his biggest fan in recent years. "Hurtless" is good stuff in at #86 for his debut entry.

Three entries up for Sydney's Dear Seattle as they too have a new album on the way. "Feel the Weight" is #93.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 2/5/22
Edition No.651
Songs retire at 75 weeks

This week could be touted as the most eclectic top five I've ever had. It's topped by Northlane who celebrate a second week at the summit with "Plenty". Denzel Curry isn't far behind with "Walkin" still one of the strongest hits of the year. Making the big splash up to #3 is Yard Act with "Tall Poppies", it's now their standalone highest peaking track. Music industry powerhouses Kyla Imani and Das Sound Kollektiv are each down one place but retain top five status for now.

Today is a pretty momentous induction into the 10 entries club, with Vince Staples underwhelming me at first with "ROSE STREET", but the album has allowed it to grow on me. It might lack some of the unique identity many of his big hits have had in the past but it's a bop, and it's #26.

I rarely debut multiple songs from the same artist in the same week, and when I do subscribe to the album bomb, it's generally no more than two. That's what happened with Northlane, because as it turns out their new stuff is really cool. Title track "Obsidian" is #30 and recent single "Carbonized" is #55, taking them to 3 entries to date.

Editors are not a band I have followed much and perhaps unfairly so. "An End Has a Start" is an EOY entry jam from back in the day, because now I can start to look on my retrospective lists retrospectively; but after a bit of an absence the Birmingham band are back with a new single out. "Heart Attack" is their first entry on this chart as it comes in at #32.

In similar fashion to "ROSE STREET", I was aware of "Ur Mum" by Wet Leg already but the album put it in the spotlight for me. They have 5 entries with this one at #42.

Another British band back with a new tune is Hot Chip. "Down" seems to be reminscent of some of Joe Goddard's solo work, at least "Home" to an extent. For just the band's 2nd entry following up on the iconic "One Life Stand" all those years ago, it comes in at #57.

IDK has announced an EP exclusively produced by KAYTRANADA, which is great news for those who love all caps artists. "Taco" is his 5th entry at #61.

Two up-and-comers in the country right now are Tasman Keith and Genesis Owusu. They combine on "CHEQUE", which are their 3rd and 8th entries respectively. It has an "Otis" reference before switching up the beat less than a minute in, so yeah of course it's cool. It's #64.

Nine entries for Purity Ring who make a comeback with "graves" at #74.

Just A Gent doubles his money with "Lightspeed" in for a 2nd entry at #82.

I have been a casual watcher of Office Hours for a couple years now (basically since you-know-what), and for someone who didn't really know Tim Heidecker beforehand, I enjoy both his comedy and indie rock stylings. He didn't manage to chart from his 2020 album but his new single breaks through here for an initial entry. "Buddy" is #85.

The new ONEFOUR song titled "CAP" - debuting at #93 for their 3rd entry - contains the lyric "take that risk at your own risk". Make with that what you will.

I don't want to use the g word but just sometimes I am happy to vibe with a no-nonsense commercial-sounding clubby tune. Sofi Tukker have 3 entries and Mahmut Orhan is new as "Forgive Me" debuts at #95.

And lastly, in part because I still like them on Facebook so I noticed they had a new song, iamamiwhoami have a 2nd entry (although Jonna has another entry separately as ionnalee) with "Zeven" at... #97! :p

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 9/5/22
Edition No.652
Songs retire at 75 weeks

We have a new number one with Yard Act making good on their momentum building in recent weeks. "Tall Poppies" beats out Northlane for top spot who slip to #2, with Denzel Curry also moving down one place to #3. Father John Misty makes a big move to #4 with "Buddy's Rendezvous" just ahead of Kyla Imani slipping to #5.

Fontaines D.C. manage two debuts from the new album in the top third of the chart. I don't want to attempt to pronounce "In ár gCroíthe go deo" but it translates to "in our hearts forever". It's #15, with "How Cold Love Is" also coming in at #31, with the Irish outfit landing on 15 entries following today's chart.

Hot new band The Smile continue their soaring rise in popularity out of nowhere, with "Free In the Knowledge" in at #28 for their 3rd entry.

Lykke Li had quite a lot of success in the first half of last decade, but other than one EOY entry she had little to show after that for me. "HIGHWAY TO YOUR HEART" is a redeeming return for her, her 5th entry at #38.

I'm far from done with the Denzel Curry album, with "Worst Comes To Worst" in at #39 for his 23rd entry (wow).

CLAMM are from the World's Greatest City™, with "Bit Much" their debut entry at #61.

Quickly building up the entries are Wet Leg, with "Convincing" their 6th at #76.

The other day I was too busy to flick on my phone music in the car so I had it on triple j, but they were playing something crap; so I turned it over to Unearthed and really enjoyed this banger. I've charted Ta-ku, Tuka and Wafia, so why not WA-FU? "Seek" is the NSW producer's first entry at #82.

Clearly the biggest album coming out this Friday is the one from The Black Keys. "It Ain't Over" is a 13th entry at #95.

And closing out the week is another Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs teaser track for the album coming soon! "Crosswalk" is Orlando's 22nd entry at #98.

Songs retire at 75 weeks

Yard Act are the tallest poppy of all at the moment, with "Tall Poppies" celebrating two weeks on top. This matches the effort for Northlane, who remain at #2. Denzel Curry isn't going anywhere for now, with "Walkin" holding steady at #3 ahead of rises for Clipse & Nigo to #4 and Vince Staples at #5.

The more I looked at the top half of my chart, I realised just how much the Trupa Trupa album clicked with me this past week. While "Uniforms" makes a triumphant return, it's "Far Away" which takes the headlines. The Polish outfit have their second entry, with this one in at #7.

Obviously Kendrick Lamar is happening on the chart once again, regardless of the extent to which the album ends up growing on me. "The Heart Part 5" is the initial teaser prior to the full record having come out on Friday, it's #10 for his 45th entry.

And yet this might be even more of an unexpected debut on the chart this week than Trupa Trupa. In for a 3rd entry, Hooligan Hefs is #28 with "Make Money Not Friends".

Srirachi is not how you spell the sauce but much like Labrinth, it may be another example of music affecting my grasp of the English language. The Melburnian of Vietnamese heritage has come up with quite the bop here, excellent production and cool flow. "U Want More Sir?" is her 1st entry in at #49.

As he hits the top 5, Vince Staples gets another entry. "LEMONADE" is his 11th and Ty Dolla $ign's 6th entries respectively, in at #56.

I've been listening to a lot of Northlane lately so forgive me for thinking of them when this song kicks off. But indeed, it's definitely the return of Metric, in at #68 for a 7th entry with "All Comes Crashing".

Lizzo is impressively up to 4 entries on the chart. "About Damn Time" is some catchy fun, in at #89.

Closing out the week is actual Northlane, "Cypher" is their 4th entry at #91.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 23/5/22
Edition No.654
Songs retire at 75 weeks

A lot of genuinely big moves happened this week, but that was never on the cards for top spot, with Yard Act in complete control with "Tall Poppies" for a third week. Whether you consider Pusha T and Clipse two separate artists is a matter of semantics (albeit a very easily resolved one in my humble opinion), but "Punch Bowl" breaks through against the odds to snatch the #2 spot. That spot seemed destined for Vince Staples earlier in the week to be fair, who settles for #3 with "ROSE STREET". Kendrick Lamar makes a move to #4 with "The Heart Part 5" which could be a precursor (or not??) for what may be coming. Of the two big #1s to slide down this week, it's Northlane who are slightly more fortunate by hanging on at #5 with "Plenty".

Kendrick Lamar is back, and I can imagine if you're not a fan it might have been a pretty challenging week to sift through social media, but as expected I was swept up by all the hype. Did the album live up to said hype though? To be honest I'm really not certain yet, at time of writing I'm yet to rank the album tracks for IPAC purposes but I know that could be fairly arduous. Early days, I don't think "Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers" lives up to the big three albums (to which my ranking of GKMC > DAMN. > TPAB will probably remain in place for a very long time), but there's so many intriguing moments to dissect. "Mirror" in at #9 is the album closer which really sums up Kendrick's feelings well on removing himself from the pedestal he's been placed on, the beat is fantastic and it's one of his more relatable tracks. "Father Time" at #20 is a seriously well-produced banger about daddy issues, making for Sampha's 3rd entry. "N95" was probably the song that jumped out the most on first listen but settles for #44. I get a feeling that "Worldwide Steppers", in at #55, won't be a fan favourite but I love the weird beat. K-Dot ends the day with a remarkable 49 entries, with potential to crack the half century very soon.

A return I would have been almost as hyped for if I hadn't discovered it was out without any notice! Phoebe from Two People / Snakadaktal has released this track under the moniker Phoebe Go, and hopefully there is more to come. Her second solo entry following that Hopium feature, "We Don't Talk" is lovely and it's #33.

Maybe I'm not as hot on the Pusha T album as everyone else, but I cannot deny there are multiple bops on the track list. "Brambleton" is almost the best of the bunch too, in at #37 for his 14th entry.

Another debut for King bloody Gizzard. "Candles" is #41 for their 42nd entry, a real highlight from the varied yet rather enjoyable "Omnium Gatherum" LP.

I think Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are one of those bands where I might never get into a full album of theirs, by virtue of just sounding a bit too similar on album tracks. However there are a multiple tracks outside the big hit that I liked and "My Echo" is one of the standouts. They have 5 tracks to date on this chart and this one comes in at a respectable #49.

Teenage Joans continues a great year for all the Teen/Teenage Aussie bands, with "Terrible" their 2nd debut to date on the chart at #57.

Polish lads Trupa Trupa continue their good run with "Kwietnik" at #68.

A slight departure from their previous entries but fun in a Black Keys kind of way. The Grogans are #75 with "Inside My Mind", a 3rd entry.

I hate to be a Debbie downer (heh heh relevant Courtney Barnett reference) but Warpaint's album was a little on the underwhelming side. "Melting" though is quite cool, a 12th entry at #89.

This is just too catchy and idgaf. The absolutely not a teenager Leah Kate is new to the chart at #92 with "10 Things I Hate About You".

Helado Negro makes for the second foreign language song title in the chart right now, which does not include Raj Mahal because his problem is that he clearly cannot spell. "Ya no estoy aquí" is a 3rd entry closing out the week at #97.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 30/5/22
Edition No.655
Songs retire at 75 weeks

It's a very dreaded hippity hop top 5 this week, topped by rap superstars Yard Act who celebrate a 4th week at the pinnacle. Kendrick Lamar makes his move to #2 with "The Heart Part 5", a track that wows me with every listen despite it being nothing more than a precursor to his album. "Punch Bowl" by Clipse & Nigo is unlucky to slip as far back as #3 despite being a genuine contender at the moment. They did do enough though to be ahead of Vince Staples, who takes his first backward step with "ROSE STREET" down to #4. And at #5, once again it's Kendrick Lamar with album closer "Mirror" leapfrogging its way to #5.

A bit of scrolling is required to get to the first debut this week, unfortunately, but it's still a worthy one nonetheless. Perth band South Summit sound like a mix between Young The Giant and (fittingly) Spacey Jane, and I'm glad I stumbled upon this. "Tired of Waiting" is their first entry at #47.

I've already mentioned that I mostly enjoyed the Pusha T album, albeit not quite enough to buy it. "Call My Bluff" is his 15th entry at #51.

Okey dokey. In the words of Ladyhawke, something something mixed emotions, because while this is pretty cool, it does raise a certain elephant (triple j like a version) in the room. Is "HOTEL LOBBY" the sign that Migos as a trio are one ane done? Unc and Phew are apparently a new group except it's just Quavo and Takeoff on their own without Offset. Somewhat sadface. The revenge for "Bad and Boujee" that no one saw coming, this track is #53 in for Quavo's 4th and Takeoff's 1st solo entries, though that's a bit of an inaccurate way to look at it if this "collab" ends up being more than a one-time event.

I think it was a given that Kendrick Lamar would again have some debuts this week as I digest the album further. "Mother I Sober" (first entry for Beth Gibbons) is #57, "United In Grief" is #61, and "Count Me Out" is #75, with Kendrick extending his record entry tally to 52.

Also with multiple album tracks entering this week is King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard once again, with the Melburnians not giving up the total entries war they have been fighting with Kendrick. "Persistence" is #72 and "Gaia" is #90, bringing them up to 44 entries to date.

Closing up shop at least for the commentary, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have another debut in with "Blue Eye Lake" their 6th at #81.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 6/6/22
Edition No.656
Songs retire at 75 weeks

While Kendrick Lamar's attack on top spot looms larger and larger, Yard Act continue to hold firm at #1. "The Heart Part 5" still has some space for now on "Mirror" which pushes up to #3, with Vince Staples keeping his #4 spot and pushing Clipse & Nigo down to #5.

Eight debuts this week, which are topped by a band that has very steadily grown on me since their somewhat disproportionate H100 successes really bugged me a few years back. Yep, now I'm all about that Ocean Alley, and it's "Deepest Darkness" which gets their second highest peak to date at #16 for their 6th entry.

I want everyone to always listen to the songs I chart, don't get me wrong, but I do think there could be some specific aus-charts potential in this one. Hector Gachan is Bosnian-Australian living in Edinburgh, which is pretty cool in itself, and then the track is some of the neatest synth pop I've heard in a while. "Electric Company" is his 1st entry at #26.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Next month I'm seeing Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who are responsible for one of my favourite albums ever in "Fever To Tell", which other than Franz Ferdinand and Pearl Jam would probably make for the next best album I've seen (partly) performed live as I'll never see The White Stripes and will probably never see Radiohead (and Vokol-Knightmare doesn't tour as far as I'm aware). It does make sense that a new album is on the way; and even though it won't have dropped by the time the gig comes around, they will at least have released one song. That song is "Spitting Off the Edge of the World", a collaboration with (and somewhat influenced by) EOY alumnus Perfume Genius. They have 7 and 5 entries respectively to date, this one is #32.

So I didn't expect to enjoy the new Quelle Chris stuff as much as I did. He is new to the chart with "The Sky is Blue Because the Sunset is Red" at #43, it's his and Moruf's 1st entries thus far, with EOY conqueror Pink Siifu in for his 5th.

This might be the most intense track on The Smile's album, or at least it is once the big riff kicks in. "Thin Thing" is their 4th entry at #56.

I felt like UMI was already known to some on the forum and I was right. The Seattle local has a first entry with "wish that i could" at #67.

And in quite the surprise of the week, Bad Bunny has a second entry on this chart. "Otro Atardecer" translates to "Another Sunset" which I can certainly hear in the track, although lyrically it's unsurprising territory where Mr. Bunny croons about missing his girl and doing certain things with her. Newcomers The Marías apparently covered "Dakiti" last year so it makes sense they are here, and it's a good result entering at #71.

And everyone's favourite purveyor of fine umlauts is back, Nilüfer Yanya at #74 for a 7th entry with "the dealer".

Songs retire at 75 weeks

Despite the truly elite top section right now, I need to accept that I just love James Smith rambling about a most handsome man and still the best footballer that Crewe Alexandra overlooked. Indeed it's Yard Act who score six weeks in top spot now and don't look like weakening just yet. Kendrick Lamar again occupies the #2 and #3 positions, with "The Heart Part 5" still having a healthy margin over "Mirror". And it's another week where Vince Staples appears unlucky to only be #4 with "ROSE STREET", meanwhile Clipse & Nigo are squeezed out of the top 5 in lieu of The Smile who reach a new peak of #5 with "Free in the Knowledge".

Solid batch of new arrivals this week with a fairly surprising leader. I say that as I was originally not too keen on the Everything Everything songs I tried out, only for the synth line (and later everything else) in "Shark Week" to really hook me in. It's #25 for their 11th entry. Insert Step Brothers reference here, fix that fucking drywall now etc etc

Jungle are the sort of artist where they seem so close to greatness while never quite getting there. I'm wondering if "GOOD TIMES" could break that trend, because it's showing a lot of potential coming in at #29 for their 4th entry.

Up next is a band that constantly appear on the periphery for me on account being categorised adjacently to the likes of IDLES and more. As a result, I feel like I've ignored Swedish five-piece Viagra Boys for far too long, who have a couple albums under their belt with a third coming next month. At #33 they are new to the chart with "Punk Rock Loser", which as well as being very cool is also quite... loose.

It might not be as packed with highlights as its predecessors but the new Flume album is a decent listen. I'm thinking "I Can't Tell" is the absolute standout at this stage, at #36 for Streten's 29th and LAUREL's 2nd entries to date.

What seems like the weekly edition of The Smile debuting again, "We Don't Know What Tomorrow Brings" is their 5th entry at #50.

Ooh ahh, singing halleLOOYAH, Phoenix have marked their return with something very quirky indeed (funnily enough a certain aus-charts member making the comment that it sounded like Everything Everything prompted me to give it a go). They have a 5th entry with "Alpha Zulu" at #61.

Don't say it
Don't say it
Don't say it
...
GHOST ON FUCK IT GHOST OFF
Angel Olsen is another artist to make a return to the chart after an absence, in at #nice with "Ghost On" for a 6th entry.
I have fun here.

Taking the cake and then some for the most surprising collaboration of 2022 thus far, or at least being one of the primary contenders, has to be this new one from What So Not. In at #73 with "Mr Regular" (grr where's the dot), it's his 6th entry, Oliver Tree's 2nd, and yes, Killer Mike's 2nd non-RTJ entry.

Capping off a good week for Sydney-based producers, Dave Winnel has a 2nd entry with the more rudimentary but still fun "Real Life" at #79.

"Kiss The Ring" was a random My Chemical Romance unreleased track that came just as their hiatus kicked in, at the time what would seemingly be among the last tracks they'd ever release. So it's fitting that I also like the song they have returned with nearly a decade later, "The Foundations of Decay" a 4th entry closing proceedings out at #95.

Edition No.658
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Maybe the margin was a bit tighter this week? Not that you would know any different, as "Tall Poppies" by Yard Act joins a relatively small group of songs to clock seven weeks at #1 on the chart. It's not a total stalemate though, as Kendrick Lamar jumps ahead of... err, Kendrick Lamar (really not helping my case here), with "Mirror" swapping with "The Heart Part 5" into the #2 spot. Vince Staples remains at #4 for the fourth consecutive week, with The Smile also retaining #5 with some newer hits below the top five evidently not quite ready for a big jump just yet if at all.

Flume album is good. (Not that I looked very hard but) I couldn't find who the vocalist was on this one and although it ties in nicely, it's the production (with support from Clams Casino apparently) that really steals the show. "Go" is his 30th entry to date at #26.

It took way into the chart run of "Gangsta Rap" for me to realise that Fatlip is more than just a Sum 41 song, and is in fact in EOY alumnus group The Pharcyde. This is another cut from the collaboration album he released with Blu, with Self Jupiter being someone I do not know at all, Chali 2na being of Jurassic 5 (and featuring on a Hilltop Hoods song once?) fame, and Gift of Gab being unknown to me (sadly he passed away exactly a year to the day of me writing this ). So yeah, it's a role call song, and it's done rather well at that. I couldn't find what "Look To The Sky" samples but not unlike "The Call" by Madlib it feels Beatles-esque despite the fact that it clearly wouldn't be. Also this marks the first time since "Red Card" two years ago that a song with 5 credited artists has charted. As such it's in for Fatlip's 2nd, Blu's 6th, and the three other artists' 1st entries all respectively, coming in at #33.

I was surprised to learn that There's A Tuesday are from New Zealand. Less surprisingly however, this is just the 3rd song ever to chart with a colon ("Exogenesis: Parts 1, 2 and 3" lmao and "4:44" being the previous two). "To:Amy" is #39 for their debut entry.

I found the Ed Schrader's Music Beat album to be relatively entertaining. Album opener "Pony in the Night" is structurally quite straightforward but the verse-chorus dynamics are really cool. It's the duo's 2nd entry at #45.

I recall that The Smith Street Band getting their debut entry just two years ago was quite an anomaly at the time, so now they prove they're not a one-hit wonder with "I Don't Wanna Do Nothing Forever" for a 2nd entry at #54.

Clocking up 10 entries is Kid Cudi with "Do What I Want" at #60, pretty simple work from him but I'm glad it goes over so well for me.

History repeats itself for the official best friends of California, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. With their last album release I liked the chosen single okay but much preferred "This Ticonderoga"; this time around the comeback single didn't really strike me enough at all but this deep cut is a more than decent offering. "It's Only Natural" is not a hot Crowded House cover which would have got all the Triple M people going, but it is in at #68 for their 11th entry.

Logic now has 3 entries on the chart, which other than his previous single being pretty cringeworthy, is no longer the massive surprise it once may have been. He's partnered up with No I.D. and Madlib previously, and now this sounds like a Beastie Boys song, which I have zero issue with. "Bleed It" does the job in at #76.

To give Northlane so much love this year but completely ignore the band I previously got them mixed up with would have been sacrilege to some. Thornhill have indeed got a new album out which will make the ARIA heavy music category rather interesting [s]lol "Omnium Gatherum" will win[/s]. "Raw" is the Victorian outfit's debut entry at #88.

And closing things out, Nardo Wick was fairly close to charting several months ago but he finally gets his chance now. "Riot" is #96 for his 1st.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 27/6/22
Edition No.659
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Someone hand me my glass of scotch so I can declare that this escalated quickly... Yard Act had thus far seen off several challengers including two big Kendrick Lamar songs, and yet they have been dethroned by a band that three and a half years ago I did not have much time for. It's also a song that last week I briefly commented that (among a couple others) did not appear to be ready for the next step. So now to skip to what happened next - whenever "Deepest Darkness" by Ocean Alley came on this past week, I got so much more out of the amazing guitar tones and euphoric chorus. The lid is off, these guys are seriously good, hopefully there is an album soon. Anyway, "Tall Poppies" still exists, however it has lost some momentum and slips to #2. Vince Staples actually rebounds in all of the chaos, capturing his previous peak of #3 with "ROSE STREET". Kendrick Lamar is arguably the biggest loser of the week though, with "The Heart Part 5" slipping to #4 and "Mirror" catapulting all the way down to #5 even though I still think it's great.

It was a fairly busy week for debuts (and next week is looking even busier, just saying...), and it's topped by a band who have mixed chart results in recent years. Guerilla Toss really do keep the listener guessing with every move they make, "Heathen in Me" has such a warm synth line which is so inviting every time it kicks in. Their 5th entry is #16.

I recently saw Approachable Members of Your Local Community live and one thing I got out of it is they somewhat remind me of The Undercover Dream Lovers. Anyway, I can't remember if this came up on my radar back in January when it dropped but I gave it another listen and it has absolutely clicked. "Come a Little Closer" is the latter's 3rd entry at #32.

Sputnik Sweetheart sounds like an awesome band name even though it was already some sort of novel. "Lindy Hop" is up my bloody alley though. They're new to the chart at #35.

The new album from The Lazy Eyes was better than expected, although to be fair I have now charted two thirds of the album already. "The Seaside" sounds like chilled King Gizzard before then leaning into "Vital Signs" by Midnight Juggernauts, "Hippo" is a psychedelic Tamey/Temples-y instrumental that really needed a bit more substance to it because it's just so rad, and "Imaginary Girl" has a very catchy hook to it which they do repeat quite a bit. The songs are #44, #73 and #79 respectively giving them 9 entries to date.

J4 are three housemates who started a band during lockdowns in Melbourne, with one of the band members apparently being secret because he's apparently well-known (a separate article found implies his name is Aidan and I can't think of who that could be so meh :p). My very brief sleuthing barely lasts the length of "Fast Lane", the band's 1st entry in at #50.

The option is still there for Sly Withers to cover "Jeremy" on Like a Version one day, but at least for now they do have a new single. "Passing Through" is a 2nd entry at #65.

Three of the biggest names in hip hop combine on this track that I honestly wanted a bit more out of, but it does its job. Pharrell Williams (15th entry) is on production duties here allowing 21 Savage (23rd) and Tyler, The Creator (12th) to trade bars on "Cash In Cash Out" at #71.

The Quelle Chris record is a bit experimental and low-key for my usual hip hop tastes, and although it's hard to pick out bite-sized chart-worthy tracks, there are some rewarding moments throughout. His 2nd entry "Cui Prodest" is a 1st for both Denmark Vessey and J Jig Cicero, in at #88.

And for something extremely not experimental, here's OneRepublic ripping off Portugal. The Man for the latest Tom Cruise movie which I actually saw. A sentence that a decade ago would have made very little sense, but in 2022 it's "I Ain't Worried" closing out the week for Ryan Tedder & co's 3rd entry at #100.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 4/7/22
Edition No.660
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Ocean Alley double their money at the top with "Deepest Darkness". However it's Vince Staples who makes a notable push up to #2 with "ROSE STREET", surprisingly pushing Yard Act all the way down to a lowly #3. Kendrick Lamar remains in the top 5 with just the one track, as "The Heart Part 5" keeps at #4 ahead of Flume and LAUREL moving into the #5 spot with "I Can't Tell".

A lot of newbies in the chart this week, but this one stood out for multiple reasons. "Sometimes" is partly sung in French which is cool, with Mattyeux previously part of seemingly noteworthy duo Videoclub. I can't recall Princess Chelsea from anything before either but her parts work extremely well here. They make an excellent first splash debuting at #9.

Meanwhile, Perfume Genius is quite a known quantity in these parts. 6th entry in at #16 is the rather eerie "Photograph".

Stella Donnelly didn't quite crack the chart with her previous single, which if ignoring the Methyl Ethel feature earlier this year, could have made her a one-album wonder. That seemed unlikely to last very long though and of course here we are. Title track for the new album "Flood" is #28, an 8th entry.

It took me a bit of time to shake off thinking of System Of A Down whenever trying to imagine the hook on this, but this ends up doing rather well. Spotify success story Surf Curse are new to the chart at #36 with "Sugar".

Metric seem to be known for many mid-level hits on my chart; not to say that they don't have the tools to make an absolute banger though as we all know that "The Shade" exists. Anyway, "What Feels Like Eternity" is a really cool tune in at #40 for their 8th entry.

Elsewhere it's four entries for King Princess, with "Too Bad" initially likely slated for a higher debut than it ends up with. In any case it's #46.

Patience paid off for this Marlon Williams track, "Thinking of Nina" is #48 for his 2nd song to make this chart thus far.

Hercules and Love Affair does well here to recreate "The System Dreams In Total Darkness" (meshed probably with other The National songs too I guess). "Grace" is the first entry on this particular chart (not EOY obviously), in at #55.

Okay so I don't watch new movies much at all, and when I say new I'm really referring to the past decade too to be quite honest, and I certainly don't watch anything new that is marketed to the younger generation. With that said, this track from the new Minions movie... it's a bop, really. And yep, it's a collab between Diana Ross (1st entry!) and Tame Impala (26th), something that even midway through last decade would have been absolutely bonkers, but given his clout it all makes perfect sense now. "Turn Up the Sunshine" is #56.

Maxïmo Park just being Maxïmo Park, chorus is a ripper. Debut entry "Great Art" is #63.

Was glad to come across this on Twitter the other day. Pool Kids are new at #70 with "I Hope You're Right".

Absolutely not new to the chart are La Luz who are currently on tour in the States. "San Fernando Shadow Blues" is one of two tracks they've just dropped from their 2021 sessions, it's their 17th entry and it's #76.

Role call rap song #1 of the week. YG (7th entry), Tyga (4th), 21 Savage (24th) and BIA (1st) combine for "Run" at #81.

Role call rap song #2 of the week, although a completely different style. Dot Da Genius is technically new due to being credited despite only being on production duties here; previously he's contributed to charting tracks before like "Reborn" by KIDS SEE GHOSTS and "Worst Come To Worst" by Denzel Curry currently in the chart right now. So it makes sense that Denzel (24th) and Kid Cudi (11th) are involved here too, as is JID who shockingly to me is already in the 10 entries club wow. "Talk About Me" is #84.

Adelaide producer Godlands was a Mega Playlist Of Doom product earlier this calendar year with "Out My Face" ultimately making #149 in my 2021 EOY. "Tell Me" is her 2nd entry at #88, with British producer Tisoki new to the chart.

Token charter from the Drake album... and it's the one that sticks out like a sore thumb right at the end of the track list "Jimmy Cooks" is his 30th and 21 Savage's 25th entries to date, in at #96.

And Kendrick Lamar perhaps closes out this album era with one more charting song, the Pharrell-produced "Mr. Morale" at #99 featuring newcomer Tanna Leone.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 11/7/22
Edition No.661
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Ocean Alley thought they could cruise into what would have been a third week at #1... but no. Vince Staples takes top spot with "ROSE STREET", becoming his first number one on the chart after many attempts! Yard Act are back up to #2 and a return back to #1 is not impossible even at this point. Kendrick Lamar keeps steady at #4 with Mattyeux and Princess Chelsea jumping to fifth spot.

Kicking off with current top 10 placeholder Hector Gachan, who has a 2nd entry with the mouthful title "If It's About Us, Not Without Us" at #16.

Kicking off with current top 27 placeholder J4, who have a 2nd entry as well and that was far too easy. "Try to be Cool" is #40.

While this is a 2nd entry as well, Anna Lunoe has had an eight year absence! She collaborated with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs on 2014 track "Feels Like" and now answers that question with new song "Like Me" at #51.

After collaborating with Elton John this past week or so, Yard Act are scaling unprecedented heights at the moment. Unrelated though, 6th entry "Pour Another" is #59.

Claud has collaborated with Bleachers and appears on Phoebe Bridgers, and their track here kind of resembles a mix between Guerilla Toss and Soccer Mommy somehow. Either that or I'm tired, or que no los dos. "Go Home!" is not a That Mitchell and Webb Look reference sadly (HENNIMOREEEEE), but it does debut at #73.

I had to check if this track from La Felix was already on Zacco's chart and it turns out yes. "Blonde Sunset" is a debut entry at #78.

Every fortnight in Perth, a band starting with S are doing something through. Surely next week San Cisco will be pissing through. Anyway now we have Spacey Jane's 5th entry at #89 titled "Pulling Through".

I love a good loop hole, or rather, loo pole, or loop ole (as in, the phrase one says when they want to play "Big Ole" by Pink Siifu on repeat). I have fun here. "State of Mind" is a debut entry on the chart for Adelaide's Loopole, closing off a great week for Aussie acts at #93.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 18/7/22
Edition No.662
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The recent movements near the top of the chart have been in part down to several songs with longevity finally losing momentum, with the songs losing the least momentum managing to win out; that understandably created quite a volatile situation which we have seen play out this week. A new leader arrives via Perfume Genius who launches up from #7 to #1 with "Photograph", just sneaking ahead of Vince Staples who slips down a place with "ROSE STREET". Meanwhile, Hector Gachan was a genuine contender despite stalling at #8 last week, but he ends up at #3 with "Electric Company". Two big hits make up the remaining numbers, with "The Heart Part 5" staying steady and "Tall Poppies" collapsing to #5.

We could have had more chaos in the top 5 though! I'm falling behind on album listening again but Tasman Keith's new LP jumps toward the top of the list of albums to try after hearing this. "TREAD LIGHT" is a truly stunning album closer which I'm still trying to grapple with, not helped by the fact that the lyrics on Genius are referring to the wrong song. The moment where he lets loose and sounds so despondent - understanding the content and his story - is one of the most gut-wrenching moments in music so far this year. Absolutely worth a listen if you haven't already, he has 4 entries with this one at #6.

It's hard to believe that we have not one, but two Aussie hip hop entries in the top 10. This time it's a change in pace with the more conventional "Whippin" by Steez Malase. However, labelling it conventional is completely ignoring the appeal that it has for me, perhaps picking up somewhat where "REDICLUS" left off by using some awesomely produced beats with some expertly woven rap flow. The Queenslander is new to the chart with this debuting at #9.

It has been four years since we've seen Calvin Harris debut on the chart, and precisely two weeks for 21 Savage. But alas, the two combine perfectly on the funky "New Money" - Calvin's 12th and 21's 26th entries respectively in at #33.

Genuine Fake is a cool band name. They are from Melbourne and this has a distinct Voidz vibe. "Bloodhound Elite" is their 1st at #43.

Debuting just below Jungle is "Jungle". If you're following my train of thought, it's the new Fred again.. single entering at #48 for his 3rd entry.

The Whigs have 6 previous entries but have been somewhat inactive for several years. Lead singer Parker Gispert has a 2nd solo album on the way, with "Golden Years" being one of those songs with that type of melody. Yes I'm a sucker for it, it's his 1st solo entry in at #67.

Classic artist not from Vancouver, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, have a second entry. "Wanderlust" is much more upbeat than their previous charter, this one is #78.

Leikeli47 is getting some critical credit for her new album. If "BITM" (a.k.a. "bitch I'm the man") is anything to go by, then fair enough, it's #81 for her 4th entry.

And closing things out, Jax Jones is back for her 3rd entry and MNEK has a 2nd entry with "Where Did You Go?" at #85. Yes, I couldn't resist, good a-c memes will never die.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 25/7/22
Edition No.663
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Far less chaotic this week, topped off by some stability at the top with Perfume Genius holding some considerable distance at #1 with "Photograph". Vince Staples is the next best in at #2, followed by Hector Gachan who has not given up on a top two placing just yet currently at #3. That might be more of a challenge for him next week though, with Tasman Keith making the predictable move up to #4 with "TREAD LIGHT", ahead of Kendrick Lamar who helps knock Yard Act out of the top 5.

Alrighty then. Willow has listened to a lot of The Strokes recently (sidenote: and perhaps hints of Silverchair and Muse on some of the heavier bits, anyone?), just like me in a way as I am preparing for a rad Tuesday night. And that has helped her defy the odds somewhat and (a) actually make the chart, and (b) do so as the highest debut of the week. Breaking the boundaries with song title stylising at least is "<maybe> it's my fault", her 1st entry at #31.

But of course the world is now proper topsy-turvy. It is notable that to date I find it quite difficult to pick a song that I genuinely would go out of my way to listen to from a certain Korean boyband. We can look at many examples of recent genre aping in the pop rock sphere as missing the mark too, so what do you get when the one of the members of said group tries something that comes off a strange redux of "Berzerk" by Eminem? A hit, obviously, as we have j-hope coming through with a song that I did not expect to slap as much as it does. "MORE" is quite fun, it's his 1st entry, and it's #34.

Not completely new to the chart is Brent Faiyaz who follows up a hit on the chart from early last year which still wound up on his recently released LP. "ALL MINE" is #47 for his 2nd entry.

This is turning out to be quite a mainstream list of debuts this week (and we are not done after this lol); not that that's a bad thing though because there's still plenty of variety. Case in point here, with the main single from Bad Bunny's album which hasn't turned out to be the biggest hit from it in the US, but has swiftly outpeaked the other song that I have recently charted it from it. "Moscow Mule" is #55 making for his 3rd charter.

Perth group Ghost Care have quickly chalked up their third entry here and they are becoming a band I'm increasingly following along with. "Part Time Living" slots in at #58.

As per aforementioned foreshadowing (are you allowed to put those two words together idk ?), we have a song that kind of felt like an unlikely hit initially but now completely makes sense. Steve Lacy is new to the chart as a credited artist but he's been on so many things before that I'm already relatively familiar with him (i.e. aforementioned Brent Faiyaz song from last year!). "Bad Habit" is #70.

When I first heard this the Friday before last I immediately liked it, and also thought that it would land on Hijinx's chart somewhere. Sure enough the next day he did chart it, and now I am doing so too. Newbie Carla Wehbe is #79 with "is forever off the table?".

And we still weren't done with the mainstream hits, if you can label this as such. I love "Up" by Cardi B, and I might be one of the only people on the planet who thinks it's her best song; meanwhile, this one kind of ticks some of the same boxes without doing it at the same level. Of course "Hot Shit" has the problem straight off the bat that it could be confused for the similarly titled and superior Megan Thee Stallion song which doesn't help, but more importantly it could also do without the features as Cardi (7th entry) clearly contributes more than Kanye West (34th) and Lil Durk (2nd) combined. Kanye in fact has his first entry in three years, with his recent chart history (or lack thereof) being far less of a surprise to me than his actual inclusion here. Anyway, it's far from perfect but it's a bop nonetheless, closing out the week at #89.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 1/8/22
Edition No.664
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Perfume Genius has some clear air at #1 with "Photograph" celebrating a 3rd week. Vince Staples keeps some impressive stability, holding up #2 with "ROSE STREET" ahead of a rise for Tasman Keith to #3 who proves the biggest threat to the status quo. This sees Hector Gachan slot down to fourth place, ahead of Kendrick Lamar who holds Steez Malase at bay for now.

Not a substantive collection of new arrivals this week, but it was topped by two Perth bands who have both seen chart success here before. First up is Great Gable who have been a bit hit and miss since their debut album, but do well with "Sidewalk" in for a 5th entry at #46.

Up next, Methyl Ethel build on their seriously impressive entry count with their new single "Talk Louder". It's their 15th to date at #64.

Some lovely quirky songwriting that sounded somewhat Australian to my ears, Mel Parsons is actually from across the ditch. "Tired of Being You" is a cut from her 5th album, a 1st entry in at #77.

It was quite difficult to find much information about the next artist as this is their inaugural release. Beth and Blue are a project combining SPOOKYLAND and Babitha, neither of which I had previously heard of, but are apparently engaged to one another which is neat. "I Love You" is a bit lengthy but it's worth the effort, in at #80.

After a big 2020 on the chart, we haven't seen much of Sorry, so it's great to have them back. "Let the Lights On" is a 6th entry at #87.

And closing things out is another Brent Faiyaz track. Mark Grondin mentioned this had an Isaiah Rashad vibe, and I definitely hear "Don't Shoot" in particular. "FYTB" (or "fuck you talking 'bout") is #89 for his 3rd and Joony's 1st entries respectively.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 8/8/22
Edition No.665
Songs retire at 75 weeks

A transitional week for seemingly everywhere except top spot, with "Photograph" still the top dog for a 4th week. Tasman Keith moves up a spot to #2 with Sputnik Sweetheart racing up to #3. This pushes Vince Staples down a couple spots to #4 with Maxïmo Park jumping into the top 5 at #5.

Trying to lock in what seemed like a sure thing for my highest debut this week by tweeting about it was in hindsight not my smartest move. Primarily because I had not heard this particular song at the time of said tweet, and it has very quickly taken that mantle ever since doing so. Bad//Dreems are not a band I've ever dedicated huge amounts of time towards but this new single scratches one hell of an itch. It's sort of King Gizzard meets Children Collide's "Cherries" if it was all done within a pub rock lens. Plus if there are more country Victorian towns soon to be serenaded by this **checks notes** Adelaide band, yep, I have no issue. "Mansfield 6.0" makes me want to dance on the West Gate and have a beer, debuting at #7 for their 2nd entry.

This seems like a cross section of many different roots and folk sounds that I've heard so many times and passed on within the Australian music landscape. However The Meltdown aren't just named after my 5th(?) Ocean Alley song, they're also rather good at what they do. "Tell You Not To Worry" is bluesy balladry done very well, in at #10 for their inaugural entry.

...and this was the song that inspired said tweet because I seriously thought it was destined for top 10, maybe even top 5... flop. But in any case "Teddy" by Teenage Dads in its messy way is so damn catchy, in at #11 for their 3rd entry.

Da quen b is back, Beyoncé manages two entries this week. "CHURCH GIRL" is #42 and well-established chart hit "BREAK MY SOUL" enters at #78.

In amongst that it's a second entry for Djo, with the Queen-sounding "Gloom" at #49.

Billie Eilish closes things off this week, following up her album last year which you all know I quite liked. "TV" is her 18th entry at #89.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 15/8/22
Edition No.666
Songs retire at 75 weeks

Time to throw on Salmon Hater, it's the chart number of the beast!!! We have a new number one to mark the occasion, by way of Sputnik Sweetheart who take it out with "Lindy Hop". Sadly jinx beat me to the obvious Simpsons reference but it's still worth bringing up indirectly. Tasman Keith is a little unfortunate to settle for the #2 spot with "TREAD LIGHT" holding firm; and it's an all-Aussie top 3 (represented by three different states/territories, but in a way, five ) with Bad//Dreems pushing up to #3. Maxïmo Park continue to impress up to #4, with last week's #1 from Perfume Genius plummetting all the way to #5.

I would say that it's no coincidence Royel Otis are a duo like Royal Blood, except that the band name comes from both of their own names. "Motels" has a lovely chorus in particular, in for their 1st entry at #37.

Arkansas singer Malik Flint goes by the name of bLAck pARty. He is new to the chart with "I Love You More Than You Know", which is not a hot mashup of Beth and Blue's and Axwell Λ Ingrosso's songs. Label mate Childish Gambino scores a 7th entry here as the song comes in at #47.

The Nigo album is way better than I gave it credit for initially. "Functional Addict" is a 16th entry for Pharrell Williams, a 3rd for Gunna, and a 5th for Nigo himself in at #49.

Unsurprisingly, Beyoncé gets another entry from her album as I've been listening to that too quite a bit. "ALIEN SUPERSTAR" is #58 for a 15th entry.

The Rions are back for a 3rd song to chart here, with one in each of the past three years. "Anakin" is #60.

Meanwhile... can someone on this forum please help me with what this Stella Donnelly song sounds like??? I HAD IT earlier this week and then I forgot to write it down, and all I can come up with is "Pick Up Your Tricks" by Amy Meredith which isn't close enough to what I thought of initially. "How Was Your Day?" is her 9th entry at #63.

Your Old Droog is technically American but he was born in Ukraine which is cool. He is new here with "The Return of Sasquatch" at #68, produced by Madlib who scores an 18th charting track as a result.

Jessie Ware has just her 2nd entry which seems a little harsh given I usually enjoy what I hear. "Free Yourself" is #72.

A band that keep quietly plugging away on the chart is The Buoys. 5th entry "Red Flags" is #84.

And closing things out, Just A Gent with title track from the recent album "Planet Oasis" at #88 for a 3rd charter.

Some names I haven't seen in a while (like Augie March)!

Don't think we share a single song in common between our charts
IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 22/8/22
Edition No.667
Songs retire at 75 weeks

In keeping with the general stability of the chart most weeks, Sputnik Sweetheart celebrate a 2nd week at the top with "Lindy Hop". Tasman Keith stays at #2 ahead of Maxïmo Park who jump ahead of Bad//Dreems. Vince Staples is back in the top 5, again demonstrating some impressive longevity with "ROSE STREET".

It's seemingly the band of the moment, Sputnik Sweetheart, who easily score the top debut of the week. "Heavenly" is their 2nd entry at #15.

I do hear a lot of "Sacrilege" in this new Yeah Yeah Yeahs track but this does sound like the most Suits-core thing I've heard in a long time (maybe except for "I Ain't Worried" lol). "Burning" is #45 for their 8th entry to date.

This Nigo LP is the album that keeps on giving. The idea of a collaboration album between A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator was was apparently a chance a few years ago but was shelved. I assume this was an offcut from those sessions and that of course Nigo had some input on the production. "Lost and Found Freestyle 2019" is #52 for A$AP's 23rd, Tyler's 13th, and Nigo's 6th entries thus far.

Not in fact by the character in the TV show New Girl, Jess Day is from Adelaide and has been putting out songs for a few years or so. "Seven" or "say a ven" is #57 for her 1st entry.

I'm copying and pasting this song title because it's such a pain in the bum to type. "I Promise That I'll Try To Give You All My Love" is the latest single from Sunbeam Sound Machine, back in the chart at #64 for a 6th entry.

i... don't know where to start

The J4 EP is pretty cool and "Medicine" is their 3rd entry, in at #88.

Looking forward to seeing The Killers in December. I have little doubt that "boy" is more than just good timing, but for now it's an 11th entry at #92.

And a song that came up on the radio the other day and I remembered it from having heard it a number of months before. Mia Wray is #95 wrapping up the week for a debut entry with "Rerun".

Edition No.668
Songs retire at 75 weeks

At the top we have a Maxïmo Park sandwich with Sputnik Sweetheart bread, a joke I've surely made on this chart before but not with the aforementioned combination of artists. Indeed, it is at least accurate, as "Lindy Hop" lasts a third week at #1 ahead of a move to #2 for "Great Art", which has consistently moved one spot up each week for a month now. And "Heavenly" becomes the Canberra band's 2nd song in the top 3, ahead of Bad//Dreems steady at #4 and Tasman Keith down to #5.

aww... I loved this pretty instantly. Big Scary have a 4th entry at #19 with "Real Love".

This has some really unique vocals and it has grown on me heaps in the later parts of this week. Katy J Pearson is new to the chart at #30 with "Float".

I am guessing this band has listened to Joy Division before. Working Men's Club are a post punk revival band, and bears shit in the woods. And "Cut" is #35 for their 1st entry.

Will I get around to listening to the Joey Bada$$ album in full? Who knows. "Head High" is good though in at #51 for an 8th entry.

Dylan Fraser is from a town in Scotland roughly halfway between Glasgow and Edinburgh. "It Took A Lot To Get To This" doesn't seem to be about though which is a shame. It's #56 for his 1st entry.

Kiwi Marlon Williams scores another entry, this time it's "Easy Does It" for this 3rd at #64.

And Noah Dillon has missed out a couple times at least, so now he finally gets a 2nd with "I C.A.N.T" at #78.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 5/9/22
Edition No.669
Songs retire at 75 weeks

The top two is a match made in heaven... well, Canberra. Sputnik Sweetheart occupy the top two spots on the chart as "Heavenly" does the unthinkable to knock off the otherwise unlucky "Lindy Hop". Royel Otis rocket up to #3 with "Motels" but may not find things as easy next week. Maxïmo Park are again a case of other songs getting stronger rather than "Great Art" getting significantly weaker, alas they are down to #4. And Bad//Dreems slip to #5 despite holding off strong competition not far below them.

Italians living in London kick things off this week, and no I'm not referring to the collab single we're all anticipating from Gianluca Scamacca and Angelo Ogbonna at some point. Palmaria provide one of the five debuts this week that contain non-English lyrics, which has to be some kind of record. "Sunflower" is #30 for a first entry.

The new Undercover Dream Lovers tune kicks off almost like 2003 EOY banger "Meet Me By the Water" by Saturday Looks Good to Me but then very much goes into familiar synthy territory. "Can't You Just See" is #42 for a 4th entry.

Laura Jean has been dropping albums for over a decade and a half at this point now, and from my quick research she does seem to be rather eclectic. "Too Much To Do" is a debut entry at #44.

Fast approaching chart regular status is Bad Bunny which is rather scary. 4th entry at #49 is titled "Ojitos Lindos" which translates to "pretty eyes". Colombian duo Bomba Estéreo feature for their 1st entry.

This came back into my consciousness somewhat before hearing the album and remembering I liked it, but was then reinforced by later jumping into the album anyway. I'm talking about The Chats who sound a bit more compelling on studio recordings than at least when they performed this live - although I will admit I did enjoy their set more than other members of my family. "6L GTR" is #52 for a 3rd entry.

Inducted into the 10 entries club is Offset, as Baby Keem-produced "54321" is #53.

Two Nigo album tracks chart near one another (coincidence) which leaves just three on the album that haven't and likely won't. "Want It Bad" at #58 has a pretty cool synth and "Heavy" at #70 is the better of the two drill tracks on the album. It leaves Kid Cudi with 12 entries, Lil Uzi Vert with 8, and Nigo with 7.

Mattyeux follows up with another chart entry fairly soon. "Break Up Diaries" is his second in at #73.

This comes from an album that I do need to get to, even though I did get around to a truckload this past week that I had been putting off. I'm talking about King Stingray, who are in with 4th entry "Raypirri" at #74.

More rambling post punk nonsense is expected from Dry Cleaning with a new album on the way. "Anna Calls From the Arctic" is a 4th entry as well, at #77.

So. many. notes. KAYTRANADA (6th) and Anderson .Paak (14th) team up after having done so on this chart in the past. "Twin Flame" is #81.

PUP come up with one of the funnier song titles of the year and it's quite an amusing song concept too. From their latest LP, "PUPTHEBAND Inc. Is Filing For Bankruptcy" is #85 for a 7th entry.

What to say on this other than we're still waiting for that Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs album, and I feel that Orlando has neither followed up "Trouble" sufficiently since then or has been able to break through commercially in any meaningful way. And then you get a song like "B.O.T.A. (Baddest Of Them All)", which really to me is just a neat dance track, and it just makes me wonder how much more we could be getting. Anywho. It's a debut entry for both Eliza Rose and Interplanetary Criminal, in at #91.

Sidney is in fact from Melbourne. "NICE GUY" is a debut entry at #94.

Closing out we have a previously unreleased track from Stereolab which I believe was from the same sessions which yielded #37 hit on my 1995 EOY list "Sadistic". In any case, some 27 years later (yes reminder that I'm now a year older as well) we have "Robot Riot". It's their 1st entry at least here, and it's #96.

Edition No.670
Songs retire at 75 weeks

After I spent a week on holiday, a lot of relatively fresh songs have made some big jumps. Not necessarily saying it was a coincidence, but I did listen to a pretty decent chunk of music as a result of having some well-earned time off. None of that has troubled the top three though which remains intact, as "Heavenly" outlasts "Lindy Hop" for the second consecutive week in which Sputnik Sweetheart have established their dominance. Royel Otis remain at #3 as a major challenger next week with "Motels". However, I simply cannot stop listening to "Moscow Mule" by Bad Bunny and it pushes its way up to #4. I also could not get enough of the new Dry Cleaning track this week, and as such "Anna Calls From the Arctic" rockets up 72 places to #5.

I knocked off 18 albums from my to-do list the week before last which has resulted in some potentially old songs (but still from 2022 of course) making it. Melody's Echo Chamber kicks that off with 4th entry "Where the Water Clears the Illusion" at #19.

I think I somewhat force-fed myself the new track from The National without having huge expectations. However, it turns out that it's quite a lovely tune and the contribution from Bon Iver is welcome too. For an 11th and 2nd entry respectively, "Weird Goodbyes" is in at #27.

Brent Faiyaz scores a 4th entry (overall and from this album) despite the album not doing it for me overall. "ANGEL" is far from filler though in at #30.

Bloc Party have taken some interesting detours over the years and this is quite fascinating. "The Peace Offering" reaches for something huge and perhaps doesn't quite get there, but it's #37 for a deserved 7th entry overall.

The Lykke Li album might be difficult to pronounce but it is full of lovely ballads. 6th entry "OVER" is #40.

There was quite a lot of horoscope bollocks in the Steve Lacy album but "Buttons" is easily a standout. It's his 2nd entry in at #47.

If you want a hip hop tune that promises to be an absolute banger at the start but then kind of fizzles out slightly, look no further than "BLACK PEARLS". It's a 6th entry for EARTHGANG and a 3rd for Baby Tate, debuting at #58.

The Bob Vylan album is rad etc., "Take That" is their 2nd entry at #61.

During the week I tweeted positively about "Post Love" from the new Sunflower Bean album in that it reminded me of a certain CHVRCHES song. Turns out I meant it, as it debuts for their 9th entry at #79.

I wasn't quite sure what to do with this the week before, but The Beefs do end up debuting at #85 with first entry "In the Blood".

And Interpol close things out with 11th entry "Mr. Credit" at #87.

IRELANDER'S HOT 100 - Mon 19/9/22
Edition No.671
Songs retire at 75 weeks

I have a new keyboard so let's see if I make any typos and fail to notice. We don't have a new number one though, with Sputnik Sweetheart still occupying the same two positions at the summit. Royel Otis hold steady above rises for Dry Cleaning and The National.

Stuart St. Vincent is no relation to Anne Clark but also shares the distinction of, having made this chart before I guess. Anyway he goes by the name of DSCOSTU which I have no idea how to pronounce with any confidence. "Est Laa" is #27 for his 1st and also the same for featured duo Fancy Colors.

This absolute Trojan horse of a track comes courtesy of Teriyaki Boyz, but if you didn't know already, it's worth pointing out that the song is on the new Nigo album. Why have I rebelled against what the internet says and have refused to credit Nigo directly? Well it's because he is one-fifth of the aforementioned group already, and is only credited as such because of the fact that the album is curated by him specifically. While it's possible the music industry may one day put me in crediting jail for continually refusing to abide, "Morë Tonight" is #30 for the 1st entry for Teriyaki Boyz.

Meanwhile, this relatively recent country hit sounds like a mix between Jason Isbell and 2006-era Pearl Jam, or at least the downtrodden riff does in regards to the latter. Ending Drake's run on top of my IPAC is Oklahoma's own Zach Bryan at #34, and it's with his 1st entry "Something in the Orange".

Okay, now we are back to crediting artists with an actual chart history. Four artists to be more accurate, because this is from the Danger Mouse (4th entry) and Black Thought (5th) album, and features A$AP Rocky (24th) and Run The Jewels (20th, and yes it does include both of them). As such, "Strangers" is #39.

The Lykke Li album has some real gems on it. 7th entry "5D" is one of them at #42.

And just like that, Zella Day is up to 3 entries. "Mushroom Punch" at #48.

Colour me surprised, but Dean Lewis has another entry. "How Do I Say Goodbye" is his second in that regard, but #56 on the chart.

I don't really like seafood much with prawns and some fish being the exception, and in particular oysters are not my bag baby. However, Royel Otis are increasingly my bag baby, as 2nd entry "Oysters in My Pocket" sounds unsanitary but it does come in at #64.

Blood Orange has been on a run of entries as the credited or second nominated artist lately, most recently and notably with Wet on "Bound" last year. "Jesus Freak Lighter" is a 5th entry though all on his own at #nice.

Bob Vylan have two entries following up here this week. Taking the duo up to four in total, "Drug War" is #70 and "Wicked & Bad" inserts itself at #98.

Many artists this week coming in with entry totals in the single digits. Surf Curse have a 2nd at #78 with "Self Portrait".

I do keep forgetting that Panama are made up of former members of The Dirty Secrets and Operator Please, even though this is clearly a case of the vocalist co
