  • FEISTY Alternative Singles Chart: 30 January 2020

    The British music publication FEISTY has launched its own singles chart. The FEISTY Alternative Singles Chart, as it's called, features mostly alternative/indie artists, with some less mainstream pop and rock as well. It's being published every Thursday. It's described as follows on the website:

    The FEISTY Alternative Singles Chart is a weekly countdown of today’s best new music, featuring the hottest new bands and projects from around the world.

    The chart is compiled by the FEISTY team in a distinctive Top 40 format and updated every Thursday on the FEISTY website.

    Originally inspired by the golden age of the Official Chart Company’s UK Indie Chart, the FEISTY Alternative Singles Chart gathers essential new alternative, indie, pop and rock, from familiar names and new faces alike.

    We hope that the chart acts as not only a fun way to showcase new releases, but also as a snapshot of what’s trending and fresh in music today.
    The chart is an experimental alternative to a regular new music type feature, so it's unclear how long it'll keep going. The first chart went up today and it looks really pretty on the website!

    Edit: FEISTY are moving away from the chart format following the 6 February 2020 chart. There'll still be a weekly feature with the same sort of music, however, the format of which is yet to be confirmed. This thread exists as an archive of the brief singles chart run.

      It looks like a great chart, thanks for posting. I've bookmarked the website too.

      There's an Alternative Chart posted each week which is based on airplay and is compiled by one of UKMIx's posters. The chart you've posted is a welcome addition alongside the other chart.

      https://www.ukmix.org/showthread.php...y-Chart/page18

      Please keep posting the chart, I'll be giving the playlist a listen each week.

                      Sorry that I was a little bit late posting this over here!

                      Some good news though - the chart's been expanded to 50 songs. The website explains: "Just three editions in, we’ve decided that limiting it – and therefore the accompanying new music playlist – to 40 singles is too hard, so we’ve added an extra 10 spots so we can hype even more fresh tracks in the future."

                      Tame Impala became the first artist to hold the #1 spot on the 16/01 chart. Grimes climbed to #2. The highest new entry was U.S. Girls at #3, and the highest new entry from a British artist was The Big Moon's Barcelona at #6.

                      The website has the pretty presentation, see the link below.

                              This week's singles chart is here! La Roux enters at number-one, ending Tame Impala's three-week run at the top of the chart. Tennis, Blossoms and Sorry also enter in the top ten. Mitski, Cage the Elephant and Little Dragon are other major names among the 30 new entries. FEISTY also notes in the write-up that Eefje de Visser is the first artist to make the chart singing in a language other than English (Dutch).

                              FEISTY has expanded the chart again, stating: "We’ve expanded the chart to 60 songs from this week onwards, reflecting how hard it’s been for us to limit ourselves to 50 spots each week."

                              Here is the full chart page, which this data is taken from. You can click on the track titles to open individual songs in Spotify, which is useful for the bubbling under section, which isn't included on the playlist.

                                FEISTY has added a More New Music section to the chart from this week also, which works like a bubbling under chart, listing new singles that didn't make the cut.

                                Alex the Astronaut - I Think You're Great
                                APRE - Your Heart's Like a Jungle
                                Austra - Risk It
                                BlackWaters - Two Time Lover
                                Bonander - Martha
                                Brooke Bentham - Control
                                Destroy Boys - Fences
                                The Gallerys - You're a Dreamer
                                The Hanged Man - Hasche
                                HMLTD - Blank Slate
                                Julia Bardo - I Wanna Feel Love
                                Las Kellies - Closer
                                The Lathums - Fight On
                                Lié - Drowning in Piss
                                Marsicans - Can I Stay Here Forever (Pt. II)
                                St. South - Does Your Brain Ever Get This Loud?
                                TOPS - I Feel Alive

                                  While I think that this chart is a great idea, a few things don't really work for me. I don't really see the point in presenting this in a chart format if ~40% of the tracks on the chart is new week-on-week. And I also think that presenting 77 tracks in a week does a worse job of showcasing what you 'have' to hear than a 40 or 50 size playlist with maybe a 20% week-on-week change at most. As of now it feels a bit like "here's a dozen (or 4) indie tracks released recently, and half of these will be replaced in a week or two so maybe don't bother". Of course if you listen to all of the new tracks in a week some of them will stick, but it's hard to get 'invested' into new music if your only point of reference 'forgets' about it in a week or 2 because they want to showcase a few dozens newer tracks.

                                      thank you for remind me

                                      btw. i predict that the chart will expand in the next few weeks at least to the top 75
                                      personally, my song of the week is 26 (NE) Cuffed Up - French Exit

                                          The latest chart states: "Next week we'll be shifting the style of our new music content away from the Alternative Singles Chart format we've been experimenting with since the start of 2020, but don't worry, we'll be picking out just as much great new music every week."

                                          The exact format of the successor is yet to be revealed but it's likely to be a more traditional playlist type feature. I'll keep sharing it here in whichever forum is most relevant!

                                          As for the current chart, there were 16 new entries, with La Roux still at the top. Hinds entered highest at No. 8 and The Mysterines, Hazel English and The Magic Gang all made the top 20.
