  • Jah's Weekly Top 40

    I started compiling this a little while back as a means to remember the titles of the dozens of new tracks and artists I've been hearing (with a view to download/buy), while keeping them all in one convenient place. Blame the march of time. Anyways - here are the first two for October, with the next to appear at the weekend:

                        Today's my birthday, but yet another sad day for music with the passing announced of Leonard Cohen, whose You Want it Darker - the title cut from his final album - is a breaker this week, set to enter next time out. Meanwhile, another of 2016's major casualties, David Bowie, has a double-header debuting at #30. Radiohead's domination is over for now, however, with Present Tense relinquishing the top slot and Identikit finally dropping out after four months. Strong upward movement this week from top London bands The Duke Spirit (+18) and relative newcomers Francobollo (+17)...

                              Fantastic number one! I really love Agnes' current album, with "Golden Green" being one of my favorite songs there

                                New chart tomorrow - will Agnes hold on to the top spot?

                                      Despite strong opposition from some of last week's big movers, Agnes holds onto the number one position for a second week. This week's biggest climbers are Bowie at #13 (+17 places) and Parisien duo Justice at #24 (+16). The late Laughing Lennie grabs the highest-placed new entry at #28...

                                              Ohhh very nice to hear that "Familiar" is one of your faves as well on the album. Love that song!

                                              As for this week, i obviously like to see Agnes spending another week at #1.
                                              Also good debut for Leonard Cohen. 2016 has been an awful year when it comes to music legends...

                                                It has indeed - a fairly depressing year all round, some might say... Good to see Agnes O holding steady in your singles/albums listings too, however. (I like the performance certifications, too - nice idea, that.)

                                                New Top 40 on its way...

                                                  'Ethereal' is the watchword as the shimmering neo-classical stylings of Agnes Obel give way to the arch, alternative dream-pop of The Duke Spirit at number one. (Meanwhile, those new champions of the glamorous and grotesque, Francobollo twitch curtains at number three.) At #16, Coldcut and Roots Manuva become only the third act since the chart re-animated in August to boast a Top 20 entry: Radiohead (#15 with Present Tense - 15/10/16) and Pixies (#18 with Tenement Song - 10/9/16) were the others. The curious Soft Hair have the week's biggest climber at #24. Anyway, enough musing and blather - here's the chart...

                                                    these two are great.
                                                    She Drew The Gun's song also has to climb a few positions up the chart

                                                        Thanks, glad to hear you like that

                                                        Unfortunately i haven't got the time to check out some stuff from your charts, but nice to see that track by Bon Iver entering

                                                            Something of a London hat-trick at the top of the pile this week - if one employs a little licence as regards ex-pat Swedes Francobollo, now based in the capital: The Duke Spirit and fast-rising Coldcut/Roots Manuva are all London natives, of course. As suggested, Bon Iver claims the biggest upward move at #20 (+18), with all of last week's five new entries boasting climbs of ten places or more. (Dadaist punk survivors The Cravats also jump thirteen places with the first chart run for singer The Shend since he fronted The Very Things almost thirty years ago.) Hidden Orchestra's haunting Wingbeats is this week's highest entry at #29. Okay, here we go...
