    Squarepusher pushes all aside to score a second number one on this chart, some eighteen years after the first (My Red Hot Car, in 2001) - and his climb to the top is matched only by the slow-burning Murder Capital (#10, +11)... Four new tracks include Graham Coxon's wistful ode from the soundtrack of the very fine End of the F***ing World (#33) and a first single in zonks for one of his influences, Wire (#31)... The lowdown:

    • 33 NE 33 01 She Knows – Graham Coxon - disappointing effort (at least, for me personally).

      • I reckon it's okay - it fits perfectly with the dark, downbeat nature of the TV series and reminds me a tad of the great Wreckless Eric.

        Decent movement anticipated for the track this week, anyways...

        • Squarepusher holds on to collect this year's Christmas chart-topper - although 'Agnes' is proving a useful name for a Top Five berth... Sometime Savage Jehnny Beth registers the biggest climb (#6, +22), with good moves also recorded for Pixies (#14, +12), Graham Coxon (#23, +10) and Tame Impala (#26, +10)... There are six new tracks on the Top 40, headed up by Moses Boyd's hypnotic Stranger Than Fiction (#30)... A hearty 'Season's Greetings' to one and all:

            • Squarepusher ends the decade at the top... Only two new entries - Cornershop (#21) and Biig Piig (#39) - but a clutch of significant climbs, topped by Moses Boyd (#10, +20): Wire (#9, +15), Pan Amsterdam (#17, +10) and Hanni El Khatib & Frank Leone (#18, +17) also rack up those places... The chart of 2019 will follow over the next week or so, but, in the meantime, a happy 2020 to all:

                • Savages front woman Jehnny Beth vaults into the top spot to start the year... Orielles achieve their best-ever chart position with CDOJ after some two months on the Top 40 (#4)... Cornershop (#7, +14) and Hanni & Frank (#8, +10) are the major climbers this week... Four new entries include two cuts held over from 2019 - Prophets Of Rage (#16) and Mark Lanegan (#23) - plus newer tracks from Richard Dawson (#26) and The Illicits (#31)... Girl Band make an unexpected return (#33) - perhaps offering some clues regarding the 2019 chart of the year, which will make its appearance over the next couple of days... The gen:

                    • At last, the performance chart for 2019! It was a triumph, of course, for Girl Band who returned to score their second and third number ones here with the two tracks that lead the way: a further single from The Talkies, Salmon of Knowledge, is due to chart shortly... Also scoring more than one entry on the year-end survey were: Chali 2na & Krafty Kuts (#4, #21), Show Me The Body (#5, #47), Gruff Rhys (#22, #23), The Comet Is Coming (#25, #60), Karen O & Danger Mouse (#30, #69), Thom Yorke (#31, #39), Jehnny Beth (#32, #46), Squid (#38, #51), slowthai (#48, #65), Black Country, New Road (#53, #73) and black midi (#56, #67)... The next regular Top 40 should emerge on Friday... The year's stats:

                        the rest is also formidable, especially Agnes Obel and Lucy Rose ones

                          • Jehnny Beth hangs onto number one by the skin of her - or 'his' - teeth... Former Screaming Tree Mark Lanegan enjoys the best climb of the week (#6, +17), with Prophets Of Rage (#5, +11) and The Illicits (#16, +15) also making good ground... There are four new entries, all from fairly familiar names: the vast number of tracks dropping suggests that there'll be a few more next week... The skinny:

                              • Just a cigarette paper between Moses and Jehnny, but the latter holds out for a third week on top... No change for four of the Top Five, but three significant climbs into the Top Ten, with black midi (#9, +18), Kim Gordon (#10, +14) and Floating Points (#8, +12) all making good headway... No fewer than ten new cuts are led by 2019 champs Girl Band (#11), who chase a third chart-topper from their The Talkies album... Now read on:

Boy Azooga's jump (#17, +15) is the week's best, with good moves also for Jon Hopkins (#11, +11), Hinds (#21, +13) and Roisin Murphy (#24, +12)... MYD lead six newcomers with their third Top 40 entry in six months (#26)... Those figures:

                                        • 1/2/20 (A day early while I'm on my travels...) An unlikely straight swap sees black midi knock Moses Boyd from number one, leaving Girl Band, Mark Lanegan and Kim Gordon in their wake... New York post-punkers Bambara have the week's biggest climb (#19, +14), with Iowa legends Slipknot close behind (#20, +12)... The latest frenetic piece from Anna Meredith is the highest of five new entries (#23), the remainder of the new cuts strongly featuring female vocalists... Here's the list:

                                            • God alone knows what's up with the fonts on here - I seem to get something different depending whether I'm on laptop, iPhone, etc.

                                              New chart imminent...

                                              • 8/2/20 No third consecutive chart-topper from Girl Band's The Talkies it would seem, as black midi hold the fort for a second week... Grandaddy's moving paean looks a strong bet to dethrone them (#9), this track heading five further new cuts including EOB (#22) and finally King Nun, after many weeks of release (#32)... Anna Meredith storms into the Top Five (#5, +18), with good moves also recorded for Sam Lee & Liz Fraser (#13, +16) and Juniore (#23, +10)... The SP:
