Welcome back Marcthemike!
But from now on also here.
For how long?
(First time was really short)
What do you think of it?
GREAT!
Best ones from Alt-J (Hunger), Death from above, Alvvays, Racing glaciers and Dry the river (Everlasting)
and two from last year Jungle (the Heat # 66 on my Year end chart of 2013) and
Lonely the brave (sadly missing from).
Thank you for introducing me Southern - 8-)

Finally (another) list with some more rock and alternative music.

Some real great songs in there: Magnus, Oscar And The Wolf, Dry The River, Racing GlacIers, Lonely The Brave, also some others, and especially SOUTHERN!

On the other hand, nowadays Lana del Rey doesn't do it for me anymore, never can really get into Alt-J, that Alvvays-song didn't do much for me either and Jungle isn't my thing neither.

Hi Blondini, I like my music a bit edgy, a bit stinging like a nettle, but Nettle List, did't sound too well. :P

I know i'm late. At the first listen, I wasn't in to it, but it grew on me. And about Childhood, I wouldn't count them out completely.

Great Chart! 4 out of Top 10 is in my Top 10 as well. The War On Drugs was No.2 hit in my Chart earlier this year.
Nice to see Jamie T entering your Chart at 12. So perhaps we will share the same No.1 again next week. :wink:
I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

All new entries great

Royal blood are better, but since i have that rule - every week new # 1 - there's no reason that
Ryan Adams song, which is btw good, not reaching top spot on your chart.

Moonface, She keeps bees and Amber run entries great,
but a little depressive, don't you think?
Inochine - familiar name in my memory, heard them a few times in the mid 80's, (they're still around) :o
They were too soft for my taste back then (i was into noise/punk/industrial), not bad with this one.

Thanx for your replies! Era, you should check out Oscar & The Wolf and this week's new entry HAERTS. Navi, if you know Indochine and heard them back in the eighties, you're already around for quite some time too ;) (I'm 46 myself, so I can say this). My top 2 is the same as last week, but we have some great new songs too further on:

Great chart again this week.
Last time I was listening to Cage The Elephant was in 2011. "Thank You, Happy Birthday" was quite a lovely stuff. Reminded me of classic "Pixies" in some places. So i'm looking forward to hear their new work.

Bingo :lol: ( :( :evil: )
Like all your new entries, but some of them more,
and these are Amber run (heard them for the first time while they called themselves just Amber)
and Laura Palmer (heard them today for the first time - very good)

Agree with Ralphy on new entries,
actually all new entries good,
except, i can get into Lily and Madelaine, despite being
constantly promoted on my favorite internet radio (amazing radio).
