Our highest entry this week, isn't an official single (yet), but Mitski made with 'A Pearl' one of the best songs of the year. At the top we change one androgynous voice for another. Further on: two dutch bands enter with De Staat and Indian Askin. We welcome them together with Marissa Nadler, Santigold, Adrianne Lenker, Tiny Ruins, Donny McCaslin and Drenge.
Emma Louise's ''Mexico'' is a nice exploration and an interesting idea (to get her own voice slowed down). De Staat's song is not as good as their biggest hits. ''Run The Road'' feels underwhelming to me.
After one week, Whispering Sons looses the pole position to Tomberlin. De Staat is this week's fastest climber and IDLES, who made the punk album of the year, celebrate with their third entry. Discover all the new ones below.
A new week, a new number one: boygenius. Somewhere at the bottom of the list, one of it's members also enters: Phoebe Bridgers. Soccer Mommy deserved a least one extra week with her live show in Ghent and also her support conquers a spot. Other new ones are Sugarplum Fairies (with their new single), BC Camplight, Emma Ruth Rundle and Eliza Shaddad.
No we're not dead yet. But last week was not worth sharing. Only Lana Del Rey and Exploded View made it to the list and we had better things to do in Paris than sharing this. This week, we make up for it with not only ten (10!) new entries, but also a new number one. Highest new entry is by Japanese House, a band that keeps charming us. Completely new is ESINAM, never before this flutist/ singer made it in the list and for many of you, this will be a first acquintance. In her tracks follow J Mascis, Francis, Mantra, Broken Social Scene, Rhye, BADBADNOTGOOD, Meadowlake and Laura Gibson.
