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.

Mitski - A Pearl

De Staat - KITTY KITTY

Marissa Nadler - Blue Vapor

Santigold - Run The Road

Indian Askin - I Know How To Party

Adrianne Lenker - Cradle

Tiny Ruins - How Much

Donny McCaslin - Club Kidd

Drenge - Before The War Begins

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.

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.

Sugarplum Fairies - Dedeaux Fields

BC Camplight - I'm Desperate

Eliza Shaddad - This Is My Cue

Phoebe Bridgers - Scott Street

Brooke Bentham - Out Of My Mind

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.

Image



ESINAM - Birds Fly Under This Heavy Sky

J Mascis - Everything She Said

Francis - Wild Heart

Mantra - Smede

Broken Social Scene - Old Dead Young

Rhye - Hymn

BADBADNOTGOOD - Tired ft. Little Dragon

Meadowlake - Go

Laura Gibson - Tenderness

SINAM - Birds Fly Under This Heavy Sky - I appreciate the quality
Rhye - Hymn - a little bit underwhelming by Rhye's standards
