2016 album by black teen metal band that built up YT support since they were little kids, i had been following them on Twitter but didn't know they'd released anything till a doc about them was on TV. They had a 5-album Sony deal but extricated themselves from it. Album itself is too generic.

1 14 Field Music - Count It Up
AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (2 weeks; PEAK)

Like Talking Heads if they crossed with Devo.

2 NE Courtney Act - Kaleidoscope VIDEO
Great pop song - not unlike Katy Perry when she still knew what a melody was. Aus drag act currently on UK's Celebrity Big Brother and formerly of RuPaul's Drag Race.

3 NE Simple Minds - The Signal and The Noise AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
Much better than single Magic.

6 2 Bjork - Arisen My Senses (4 weeks; peak #2)

8 4 Little Mix - Nothing Else Matters (9 weeks; peak #4)

11 NE Charlotte Gainsbourg - I'm A Lie VIDEO
Yet another video in quick succession! :o

12 NE LPX - Bolt In The Blue LYRIC VIDEO
13 8 Blanche - City Lights (16 weeks; peak #1)

4 NE Mono - Requiem For Hell SPOTIFY
5 NE Imogen Heap - I Megaphone / iMegaphone SPOTIFY
Her 1998 debut. I think it's the first time i've heard it in full. Not sure of the actual title as both seem to be used (I Megaphone on CD, iMegaphone as reference in later years).

1 14 Field Music - Count It Up
I like the song, but to me it sounded a bit demo-ish (drums), even by my own standards.

11 NE Charlotte Gainsbourg - I'm A Lie
Charlotte really invested a lot in her new era.

12 NE LPX - Bolt In The Blue
I forgot about LPX since ''Tightrope'' but this one is really good, I have to admit.

14 NE Jake Shears - Creep City
Most definitely I have seen a thread here on UKMix somewhere. Decent, not sensational though.

TONY'S HITS CHART 19th JANUARY 2018

1 NE Tonight Alive - Temple
VIDEO

Out since October - i've not been overly convinced by them till this album... It beggars belief that groups like this and Against The Current get zero UK playlist action (outside of Kerrang! and Planet Rock), especially as they have proven fanbases. There's not just Paramore! :o

2 3 Simple Minds - The Signal and The Noise AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (2 weeks; PEAK)
Best thing they've done since the early days of Theme For Great Cities and Love Song. Dark, muscular synth rock. Editors and U2 can only dream.

3 NE Me Not You - Julia AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
Aus duo born from the ashes of Little Daylight (a darker brand of synth here). I charted Bulletproof and here's the belated entry (because they only just put it on YT) for the second single.

4 1 Field Music - Count It Up AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (3 weeks; peak #1)
5 2 Courtney Act - Kaleidoscope VIDEO (2 weeks; peak #2)
6 NE Post Precious - Sign Of The Times AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
Harry Styles cover - more emphasis on their synth arrangement than the big melody. 16 places superior (in a 15 position January lull).

7 NE Tonight Alive with Lynn Gunn - Disappear VIDEO
Current single with Pvris singer.

8 4 Post Precious - Timebomb (12 weeks; peak #1)
9 5 Behind The Shadow Drops - Positive Shadow, Negative Light (3 weeks; peak #5)
10 6 Bjork - Arisen My Senses (5 weeks; peak #2)
11 NE Me Not You - Everafter LYRIC VIDEO
Current single.

12 7 Jonathan Wilson - Over The Midnight (5 weeks; peak #3)
13 8 Little Mix - Nothing Else Matters (10 weeks; peak #4)
14 11 Charlotte Gainsbourg - I'm A Lie (2 weeks; peak #11)
15 9 Hercules and Love Affair feat. Gustaph - My Curse and Cure (2 weeks; peak #9)

--------------------------------------------------

TONY'S ALBUM CHART 19th JANUARY 2018

1 NE Tonight Alive - Underworld
SPOTIFY
Don't mistake this for an album by 2 British dance men! :lol: First half is best.

2 NE Me Not You - Reckoning 1 (MA) SPOTIFY
3 1 The Birthday Massacre - Under Your Spell (26 weeks; peak #1)
4 2 Bjork - Utopia (8 weeks; peak #1)
5 3 Charli XCX - Pop 2 (mixtape) (5 weeks; peak #2)
6 NE LPX - Bolt In The Blue (MA) SPOTIFY
7 6 Blondie - Pollinator (16 weeks; peak #1)
8 7 Jessie Ware - Glasshouse (13 weeks; peak #1)
9 8 Taylor Swift - Reputation (10 weeks; peak #1)
10 NE James Rhodes - Fire On All Sides SPOTIFY
11 NE Joe Satriani - What Happens Next SPOTIFY
12 4 Mono - Requiem For Hell (2 weeks; peak #4)
13 NE Leaves' Eyes - Sign Of The Dragonhead SPOTIFY
14 NE Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Wrong Creatures SPOTIFY
^^ 2 groups long past their best. Leaves' Eyes are only half the same group with Liv Kristine and others gone.

15 12 Charli XCX - Number 1 Angel (mixtape) (15 weeks; peak #1)

I like Anavae more than Tonight Alive , but the song is still alright (their newest single ''Disappear'' song got to #18 in my chart a week ago, not much but anyway)

11 NE Me Not You - Everafter
Interesting song.
