This week we finally saw the fall of Ty Segall from the #1 spot. What a run though! Has to be in contention for biggest record of the year. As expected it was King Tuff that took over the #1 spot with just under 70% of the stations charting. This sets up what should be a fun few weeks on the chart. As we have a bunch of records that have put themselves in position to contend.
|1||2||5||1||4||KING TUFF||Black Moon Spell||SUB POP|
|2||1||1||1||8||TY SEGALL||Manipulator||Drag City|
|3||3||7||3||13||ALT-J||This Is All Yours||Canvasback-Atlantic|
|5||14||113||5||3||FOXYGEN||And Star Power||Jagjaguwar|
This top five should be rather volatile over the next few weeks. I could of included some of the next group as well
|6||80||-||6||2||FLYING LOTUS||You're Dead||Warp|
but really think top five will be the ceiling for these records. Foxygen made a nice move into the top 5 but Caribou has the added push of 2 indies on board and being a week younger, it will be tough for Foxygen to pull past Caribou. Alt-J I feel is out performing what I thought it would and while I doubt it has the momentum to take #1 it is worth keeping an eye on.
We have 7 more reporting weeks after this CMJ break. My guess is that King Tuff holds for another week before Caribou takes over. After that its anyones guess.
The ADDS this week were not much to look at. Anytime you see a record get #1 most added with under 100 adds you know its an underwhelming week. To have the #1 most added record get only 69 adds... ooof.. none of these records will be contenders for the top of the chart.
See you at CMJ!!!!
