Oh Hello there August!

One more month of summer time before everyone comes rushing back! Soon there will be many huge records every week. Soon we will be talking about the CMJ festival. Soon... soon... Until then I imagine Tame Impala might hold on to the #1 spot on the charts.  Although things are going to get a little crazy in the top 10.

This week saw 3 records get over 100 adds each!  Just look at this top 5.

I would have to imagine all of those records have #1 aspirations! 

Then if we take a look at what is already on the charts. Last weeks #1 most added, Ducktails comes in at #6 will surely be in the top 5 next week. Titus Andronicus debuted at 16 and should easily be in the top 10 next week. 

Looking at this top 10

How many records will still be in there next week? 
With Ducktails, Titus Andronicus, Wilco ( at #13) Mac Demarco (#58) all charging up. We are going to see a lot of turnover I would think very soon.  

What do you think ? Tame Impala is in the drivers seat right now but you have the same company working multiple records that have #1 in their sights. I can't know what conversations go on there but I could tell you that If I had 2 records that were both #1 possibilities I would do my best to try and get them both #1. When you do that though you leave the door open for others to swoop in there. 

Out of those records.. who do you think has the best shot at #1? Who will for sure not get #1? 

Should be fun to watch. 

Lets chat on the twitter machine.
