This week King Gizzard held strong at #1 with Radiohead at #2. I could go into more detail but with so few stations reporting you can't put much faith that any trend will be upheld next week. Still worth keeping an eye on James Blake, Fruit Bats, Twin Peaks. Kristin Kontrol looks to be in a good position coming in at 17 after the ADD week. These next few weeks will be interesting to watch to see if any trends emerge from the low reporting of ADDS. Car Seat Headrest comes in with the top debut of the week at #39 after missing ADDS completely.
Looking at the Spinitron chart we see that overwhelmingly the Radiohead record is doing the best, to me thats no surprise but seeing James Blake in the #2 spot makes me think we should be looking at them as a serious contender. While if the playing fields were even I think Radiohead would of been #1 by now, with James Blake having the addition of a outside indie working the record we could see a run. Remember that the last record to get to #1 without an outside indie was Yo La Tengo over 3years ago. So it does not happen very often.
Short one this week with the short week but thank you for reading! Your friend Foug.
