Of course the quality of stations matters more than the quantity of stations but we have lost a lot of good ones not just mediocre ones. Stations continue to ask me what am I paying CMJ for and with new resources popping up it is becoming less and less important. One of the main worries stations have is that they won't get records anymore. I am curious if thats true. Anyways on to the Charts!
Lets start with Spinitron this week because its again a foreshadowing of what the CMJ charts brought us.
Lets look at the top 10
|1||153||Angel Olsen||My Woman||Rock|
|3||91||De La Soul||and the Anonymous Nobody...||Hip-Hop / Rap|
|4||90||Of Montreal||Innocence Reaches||Rock|
|5||87||Thee Oh Sees||A Weird Exits||Rock|
|8||72||Local Natives||Sunlit Youth||Rock|
|9||71||Blood Orange||Freetown Sound||Rock|
Another killer week by Angel Olsen. When I see this chart on Mondays I have a pretty good idea of what the CMJ charts might look like. Especially when you see such a huge gap. I had little doubt that Angel Olsen would be #1 this week and we will get to that in a second but it wasn't even close.
The ADDS preview seems to be something you guys like so thanks for reading. This past week we had a poll on what would be the #1 record for the week. This too wasn't even close as Nick Cave ran away with it. I did the Poll wrong so you don't see the results but it was Nick Cave and then 1 or 2 votes for everything else.
A lot of bunching on this weeks ADDS chart
|1||65||NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS||Skeleton Tree||Kobalt|
|2||50||KISHI BASHI||Sonderlust||Joyful Noise|
|3||35||DAWES||We're All Gonna Die||Q Prime-HUB|
|4||34||PARTYBABY||The Golden Age Of Bullshit||Warner Bros.|
|5||33||MNDSGN||Body Wash||Stones Throw|
|6||32||CHAIN WALLET||Chain Wallet||Jansen Plateproduksjon|
|7||30||DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS||American Band||ATO|
|8||28||NICK WATERHOUSE||Never Twice||Innovative Leisure|
|9||26||BILLY BRAGG AND JOE HENRY||Shine A Light||Cooking Vinyl|
|10||23||CYMBALS EAT GUITARS||Pretty Years||Sinderlyn|
You could say Nick Cave and Kishi Bashi are in one tier then the next 8 are all pretty close together.
Also worth nothing that 5 of those ten records have already debuted on the charts.
As for the charts as I mentioned it was Angel Olsen and it wasn't even close. Just above 60% of stations charted the record up from 53% the week before.
|1||1||5||1||4||ANGEL OLSEN||MY WOMAN||Jagjaguwar|
|2||2||3||2||4||OF MONTREAL||Innocence Reaches||Polyvinyl|
|3||3||1||1||7||THEE OH SEES||A Weird Exits||Castle Face|
|5||9||140||5||3||LOCAL NATIVES||Sunlit Youth||Loma Vista|
|6||8||20||6||3||MILD HIGH CLUB||Skiptracing||Stones Throw|
|7||4||7||4||4||CRYSTAL CASTLES||Amnesty (I)||Republic|
|8||36||190||8||3||ALLAH-LAS||Calico Review||Mexican Summer|
|9||10||15||9||3||DE LA SOUL||And The Anonymous Nobody||A.O.I.|
Based on the Spinitron chart I would of thought De La Soul would of been higher but its only week 3. The last few #1 ADDS have had big firsts weeks and while I was expecting something similar for Wilco I didn't expect top 5.
Over the next few weeks it will be interesting to watch the race for #1. Wilco, Local Natives are the 2 front runners but Nick Cave should have a big jump up to the top 10 this next week. But All of these records are going to need huge gains and a huge drop off from Angel Olsen to have a shot. I imagine next week will give us a good idea of who could be the next #1.
Ok thank you for reading. I am On the road on Friday so am unsure if I can do a full ADDS blog but I will try!
Lets talk on twitter though!
