Top 5 Adds 10/6/2014

1. Zola Jesus- Taiga

2. Caribou- Our Love

3. Wilhelm Tell Me- A Short Story For The Road

4. Broods- Evergreen

5. Flying Lotus- You’re Dead

We received some great adds in this week. One of my personal favorites is the new Broods album. Very similar to Lorde and Lana Del Rey with strong female vocals mixed with electronic sounds underneath. A Top 30 appearance next week is definitely expected. Caribou and Flying Lotus both with their fifth album have created a name for themselves and these albums prove why they’ve gained success. All five albums have great potential to joining our Top 30 next week! We’re super excited about all of these bands!

This week we had to say goodbye to some of our bigger named artists that were previously on our Top 30 such as Lana Del Rey, Coldplay, and Atmosphere. However, we added some great new artists to fill their roles such as Yelle, an electronic French artist, King Tuff, a popular alternative rock band, and The Left Ready a new indie rock band with a bright future ahead of them.

Moving up the list this week we have Go Back to the Zoo who were a top 5 add two weeks ago. Their indie pop rock sound immediately caught our DJ’s attention. Grace Weber, one of our favorites at the station has also moved up chart this week. We had the pleasure of interviewing her this morning and will be posting up a podcast of the interview in the next couple of days. Also moving up we have Pale Hands who have recently become a hit with our DJ’s here at KMSC. What’s not to like about dreamy female vocals over melodic electronic sounds and beats?

Keeping a steady presence on our chart is are two of CMJ’s favorites Ryan Adams and Ty Segall. It’s no surprise to see these two coming out, yet again, with a solid album. Also staying steady at the top of our charts we see Black Taxi and Tennis. I predict these two artists will be staying up at the top for awhile!
