week ending


You know the end of the year is nearing when the new music starts to dwindle and a favorite album from earlier in the year reclaims the #1 spot on the charts. This week that's Household Name from Momma, which seems to be in a horse race with Wet Leg for SubModern album of the year. We'll see how that shakes out next month.

On the singles chart, Yo La Tengo repeats their success from last week with the new tune "Fallout" at #1. That's followed at #2 by Panic Shack's punkified reimagining of Metronomy's "It's Good To Be Back" for the new special edition of Small World, which is conveniently also #2. Two singles are tied for the #3 spot - "End of The Line" from Civic and "Smalltown Stardust" from King Tuff. A brand new track from Fever Ray, "Carbon Dioxide," makes its debut at #5, followed by another tie at #6. This one is between Iggy Pop's "Frenzy" and "Motorbike" from the aforementioned Momma, who have a second track in the top ten as well. That one, "Callin Me," is in a three-way tie at #8, which also includes "Seven Days Straight" from Fort Frances and "Kool Aid" from Royel Otis.

Picking up with #3 on the album chart, we have Smut with How The Light Felt, followed by Black Honey's A Fistful of Peaches and Weyes Blood's And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow (both forthcoming) at #4. The next tie at #6 is between Crocodyle's Rly Funny EP and Windser's Where The Redwoods Meet The Sea. That leaves us to close the top ten with a four-way tie at #8, which features Miss Power from Connie Constance, I'm Doing Well, Thanks For Asking from Jordana, Time's Arrow from Ladytron, and Cool It Down from Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The last SubModern Report of the year will be on December 14th.
