Hello everyone and welcome to the post-SXSW edition of the SubModern Report. Of course, I wasn't actually there, but I hope everyone who was had a great time and caught a lot of great music!
On the charts this week it was all about the UMO... Unknown Mortal Orchestra! Their fifth album, appropriately titled V, and new single "Meshuggah" topped both charts by wide margins over the closest competition. Congrats to members Ruban Nielson and Jacob Partrait and all involved with this release, two years in the works.
Who then was the closest competion? That would have been M83 with the Fantasy album, now fully released, coming in at #2. At #3 was Yves Tumor's also just-released Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds). Feist's new record Multitudes may not yet be out, but that didn't stop it from reaching #4 this week, thanks to another single, "Borrow Trouble," dropping at #5(t). But tied at #5 on the album chart were Islands In The Sky from Death Valley Girls and The Valley of Vision from Manchester Orchestra. Fever Ray's Radical Romantics is on its own at #7, followed by another tie at #8, featuring upcoming albums Everything Harmony by The Lemon Twigs and Continue As A Guest by The New Pornographers. That leaves only Sleaford Mods at #10 with UK Grim.
Back on the singles chart, Protomartyr's "Make Way" didn't make way for anything else, remaining at #2, followed by mysterious newcomers Bar Italia, making their top ten debut with "Nurse!" at #3. Tame Impala's Dungeons & Dragons jam "Wings of Time" moves up [rolls ten-sided die] five spots to #4. The aforementioned Leslie Feist ("Borrow Trouble") and Manchester Orchestra ("The Way) share the #5 spot with Nation of Language's latest tune "Sole Obsession." A new track from The Chemical Brothers, "No Reason," is tied with "Bang Bang" from Momma at #8. Finally there are seven tunes all tied at #10, from Benny Sings, Bully, Demob Happy, Fontaines D.C., The Lemon Twigs, The New Pornographers, and Phoenix. You can find all the titles as well even more singles and albums beyond the top ten on the full charts HERE.
With SXSW now in the rear view, you'll find a full loaded Available For Airplay list this week to fill your shows, your ears, and probably next week's SubModern charts. We shall see in seven days time.
