There’s a log jam of tracks waiting to enter the chart this week which means that for this week anyway, there is no room for two of our favourite artists who released new tracks last week, Dan Bejar’s Destroyer and Alan Palomo’s Neon indian. We’ve included ‘Dream Lover’ and ‘Annie’ respectively as predictions below as its likely they will enter at some stage and we didn’t want to wait to post them even though you’re probably all over both. There are also others of a very different type. More on one of those tomorrow. The back log stems from the fact that the last three weeks have seen almost half the chart turnover and those that have come in are just still too strong to tip out. Good news about the strength of good independent music right now and in that case in point, this site is just the tip of the iceberg, whatever you’re into.

Liza Anne’s piece of perfectly paced pure pop brilliance, ‘Take It Back’ ascends to its inevitable position at top spot. Regular readers will know how much we have been gushing about it so that will be of no surprise to them!


The two new entries however do come from two artists that we have featured this week, Heather Woods Broderick with the first single from her new album, Glider, ’A Call For Distance’. That enters at 28. Going one better at 27 is the beautiful, yet quite sad, ‘Gena’ from LENPARROTT, whose EP Aquiobonism, was released earlier this month.
