Cayucas tops the charts with Real Life! Even more impressive is holding off a surging Vampire Weekend record, which goes from #7 to #2. It will be challenging to keep Vampire Weekend out of the top spot next week. A bit forgotten with all the great albums coming out is a strong album from Cage The Elephant, which moves up one to #3. Broken Social Scene and Jenny Lewis move down from the top of the album chart last week to round out the top 5. Debuts in the Top 10 Albums Chat from Tacocat, Foxygen and Big Thief this week.

The New Albums chart is exciting, as I think this is an incredible group of new records for Summer 2019. The first four artists are familiar, with a beautiful new album from The National and an EP from Interpol. Alex Lahey’s The Best of Luck Club debuts while there is a new tunes from Cate Le Bon. The final five on the list are albums we are looking forward to digging into in the weeks ahead.

Tame Impala takes #1 on the Songs Chart. Debuts from Cage The Elephant, Alex Lahey and Middle Kids.
