Indie Rock from Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Music Report – July 10, 2018

by Jay Boeding on July 10, 2018

Rolling Blackouts Coast Fever takes the top spot on our most-played albums chart. Some terrific songs on that record! You should definitely check it out, as I think it will make many “Best of 2018″ lists later this year. Soft Kill and Snail Mail are making their debuts in the top 10.

This week, we added perhaps the highest number of new albums to the playlist in some time. Ten new albums or EPs! Some recognizable names on the New Albums chart, with new music from Jim James, legendary band The Alarm, and Gorillaz. Iowa’s own Field Division lands at #2 after playing a great set at the 80-35 Music Festival in Des Moines this past weekend. Yuno, courtship and Didirri are also worth seeking out.

Amy Shark’s “I Say Hi” tops the song chart, with Camp Cope and Gorillaz making up our top 3 most-played songs of the week.
