Indie Rock from Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Music Report – March 13, 2019

by Jay Boeding on March 12, 2019

Beirut hangs on to the top spot on our Album chart, with a big jump from Girlpool from #10 to #2 this week. Perfect Son switches places with Sharon Van Etten and Maggie Rogers stays at #5. Telekinesis is the top debut on the Top 10 Album Chart with “Effluxion” at #6 with other debuts from Ladytron and And The Kids.

The Meat Puppets won my heart back as a youth in 1994, and it is terrific to have them all back together again. They take the top Added Album of the week with “Dusty Notes”. Otherwise, tons of new artists to our playlist this week: Ten Fé, Stella Donnelly, Kiwi Jr and SASAMI round out the top 5.

Vampire Weekend rules the Top 10 Songs chart for the week with “Harmony Hall”. Toro Y Moi jumps four places to #2 and Phosphorescent makes a major move this week going from #9 to #3 with “My Beautiful Boy”. Jenny Lewis and Pinegrove round out the top five. Cage The Elephant, Maggie Rogers and Foals all enter the top 10 charts this week.
