Indie Rock from Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Music Report – March 20, 2019

by Jay Boeding on March 19, 2019

Girlpool jumps up to capture the top spot on our Album Chart after moving up to #2 from #10 the week prior. Another mover on the chart is the new album from Telekinesis climbing up four to #2. Beirut slides to #3 with a strong move from And The Kids into #4. Our top debut on the album chart is from Better Oblivion Community Center landing in the top 5. I’ll refrain from making a “Helium” pun about Homeshake’s album debuting at #6. Andrew Bird debuts at #8.

Karen O and Danger Mouse land the top new album added to the playlist this week. Other artists coming on to DMPulse this week include Du Blonde, These New Puritans, Nanami Ozone and EB The Younger. A new record from Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus also debuts.

Huge turnover on the Top 10 songs of the week, as only three of last week’s top 10 return, making seven debuts on the chart! Foals moves from #10 to take the top spot, with Maggie Rogers making a big jump up the charts too. Cage The Elephant takes #3 with Beirut “Landslide” and Andrew Bird “Sisyphus” going #4 & #5. New songs debuting in the lower half of the top 10 from Girlpool, Kurt Vile, illuminati hotties, Jeff Tweedy and Craig Finn.
