Better Oblivion Community Center charges up the Album chart to take #1 this week. Andrew Bird also makes a big move, rising to #2. Girlpool, Homeshake and Claypool Lennon Delirium make up the top ten, with Julia Jacklin debuting on the top 10 album chart this week.

New albums added from Ex Hex and Strand of Oaks this week. Ex Hex broke through on DMPulse with their last outing, and we are already spinning “Cosmic Cave”and “Tough Enough” from the new record. Son Volt and Orville Peck give a decidedly alt-country flavor to this week’s new records.

Andrew Bird jumps to the top of the song chart this week, with the first release from his new record “Sisyphus”. Girlpool also makes a good move up from #6 to #2. Jeff Tweedy has the first of two songs in at #3 with “Don’t Forget”. Beirut and Kurt Vile round out the top five.
