Indie Rock from Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Music Report – May 29, 2019

by Jay Boeding on May 28, 2019

As mentioned last week, Vampire Weekend was going to be difficult to hold out of the top spot, and this week it climbed over Cayucas to switch places as the #1 Album of the Week on DMPulse. Cage the Elephant, Broken Social Scene stay put at #3 and #4, with Craig Finn cracking the top 5. The National and Alex Lahey go from the New Albums Added chart into the Top Ten Albums chart.

Middle Kids new EP lands the top spot on the New Albums Added to the Playlist chart. Indie veterans Sebadoh return with a rollicking new record while new artists Cold Showers, Faye Webster and Hayden Thorpe premiere on our playlist.

Alex Lahey makes a big drive to #1, moving up seven spots from last week. Cage The Elephant makes a nice move as well, up four spots to land at #2 on the Top 10 Songs of the Week Chart. Vampire Weekend is the highest debut this week, in at #3 with This Life. Beck also debuts on the Top 10 at #4 and Middle Kids rounds out the Top 5.
