What’s spinning at the top of Wildcat 91.9’s charts?
Angel Olsen – All Mirrors
She’s back my friends, Angel Olsen is back and has shot straight to the top of our charts. This albums seems to combine past versions of her continuously evolving sound to create something truly magnificent. Please educate yourself and listen to this album.
Marika Hackman – Any Human Friend
Overtly sexual lyrics and hidden message about love make up most of this indie-pop album. This crude but incredibly fun group of songs strikes a strange balance between making you want to kiss a stranger and making you reflect on all the love you lost in life.
Twin Peaks – Lookout Low
Twin Peak’s fourth studio album makes a return to the top of our charts this week. This great blend of jam band funk and classic rock is easily listening for anyone who hears it.
Shannon Lay – August
Appearing at the top of our charts for weeks in a row, Shannon Lay’s first solo album mixes fantastic folk music with subtle (very subtle) hints of the punk genre. Lay has said that the album is a metaphor for a river, we think it’s a river worth riding to its conclusion.
Chastity Belt – Chastity Belt
In their fourth studio album, this indie pop/rock band brings a chilled out and more mature performance than their past work. While they may sacrifice variety for this refined sound, this album well worth a listen for long time fans.
(Sandy) Alex G – House of Sugar
This slaps, not much other way to put it. It shot straight to the top of the charts as soon as it dropped, and looks like it will be staying for a bit. The album is a series of vignettes and while none are complete powerhouses, each grabs your attention and makes you feel each lyric.
Big Thief – Two Hands
Two Hands is raw emotion in a non-filters setting. The second to come from Big Thief this year, feels like it was meant to be heard live so you can experience the power behind the lyrics of each track. It’s got highs and lows in terms of energy but it will leave you in your feels no matter what track you listen to.
Frankie Cosmos – Close It Quietly
This album has sat, high and mighty, at the top of our charts for three weeks now, and it’s easy to understand why. It’s variation in sound and theme from track to track give mind to the power of collaboration this band has found and harnessed. It’s definitely different from their norm, but it is all the better for it.
Kate Teague – Kate Teague
Soft alt rock and very subtle dashes of country pop come to together in the artists debut album. Kate Teague is an album that speaks to many of Teague’s experiences in life and makes for some damn relatable lyrics that make experiencing this album so much more personal.
Jay Som – Anak Ko
This album is nothing but fun energy and innocent playfulness but also manages to hit you in feels when you least expect it. Jay Som has hit her stride, making it no surprise this album has sat near the top of our charts for two weeks.
Surf Curse – Heaven Surrounds You
In Surf Curse’s third studio album, constant references to cult classic movies pair excellently with the band’s classic upbeat brand of rock. A slight variation in their tried and true formula of song making make this album a great listen for both new and old fans.
