TOP 30: MERCHANDISE HEAD SEVEN FAT NEW ENTRIES, NICHOLAS NICHOLAS TO NO. 1
Friday, 30 May 2014 00:00
 

Florida's Merchandise head the whopping seven new entries this week in a week where the chart blooded a new number one, Nicholas Nicholas with 'Meet Me In The Park'.

The ever evolving Merchandise are set to release a new album via veteran London imprint 4AD which marks a departure of sorts for the band who released records via tiny but awesome label Night People ('Total Nite' - 2013) and on Katorga Works ('Children Of Desire' - 2012). The first single from the forthcoming album After The End is the hopelessly infectious guitar pop and rock gem 'Little Killer' with its bookends of dissonant distractions. For the impatient out there, you may not make the ear candy and that will be on your head. 'Little Killer' debuts in top 10 at 7.

We featured Toronto's Champion Lover a couple of days back and their track 'Read My Mind' from their debut album enters the count at 21. Washington DC sextet Brett has been floating around the place for a few weeks now and the sublime 'Lovers', the second single from their self-titled album, finally hits the chart at 22. Brooklyn synth pop trio Papertwin has a new EP on the horizon titled Vox Humana and the first track from it, 'Alkaline' comes in at 26.

Another Brooklyn outfit, albiet now at veteran status, Bishop Allen returns after a five year hiatus with a new record, Lights Out, set for the release in August and the first single, 'Start Again' is in at 27. Cold Beat, the project of Hannah Lew, has a new record coming out in July called Over Me and the crisp jangle pop driven first single 'Mirror' debuts at 29. Completing the seven new ones is London quartet Felt Tip with the title track off their new EP, Simple Things and that's in at 30.
