TOP 30: PARQUET COURTS AND CARIBOU STRAIGHT INTO TOP 10
Thursday, 12 June 2014 07:29
 

Huge turnover again this week as seven songs debut, adding to the nine over the previous two, meaning over half the chart has been turned over in just three weeks. There are four new tracks we have not previously featured on Indie30. Let's go through them.

The first comes from the Brooklyn intellectual punk slackers, Parquet Courts, whose brand new album Sunbathing Animal is our album of the week. They're straight into the top 10 at 9 with their latest single complete the new video, the hynotically raucous, feedback killer 'Black And White'.

It was with most excitement that we heard the new track, 'Can't Do Without You' from Dan Snaith's Caribou project. The Canadian is set to release a new album, 'Only You' in October, his first in four years after releasing under the Daphni moniker among others in between. It's in at 10.

London trio Real Lies are in at 27 with their new single, the almost spoken word reflective spiral, 'North Circular'. It's very much a departure from their very Balearic track 'World Peace' from last year.

The final previously unfeatured track comes from a band that blew our very pop socks off with their album from 2012, Tender Opposites which ended up in our tope 10 favourite albums of that year. While 'Change Of Heart' doesn't match some of the gems from that record, its still good enough to make an entrance into our 30 best tracks this week. In fact, at 30.

The Death Of Pop's 'Whenever' (20), Firekites', 'Closing Forever Sky' (21) and Essaie Pas's, 'Retox' (25 complete the new entries.

There were big moves afoot for Merchandise who take the number one spot with 'Little Killer. Seoul move up from six to two with 'White Morning', Essaie Pas's split EP partners Police Des Moeurs move up from 12 to 7 with 'Je Te Montrerai (feat Donzelle)' and Brett 14 to 5 with 'Lovers' featuring Yumi Zouma's Kim.
