TOP 30: CHART UPHEAVAL! TEN NEW ENTRIES, ESSAIE PAS TO TOP SPOT!
Friday, 26 June 2015 12:50
 

After it’s regular week break at this time of year, the Top 30 returns this week with a massive nine affecting new entries and a new number one, breathing new life into the chart heading into the second half of 2015.

Unsurprisingly, especially for our long term regular readers, the seven minute piece of electronic shoegaze wonder that is the new The Radio Dept. single, ‘Occupied’ goes straight into the Top 10 at 6. 

 

The next highest debut goes to 18 year old Los Angeles artist Lena Fayre with the wistful heartbreaker ‘Colors Of Leaving’, her new single from her forthcoming EP, Is There Only One. Like fellow L.A artist Miya Folick, whose ‘I Got Drunk’ is still in the chart, Fayre does everything independently which makes her stunning work all the more impressive. What just might be her best track yet debuts at 13. Toronto trio Tearjerker's new single, the slow burning 'Obviously Wrong', nestles in one spot behind

 

Somerville, Massachusetts popster Luke Reed has released a catchy, groove laden new single, ‘Pathetic’. If ever the measure of a track’s worth didn’t match it’s title, this is it. It’s positively gold and sits at 17.

 

San Francisco post punk outfit Flesh World released their first full length proper, The Wild Animals In My Life, earlier in the month and the dreamy, yet superbly untidy title track debuts at 18. The album can be got at here through Iron Lung Records, the label of Total Control.

 

Helsinki synth pop duo Ideomotor released their debut EP, For A Moment We Are Strangers, back in March 2015. Now they return with a grandiose, anthemic new single, ‘Amplified’ . That enters the chart at 20.

 

After three long and painful years where everyhting that could have conspired to frustrate Brooklyn dark synth pop duo Telepathe is finally over with the news that their new album, Destroyer, originally slated for release way back in 2012, is set for an August release. The brand new track, the rhythmically urgent and musically transcendental, ‘Night’s Spell’ debuts at 22.

 

The new Protomartyr track, ‘Blues Festival’ which we featured a couple of week’s back takes its bow at 23 while one sport behind is another track we’ve previously featured, Ratatat’s ‘Abrasive’.

 

Word has it that Istanbul electronic duo Kim Ki O are in the process of writing for a new record and to whet our appetite has released a swirling new track, the hypnotic Krautrock inspired ’The Art Of Failure’ which appears on the new sampler, Planète Hurlante, from their French based label Lentonia Records. That, the last of the new entries, debuts at 26. The sampler is available here for a NYP arrangement.

 

Montreal electronic duo Essaie Pas hit number one with the restless and ultra energetic, ‘Danse Sociale’ while Johan Angergård’s The Legends moves into the Top 10 with ‘Something Left To Die For’.

 

All chart details can be found here, the six unfeatured tracks sit below while the eight new ones and the remaining 22 can be streamed in our Top 30 player. There's also a brand new video for the swaggering BREAKFAST track, 'Sally Hansen', which is still in the thirty at 24.
