TOP 30: JULIA HOLTER HEADS UP SEVEN NEW ENTRIES FROM IYLAS, FLATLINER, FENSTER, SHOPPING, TRANSISTOR RAY AND DELOREAN
Thursday, 16 July 2015 13:10
 

The chart this week again sees a large volume of turnover with six new entries. While The Radio Dept. remain at 1 with ‘Occupied’ there were big moves from Lena Fayre ‘Colors Of Leaving (6 to 3), Snowy Nasdaq & Snowy Life, ‘Ironic Life’ (13 to 8) and Flesh World, ‘The Wild Animals In My Life’ (14 to 9).

Los Angeles artist Julia Holter debuts at 21 with the celestial like ‘Feel You’, a breathtaking ride that straddles 80s pomposity with its huge off beat and crashing wave like synths with 60s and 70s pop sensibility. And, oh, those strings! You can access the surreal self-doubt laden lyrics here. ‘Feel You’ comes off her forthcoming fourth album, Have You In My Wilderness and is out September 25. 

 

Two spots behind at 23 is Ilyas, whom we featured yesterday with the measuredly dreamy, ’Sensual People’ as well as Flatliner, with the mesmerising yet ghoulishly dark ‘Blasted Highway’ at 24.

 

Berlin based dream pop quartet Fenster enter the chart at 25 with the positively gorgeous ‘Memories’, a track with inventive bass lines driving its elastic yet soothing rhythm, meticulously crafted lead guitar flourishes and sax work that will restore faith in the instrument even for the most skeptical outside its recent Balearic pop home.

 

East London post punk trio Shopping enter at 27 with, ‘Why Wait?’ a simple, familiar and brief ode about the futility of modern consumerism featuring spindly spiky guitar, fat dirty bass and busy drums. The oodles of space and juxtaposition in sound between guitar and bass make the track.

 

We’ve been sitting on the new track from Transistor Ray, the psychedelic cum beatnik project of Giovanni Saldarragia, for about a month now and can do so no longer. The winding, lyrically wry, almost Doorsesque keys wise only upbeat and interesting with its relentless rhythm, ‘In Love Again (Nothing Will Be Alright) debuts at 29.

 

Finally, Basque country synth pop veterans Delorean are back with new material that will eventually morph into a new record early in 2016. We prefer the B side, ‘Bena’ off the new single, Crystal and that’s in at number 30.
