TOP 30: KORALLREVEN HEAD THE NEW ENTRIES
Friday, 28 August 2015 00:00
 

If you’re a regular purveyor of this Top 30 chart, you’d be familiar that independent heavyweights Destroyer and Neon Indian both entered together a few weeks back with the first lifting from their new albums, Poison Season and VEGA INTL. Night School respectively. Well, this week sees the same thing happen with the Bowie styled 'Times Square' from the Dan Bejar masterminded outfit entering at 17 while Alan Palomo’s project continues the move away from chill wave and into proto disco and funk with ‘Slumlord’ at 19. We featured the new Grand Courriers track, ‘Table Talk’ during the week and that enters at 28.

Trumping these three is the farewell track from soon to be defunct Stockholm duo Korallreven with the wistful ‘Here In Iowa’ at 15. Melbourne post punk quartet Gold Class smashed its way into the Top 10, rising 14 places to 10 with the urgent, ‘Life As A Gun’ while FKA twigs ‘In Time’ (6) and Molly Nilsson, ‘1995’ (8) also enter the top third. Ought is still at number one with the epic ‘Beautiful Blue Sky’.
