This week was a nice last hurrah for a few artists I had my eyes and ears on. The most notable of those would be Brother Ali and The XX, both of whom charted well in their final week at numbers 2 and 3 respectively. Props, too, to the Black Hollies (#5), Rain Machine (#9) […]

This week was, thankfully, a return to normalcy. Of course, Flight of the Conchords is still rocking our collective world here at KVSC, so much so that one of our intrepid volunteers took the time to edit some of the fine but dirty tracks. Long live our New Zealand-based overlords! What I’m most excited about, […]

Your Humble Music Director* is a sad but conflicted panda this week. On the one hand, some underappreciated artists got some love, but it came, apparently, at the cost of some deserving ones. The big loss this week was that of Del & Tame One, which netted as many plays as Brett Favre has netted […]

For the first time in my (very brief) tenure as MD here at KVSC, I can say that we’ve got a repeat Top 2 in our Top 30, and I couldn’t be happier. Not, of course, because of the consistency such an event represents: There’s nothing inherently wrong with variety from week to week. It’s […]

This week, all the happenin’ folks in the indie music scene are converging in the NYC for the big CMJ blowout party, but that won’t stop me from compiling weekly charts here at the KVSC, and what a week it was. One could call last week’s well-spread musical love an example of the slow, creeping […]

Technology, as has been said before and will be said forevermore, is a fickle thing. I will resist the urge to launch into a rant about “modern society” because I am neither old nor a hippie (no offense meant towards either group, except hippies who don’t bathe, that’s just gross). However(!), I will say that […]

The hardest part about this job is, probably, seeing music you enjoy struggle to get airtime. It’s like being a parent on the first day of school. You’ve spent years telling your child that they’re good enough, strong enough, and people will like them, only to see it all come undone with one remark about […]

My brother in beard-age here at KVSC, James, is a happy, hairy man this week. Yo La Tengo up went and stole the show this week, puttin’ a real hurtin’ on the other artist in our charts (the image which makes me think of this). He’d told me when he reviewed it that it was […]

This week was all about a changing of the guard, or so it seems. We had a number of newcomers charting, pushing “older” records down the list, as well as some final, send-off appearances. The Mumlers defied the recent trend of our New Release of the Week Bump (not as snappy as Colbert, but we […]

I think I’m beginning to come to terms with the Chaos Theory. As Wikipedia would have me believe, said theory revolves around the notion that there are systems (mathematically speaking) which appear to be random (read: chaotic) on the surface, but are simply highly affected by small changes in the “initial conditions” of the system.
