Archived: KVSC Top 30 (10/19-10/25)

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 just that the two duos which have been our lead duo for the last duo of weeks(?) are sooooo good! First, in first, there’s Flight of the Conchords. Honestly, if you don’t crack a smile to their tunes, it’s your fault. It’s just too bad we can’t play some of my favorites from the CD, given their explicit(ly hilarious) content. Second, in second place, we’ve got Del the Funky Homosapien and Tame One, a release which reaffirms my desire to increase my hip-hop/rap consumption. It’s got smart rhymes coupled with sweet production and samples, which is a combo that can do no wrong.

Other notes:

Speaking of hip-hop, Wax Tailor snuck in to the Top 30 for the last time this week. I really think that record was underappreciated, but it did have a few good weeks, so I can’t really complain too much.

Avett Brothers made themselves a strong debut this week at number 3. If you listened to Crispy Critics last week, you might have already guessed at why. If you didn’t catch CC, then make sure to check it out here, as you can every week (</shamelessselfpromotion>). In a short, related note, I’d like to give a big Woo-Hoo-Hoo for Royal Bangs charting at #16 this week!

And, finally, props to Fink as his smooth jazzy styles exit stage left. I’m glad we got to (and did) play the stuffing out of that album.


We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the charts began to take hold.
