It’s a new month and the top 5 for this week was somewhat of a lazy one because I am wanting support for the band and singer-songwriter from the listeners whether it’s from social media sites or from the radio elsewhere. Aside that The Suburbs by Arcade Fire is still #1, the album, also called The Suburbs is finally released on digital and physical versions.
Here’s the Wild 5 Countdown for August 4, 2010;
1. The Suburbs – Arcade Fire (11 weeks and the highly anticipated album is out now. So far, there’s been good responses on the album)
2. Hand To Hold – Adaline (Up a spot. Please bring support or make request for her)
3. White Wolves – Bravestation (Up a spot. Same reason from #2)
4. Swift Coin – Land of Talk (Down 2 spots)
5. All It Is – Kathryn Calder (New entry and is August’s X3 Artist of the Month)
Also in this entry is the entire radio and it can be listened in different parts. You can listen to the whole 2 hours, hour 1 or hour 2.
Since it’s still the Summer, the interview that was re-aired was the You Say Party! We Say Die! interview. Reason for re-airing it was that they are back as You Say Party since the passing of their drummer in April. I played a couple of tracks from Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs, one song that I played caught my interest, it’s Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains). This song brings an 80s new wave style and it’s different than the usual style of Arcade Fire songs.
The second hour was mainly on Faye Wong as her birthday’s on August 8 and it was fitting to play her greatest hits. It also included playing the love song to Final Fantasy VIII, Eyes On Me.
