Chris Ho takes the number one spot on the Wild 10 Countdown for this week. The reason for it has been that a particular radio show has been playing his song, Story of the Flood. Myself and co-host, Candice has been hooked on his music. City of Dust was released in January and some of his songs have been getting plays.
The new entries for this week’s countdown are Grounders and The Belle Game. Ritual Tradition Habit by The Belle Game is now released and the band got featured on Rolling Stone. Good on the band in getting some exposure.
Young Galaxy was number one last week on the countdown as their new album, Ultramarine just got released this week.
