This week’s countdown had no new debuts, there were a few movers and shakers for the Wild 10. This was the second and final Funding Drive Show edition and I had no assistance because of other factors happening. I’m pleased with the donations during the countdown and around the second hour of the show. Without further ado, here’s the top 10.
1. Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) – Arcade Fire (3rd week at #1. They will be the musical guest on SNL for November 13th).
2. Constellation – Jim Bryson & The Weakerthans (Steady at #2. He’s still getting airplay on various CKCU shows)
3. Something Else – Diamond Rings (Going up. He’s getting so much buzz because of the release of Special Affections. Expect the interview to be airing next week.)
4. The Hair Song – Black Mountain (Going down.)
5. Not The Stars – Allie Hughes (Going up. She’s playing a couple of shows. Still one of my picks as she’s not getting airplay elsewhere)
6. We, Myself, And I – Shad (Going down. It’s off the big 5 as I am now calling it)
7. Serious Bedtime – The Balconies (Going up. They will be in town for a show on Friday night)
8. Red Lights – Holy Fuck (Going up. Still digging the music video with the cats)
9. Quarry Hymns – Land of Talk (Going down. Forgot to mention that their tour is resuming)
10. Surf’s Up – Winchester Warm (Steady. They are opening up for Jim Bryson for his Christmas show at The Black Sheep Inn in December)
You can listen to the countdown from the first hour and the second hour of the radio show by pressing play.
Hour 1 – The countdown
Hour 2 – Make sure you listen to it right away as it won’t be on for long.
