The Wild 10 Countdown for November 9, 2011

As mentioned at the main blog that the Funding Drive is done and over  with for another year. After being number one for the 6th week, How Come You Never Go There by Feist is going to be retired. The top 5 songs haven’t moved for another week as they’re getting lots of plays on various radio shows. Blonde by Coeur De Pirate, the second album  came out this past week and it’s getting a lot of attention on iTunes and social media. There’s only one new entry and it’s Said The Whale as they released a new EP called New Brighton.
Here’s the top 10.

1. How Come You Never Go There – Feist (6 weeks at #1)

The Wild 10 Countdown for November 2, 2011

For the fifth week on top, Feist continues to stay at number one. It seems like there’s no stopping Feist and her excellent album, Metals. Also getting some airplays are Kathleen Edwards for Change The Sheets and Coeur De Pirate for Adieu. Blonde by Coeur De Pirate will be out sometime this month. There are a few new entries from The Wooden Sky and Yukon Blonde. Yukon Blonde seems to be getting some plays on various radio shows.
Dan Mangan and Ohbijou are still going strong as they’re still getting a lot of plays. A bit of unique irony for the countdown, four out of five on the top 5 are mainly filled by female artists and bands.
In case if you’re wondering which radio shows I follow in compiling the top 10, they are The Strombo Show, A Juncture, Now Playing on CHUO, Thursday Special Blend, Looking Good For Radio and Whatever’s Cool With Me. Then the occasional and random listenings on CBC Radio programs.

1. How Come You Never Go There – Feist (5th Week at #1)

2. Change The Sheets – Kathleen Edwards

3. Adieu – Coeur De Pirate

2. Swift CoinLand of Talk (Steady. Cloak and Cipher will be released on August 24th, it will be a long wait)

This week’s radio show had 2 “best of” interviews from The Wooden Sky and The Belle Game, which were aired early this year. There were a few more songs that were played on Degrassi. The playlist is available at this link as I had to enter the songs all over again.
