KZUU Top 30 — 4/26

That’s the Caribou bro outdoors somewhere. Yes, the new Dan Snaith album is quite good, in fact good enough to be this week’s #1, but I’d like to take this opportunity to comment on some other chart goings-on that I have noticed. First of all, Yesayer is #7, which raises the following question: “those guys  are still alive?” Good god it seems like that album came out (for Emma) forever ago. Same with Phantogram at #6. Glad to see Hot Chip is finally out of the Top 30 though. Those guys need to give it a rest. It’s also really cool that Free Energy is in the Top 10. I love this band, and yes I realize they are just a glorified OK Go, but whatevs, I love their energy (who knew?).

We’ll only do charts once more this semester, so please enjoy my sardonic commentary while it lasts.
