KZUU Top 30: 1/28/11

These are the kind of charts I like to see! A good combination of new music and KZUU favorites make up the top charts this week. Last week’s #1, No Age falls five spots to #6, “Band of the Week” Minks debuts at #4 and this week’s #1 is Ducktails!

Matthew Mondanile (who also plays guitar in the awesome psych-surf band Real Estate) released his newest album earlier this month. Titled Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, it does really remind you of pumping quarters into a skee ball machine in a noisy arcade. It’s got a lo-fi home recorded vibe with plenty of reverb, which is the type of music that warms you up inside. You know, it’s been getting slightly warmer lately. I wonder if that’s being reflected in the music being played? Regardless, you all were apparently digging “Hamilton Road” and “Killin’ the Vibe” since those two songs alone racked up nearly half the Ducktails plays this week! Killer job everybody, I love seeing the newer albums on these lists as well. Stay tuned for some really really fantastic new adds on Monday!
