KZUU Top 30: 3/4/11

This week’s number one artist didn’t have to travel too far to steal the top slot away. Gathered Ghosts, AKA Yarn Owl/Craft Spells member and former KZUU Music Director Javier Suarez took #1 this week by a large margin, partly due to the awesome house show he played last Friday, and party due to how absolutely fantastic his music his. If you don’t believe me, Jav took out Cut Copy, Cloud Nothings and James Blake without even releasing an album. His Sampler basically includes some demos and in-progress songs. If that doesn’t speak to the quality of songwriting, I don’t know what does.

In other charting news, Cut Copy stayed strong, coming in at #2. Toro y Moi and Yuck came in #6 and #7, respectively. Ghost Animal, a Portland band (and friends of KZUU) spent their first week in the charts at #14. James Blake‘s self-titled debut lost a little steam, coming in at #16. All in all, a great week guys. Keep an eye out for even more new music on Monday!
