AMF Chart Week 34 2014

Postby Setherex » Sun Sep 28, 2014 10:40 pm

Welcome to Week 34 of the AMF Chart! The chart where I'm occasionally terribly late, but that's when the nominations begin flooding in, so it's allllllright with me.

Here are your rankings for Week 33 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. Leonard Cohen - "Almost Like the Blues" (3)
2. Spoon - "Outlier" (1)
3. Sharon Van Etten - "Our Love" (3)
4. Interpol - "All the Rage Back Home" (9)
5. Julian Casablancas + The Voidz - "Human Sadness" (1)
5. Robert Plant - "Embrace Another Fall" (1)
7. alt-J - "Every Other Freckle" (4)
8. Röyksopp & Robyn - "Every Little Thing" (7)
9. Sun Kil Moon - "Micheline" (6)
10. La Roux - "Uptight Downtown" (8)
11. Death From Above 1979 - "Gemini" (1)
11. The Juan Maclean - "A Place Called Space" (1)
11. Sinkane - "How We Be" (1)
11. Tove Lo feat. Hippie Sabotage - "Stay High (Habits Remix)" (1)
15. TV on the Radio - "Happy Idiot" (3)
16. J Mascis - "Wide Awake" (1)
16. YOB - "Unmask the Spectre" (1)
18. La Roux - "Let Me Down Gently" (2)
18. Robert Plant - "Rainbow" (2)
20. The Bad Plus - "Adopted Highway" (2)

The top 10 songs from this week went on to next week. Funny how bands like La Roux, Spoon and Sun Kil Moon so easily get some deeper cuts from their album to make the chart once their main singles have made it big. An interesting trend to follow, I'd say. And once again, we have a song that verges on making the hall of fame - though to be honest, not a song I would have guessed when I first heard it all those weeks ago.

2014 Chart-Toppers by Week (counting tie votes; number of weeks atop chart total in parentheses):
1. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - "Fuck Off Get Free (For the Island of Montreal)"
2. Damien Jurado - "Silver Timothy" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die"
3. Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (2)
4. Damien Jurado - "Silver Timothy" (2)
5. Young Fathers - "Get Up"
6. St. Vincent - "Digital Witness" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (3)
7. Sun Kil Moon - "Richard Ramirez Died Today of Natural Causes" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (4)
8. The War on Drugs - "Red Eyes" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (5)
9. Sun Kil Moon - "Richard Ramirez Died Today of Natural Causes" (2)
10. Sun Kil Moon - "Richard Ramirez Died Today of Natural Causes" (3)

Here is your 2014 AMF Chart playlist of all songs on the chart so far:


Thank you all for voting and nominating continuously every week! Please don't be afraid to supply us with nominations - all songs six months old and younger (or who have received promotion via album/video/single in the last six months) are accepted! And seconding nominations by others' gives those songs a better chance at making the next poll!

As per usual, the next poll will be created as close to Sunday at 19:00 GMT as I can make it. Best of voting! :D

Thank you, Setherex, for the continuously solid moderation.

I kind of nominated Almost Like The Blues for fun a few weeks ago, never really thinking it would become a big hit here. Now Leonard Cohen wins twice in a row, that's quite hilarious! :whistle:

This week I'll nominate:
Andy Stott - Violence
Cold War Kids - All This Could Be Yours
Ice Age - How Many (not sure if this had been nominated)
Lucinda Williams - Burning Bridges (I think the site lacks nominating country song, so here it goes)

Btw, could you by any chance inform us the list of songs nominated each week (I know it will be long), but sometimes I'm not sure if the songs I want to nominate had been here before or not.

The best way of doing that would be to check out the Spotify playlist of all songs in the chart so far listed on the first post - it has a surprising amount of them included, and I think I'll update it in the near future with songs not on Spotify similar to what Henrik has done with the main list. Hope it helps! ;)

My weekly reminder for votes, nominations, and seconding of nominations before the poll is recreated tomorrow at around 19:00GMT.

My nominations for the week:
Tinashe feat. Dev Hynes - "Bet"
Communions - "So Long Sun"
Maxo feat. GFOTY - "Not That Bad"
