AMF Chart Week 9 2015

Post by Setherex » Sun Mar 01, 2015 8:00 pm

Welcome to Week 9 of the AMF Chart! The chart where we're cautiously spending time without the poll being full of Kanye songs... yet...

Here are your rankings for Week 8 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. Björk - "Black Lake" (5)
2. Sleater-Kinney - "No Cities to Love" (3)
3. Father John Misty - "I Love You, Honeybear" (2)
4. Belle and Sebastian - "Nobody's Empire" (7)
5. Chromatics - "Just Like You" (1)
6. Ibeyi - "River" (2)
6. Kendrick Lamar - "The Blacker the Berry" (2)
8. Courtney Barnett - "Pedestrian at Best" (4)
9. Africa Express - "In C Mali" (1)
9. Father John Misty - "Strange Encounter" (1)
9. Sufjan Stevens - "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross" (1)
12. Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "Multi-Love" (3)
13. Natalie Prass - "It Is You" (4)
14. Zola Jesus - "Compass" (1)
15. Pond - "Elvis' Flaming Star" (2)
16. Alabama Shakes - "Don't Wanna Fight" (1)
16. Denai Moore - "Blame" (1)
16. Florence + The Machine - "What Kind of Man" (1)
16. Natalia Lafourcade - "Hasta la Raíz" (1)
20. Siska - "Unconditional Rebel" (1)
Total Votes: 85

Impressive that a 40-minute long song made it through the week. Barely, mind you all, and with a tie to drag it along, but still. Honestly, I haven't listened to it in its entirety yet, but I'll correct that soon enough. Any piece of music that can knock out Alabama Shakes and Florence has to be a winner, right? Due to the tie for 9th place, the top 11 songs from last week's chart went on to this week's.

2015 Chart-Toppers by Week (by vote count, not chart position; total weeks atop chart in parentheses):
1. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (2) / Kanye West feat. Paul McCartney - "Only One"
2. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (3)
3. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (4)
4. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (5) / Belle and Sebastian - "Nobody's Empire"
5. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (6)
6. Belle and Sebastian - "Nobody's Empire" (2)
7. Björk - "Black Lake"
8. Björk - "Black Lake" (2)

2014 Hall of Fame (10 weeks of advancing votes; automatically retired from chart):
St. Vincent - "Digital Witness" (Week 1-14)
Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (Week 1-11)
Sun Kil Moon - "Richard Ramirez Died Today of Natural Causes" (Week 2-14)
tUnE-yArDs - "Water Fountain" (Week 9-18)
Future Islands - "Seasons (Waiting on You)" (Week 10-19)
The War on Drugs - "Under the Pressure" (Week 10-19)
Lana Del Rey - "West Coast" (Week 15-24)
The Black Keys - "Weight of Love" (Week 16-25)
Owen Pallett - "The Riverbed" (Week 17-26)
Jon Allen - "Night and Day" (Week 18-27)
First Aid Kit - "My Silver Lining" (Week 19-28)
Spoon - "Do You" (Week 22-31)
Interpol - "All the Rage Back Home" (Week 25-34)
Röyksopp & Robyn - "Every Little Thing" (Week 27-36)
Sun Kil Moon - "Micheline" (Week 28-37)
Leonard Cohen - "Almost Like the Blues" (Week 31-40)
Sharon Van Etten - "Our Love" (Week 31-40)
Spoon - "Outlier" (33-42)
Sharon Van Etten - "Every Time the Sun Comes Up" (41-4)
Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (43-6)
Sharon Van Etten - "Your Love Is Killing Me" (44-7)

Songs that entered the chart in 2014 will be added to the 2014 Hall of Fame, rather than the 2015 Hall of Fame.

Here is this week's 18-song Spotify chart (with 2 songs included below via YouTube link):

Here is your 2015 AMF Chart playlist of all songs on the chart so far this year:


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 UTC as I can make it. Best of voting! :D

Also, apologies to Rdwdbob - it appears that Kopecky's "Are You Listening" dates back to around 2013. Not that I check nomination dates very often, but I was curious in this case. Sorry! Please always supply us with more noms, though. You, as well as everyone else, are particularly good at it :)

Is that kind of like all the kids in Lake Woebegon being "above average"? :whistle:

I'll nominate Lake Huron's "The Night We Met" as I just missed the cut off last week.

By that logic, you're all very strong and good looking too. But don't take it from me ;)

A million thanks to you once more, Andre, for doing the work I'm far too lazy to.

Two weeks ago there were 3 female nominations from my side. None of them survived the first week ... you should all be ashamed of yourself :angry-nono:

No nominations last week since down hill skiing had my focus.

This week, let's try these 3 male nominations:
1. Viet Cong - Continental Shelf
2. The Tallest Man On Earth - Sagres
3. Calexico - Falling From The Sky

I would like to nominate Aina mun pitää by Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät. It's a punk song by a retarded band, but they're actually very professional. It was just selected as Finland's entry to Eurovision.
I feel like that

No apologies necessary Setherex, (wow! try saying that ten times fast!). My bad for trusting iTunes on their release dates. Here are a couple that I am 100% positive are newbies:

Blur - 'Go Out'
Noel Gallagher - 'Ballad Of The Mighty I'

I'd like to nominate "I Really Like You" by Carly Rae Jepsen. She's done it again, gentlemen.

The song of course is by Lord Huron. Lake Huron is probably still frozen solid.

A million times, yes.

Reminder to get your votes, nominations, and seconding of nominations in before the new poll tomorrow.

In a week of so many favorites it's hard to choose... I choose:
Courtney Barnett - "Depreston"
Kelela - "A Message"
Chromatics - "I Can Never Be Myself When You're Around"
