1. Julia Holter - "Sea Calls Me Home" (7)
2. Joanna Newsom - "Leaving the City" (5)

Total Votes: 101

Congratulations to Mbongwana Star's "Suzanna" and Deafheaven's "Brought to the Water" for both making our Hall of Fame. Two very unconventional choices, if I do say so myself, but two brilliant songs nonetheless. Also notable is the large number of votes last week - over a hundred! - for the rest time since the beginning of the year, at least. Many thanks to all of the familiar faces for returning to our competition, even if it does make the nomination pool become much more selective. Due to Mbongwana Star and Deafheaven's automatic retirement from the chart, as well as the three-way tie for 12th, the top 12 songs otherwise went through to this week's chart.

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

I will re-nominate Tindersticks' "We Are Dreamers", and since it's a non-MCCh week, let's add Library Voices' "Oh Donna"

My nominations for this week:
Benjamin Clementine - Nemesis (his debut album is right now nominated for Mercury Prize)
My Own Pet Radio - No Great Mystery (this song sounds so Wes Anderson-y, for the lack of proper term...)
Benjamin Booker - Violent Shiver (another Benjamin with another solid song)
Run the Jewels - Rubble Kings (Dynamite On The Street) [these guys are genius]

Don't get mad at me, but I'd like to nominate Lana Del Rey's "High By The Beach" if it hasn't already been here.

Thanks!

and speaking of Grimes; anybody notice that our version of REALiTi that made the 'Hall of Fame' is WAY better than the cut that made the album? WTF

The new poll will be made a bit late this week. But thank you all for so many votes! If anyone wanted to second /throw something into the mix in the mean time, would be perfectly alright.
