AMF Weekly Chart 17.19

Post by spiritualized »

Here it is at last, instalment n° 19 of the Acclaimed Music Forum Chart !
Many thanks for your continuous votes : 138 votes last week :happy-partydance: :romance-kisscheek:

Noteworthy :

:scared-shocked: Direct to the top for the second week running, with The National new track. Blurb Below !
:scared-shocked: The chart sees two new entries - New Tracks from The National & LCD Soundsystem
:scared-shocked: Lorde makes it to the Hall of Fame
:scared-shocked: Kicked out : Kendrick Lamar : DUCKWORTH. (4 votes, 4 weeks)

Without further ado, here is your chart
Image


Please note that :

Songs from MacDemarco & Mark Lanegan Band following their entry in the Mcch will be featured next week. Songs from the new Afghan Whigs and Slowdive albums having already featured, I have not included them.



The Band : The National
Image


Heartfelt and quietly anthemic indie rockers whose sound takes in alt-country and chamber pop.


The Song : The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness

There’s a bit of Spoon in the song’s disjointed swagger, but the National retain the elegance that’s been their calling card since the Alligator days. Drummer Bryan Devendorf still finds unexpected patterns to propel Berninger’s understated melodies: the sneakers-in-a-dryer wallop of 1980s Grateful Dead might be the only thing the band’s retained from their recent Day of the Dead sessions. Here, they all sound more energized, jutting forward with a slick confidence. “I can’t explain it any other way,” Berninger repeats desperately in his highest register as the band hits the song’s emotional peak. Together, they sound wide awake and ready to fight away the darkness.
(Pitchfork)
