Jack White would be a good bet to win the Top 89, he's spent more time on the chart than anyone. But it is still a close race so get your votes in!

Both the Aussies who cantered on to the chart last week go up through the field, but the outsider Atlas Genius does better than the much fancied Tame Impala.

A few surprise falls too for Lana and Atoms For Peace, both dropping out completely and The Tallest Man on Earth and Frank Ocean suffering as if going lame ... OK enough of the racehorse analogy!

Both new entries booked shows in First Avenue next year, Django Django on March 16th and Stars, March 26th. Congrats to P.O.S. for making it on to the cover of City Pages, again. Their review of the year in music proves, again, that it was golden!
