Last week's massive HOF induction and Pulp dropping off after three weeks made room for a record breaking five new entries (four of whom have never been on the chart before)!
Atmosphere are the odd guys out — they've done everything before, including The Welcome To MN Tour. Alt-J did well to hold off the rampaging Macklemore, but they couldn't win a Brit on Wednesday after being nominated for this year's British Breakthrough Act. Lots of the winners — Mumfords, Adele, Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey and Emeli Sande — can be heard on The Current, and Alt-J pointed out that the Brits (like our Grammys) are a lot more "Alternative' these days ... so it's NOT alternative anymore, right?!
