New #1 this week! NONONO — two producers, Tobias "Astma" Jimson and Michel Rocwell and a psychiatric nurse, Stina Wäppling — are the latest in a long line of Swedish pop hit-makers. The Stockholm-based electropop group are about to dip their toes into live shows in America at NYC's Mercury Lounge next Tuesday, Oct. 15, and in L.A.'s Echo on Thursday, Oct. 25.

NONONO stopped Lorde from ending her first run on the chart at the top. "Royals" is now inducted to our the Chart Show Hall of Fame along with Franz Ferdinand's "Right Action". Next week three others should be inducted, so major change is imminent. Will Arcade Fire find their way to the #1 spot? Will Janelle Monae build on her surge into the chart next week? It's up to you!

Vote now and become a member of Minnesota Public Radio if you can. Become a sustaining member for $10/month and you'll get Live Current Vol. 9! We literally couldn't make this chart or keep the station going without you!

Submit your Chart Show ballot for a chance to see Frank Turner perform at the Varsity Theater on Oct. 28!

Highest new entry this week is Janelle Monae's "Givin' Em What They Want" feat. Prince. She'll be performing at the Skyway Theater on Tuesday, Oct. 22. Will Prince show up to sing the duet?!?

The Head and the Heart made good headway, and they have two shows planned for First Avenue on Oct. 26 and 27. Jake Bugg just announced another show at First Avenue, too. He'll play the mainroom on Jan. 17, 2014.

HAIM will be part of the massive, sold-out Austin City Limits Festival this weekend, which is broadcast online this year, then they go off supporting Phoenix over in Europe and start the New Year with our Aussie posse as part of the traveling St. Jerome's Laneway Festival.

We lost The Suburbs after eight weeks, Neko Case after two and Savages, again. Nine Inch Nails are back with perhaps the most openly autobiographical song from the new album, "Copy of A", and Avett Brothers return after another long wait. No show planned for the Twin Cities yet, but you can road-trip to Green Bay, Wis., on Nov. 21 or to Chicago on Nov. 22. Catch up with their Leno appearance this week right here.
