It's the first week at the top for Leon Bridges, who is touring with styles, Harry Styles to be exact! They're playing some arena shows this month in South America before Leon hits the European Festival circuit through July. Then on his own headlining tour in the USA he's bringing Khruangbin to The Palace Theater, on September 20, which is already sold out and the 21st.

Lord Huron crept up three more places to #2 this week and they'll be joining us at The MN State Fair Grandstand Saturday August 25th for our annual Music On-a-Stick Show. Tickets went on sale last Friday with Lissie opening and Trampled By Turtles headlining!

At Number Five after 5 weeks on the chart Lake Street Dive are at The Palace this Thursday night and hopefully will stop by that afternoon for a session.

CHVRCHES are back with the second song to chart from the new album. They've also added a second show at The Palace October 2nd after the October 3rd show sold out fast!

Feist is new at #13 and we're incredibly lucky to have her on the bill for Rock The Garden this year. She's only playing a handful of shows in Canada through May and then our gig, before going to Europe for a few festivals.

Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest continues to set his own high standards, even when playing The Jimmy Fallon show. He explained to the audience mid-performance that they were getting a Late Show short version of the song that comes in at #19 this week.

Beach House are in the basement with the first song we are playing from their new '7' album which came out last Friday and is our Album of the Week. Big fan Mac Wilson reviews it and finds that not only is this the 7th album they've released BUT it contains enough songs to bring their overall output to 77?! Weird.
