Maggie Rogers tops the chart and is inducted to the Hall of Fame for the very first time! Her debut album 'Heard It In A Past Life' drops next Friday and she's been tweeting details, lyrics and stories of the songs AND a link to a re-mix of this song done by Winston of Mumford and Sons!

Lake Street Dive are inducted for the second time, ending their 10 week run at #4. They started 2019 with a bang, another sold out show in Boston. They'll play more dates in Southern parts of USA for the rest of the month before going to Europe.

Chance The Rapper new at Number Ten went viral over the weekend with a video of him and Cookie Monster on Sesame Street, which inspired the Coffee Break yesterday!

Alice Merton had her break out with 'No Roots' nearly two years ago, so she's taken her time releasing 'Mint' her debut album which comes out next Friday. She's new at #11 and is our Album of the Week.

Charles Bradley makes one of the only posthumous entries we've had on the chart this week at #16, from the album 'Black Velvet' which is the name he used to perform under. You can find out more from Daptone, his record label, who late in his life, uncovered and supported this amazing artist.

Stella Donnelly returns to Number Nineteen this week after a break over the new year. She ended 2018 playing with her full band down under, as she told us when we had her do a session at Iceland Airwaves and she'll bring them on a World Tour in 2019, including March 30th at The Turf.

Pedro The Lion also return for the third week in total. they're new album is out next Friday too. 'Phoenix' is the title because it's where leader David Bazan spent some of his childhood and this song "Yellow Bike" is one of my faves right now as it describes the wonderful feeling of riding your first bike. But it's the line..."My kingdom for someone to ride with", that gets me every time. They play our latest Micro Show this Friday.
