The Chart Show: Keys Kick Off Tour at the Top

Buoyed by the offer of tickets for their Sept 28th show at Target Center, The Black Keys grab the top spot. Apparently their five year hiatus wasn't really because they hated each other, but the video for "Go" plays on that idea in a very amusing way. The tour kicks off next week in L.A.

Up two places this week to #3, a number he likes to wear on his baseball caps, Chance The Rapper has decided NOT to start his tour this fall, but to take a maternity leave until 2020 instead, saying he needs to be with his wife after they had Marli their second daughter.

The second highest new entry at four is Bon Iver, playing the Xcel with Feist on Oct 3rd they just added Europe to the itinerary with some of their biggest shows yet, including Wembley Arena in London April 26th.

Trying to redesign the country music industry, The Highwomen supergroup climb another two places to seven and it's our Album of the Week.

Coming in at #12, Lana Del Rey gets featured this week in the NME's Big Read. This is a series of longer interviews that are usually highly entertaining and informative. Lana dishes up pearls of wisdom about the themes of the new album that came out last week. And of course her relationships with Miley, Ariana and Jack Antonoff, who produced it.

What song was sampled to fuel the collaboration between DJ Shadow and De La Soul in at #13? I can't believe I haven't realized it's an acapella version of a big hit from 1969 which became an even bigger terrace song for football fans, Steam's "Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)." Shadow tells the story of its discovery on his webpage and promises a full album later this year.

Slipping eleven places to 314 this week, Of Monsters and Men will be at Surly Brewing Festival Field this Saturday along with Lower Dens, tickets are still available.

The new album from the Pixies comes out this Friday, 'Beneath The Eyrie' and they're up 5 places from the basement. They recorded in the UK and start their world tour there, then move to Europe and Asia, so no new USA dates until at least April next year.

Coming to the Fitzgerald Theater on Nov 5th, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band are new at seventeen. They've just made a movie and an album about their trip to Cuba.

On Oct 11th, one of my fave labels of all time 4AD will release the second full album this year from Big Thief. It was recorded around the same time as their last 'UFOF' but in a different space and with different intent.

Their First Avenue show this weekend is sold out, and Hot Chip are back at nineteen with another song from "A Bathful of Ecstasy", perhaps my favorite album title of the year so far! If you can't get in, maybe this 2012 in-studio session that they did for us will be a satisfactory replacement.

The new album "In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights" from The New Pornographers comes out September 27th. They play Madison that night and First Avenue on October 1st and they enter the chart at #20 this week.
