Each week I post the Top 20 College Radio Albums courtesy of CMJ (College Media Journal). Below are also 5 discs that I have in heavy rotation and an album that amazingly turns 10 years old in 2015, I call it my Spicy 6.
My Morning Jacket knocks Alabama Shakes from the #1 spot on the College Radio Album Chart after fourth straight weeks at the top. Three new albums make their debut in the Top 20 including the latest effort from Cincinnati Ohio’s Heartless Bastards. The other two new entries are from the Wales five-piece Joanna Gruesome and the Los Angeles punk duo Girlpool (pictured).
The sophomore effort from Lord Huron is still my #1 compact disc. Speaking of My Morning Jacket, the Louisville, Kentucky rock band’s fourth studio album Z turns 10 years old in October. The track “Off The Record” was a popular tune off that album. Personally, I don’t understand what the big deal is with My Morning Jacket, I find their music quite boring.
