Each week the CMJ staff sifts through thousands of radio playlists that contribute to the weekly CMJ charts. In the Chart Discovery column, we highlight exciting artists, albums, and songs brought to our attention by the charts of our reporting panel of college and non-commercial radio stations. This round’s favorites come to us via WUOG in Athens, GA, and WPRB in Princeton, NJ.

Muuy Biien on WUOG

A mix of steady-build reflective ambiance and angst-laden angular action, Athens punks Muuy Biien’s D.I.Y., newly released on HHBTM, was sitting pretty at the No. 1 spot on the always-local-scene-supporting WUOG’s charts.

Connections on WPRB

Connections hearken back to the half-gleeful/half-broody alt-pop of the early-mid ’90s. Their tunes travel from their hometown, Columbus, Ohio, to Princeton, NJ, with their January release, Year One (a comp of their first two albums on the great Anyway Records label), charting at No. 27 on WPRB.
