The Decemberists that make the leap from No. 12 to the top spot at CMJ’s Radio 200 this week, knocking Cee-Lo down to No. 6. Britsh Sea Power’s Valhalla Dancehall (Rough Trade) is this top mover of the week, jumping over 60 spots, from No. 172 to No. 10. And, new to the chart, and right on BSP’s heels at No. 11, is post-punk politico Gang Of Four’s first new record in 16 years, Content (Yep Roc).
Despite new No. 1s at Triple A (Decemberists, natch) and Loud Rock (Cradle Of Filth), the genre charts remain relatively stagnant. Destroyer’s Kaputt, gracing the cover, is the most added album of the week.
