While the Decemberists ride out its sixth straight week as No. 1 on the Triple A chart, Radio 200 has bumped The King Is Dead down to No. 3 and passed the top spot on to Iron And Wine’s Kiss Each Other Clean. It should come as no surprise that Deerhoof, Mogwai, and Smith Westerns take the roles of No. 2, No. 4, and No. 5 after all three albums have cruised around the top five for the last few weeks.
Little has changed in Jazz and Hip-Hop with Joe Lovano Us Five and Gangrene leading their respective charts. Other notable chart appearances include Asobi Seksu’s (last week’s cover artist) move of 124 spots, finding itself at No. 20, La Sera’s debut at No. 40 with its self-titled LP and Motorhead’s move into the No. 1 spot on the Loud Rock chart. Also living up to the band’s highly esteemed reputation with their newest release, The King Of Limbs, Radiohead was, no surprise, most added this week.
