Greetings once again and welcome to another SubModern Report.  I know that some of you enjoyed the Pitchfork Festival this weekend, but I must say that I've enjoyed a pretty stellar line-up of bands right here in good old Philadelphia, PA over the last few days.  On Friday night I caught hometown bands Cheerleader and Cheers Elephant, on Sunday I had my face melted off by Queens of The Stone Age and Brody Dalle, and then just last night I was transported back to the 90's by Veruca Salt!  But enough about who I saw, let's talk about who got spins this week. 

As we get closer to their album release date, Spoon takes the #1 spot with They Want My Soul and has the #3 single "Do You."  Braid's No Coast moves up to take the #2 album position, while its single "East End Hollows" stayed put at #4t.  The #3 album is a brand new one from spacey Torontonians Alvvays (that's 2 V's, no W), whose single "Adult Diversion" also charts at #8t.  Last week's Buzz Band Jungle also features prominently on both charts with their self-titled record at #4 and single "Busy Earnin'" at #6t.  While not exactly an overlapping artist, we have an unusual circumstance where Nathan Willett of Cold War Kids and French Style Furs appears on both charts with the latter's album Is Exotic Bait at #5 and the former's brand new single "All This Could Be Yours" debuts at #4t.

Continuing down the album chart, we have the forthcoming Alt-J release This Is All Yours (not to be confused with that Cold War Kids single) tied for #6 with White Lung's Deep Fantasy.  Then tied three ways for #8 are Jenny LewisThe Voyager (out next week), Twin Peaks' Wild Onion (out this week), and Wunder Wunder's Everything Infinite (out last week).

Back over to singles, Interpol remains #1 with "All The Rage (Back Home)" from the forthcoming El Pintor.  The long absent Death From Above 1979 rises to #2 with "Trainwreck 1979" from their highly anticipated The Physical World.  Jumping down to our #6 and #8 ties, we have Delta Spirit's "From Now On" and J Mascis' "Every Morning" joining the aforementioned Jungle and Alvvays.  And finally Pepsi pitchmen (sorta) Team Spirit land at #10 with "Teenage Hearts" (drink more soda, get more diabetes).

Tis all for this week, except of course for all the stuff under this - add dates, charts, Buzz Band, copyright info, etc...

The fellas from Chicago rock outfit Twin Peaks weren't even alive when people were trying to figure out who killed Laura Palmer.  According to them, they just thought it sounded like a good name and there you have it.  So let's not focus on that.  When I first heard their single "Flavor," I sort of lumped these guys in with their hometown pals The Orwells.  While that's good company to keep, upon listening to their sophomore effort, Wild Onion, I realized that the sound of another band was coming to mind - The Rolling Stones.  While I'm no Stones expert, I've heard enough to know that singer Cadien Lake James is very reminiscent of Mick Jagger at times, and just listen to the guitar part at the beginning of "Making Breakfast."

Featuring 16 songs, there's a lot to choose from on Wild Onion, and you won't walk away feeling empty. You're hard pressed to go wrong with any of them, however singles "Flavor" and "I Found A New Way" do stand out, as well as "Strawberry Smoothie," "No Way Out," and "Good Lovin'." 

After impressing the crowd this weekend at Pitchfork Music Festival, Twin Peaks will release Wild Onion on August 5th and and hit the road with tour dates throughout August, September, and October in the U.S.  Find out more at TwinPeaksDudes.com and GrandJuryMusic.com.
