Hello Pilgrims!

Are you ready for the holiday weekend? I think you'll be thankful that I keep this short today so that we can all head out early (maybe) and enjoy the long holiday weekend.

Just a quick look at the charts to once again congratulate TV On The Radio on their second week with the #1 SubModern album (and personally one of my favorites of the year), Seeds. Congrats as well to Sleater-Kinney who have spent the majority of the last month with the #1 single, "Bury Our Friends." This week they share the top spot with The Decemberists' latest, "Make You Better."

Crossing over on both charts this week we have Head of The Herd, who have the #2 album and #5t single, as well as Parquet Courts / Parkay Quarts (#3t on both) and Cold Fronts (#5t on both). Some notable newcomers in the top 10 albums include the Lorde curated ("ya ya ya") Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 soundtrack, 2:54's The Other I, and Smashing Pumpkins' Monuments To An Elegy, two weeks before its release.

Keep reading for the Top 10 charts (get the full Top 25 charts at FMQB.com/SubModern), add dates, and this week's Buzz Band feature on The Ting Tings' latest album. Attention specialty show hosts - please let me know if you're not having a show this weekend. Catch all your turkeys next time. Have a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving everyone!

I wasn't as down on The Ting Tings second album Sounds From Nowheresville as many people, but there's no argument that it certainly did not achieve the heights of its predecessor We Started Nothing. The third release from Katie White and Jules De Martino, Super Critical, comes a bit closer to delivering the kind of catchy dance pop tunes we fell in love with like "That's Not My Name" and "Shut Up And Let Me Go" without being a retread. There's more of an influence from 70's disco and funk this time around, evident in first single "Wrong Club."

Super Critical only offers us 9 songs in 31 minutes to get back into The Ting Tings' world, but gets us right into it with the title track. Other album highlights include "Only Love," "Failure," and "Do It Again."

With only a handful of U.S. shows in New York and California scheduled in January, we can only hope that The Ting Tings will expand their touring plans in the New Year. Find out more at TheTingTings.com.
