Officially the last day of summer! Hope you're savoring it, or conversely embracing the coming of fall. Of course that means tons of new music is coming over the next couple of months and the club shows will be aplenty now that festival season is winding down. But what's on everybody's mind as the seasons change I'm sure is "What's happening on the specialty charts?" Let's find out.

First of all, last week's surprise singles chart topper Walker Lukens makes it two in a row with "Lifted" not losing any momentum. On the album chart however, there is a new #1 as LVL UP's Return To Love appropriately moves up a level from #2 (I'm sure I've made that joke before). That bumps those crazy Norwegians Death By Unga Bunga with their Fight! EP down into a tie for #2 with Natural Child's new album Okey Dokey. Local Natives continue to hang near the top with Sunlit Youth at #4 and we have two modern rock veterans tied for #5 - Pixies with their sixth album Head Carrier and Teenage Fanclub with their tenth Here. (For those keeping track of such things, Pixies first album was actually released two years before Teenage Fanclub's, but y'know they took that lengthy break.) Nice to see our old pals Beach Slang back on the album chart at #7 with their second album in less than a year, A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings. of Montreal keeps hanging in there with Innocence Reaches tied at #8 with Dawes' new release We're All Gonna Die, and then we wrap up with newcomer Lucy Dacus' No Burden at #10.

Back over on the singles chart, Public Access TV rises to #2 with "End Of An Era" and Grandaddy ticks up a spot to #3 with "Way We Won't." A couple of big ties fill out the rest of the top ten, the first of which at #4 takes up five spots with CRX, Jeff The Brotherhood, and Sylvan Esso mixing it up with album charters Death By Unga Bunga and Pixies. The second tie at #9 features singles from Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, Kings of Leon, and the aforementioned Natural Child.

That'll do it for this week's SubModern Report. I'll be back next week, hopefully with our next SubModern Session, featuring Weaves. Have a great equinox!
