Welcome to summer everyone! It's perhaps the best time of the year for music discovery with festival season in full swing and checking out new tunes on long road trips with the windows down. It's up to all of us here in the SubModern world to help people find those perfect songs to soundtrack the summer. Perhaps some of those will be found on this week's charts.

Both of last week's #1's have been unseated, one by a perennial favorite of the last not-quite decade, and the other by a new up-and-comer. That's right, knocking The Strokes off of their perch of three weeks is a band that I've been championing for some time now, Weaves! I'm very happy to see that so many of you are digging the quirky sound of their self-titled debut full length as much as I am.  On the singles side of things, it's not nearly as much of a surprise to see Phantogram take the top spot with the debut of "You Don't Get Me High Anymore," the lead single to their upcoming third full length album.

Last week's #1, "Beautiful Thing" from The Stone Roses slips a bit to #4, followed by a tie at #5 involving another legendary band returning after a long hiatus, Descendents. Their new single "Victim of Me," from their upcoming first album in a dozen years, ties with White Lung's "Below."

With its physical release on Friday supported by listening events at record stores all over the world, Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Pool climbs back up the album chart to #2. That's followed by a three way tie for #3 between Deerhoof's The Magic, The Kills' Ash & Ice, and Danish newcomers Yung's A Youthful Dream, which also spawns #7 single "Pills." Another pair of artists appearing on both charts are tied here at #6 – the both aforementioned White Lung with Paradise and The Strokes' Future Present Past EP. That leaves a band whose name I loathe saying and even typing, Diarrhea Planet, at #8 with their new album Turn To Gold (seriously guys, change your name), and a three way tie at #9.  I'll let you check that out on the charts below and see the full charts at FMQB.com/SubModern.

That's it for today. If you missed our SubModern Session and interview with Caveman from last week, you can go back and read/hear it here. I'll be back next time with fireworks in hand as we get ready for 4th of July weekend!
