Here we are, back for another edition of the SubModern Report as we get closer and closer to the much needed Memorial Day holiday. Hopefully some much needed sunshine will come with it to our area. But we're not there yet, so let's look at this week's charts.

If you thought that Radiohead would be one and done, you were mistaken (not that I think anyone would have been under that impression). Of course A Moon Shaped Pool is the #1 album again! However, because so many different songs from the record were played, "Burn The Witch" does not retain the #1 position on the singles chart, falling to #8. Another inevitable contender takes its place at the top, leaps and bounds over all others - The Stone Roses! That's right, Ian Brown, John Squire, Mani, and Reni are back with their first new music in twenty-one years, "All For One." Was there anyone who didn't play it? Well, yeah, but they'll probably play it this week.

While not a total victory, a new supergroup called Minor Victories, made up of members of Editors, Slowdive, Mogwai, and more, certainly lived up to their name by making a top ten debut on both charts at #2 with their forthcoming self-titled album and single "Scattered Ashes." Still ahead of its release on June 3rd, The Kills' Ash & Ice is at #3 with its latest single "Heart Of A Dog" making its way up to #5. Also appearing on both charts are some Philadelphians (who I do not know), Modern Baseball with their latest album Holy Ghost at #4 and (Adam Sandler-inspired?) single "Wedding Singer" in a massive six-way tie for #9.

Some other as-yet-unmentioned singles to crack the top ten this week came from Local Natives with "Past Lives" continuing to hang out in the upper echelon at #3, a debut from New Zealand's Ladyhawke with "A Love Song" at #4, and a tie for #6 between Band of Horses with "Casual Party" and Beware of Darkness with "Dope."

Continuing down the week's top albums, two very different kinds of "punk" bands, White Lung and Mean Jeans, tie for #5 with their new releases Paradise and Tight New Dimension. Then out of nowhere, Matt and Kim show up with a new EP, We Were The Weirdos, at #7, and the top ten closes out with a three-way tie at #8 between Eagulls, The So So Glos, and Sulk.

Have a great week and I'll catch you back here before the long weekend.
