The Last.fm Hype Chart is generated by you, the listener. Your scrobbles determine just who are the true buzz artists of the moment, so read on to find out the latest top three this week.
Taking the #3 spot this week with a Hype Score of 647 is Gary War. Their latest album Jared’s Lot has been causing quite a stir in their latest top weekly tracks chart, with tracks such as “Thousand Yard Stare” listened to by 558 listeners last week. Their often psychedelic sound incorporates aspects of both rock and dance and tracks from the new album take them further into the murkier end of experimentalism.
Last week’s #1 drop down to 2 this week with the collaboration of Elton John vs Pnau getting a Hype Score of 1,031. The Australian duo were signed to Elton John’s management company on the strength of listening to their debut album PNAU. A collection of Elton John re-works entitled Good Morning to the Night followed. The track of the same name was listened to by 2,352 listeners last week with the project now totalling 52,770 scrobbles.
Hitting the #1 spot this week is another collaboration – this time in the form of Hudson Mohawke (Glasgow-based DJ) and Lunice (Montreal-based hip hop and beats connoisseur). Better known as TNGHT (pictured), the transatlantic duo have already mustered 101,711 scrobbles with the recent release of a self-titled EP. The tracks are getting some serious scrobble time, with unique listener counts from last week ranging from 2,667 for “Easy Easy” to 3,681 for club anthem “Higher Ground”.
