Hype Chart Exploration: July – Oct 2014


The Last.fm Hype Charts (Hyped Artists and Hyped Tracks) are a fascinating insight into the rising artists amongst Last.fm users worldwide. Acts with the biggest increase in listeners week-on-week take up the top positions and if you really want to dig deep, you can filter down by tag and location. Fancy knowing the latest hyped black metal artists in Spain? We’ve got you covered.

Every now and then it’s time for us to reflect, and so with that we’ve created a Spotify playlist of a selection of the artists who have occupied the top spots of the overall global Hype Charts across July to October.

From the highly acclaimed collaboration of Scott Walker and doom metal pioneers Sunn O))) to the rousing indie/emo of From Indian Lakes all the way through to the anxiety-inducing glitch techno of Objekt and the beautiful lo-fi fuzz of Honeyblood, the playlist showcases the vast tastes of Last.fm scrobblers worldwide.
