New Music United Top 20 Chart (April 27, 2012)

Scroll down to content

Here are the 20 most popular blog singles on New Music United this week with notes by the editor:

  • A new blog single from The Beach Boys in the top five. I have to admit that I did not see that coming. It is probably their best single in 40 years, though!
  • Lots of great stuff from Record Store Day on the chart: Public Image Ltd, Brad, St. Vincent, Sigur Ros and Beach House.
  • As always, the Danish artists are well represented on the NMU chart: Choir Of Young Believers, Anders Trentemøller and The Raveonettes are some of the best artists from my tiny little home country with big stars.
  • Classic tracks from Steely Dan, Abba, Roxy Music and Duran Duran are steady fan favourites on the chart.
  • R. Stevie Moore (also part of a Record Store Day release) is an “NMU Darling”. Oh, and he is playing Roskilde Festival 2012!
