I like when a band I write about or feature has something good happen to them and that’s the case with The Weepies,
whose new album made the Top 10 this week. They recently took part in Lilith Fair and announced a run of dates that will keep them on the road through November. Their album Be My Thrill comes in at #8 this week.
Topping the album chart this week are hard rockers Disturbed, whose new album has the apt title Asylum. Goo Goo Golls’ new album also gets a slot in the Top 10 as does the latest and presumably – if the title can be believed – last installment from Disney’s Camp Rock 2. Ray LaMontagne continues to hold his spot near the lower reaches of the Top 10. Another titan of the indie rock movement, Arcade Fire, also remains.
On the singles end, not much has changed. Ke$ha had been all over these charts for awhile with a pair of huge hit singles and her latest is represented here but Katy Perry continues to be the “it” thing of the moment where singles are concerned. Taylor Swift is another female hit powerhouse and her single “Mine” is here as well.
Here are the Top 10 singles and albums, yours if you want them.
