I have to keep things short here. But you're probably ok with that. You probably skip over this part anyway.

Congratulations to Johnny Marr on his new album Playland being #1 in its first full week out! And for  the third week in a row no one can stop TV On The Radio from taking the top spot on the singles chart with "Happy Idiot," but also, thanks to a few spins of its next single, their forthcoming album Seeds debuts at #2 on the album chart. I'm happy to see Dreamers' "Wolves" as the #2 single this week. It seems like just yesterday that I was championing that tune to all of you before anyone had heard of it. So proud…

Other names that you'll see on both charts this week include Stars, Nude Beach, Francisco The Man, and Jaws. So check out the whole deal at FMQB.com/SubModern. And please please please try to send me your playlists by Tuesdays. You'll make my life so much easier. Thanks!  I'll catch you all next week.

The name A. Sinclair may seem new to you, but the A. is for Aaron and Aaron Sinclair has been around for quite some time now, in various bands like Frank Smith, The Lot Six, and Drexel, dating back to the early oughts. He's been a well known fixture in Boston and his home state of Texas, where he recently returned to start fresh. Now an Austin resident, A. Sinclair has just released his latest album Pretty Girls digitally (and interestingly the physical vinyl release only has half the songs).

Oddly even with a "new identity" (his own), Sinclair's band remains the same as it was when he went by Frank Smith. But the sound has changed tremendously. Eschewing acoustic guitars in favor of electric with distortion and even some interesting keyboard sounds, especially on the single "How Many Ways." Other rollicking highlights include "Shiny Things," "Suit Up," and "Pretty Girls In Pretty Tights."

Aside from an Austin release show on Mischief Night, A. Sinclair doesn't have any announced tour dates, but I have it good authority that we'll all have the chance to check them out soon. Keep your eyes on ASinclairMusic.com for dates and find out more from Dangerbird Records.
