Welcome to the end of summertime. Back to homework, books, and teachers' dirty looks... unless of course you're an adult like most of us, in which case summer ends on September 22nd, so enjoy the rest of it.

In what may be a first during my tenure on the SubModern charts, both of last week's #1's have retained their positions! So congrats once again to The Dead Weather, with "I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)," and Beach House, with Depression Cherry. But we do have new #2's on both charts, so let's congratulate them as well. Foals' 4th album What Went Down is finally out and received airplay on over half of its ten tracks. On the singles side, I'm really happy for Philadelphia's next great export, Beach Slang, with the debut of "Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas."

Continuing down the album chart we find veterans Yo La Tengo at #3 with their latest record Stuff Like That There, where they cover other artists as well as re-recording some of their own old songs. Last week's Buzz Band The Bohicas show up at #4 with The Making Of and Missouri punks Radkey debut at #5 with Dark Black Makeup. There's a three way tie for #6 between Craig Finn's Faith In The Future, Paul Smith & The Intimations' Contradictions, and Public Image Ltd.'s What The World Needs Now. Finally the top ten closes out with a tie between Mont Royal from The Lighthouse and The Whaler and Beverly Hells from this week's Buzz Band SWIMM.

Back to singles, we have ties all the way down the chart, starting at #3 between Courtney Barnett's "Nobody Really Cares If You Don't Go To The Party" and Youth Lagoon's "Highway Patrol Stun Gun." Yacht and El Vy vie for #5 with their tunes "I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler" and "Return To The Moon" while Darwin Deez and Potty Mouth tough it out for #7 with "Kill Your Attitude" and "Cherry Picking." And finally we reach end of the top 10 with a three way tie between Maritime's "Satellite Love," The Neighbourhood's "R.I.P. 2 My Youth," and the aforementioned Yo La Tengo's cover of The Cure's "Friday I'm In Love."

Find all of the above on the charts below and even more at FMQB.com/SubModern. Have a great Labor Day weekend everyone (and please let me know if your show is not going to be on)!

Let's face it, Florida is not a breeding ground for really good indie rock bands (with apologies to Surfer Blood). But I'm happy to say that The Sunshine State has a little more indie cred with the release of SWIMM's sophomore EP, Beverly Hells (even though the duo recently moved to L.A.).

The six song EP runs the gamut from the more straightforward rock tunes like single "Belly" and "Topanga," to the strummy War On Drugs-eque opening title track, the Caribbean sound of "All The Time," the spaced out "Shoulda Coulda," and psych / almost jammy closer "Suddenly," which sounds akin to something you might find on MGMT's recent albums.

SWIMM has been building a reputation lately by throwing a lot of DIY shows in L.A., but you'll be able to catch them on tour all over the U.S. and Canada this fall. Find out more and check out the video for the EP's title track at SWIMMmusic.com or RollCallRecords.com.
