New entries:

Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats have a raging thirst in one of this week's highest new entries: "S.O.B" in at #5. 

Ben Caplan's new album, Birds With Broken Wings, drops this weekend and the first single called "40 Days & 40 Nights" sits at #16.

With "Spirits," The Strumbellas have the highest new entry this week at #4 on the chart. 

Biggest movers:

Leaping up the chart eleven places to #9 is Nashville's Rayland Baxter, who wrote a beautiful break-up song inspired by a bent-up paper clip that his girlfriend left behind on his kitchen counter.

Up an incredible ten places to #8 is Halifax's Quiet Parade, with "We Were Here." In our opinion, the song perfectly captures the feeling of driving through rural terrain.

The Nation's New Number 1:

Vance Joy once had a promising career as an Aussie Rules football player, but  gave it all up to become a singer. By the sound of his fragile voice, you’d never guess that once upon a time he’d tackle you to the ground to steal your pigskin. At #1 this week, it's Vance Joy with “Fire And The Flood.”
