The R3-30: Radio 3’s top 30 songs for the week of August 15, 2016

Editorial Staff

Indie pop duo Snowblink is back with a new song called "Feel Like A Man" is the highest debut on our top 30 this week. We haven't heard new music from them since 2012's much-loved Inner Classics. Their upcoming album, due out on September 9, is called Returning Current.

Another notable debut we have this week is from Preoccupations—formerly known as Viet Cong (in case you've been living under a rock for the year or so, the band faced accusations of racism and cultural appropration over their original name and opted to change it in April). Their first album under their new name is scheduled for release on September 16 via Flemish Eye. "Anxiety" is the first single from the album and it debuts at #29 on our chart.

Other new songs joining the chart this week include "Fade In My Heart" from Weird Lines and "Moon Queen" from Slow Down Molasses. At the top, White Lung takes over in the number one spot with "Below" from their excellent album Paradise, which came out in May and is one of the best Canadian releases we've heard so far this year. See the full listing for the top 30 chart below.
