The Subject Radio Top 30 – November 13, 2023

Check out our Top 30 artists and albums on Subject Radio, for the week of 11/6 – 11/12

It’s a big day for Londoners Bombay Bicyle Club who are surely popping bottles somewhere for their latest batch of indie pop goodness topping an internet radio station out of Buffalo, New York… for a second straight week. Local up-and-comers Del Paxton, who are getting some love from national press for their latest emocore record on Topshelf, slip back down to 3, making room for legendary NYC rockers The Kills to move up to the second spot. WRUB actually hosted a show of the latter’s lead singer’s punk-ska band from the ’90s Discount way back when.

Jess Corazza and Pat Morrissey (no relation) came from the heartland to NYC to form the experimental pop duo ill peach. Their Hardly Art/Sub Pop record is our top debut of the week at 13. Meanwhile, everyone knows the best ska comes from the Magnolia State and the excellently named Flying Racoon Suit bow in at 25.

You can hear the 30 records below — with 220+ other records currently in rotation — here on sUBject. And also here’s a Spotify playlist featuring two songs from every album!

Did you know that Alice Cooper was originally the name of the band, but at some point in the 1970s, lead singer Vincent Furnier gave in and embraced the old witch’s name as his own. Pip Blom, frontwoman of Dutch band Pip Blom, was already named Pip Blom, however. The more you know {cue cheesy fanfare}. Here’s some of their sweet hook-laden indie pop that has bewitched both us and the world at large in duet with Scottish singer Alex Kapranos who should probably not take his band’s ill-fated, WWI unintentionally starting namesake:
