The charts show the top 30 most played albums at WVOF this week. These charts, submitted by college radio stations from all over the country, are used to compile the College Music Journal Top 200 weekly chart. CMJ represents the newest and best releases in college radio, and is a source of music and industry information, news, and reviews.


1. Quiet Life – “Wild Pack”

“Wild Pack” is an uptempo indie folk album, driven by tambourine, harmonica and steel guitar. The smooth Americana tone and poignant lyrics make the perfect soundtrack for a cross-country road trip and keep Quiet Life at the top of the charts this week.

2. Radical Face – “The Family Tree: The Branches”

“The Family Tree: The Branches” is the second installment of a 3-album project by Ben Cooper, the man behind Radical Face. Arguably more refined and cleaner than his previous works, “The Branches’ is filled with solid harmonies and piano work. The storytelling theme surrounding the entire project is really what makes this album worth a listen.

3. Chvrches – “The Bones Of What You Believe”

“The Bones Of What You Believe” is the Scottish trio’s debut full-length. Electro-pop at its finest, it lives up to the hype with its incredibly catchy hooks, sharp synth, and clear vocals.
