Chart Notes:

  • Displacing Sheppard at #1 after two weeks at the top is the quartet originally from Boston, now based in Brooklyn. American Authors are having a pretty great day with “Best Day Of My Life”, up 2-1, becoming the band’s first number one single on my survey. They’re currently on tour with Misterwives and The Royal Concept as they play up the East Coast this week.
  • Taking a leap from 37-30 is the Biggest Mover on the countdown, “Let Me Go” by Take That vocalist and X Factor U.K. judge Gary Barlow. Last time around, the quintet got as high as #18 in the fall of 2011 with “When We Were Young”. His first solo album in 14 years, Since I Saw You Last, is out next week.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is in at #38 by an act who I wasn’t sure would ever make my chart again. Back in 2010, “Hurtful” by a then 21-year-old Erik Hassle went as high as #8 and then he fell off my radar… until a few weeks ago. The now 25-year-old’s second single to make my top 40, “Talk About It”, was recently issued digitally on his new U.S. home, RCA Records.
  • 20-year-old Taylor Henderson becomes the first ever X Factor Australia act to rank in my top 40; his debut single, “Borrow My Heart”, debuts at #39. His self-titled album, featuring “Borrow” and ten cover songs as performed on the show, is released in Australia on November 29.
  • Finally, this week’s #40 debut belongs to newcomers Smallpools with “Over & Over”. Based in New Jersey, they made a minor dent on the Alternative chart earlier this year with “Dreaming”. This followup to it goes to radio in January.
