Yesterday we reported that the 'Modern Mythology' EP entered the North American College and Community Radio Chart (NACC) as the 16th most added album which covers the U.S and Canada. Today we learn that specialty commercial radio shows are just as enthusiastic about the band where its debut EP sits at #10 in the SubModern album airplay charts and #26 for its debut single, 'Stop.'
Interestingly, LIPSTEREO's debut EP sits three places below fellow antipodeans, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Below LIPSTEREO at #20 in album spins is English pop rock band, The 1975 with 'Being Funny In A Foreign Language' and at #23 is English rock band, Arctic Monkeys with 'The Car.'
The FMQB SubModern panel is made up of around 100 Commercial Alternative, Triple A & Non-Commercial radio stations across the U.S and Canada. The overall charts include spins from individual show playlists at reporting stations. The panel includes influential stations like WFUV [New York, NY], WNRN [Charlottesville, VA],& WXRT in Chicago, IL.
Commercial "specialty" radio covers any show on a commercial station featuring music outside of the station norm. Most commercial stations allocate one or two hours per week for specialty programming, where the host has free reign to play tracks that wouldn’t or couldn’t normally get rotation.
