Each week the CMJ staff sifts through thousands of radio playlists that contribute to the weekly CMJ charts. In the Chart Discovery column, we highlight exciting artists, albums, and songs brought to our attention by the charts of our reporting panel of college and non-commercial radio stations. This round’s favorites come from WMSE in Milwaukee, WI and CFUV in Victoria, BC.


The week we found WMSE supporting local dance-dreamers GGOOLLDD in the No. 10 slot at RPM with the band’s sparkly single, Gold. That’s a ton of bling, and it’s obviously best visualized as a black flaming pumpkin seated on a bed of tin foil. Enjoy.

Rumpshakers can often dominate at RPM, but the collab, ‘xela, from two of Calgary’s outr√© artists that clocks in at No. 6 at CFUV’s RPM chart is anything but. ‘xela‘s cool beats and Zola Jesus-style warble slink and undulate like an alleycat prowling a gothic ruin.
