iGEN by Ted Volk
The Place Where Radio and Records come Together Without Talking
YOUR RADIO ADD RECAP
4/17/18

Bear Hands' "Back Seat Driver" (Q Prime) was this week's Most Added record. Other winners include Beck's "Colors" (Capitol), Walk The Moon's "Kamikaze" (RCA), Mike Shinoda's "Crossing A Line" (Warner Bros.), Alice Merton's "Lash Out" (Mom & Pop), and AJR's "Burn The House Down" (AJR/BMG).

iGEN ALT STREAMING 4/13/18
4/13/18

When it comes to streaming you see all different types of data which I do realize makes it confusing.  This streaming chart is comprised of audio streams from Spotify and Apple which makes up the large chunk of it.  This chart also is a reflection of Modern Rock spins chart.  Once a song gets around Top 50 I make it eligible for this chart.  Once a song goes to recurrent I take it out of this chart.  

This week Foster The People shines with streams over 3 million! The new airplay from Top 40 and Hot AC  has made a significant impact. The Top 4 all have over 2 million streams. We see an impressive debut for AJR's "Burn The House Down" which has been available now for a few weeks and had around 800k streams.  Also on the new music front Two Feet, Mt. Joy and Wombats impress.

iGEN RECURRENT ALT STREAMING CHART
4/13/18

I thought I would show the top streaming recurrents tracks this week from Modern Rock.  The current streaming chart I publish is just the currents on the Modern Rock spins chart.  Once a record goes off the spins chart it heads to recurrent land. I don't think most of these are much of a surprise. A good example to share would be Lumineers "Ophelia." If that was a current it would be around #6 this week.  An interesting one is Bishop Briggs "River" which continues to thrive with around 500k weekly streams from Spotify.

Lovelytheband's "Broken" (RED) will be this week's new #1 record. Panic! At The Disco's "Say Amen" (DCD2) continues to rocket up the chart, moving to #12 powered by a 350+ spin gain. Two Feet's "I Feel Like I'm Drowning" (Republic) is up 175 spins, and moves inside the Top 20, to #17. Bear Hands' "Back Seat Driver" (Q Prime) and Mike Shinoda's "Crossing A Line" (Warner Bros.) make their chart debuts.

 

WOMBATS-"Turn"
4/13/18

Every once in awhile a song can be overlooked at Modern Rock.  The competition is intense for the slots that are available which makes it super tough.  I am in the car the other day and Wombats comes on Alt Nation and there is my daughter again telling me this is still her favorite song.  Then I am at the office this week and as I brought up "Turn" the fab Samantha Hissong tells me I LOVE THIS SONG.   I don't think they are alone.  It's still #1 most played at bellwether Alt Nation and influential KTCL Denver just moved it to power where it's ranked in Shazams.  
Not to quote C + C Music Factory's "Things That Make You Go Hmmm" but just maybe we should be doing that. 

 

 

TWO FEET-"I Feel Like I'm Drowning"
4/13/18

Two Feet's "I Feel Like I'm Drowning" is deservedly on its way to the Top 10 as it will make an impressive jump to #17 next week on the spins chart. The streaming has been strong for awhile now as the weekly audio streams have consistently been over 500k. 

CIGARETTES AFTER SEX-"Apocalypse"
4/13/18

Have you heard Cigarettes After Sex's "Apocalypse"? This really cool song has some impressive believers at radio which include, Alt Nation (50x), KROQ, KRBZ, WWCD, KNRK, Music Choice and KYRK.  If you are a fan of Mazzy Star you will love this. Check it out!

 

KROQ MUSIC MEETING/Mike Shinoda

As a record executive getting a call from KROQ on Tuesday afternoon from their music meeting telling you that they are adding a record has been a tradition for many years.  It's cool to see that a glimpse of the process is now viral.  Check it out!
