AMOEBA MUSIC WEEKLY HIP-HOP ROUND UP 01:29:10

Amoeba Music Hollywood Weekly Hip-Hop Top Five Chart: 01:29:10

BlakRoc
1) BlakRoc Blakroc (V2/Cooperative)

2) Black Eyed Peas The E.N.D. (Interscope)

3) Jay Z Blueprint 3 (Roc Nation/Atlantic)

4) Fashawn Boy Meets World (Loud)

5) Oh No Dr. No's Ethiopium (Stones Throw)

If the newest Amoeba Music Hollywood hip-hop chart above looks similar to the SoCal store's chart from three weeks ago, well, that's because it is exactly the same. All the top selling hip-hop releases from the past few weeks' weekly charts at the Hollywood store have been consistently selling well and hence holding steady in their respective chart slots at the Sunset Blvd. store. Both Jay-Z and the Black Eyed Peas' now months-old 2009 releases continue to sell phenomenally well, and not just at Amoeba but across the nation also. They are still simultaneously holding down spots on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, ranking at #9 and #31 respectively on the national sales based chart. Meantime, instrumental versions of seven of the great tracks off the recommended self-titled BlakRoc album, composed and performed by The Black Keys for the emcees Mos Def, Raekwon, Pharoahe Monch, Ludacris, etc etc, were unveiled this week on the website The Black Keys Fan Lounge.

THE SOFT PACK & OTHER GREAT AMOEBA IN-STORES THIS WEEK

  The Soft Pack 'Answer to Yourself' live on 91X (2009)

Formerly known as The Muslims, San Diego indie rock outfit The Soft Pack will play for free at Amoeba Music Berkeley this evening at 6pm. The band has an amazingly catchy sound that they unleash on their about to drop (The Soft Packnext Tuesday) self-titled debut on Kemado Records (and on Heavenly Records in the UK). What I personally love about these guys' sound, especially the new album track "Answer To Yourself," which has been stuck in my head for the past two days straight, is how much it reminds me of one of my favorite eras of music: Belfast Northern Ireland punk circa 1979/1980 on the Good Vibrations label. I love it and the rest of the head nodding, retro-sounding tracks that I have heard off the new album (recorded with Eli Janney of Girls Against Boys). At today's Amoeba Berkeley in-store, you can pre-order it, in addition to getting an autographed CD booklet along with a limited-edition 7" Wayne Hancockfrom the band (while supplies last at the Telegraph Ave. Amoeba today only).

Above is the band playing live on radio station 91X a few months ago and below is a clip of them doing an instore at the Hollywood Amoeba on October 29th, 2008.
