• UK alternative album downloads chart // 26th March 2012


    Top 10 UK alternative music albums chart – hit list published on Monday 26th March 2012 compiled according to iTunes downloads data:

    1
    Artist: Coldplay
    Album: Mylo Xyloto iTunes Download
    Label Copyright:
    2011 The copyright in this sound recording is owned by EMI Records Ltd
    2
    Artist: Lana Del Rey
    Album: Born to Die iTunes Download
    Label Copyright:

    3

    Artist: Gotye
    Album: Making Mirrors iTunes Download

    5
    Artist: Florence + The Machine
    Album: Ceremonials iTunes Download
    Label Copyright:
    Universal Island Records, a division of Universal Music Operations Limited

    Featuring majestic, theatrical arrangements centered on Florence Welch’s remarkable vocals, this is a bolder and more dramatic offering than their debut, Lungs. Booming percussion, strings, echoing keyboards, and big guitars create a towering platform of sound from which Welch emotes with a fury.

    6
    Artist: The Vaccines
    Album: What Did You Expect from The Vaccines? iTunes Download
    Label Copyright:
    1 & 4 (P) 2010; all other tracks (P) 2011 Sony Music Entertainment UK Limited

    Their brand of post-punk-rooted commercial rock fits in nicely with bands like the Strokes and Arctic Monkeys, though the Vaccines’ occasional foray into a big, fist-pumping guitar sound  might put off some stalwart indie-rockers.

    7
    Artist: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
    Album: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds iTunes Download
    Label Copyright:
    2011 The copyright in this sound recording is owned by Sour Mash Records Ltd

    Brass, strings, Mellotron, a choir; whatever it takes is brought to sonic perfection by Gallagher’s longtime producer Dave Sardy

    8
    Artist: The Shins
    Album: Port of Morrow iTunes Download
    Label Copyright:
    Columbia Records, a Division of Sony Music Entertainment

    The Shins’ first studio album in five years is the first to be released through James Mercer’s own Aural Apothecary label.

    9
    Artist: Snow Patrol
    Album: Fallen Empires iTunes Download
    Label Copyright:
    Polydor Ltd. (UK)

    After failing to secure an international audience for nearly ten years, Snow Patrol broke into the mainstream with 2003’s Final Straw, a mega-selling album that showcased the band’s fondness for epic, melancholic rock. The group had originally stuck closer to the pop realm, releasing quirky albums that took more cues from Belle & Sebastian than Coldplay.

    Artist: Maverick Sabre
    Album: Lonely Are the Brave iTunes Download
    Label Copyright:
    Mercury Records Limited
