• May Chart toppers: Chez Musinum Artists, Albums, and Tracks

    6 Jun 2008, 13:17 de musinum

    Each week I list the top 15 Chez Musinum connected artists who appear on our group charts, extending the list to include any ties. The bottom tier is given one point for the week, and each additional listener counts as an additional point.

    Let's say there is a six-way tie for 13th place one week, at four listeners. Since the next tier would start at 19th place, those 6 artists are the bottom tier and get one point apiece. Those with five listeners would get 2 points, and those with ten listeners would get 7 points. If the bottom tier is at three listeners the following week, that tier would get 1 point and ten listeners would be worth 8 points.

    The monthly score is just the sum of the weekly scores. (Note that even though an artist who gets points one week may have one or more listeners in another week, those won't count unless the rank is 15 or higher.)

    Two more lists are produced, one for albums and one for tracks, following similar rules, with one difference:

  • The Peach Tree Videos

    Know The Peach Tree as that guy that makes all that pounding electronica? Well it all started very differently. The first two songs I ever wrote were acoustic pop songs called The Colour Of Your Eyes and 17. I enjoy whipping out the guitar every now and then and playing these songs when I'm hanging out with friends.

    Just recently I did an open mic night at The Bendigo Hotel where I played these two beautiful songs, and the 10 minute epic "A Change Of Perception", all of which can be found on the album The Gus Sessions, and it was recorded on film.

    So without further ado, I welcome you to the realm of Peach Tree Videos, right here on Last.fm :)

    I'm quite happy with the performance, it's some of the best singing I've ever done, and the videos capture a really nice live atmosphere.

    Please listen, and leave comments if you wish.

    Hope you are all well.

    -Peace and Love,
    Angus
