Universal Horse’s Alternative Top 40 – June 2014

RW/FF is very proud to be one of the music blogs taking part in Universal Horse's monthly Alternative Top 40. As well as blogger folk like me, you too can be part of the Top 40 and make your current musical turn-ons count towards the chart each month... 

The Alternative Top 40 is a monthly music chart shared across multiple music blogs, and a great way of discovering music you might not have heard elsewhere. You can contribute to the #AltTop40 by simply naming your favourite tracks of the moment - for full details of how to nominate music, see the latest post about the chart at Universal Horse

The Alt Top 40 is not based on sales, or radio play – or, indeed, any form of objective measure. Instead, anyone who wants can simply tell us the tracks they want to see in the chart, and the more people we hear about a track from, the higher up it goes. So there are two ways that you can contribute to and directly influence future editions of the Alternative top 40:

Here's this month's edition:

1. Hazel Winter - Y.D.F.L.M.


2. The Phantom Band - The Wind that Cried the World

You can also find the Alternative Top 40 on Facebook and Twitter.

If you have a website, zine, podcast or similar and would like to host the chart there too, get in touch at alternativetop40@gmail.com. Firstly, if you tell us what you think are the best 5 tracks in the world this week, we’ll compile them into the next edition of the chart. At the end of this post there’s a contact form where you can fill your choices in, or just email your selection to alternativetop40@gmail.com - best one first. You can pick anything you like – from any time, and any place – with the exception of your own music or a band you work for. Five is the maximum: if you can only think of a couple you want to name, send them in anyway. The deadline for the July chart is midnight on Sunday July 6th...

This month's chart was shaped by
DrunkenWerewolf - God Is In The TV - Neon Filler – RW/FF - Monolith Cocktail
