Wud Records: December 2020 top ten tracks published at SoundCloud

The top ten SoundCloud tracks for December 2020 from Wud Records have been published in a new playlist. Tracks have been arranged from one to ten according to their popularity and take into account plays, comments, likes and reposts.

The algorithm we use gives greatest weight to reposts, then likes and comments over plays. This is because when somebody reposts a track it gives it the opportunity to be heard by a potential new fan. This is always a tremendous help to creative souls. Likes from people who clearly don’t listen to the music are ignored.

Songs published at Bandcamp are also completely omitted from the SoundCloud statistics. This is because Bandcamp statistics require separate treatment.

Archive tracks and bonus tracks are also ignored.

Only you, the listener, can influence our January 2021 playlist. So if there is a track you particularly like, keep playing it! Leave a comment, repost it and share it to your social media feeds!

Massive thanks go out to everybody who helped to support all of us during December 2020 by listening to, commenting on and reposting our bands’ tracks on SoundCloud, as well as other platforms.

We would also like to say a special thank you to all the splendid people on Twitter who have been enjoying and reposting our tracks to their followers. All the support and positive feedback has been incredibly heartwarming for us all. It makes all our endeavours here seem worthwhile.

Congratulations to Flicker, whose wonderful instrumental piece Farsight finally topped our charts. The ever-popular Farsight has been number two before on several occasions and has charted many times. It features the voices of Maaharaj Ji/Prem Rawat and Jonathan Agnew as well as some sounds from Captain James T. Kirk’s ship the USS Enterprise.

Three more tracks from Flicker‘s beautiful album At Least 1000 Words featured in the final chart of 2020. Blown Away, Welcome to the Family and Lucky Stone all received plenty of love, ending the month in postitions three, six and seven respectively.

Flicker‘s second album, HappySad, is under construction and you can listen to it as it stands right now by clicking here. Several more tracks are likely to be released in the coming weeks and months, so please keep an eye and an ear on our News service and Twitter.

Alchemeon followed up their highly dominant month last month by also achieving four of the ten most popular tracks on SoundCloud in December 2020. The Freaks (Shall Inherit The Earth) slipped down to number two after two months at the top. Finale, The Centre of the Cyclone and Castrol GTX a-Go-Go were the other three fabulous songs by Alchemeon to chart, finding themeselves at positions four, five and eight respectively.

The only other act to be represented in this month’s chart were Dark Company. Our biggest selling song, Medicines from Dark Company‘s groundbreaking 1992 album Rage in Heaven, made a reappearance at number nine. The awesome and humourous Don’t Look Down from their work-in-progress Bad Habits album completed the chart by coming in at number ten.
