Wud Records: July 2020 top ten tracks published at SoundCloud

The top ten SoundCloud tracks for July 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, which is always a tremendous help to creative souls.

Tracks published at Musicoin and Bandcamp have been omitted from the SoundCloud statistics. This is because we feel these results require separate treatment. Archive tracks and bonus tracks are also ignored.

Only you, the listener, can influence our August 2020 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 July 2020 by listening, commenting and reposting our bands’ tracks on SoundCloud, as well as other platforms.

A special mention needs to go to Atom Collector Records. Their service continues to help us achieve consistently and significantly better activity and new fans. If you have tracks on SoundCloud, Bandcamp, YouTube, Musicoin, Spotify, ReverbNation, dSound, dTube or Peertracks, you too could see considerable growth in activity. It’s even free to join. Just click here to go to their site.

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, who dominated our July 2020 chart with four entries, including the top three.

Welcome to the Family returned to the top of the chart having enjoyed a surge of popularity, and last month’s chart topper Oily Road Hideaway fell to number two. Blown Away, a perennially popular and particularly splendid rock instrumental, rose to the number three position, while the dark and dystopian Or Maybe Not…? landed at number six.

All four tracks come from Flicker’s wonderful 2002 album At Least 1000 Words.

Their 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.

July 2020 was an excellent month for The Ug Brothers, who occupy three of the positions, with several more tracks hovering just below the top ten. There are raw live lofi instrumental bootlegs (Ugstrumentals) of Paperchase and Drowning In Your Eyes, as well as another version of Drowning In Your Eyes with vocals from the original 1986 incarnation of The Ug Brothers.

Also appearing on the latest chart is the recently repaired Born Of Stars by Alchemeon, a live and unplugged version of Aeroplane by Dr Watson (the Flicker version of Aeroplane is much more widely known) and Jigsaw, the first track from Alien Heat‘s Red Rug Demo.

A lot of activity has been coming from new sources and new fans, which is obviously very pleasing for us all. Some very surprising tracks have suddenly become very popular!
