Wud Records: October 2017 top ten tracks published at SoundCloud

The top ten tracks for October 2017 from Wud Records have been published in a new playlist at SoundCloud. Tracks have been arranged from one to ten according to their popularity and take into account plays, comments, likes and reposts. Our algorithm gives 1 point for a play, 5 points for a comment, 10 points for a like and 12 points for a repost.

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

Only you, the listener, can influence our November 2017 playlist. So if there is a track you particularly like, keep playing it!

Massive thanks go out to everybody who helped to support all of us during October 2017 by listening, commenting and reposting our bands’ tracks. October 2017‘s figures were quite good, although we have been too busy sorting out our relocation to push the promotion of tracks very much. Output of content has temporarily dwindled, which is frustrating for everyone. You can see this by looking at the headlines of recent news posts.

Right now we are in the middle of moving the entire operation to the European mainland, which will enable activities to return to normal after a period of resettlement. We are hoping that something like normality will be restored this month. All fans and followers will be kept updated via the News service and on Twitter.

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

Congratulations to The Ug Brothers, whose gloriously classic indie-rock/indie-pop track Lifetime from their 1995 Cute But Weird album has topped our chart for the very first time. You can download the track as pay-what-you-want, including for free, from Bandcamp by clicking here.

The Ug Brothers showed a reasonable amount of dominance in October 2017, with further tracks coming in at positions three and four. What Is It?, last month’s Number One track, dropped to Number Four this month.

Also appearing on this month’s chart are & co, with their Dark Company remixes occupying four of the top seven places. Dark Company and Flicker rounded out the bottom end of this month’s Top Ten, with no other acts appearing on this extremely varied and eclectic chart.
