Wud Records: October 2020 top ten tracks published at SoundCloud

The top ten SoundCloud tracks for October 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 November 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 October 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 Alchemeon, whose psychedelic alternative rock anthem and call to action The Freaks (Shall Inherit the Earth) topped the charts in October 2020.

The Freaks (Shall Inherit the Earth) was a very popular Spacegoats song before Alchemeon started playing it. It was performed around many a uk campfire during various road protests, as well as other infrastructure project protests such as against the new high speed two railway.

Many people protest because they believe that these things cause terrible and unnecessary damage to the landscape of the uk. These projects cost billions to implement, money which arguably could be better spent on other things. And for what? A small gain in journey times.

Alchemeon had four of the top ten places this month. All four tracks come from their Live in Session Spring 2009 album, which was re-released recently. Finale and The Centre of the Cyclone both proved to be tremendously popular songs in October 2020, ending up at positions two and three respectively. Last month‘s number one song, Crazy Mandy, dropped down to number seven.

The rest of the chart was dominated by Flicker, who took up half of the ten available positions. All five of Flicker‘s tracks come from their wonderful 2002 album At Least 1000 Words.

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.

Dark Company were the only other act to feature in our latest chart. Dead Generation, a work-in-progress hard/alternative rock song (which we love!) made its first appearance on our charts by entering at number four. Dead Generation comes from Dark Company‘s Noir album, which is an album entirely made up of demos at present. Noir is a fantastic collection of songs, even if perhaps it is a bit rough around the edges.
