Wud Records: September 2020 top ten tracks published at SoundCloud

The top ten SoundCloud tracks for September 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 October 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 September 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 masterpiece Crazy Mandy smashed the charts in September 2020. It was only uploaded to SoundCloud a few days before the end of the month and gained enough plays and love to top our latest chart.

Alchemeon recorded four of the top ten places this month, with three tracks from their Live in Session Spring 2009 proving to be very popular and last month‘s number one track, Born of Stars, from their Live in Session Winter 2008-09 collection dropping to number two.

The rest of the chart was monopolised by Flicker and The Ug Brothers, with four and two tracks respectively. All four of Flicker‘s tracks come from their wonderful 2002 album At Least 1000 Words. Both of The Ug Brothers‘ tracks were Ugstrumentals – raw live lofi recordings without vocals salvaged from cassette.

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.
