The Countdown

The Radio Caroline Countdown of Album Sounds

Saturday 12pm ~ 3pm with Al Duprés

Produced by Graham Coull

Caroline Countdown 11th October

Loads of new albums have turned up but we only space for 6 New Entries, so plenty still under consideration for next time.
We also have 26 climbers, 6 fallers & 2 non-movers.

Pineapple Thief have reached their 10th studio album and are still evolving and stretching their Prog/Rock sound, US West Coast band Train’s 2012 album ‘California 37′ reached #11 on the Countdown and follow it up with ‘Bulletproof Picasso’. Johnny Marr’s ‘Messenger’ album made #33 in the Countdown of 2013, while Joe Bonamassa is back in full-blown Electric mode after his wonderful acoustic album at the Vienna Opera House which made #2 in the Countdown of 2013. After their successful eponymous debut album, Flying Colors are back with their follow up.

Girl duos seem to be in vogue just now. We have had Smoke Fairies & First Aid Kit doing well, now US sisters The Pierces are getting a lot of attention & climbing the Countdown.

Here’s the brand new Countdown as presented by Al Dupres on Saturday 11th October.
