Squid lead an entirely new Top 5 on the latest UK Record Store Chart.
Squid have gone straight in at number one on the UK Record Store Chart with their debut album Bright Green Field.
Elsewhere, Royal Blood drop down from the top position last week to #6, and Natalie Bergman enters at #11 with Mercy. Further back, Dry Cleaning’s own debut record New Long Leg continues to perform well, climbing this week to #13.
It’s now nine years since The Official Charts Company launched this chart as vinyl sales surged during the last decade, a trend which continued in 2020 as the format grew for the 13th consecutive year. It is compiled from the best selling albums at 100 of Britain’s leading independent music shops.
