Good episode? Give it some love!
The Official Charts Company have issued new rules to tackle the Sheeran Singularity, and they appear to be partly based on suggestions that have appeared in previous Unbreak My Chart episodes.

Pitchfork's Rihanna feature is here:
St Vincent's Guitar Moves interview is here:
And we've made a Songs of the Summer playlist, to be updated with new suggestions as they come along:
Laura's most-listened-to song this week is "New York" by St Vincent and Fraser's is “Last Chance Saloon” by Hightown Pirates.

If only all playground debates about music had been so well informed." -- Caroline Crampton, The New Statesman (http://www.newstatesman.com/culture/podcasts/2017/04/how-podcasts-are-reviving-excitement-listening-pop-charts) "While the charts have become both confused and sidelined in recent years, they’re still an invaluable insight into the machinations of the music industry, something this pod proves in gratifyingly informed style." -- The Guardian Guide (https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2017/apr/07/the-10-best-things-to-do-this-week-syd-russell-brand-and-i-am-not-your-negro)
