Score One For The Home Team

It’s about a week overdue, but The Sound Medium would like to extend our congratulations to Durham-based Merge Records for the chart topping album The Suburbs by Arcade Fire, which debuted at number one last week in the US and UK. It’s held strong at number two this week behind Eminem’s new album. Spoon‘s, who are also on Merge, Twitter account currently reads, “Let the record reflect that Merge Records is the NUMBER ONE LABEL IN THE USA! Here’s to Arcade Fire and Merge: #1 — 156k copies sold”. Way to rep NC!
