This week, thanks to the Fourth of July holiday, we cannot give you Billboard’s pop-music chart. Instead, we’re touring pop music’s nether regions, where Mom, Dad, and Michael Bolton fear to tread. The alternative universe has an angry queen this week: Polly Harvey, whose go-for-the-throat band, PJ Harvey, is No. 1 in the CMJ New Music Report. Here, she has bested Primus, those Lollapalooza headliners who, in the safer world of Billboard, have far outdistanced our not-so-pretty-sounding Polly.
