Matisyahu top seller at Twist and Shout

Matisyahu's Light, released last week on Sony, grabbed the top spot while Boulder Acoustic Society's in store performance last week might have helped Punchline, which has some insanely cool packaging, nab the second slot for the week ending August 30. Arctic Monkeys' Humbug, Imogen Heap's Ellipse and Ingrid Michaelson's Everybody, all released last week, rounded out the top five. See the full breakdown after the jump.
