Siriux XM Alt 18 Countdown of alternative music, Oct. 17, 2020 | No change at the top; Royal Blood, Abhi the Nomad, somegirlnamedanna join

No change with the Top 3 on the Oct. 17, 2020 Alt18 Countdown, but some interesting new additions from Royal Blood, Abhi the Nomad and somegirlnamedanna. Junior Mesa, JAWNY, and Claire Rosinkranz fell off this week’s list.

Hello, Royal Blood.

No change with the Top 3 this week, but some interesting new additions from Royal Blood, Abhi the Nomad and somegirlnamedanna. Junior Mesa, JAWNY, and Claire Rosinkranz fell off this week’s list.

I’m working on a complete list of Alt18 Countdown’s for 2020. It’s close, but not quite ready. One fun fact: Glass Animals have appeared on every countdown this year — streak they continued this week with Tangerine at No. 1.

I’m getting a bit more active on social @findingalt18 on Twitter, and some kind of a newsletter is coming for anyone who wants the list sent to them. As always, would love to hear your ideas.
