Siriux XM Alt 18 Countdown of alternative music, Nov. 28, 2020 | Mansionair/NoMBe, Finneas, Cage the Elephant and Rainbow Kitten Surprise 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.

Material boys Sir Sly

Running late this week with the holiday, but here’s the list with four new songs this week. Post Humorous by Gus Dapperton fell off the week Madison is on vacation. Coincidence? Justin Kade filled in ably.

Note: It was pointed out I dropped the “but” from “I Dont Know How But They Found Me.” That makes me a “but-head.” Corrected this week and I’m going back through previous lists to get things right. See a mistake? Let me know!

Thoughts on this week’s countdown? Post a comment or drop me a line.
