Siriux XM Alt 18 Countdown of alternative music, Dec. 19, 2020 | MISSIO hits No. 1; Jake Bugg joins final countdown of the year
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.
It’s the last Alt18 Countdown of 2020, and it’s pretty much a hold steady for the list. Jake Bugg (!) returns with a promising new song, “All I Need.” Hopefully this mean more new material from the British songwriter in 2021.
MISSIO climbs to No. 1 with “Can You Feel the Sun?” knocking off Bastille and “survivin'” Royal Blood, AJR and Black Belt Eagle Scout all fall off the list this week. Royal Blood’s “Trouble Coming” drops off for the first time since joining on Oct. 18.
“Tangerine” by Glass Animals, “Material Boy” by Sir Sly and “Is It True” by Tame Impala are the longest-running songs on the current countdown. All joined the list on Oct. 4.
SiriusXM released its “Class of 2020” this week. Alt18 bands Cannons, Phoebe Bridgers, Powfu, Wallows, Ashe and Clairo were part of the collection.
Next week they’ll run the “Alt36 of 2020” in place of the normal countdown, and then we’re off to 2021.
