We have a new No. 1! Not surprisingly, Twenty One Pilots jumped up one to flop spots with Manchester Orchestra on the Alt18 Countdown.
Weezer, All Time Low, The Backseat Lovers and Alice Merton dropped off the countdown this week. One of the AltNation DJs said Merton’s “Vertigo” was No. 19 this week, so maybe it returns next week.
I got in some trouble from Spotify this week for posting the Alt18 Countdown playlist. It’d gone over 1,000 followers and that probably didn’t sit well with our friends at AltNation. The good news is they’ve started uploading the playlist on Pandora. It’s slower to update, but what can you do? (And no hard feelings. AltNation is part of a paid subscription so posting their list outside of the paywall is bad for business. Sorry about that, AltNation friends!)
I love hearing from you all. Drop a comment or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Along with this blog, here’s a few channels I update:
- Follow the updated Pandora playlist.
- Here’s the Alt18 YouTube playlist (I’ve been slow on this one)
- Sign up for the Finding Alt18 newsletter
- Join the Finding Alt18 Discord. We’re just getting started, but I hope it’s a place to talk and share music — and make this site a little better. Open to all. Come share your thoughts on the countdown or anything alt-music related.
