Running late this holiday week. Thanks to “imboosted” for posting the Alt18 in the Finding Alt18 Discord.

Milky Chance, Olivia Rodrigo, and KennyHoopla with Travis Barker are new this week, while Holly Humberstone and Saint Motel return after a week off. To make room, Black Pumas, Briston Maroney, The Neighbourhood, Billie Eilish, and All Time Low all departed.

Glass Animals continue their run at No. 1 with “Space Ghost Coast to Coast,” while CHVRCHES lurk at No. 2 with “He Said, She Said.” Watch Lorde’s “Solar Power” rising to No. 8 as a contender for the top spot.

As always, thank you for reading. We’ll keep posting the countdowns and writing posts about the bands. I’m also starting to dabble with bringing attention to indie-bands that haven’t gotten a lot of attention. If you know a song or performer we should hear, let us know.

Here’s the full countdown for the week. Follow the Spotify playlist below for related songs, and reach out any time.

Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 6/26/21: Lorde, Bastille join; Glass Animals still No. 1

OCTAVIO the Dweeb

Another week with turnover on the Alt18 Countdown. Seven songs dropped off, though Twenty One Pilots simply swapped in “Saturday” for “Shy Away” and The Neighbourhood is back with “Stargazing” after a week off.

Bastille brought a new song, “Distorted Light Beam,” and Lorde’s “Solar Power” also joined the Alt18.

To make room for the changes, here’s who dropped out:

  • Vance Joy, Missing Piece
  • Holly Humberstone, The Walls Are Way Too Thin
  • Coldplay, Higher Power
  • Saint Motel, It’s All Happening
  • Blu DeTiger, Vintage
  • Beabadoobee, Last Day on Earth
  • Twenty One Pilots, Shy Away

Glass Animals spent another week at No. 1 with “Space Ghost Coast to Coast,” while Modest Mouse lingers with “We Are Between.”

Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 6/19/21: Modest Mouse and Sir Sly lurk, but Glass Animals hold No. 1

Saint Motel (Photo/Atlantic Records/Jabari)

Topsy-turvy week on the Alt18 Countdown with seven new or returning songs joining the list and knocking off a stalwart of 2021. No change at the top, though.

New Alt18 bands this week include: OCTAVIO the Dweeb, Vance Joy, and Holly Humberstone. Returning from past countdowns include: Joywave, Briston Maroney, Coldplay, and Saint Motel.

All of those additions kicked off Joywave and “After Coffee,” Alice Merton and “Vertigo,” Billie Eilish and “Your Power,” The Band CAMINO and “1 Last Cigarette,” Cannons and “Bad Dream,” and The Neighbourhood and “Stargazing.”

This is the first countdown without “Stargazing” in nearly 6 months. The Neighbourhood anthem joined the Alt18 on Jan. 23 and spent time at No. 1.

Glass Animals repeat this week at No. 1 with “Space Ghost Coast to Coast.”
