#Alt18 Countdown: Week of 7/20

Debuting this week are 4 new songs from Parade of Lights, The Neighbourhood, Pearl Jam, and Kings of Leon; kicking off Ceremonies (2 weeks), Fitz and the Tantrums (14 weeks), Local Natives (5 weeks), and Awolnation (3 weeks). Lorde (#14) and MS MR (#6) were our two biggest movers up, each gaining 4 positions. Our biggest mover down was “Diane Young” by Vampire Weekend, who lost 5 positions and dropped to #11. As predicted last week, Bastille took the #1 spot from Atlas Genius with “Pompeii”.

Predictions for next week: Avicii will be #15 or higher. Bastille will remain #1. Lorde and MS MR will both gain a couple more positions, pushing Lorde into the top 12 or better and pushing MS MR into the top 5. I don’t expect Pearl Jam to remain on the list for very long. Phoenix may lose a few spots next week, pushing them out of the top 10.
