#Alt18 Countdown: Week of 4/12

There are two new songs to the countdown this week and Blondfire returns: “Young Heart” by Blondfire, “Reverse” by SomeKindaWonderful, and “One Minute More” by Capital Cities kicked off Coldplay (4 weeks), Kaiser Chiefs (6 weeks), and Foster the People (12 weeks). Foster the People lost the most ground this week, going from #8 last week to a no-show this week. Our biggest gainer was The Black Keys, moving 5 spots to #4. After 15 weeks, Grouplove’s “Shark Attack” has its first #1 position.

My recommendations: Waves, Dangerous, Giants, Shark Attack, Paris, Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?, Take It or Leave It, Bridges, and Bad Blood.
