New Countdown!: May 2020


Grouplove detail new LP 'Healer', unveil spring North American tour
Grouplove
Hey everyone! Well we made it through another month (basically) and so there's another batch of songs from Alternative Radio to listen to! We'll be back next month. Stay safe and healthy. And also, I hope it's very clear that at Appetite For Distraction, we firmly support Black Lives Matter and want swift justice for George Floyd and every other Black human being that has been murdered by police officers. The system is broken and we need to fix it.

New Countdown!: April 2020! (with special guest Lila!)


Billie Eilish and Her Brother Finneas Drive Into the Ocean in ...

Hey! So, this is what monthly countdowns looks like! We are back with all of the songs that charted in April. And my daughter is here to weigh in on what she thinks of the songs from this month. We had such a fun time recording that this might become an occasional feature. I hope you have as much fun. The "cover art" for this episode is not random as it normally is, but was purposefully selected after Lila correctly pointed out that there's only one female voice in this whole countdown. (Diet Cig has an album you could go preorder, if you were interested....)

So there's a holiday started by the McElroy brothers (of MBMBAM/The Adventure Zone/etc fame) called Candlenights and a couple of groups I'm in do Candlenights gift exchanges. One such Candlenights exchange got me a gift from Colin M Parker (The Podboss of The Scavengers Network) where he counted down the Top 5 songs from our friendship and I'm going to share that show with you right now! Enjoy! (I'll post the Countdown
