Powered by the format’s second-greatest weekly airplay gain, Foals’ “Mountain at My Gates” surges into the Top 40 on Mediabase’s alternative radio airplay chart.

Spun 346 times during the July 26-August 1 tracking week, “Mountain” rises eighteen places to #33 on this week’s chart.

Its spin count bests last week’s total by a whopping 208 plays. Only Cold War Kids’ #6 “First” (+212) enjoyed a greater gain.

“Mountain at My Gates” is one of two additions to this week’s Top 40. George Ezra’s “Blame it On Me,” the other, earns #38 (+3) courtesy its 225 weekly spins (+23).
