Beck’s “Wow” predictably claims the top spot on this week’s alternative radio add board.

Beck’s new single was added by a healthy 37 Mediabase-monitored alternative stations this week. The count more than doubles that of the week’s next-most added song.

The Head And The Heart’s “All We Ever Knew,” that song, was added by 17 stations this week.

Picked up by 8 stations, Bishop Briggs’ “River” follows as the week’s third-most added song. “River” is the newest iHeartRadio “On The Verge” selection.

The Hunna’s “You & Me” earns fourth-most added with 7 pickups, while add counts of 5 slot The Avett Brothers’ “Ain’t No Man” and Glass Animals’ “Life Itself” in a tie for fifth-most added.

This week’s other notable alternative radio options: Coldplay’s “Up&Up” (4 adds, 7th), 888’s “Critical Mistakes” (3 adds, 8th, tie), KONGOS’ “Take It From Me” (3 adds, 8th, tie), Barns Courtney’s “Fire” (3 adds, 8th, tie), Catfish And The Bottlemen’s “Soundcheck” (3 adds, 8th, tie), Dirty Heads’ “That’s All I Need” (3 adds, 8th, tie), Nothing But Thieves’ “Wake Up Call” (3 adds, 8th, tie), Panic!
