Aussie acts fill Triple J’s Top 20 up nicely

By  |  0 Comments


A good handful of Aussie acts made it into Triple J’s Top 20 Albums Of The Year list for 2010 as voted by thousands of listeners. The top spot went, and deservedly so we think, to Canadian outfit Arcade Fire for their splendid LP ‘The Suburbs’, with Perth band Tame Impala coming in second with ‘InnerSpeaker’, and Sydney duo Angus & Julia Stone in at number three with ‘Down The Way’. Brisbane-bred Washington came in at number seven with ‘I Believe You Liar’, and Adelaide’s Sia in at number 15 with ‘We Are Born’. Melbourne trio Children Colllide were at the tail-end of the top 20 at number 19 with their debut ‘Theory Of Everything’. The list showcased not only the diversity of Australian music currently being favoured – from rock and acoustic to electronica and chill – but proved that sounds from all corners of this great sunburnt land are being given a fair spin.
