ID Song Comment The Call
10 HilltopHoods – ‘I Love It’ (Ft. Sia) Called it for one later than it appeared. 9: That indistinguishably similar Australian hiphop sound which wasn’t the popular one
9 @TheJezabels – ‘Endless Summer’ (Cure x Nirvana)^Souixe and the Banshees
8 360 (@3ree6ixty) – ‘Boys Like You (Ft. Gossling)’ Gorrillaz + Hilltop Hoods * BlueJuice. I think it might be a bit derivative 9: That indistinguishably similar Australian hiphop sound which wasn’t the popular one
7 San Cisco (@SanCiscoMusic) – ‘Awkward’ Damn. Someone in the party voted for this – can’t get the nobody knows score on this one. 6 or 7: A band nobody in the room recognises. Everyone feels that little bit older. Somebody makes a “Get orf my lawn comment and means it”
6 @LanaDelRey – ‘Video Games Urgh to go all toasters in the bath. Hide the sharp objects again. 8: Something stonerish and so painfully slow, that Wolfmother seems preferable.
5 M83 – ‘Midnight City’ I seem to have this one right. It’s quite nice work, but it does feel like the end of the electronic music selection 5: The last electronic song of the count down. The drum and bass members of the party realise they can go home, but they’re giving a lift to the guitar band fan so they have to stick around.
4 @BoyAndBear – ‘Feeding Line’ 5 piece indie guitar band. Close :) 4: Guitars, three piece, drummer and gimmick.
3 @Matt_Corby – ‘Brother’ 3: A band being given the TripleJ push. Critically acclaimed, and no discernable record sales.
2 TheBlackKeys – ‘Lonely Boy’ Yes, well, now let’s see what takes the prize shall we? 2: The actual winner, with iTunes sales and CD purchases included.
1 Gotye – ‘Somebody That I Used To Know (Ft. Kimbra)’ Edwyn Collins – A Girl Like You as interpreted by Sting, which closes me out with a double – the 1 pick plus the Kimbra four pack 1: Goyte. Something really slow, downbeat and depressing so the entire TripleJ nation feels bad about themselves
