Triple J Hottest 100 The Longest Mile #43-30

By | January 26, 2012

Half the party is playing Tiny Towers. The other half doesn’t have phones that support Tiny Towers.

Two people down for the nap. One awakes enough to decry the #30. But that’s okay, just bounce.

40-21: Okay, so Kingsmill will never openly admit it, and after the year of the audit discovering significant discrepancy in the vote versus the count, maybe they’re playing more fair.

The Melbourne push is going well, with the three melbiourne pushes.

I was quite late on the Unearthed call – Five unearthed bands by #43.  I forgot about Unearthed Radio providing more exposure,

id song comment
43 Grouplove – ‘Itchin’ On A Photograph’ First yay from the crowd at this party. Something someone likes!
42 Florence + The Machine – ‘What The Water Gave Me’ First legitimate use of the bass on the speakers system here. Even Skrillex didn’t hit the mark as hard as this track. Well played Florence, well played Machine
41 @TheStrokes – ‘Under Cover Of Darkness’ And that’s the double for the Strokes. Now chasing Bearandskittles errr Boy and Bear, and "I can’t believe it’s not Wolfmother" BonIver
40 @FosterThePeople – ‘Houdini’ It’s diet dubstep! All the drop, none of the filling bassline. This said from the guy who bought the album so I have the Pumped Up Kicks Single.
39 BennyBenassi – ‘Cinema (Skrillex Remix) At last! The Dubstep arrives, and here’s the drop. Still less bass than Florence and the Machine…but hey, happy place
38 @BallParkMusic – ‘All I Want Is You’ Didn’t this song get into the chart last year? Guy, guitar and a How-To-Write-A-Love-Song-for-Dummies,.
37 360 (@3ree6ixty) – ‘Killer’ Does this count as Aussie HipHop? MC over a drop doesn’t make you a pioneer, hiphop and dubstep have been collaborating for years. Second for 360. Oh, phone call to the artist, that’s probably crashed their hopes of triple
36 Florence + The Machine – ‘No Light, No Light’ Double up time. So… basically, for 100 songs, there’s like 40 bands in total at this rate..
35 Illy (@illyal) – ‘Cigarettes’ Melbourne MC gets a push, and a hyped promo. Called it!
34 @Gotye – ‘I Feel Better’ 1970 has just burst forth from the chest of the portal back to 1986. This is bad. This is very bad. Flamethrowers at the ready Pingu!
33 Jay-Z & @KanyeWest – ‘Otis (Ft. Otis Redding) DJ Shadow? Cut Chemist, is that you? Oh it’s Kayne and Jay-Z… which is kinda like having DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist.
32 @NoahAndTheWhale – ‘L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N’ Someone seems to have let the spirit of Richard Clapton out of the box. If they sing Lola, maybe that gateway to the 1970s will collapse.
31 @BallParkMusic – ‘It’s Nice To Be Alive’ Two people down for the nap. This track isn’t helping. Something, something, something, lyrics, guitar guitar, more chorus, guitar guitar. Seriously, who’s harvesting Ben Lee’s discards?
30 @CalvinHarris – ‘Bounce (Ft. Kelis)’ Oh hai, I know this one. Oh, and the first cry of :"Really?" from the audience. Yes! Awaiting the get off the lawn cry. Bounce!
