Triple J Hottest 100 2019

Hottest 100 day is coming up fast and let’s just say I think it can’t come fast enough. What a great year of music we have just had, and I really do believe that this countdown is going to be a nail biter!

My Votes

I had an excess of 25 songs that I wanted to vote for, its crazy how song after song can add up. With new music from Kaiit to The Jungle Giants, and who could forget Billie Eilish’s bomb of an album. But through hard work and a serious (but sad) culling, I finally did it. Take a look below.

Shane Cubis (another contributor to ASTAR) has also put in his votes, here they are:

Top Runners

Although its too late to put in your votes now, I’ve scoured the internet to see who the top runners are. There are some Oohh’s (Ohh I totally picked that song), Ahh’s ( Ahh yes I forgot that song) and the straight up Huh’s? Here’s what Elle had to say:

10. Pub Feed- The Chats

9. Heavy Hearted –

8. Rushing back – Flume ft. Vera Blue

7. By Myself – Fidlar

6. Charlie – Mallrat

5. Better In Blak – Thelma Plum

4. Drink Too Much – G Flip

3. Bad Guy – Billie Eilish

2. Bulls on Parade –

1. Dance Monkey – Tones & I

There is also a website called 100 Warm Tunas, which aims to take everyone’s post of their top ten and uses magic and maths to predict a result. Apparently, it’s pretty accurate, so if you don’t want possible spoilers, maybe just skip this part.

10. Purple hat – Sofi Tukker

9. Heavy Hearted – The Jungle Giants

8. Dance Monkey – Tones & I

7. Rushing back – Flume ft. Vera Blue

6. By Myself – Fidlar

5. Better In Blak – Thelma Plum

4. Drink Too Much – G Flip

3. Charlie – Mallrat

2. Bad Guy – Billie Eilish

1. Bulls on Parade – Denzel Curry (Like A Version)

How to recover from 2020

How to recover from 2020

No matter what you went through last year, we can rebuild and regenerate. We’re a month into the new year, and those echoes of 2020 are still bouncing around our skulls and hearts. Lots of us thought we’d wake up in a new season of some prestige TV series, ready to start fresh plotlines, but…

How did the Hottest 100 go this year?

How did the Hottest 100 go this year?

Once again, the nation gathered to find out our favourite choons. And once again, it was a surprising mix of tracks, including heeeeeaps of Aussie acts (66 of them, to be specific). Triple J’s Hottest 100 is one of Australia’s annual unifying traditions, especially now it’s not on January 26 anymore. It brings together music…

Thelma Plum: taking absolutely no prisoners

The Gamilaraay singer is not here for your bullsh*t. She was everywhere last year with Better in Blak, a propulsive album that’s as perfect for getting fired up over racial inequality and bad allies as it is for powering through a to-do list. But where did Thelma Plum come from? She’s been around for aaaaages…
