triple j’s Hottest 100 Australian albums poll down to the wire

Image for triple j’s Hottest 100 Australian albums poll down to the wire

Now into the second week of its countdown, triple j’s Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time poll has revealed some interesting, if not too surprising results on what local long players alternative music fans hold nearest and dearest to their hearts.

To go along with the obvious nods like John Farnham, Crowded House and Nick Cave, the Australian album poll has seen big entries from Australian electronic acts like Pendulum, Cut Copy and Pnau scattered throughout the list. Now we’re at the business end of the competition with triple j this week revealing the top 20– and now we’re onto the final 10 – results including nods to Tame Impala’s still fresh Innerspeaker record, Gotye for his magnificent Like Drawing Blood and Unit, Regurgitator’s goofy magnum opus. With so few spots left to play with it’s anyone’s guess where The Presets will end up with their sure-to-be popular Apocalypso LP and whether or not The AvalanchesSince I Left You (the industry voted #1) will get snubbed for a Powderfinger album.

UPDATE: The Avalanches and The Presets are in the countdown now at #9 and #7 respectively. What chance of Muscles sneaking in…?
