This week saw the calendar tick over from October to November, aka Ausmusic Month, aka The Best MonthTM, and we're dang-hecking excited as always for four solid weeks of lifting up local tunes to their rightfully lofty place at the front and centre of our musical discussion.
The good folk at triple j are well and truly on-board, too, unleashing a list of playlist additions for next week that comprises 100% Aussie-grown flavours from a wealth of respected acts, including Feature Album recipient Illy, who picks up the honours for his new album Two Degrees, as well as standard additions for LANKS, Tigertown, Trophy Eyes and more.
Also from Monday, keen listeners will notice the presence of spot additions from The Money War, Introvert, Yeo and others. In fact, the closest we come to seeing an international entry hitting the station next week is US-based muso Hazel English, who joins the roster with a spot add for her track Make It Better — though, given her Australian upbringing, she still fits the brief even now she's based in Oakland.
See below for the full breakdown of newcomers hitting the airwaves in the very near future.
