In what reads like a shortlist of the acts that’ll comprise the top half of next year’s Hottest 100, triple j assembled 40 your favourite artists for the following ~comedic bit~ in which every musician you love does their best impression of a cook spoiling the broth.
From memory, Flume’s there, obviously, and so is Disclosure, The Preatures, Lorde, Diplo, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Sticky Fingers, Peking Duk, Flight Facilities, Ball Park Music, Angus and Julia Stone, Vance Joy, Megan Washington, The Jezebels, Bluejuice, Allday, Bertie Blackman, Kingswood, Paul Kelly, Alison Wonderland, Thelma Plum, Asgeir, First Aid Kit, Tkay Maidza, Hilltop Hoods, Illy, The Presets. I give up, tl;dr – everyone who has ever recorded a song – or has been in the triple j studios in the last six months – makes an appearance.
Even Rick MF Astley is there.
Voting for the songs you’ll inevitably complain about once they top the Hottest 100 is open now.
