My mood right now.
One of the top tracks of 2016. Listened to this again recently and it made me cry.
Please is Melbourne band Huntly’s latest and it’s so good!
Picking my top ten tracks is hard work. I would sooner pick 100 tracks, there were that many good ones released this year. Well as it happens, fellow SuperUser Dave McCarthy has put together his top 100 tracks for 2016 for you to all enjoy. Check it out here!
Now to my next pick…
#4 Adore – Amy Shark
When I think top ten Hottest 100, I think Adore by Amy Shark. But it’s not its popularity that has made it so high on my favourites of 2016. This track blew me away as soon as I heard it and many are having the same reaction. Queue this one for high rotation on the commercial radio stations in 2017, once they all realise what a banger it is.
Amy is lovely too. She dropped by the triple j studios to perform for Like A Version and her acoustic version of Adore is absolutely stunning.
That’s why Adore has made my top #10, indeed top #5 tracks of 2016. Stay tuned tomorrow for my #3 pick.
Already past the halfway mark and the year is nearly over. I will be revealing my #1 on New Year’s Day to kick off the hopefully successful year of [Just In] Australia. But now for my fifth pick…
#5 Flower St. – Zen Haircuts
This track had my music senses tingling and I immediately went searching for more of their stuff. Zen Haircuts will be releasing their Zen Haircuts EP in early 2017, so keep your eyes peeled and your ears clean.
Oh my god.
This one came out of the blue for me. It’s typically harder for songs released in the later part of the year to make favourite lists, but this one was immediate for me.
#6 Oh My God – Owen Rabbit
Owen Rabbit just finished touring his debut EP in Europe, and is touring Australia very soon. Check out the dates on his Facebook or at owenrabbit.com
Continuing to countdown the top 10 tracks of 2016, we’re moving on to Number Eight.
#8 Inside Voices – Mallrat
Mallrat’s ‘Inside Voices’ is firmly inside my top ten Unearthed tracks of 2016. The Brisbane artist has produced something undeniably relatable with this one. Who doesn’t get that sinking feeling that everyone’s politeness is just a mask for what they really think of you? Just me? Oh. Well I’ll just sit by myself in silence.
This is the excerpt for your very first post.
2016 is nearing its end and many will be sighing, “Thank Goodness!”
I, on the other hand, am trying to use all the time we have left this year to prepare for this new project.
I have one New Years Resolution and that is this: Do what you’ve always wanted to do. Immerse yourself in the everything Australia has to offer: the music, the culture, the action.
That’s exactly what this new blog will be about.
I realised that this year I have been cooped up in a little box. It was once comfortable, but I’ve grown as a person and now it’s very uncomfortable.
So keep an eye out for what’s going on here. And I encourage you to jump out of your comfort zone too, and make 2017 as fruitful as you can.
See you soon!
