|Aussie Albums You Must Listen To|
Behind the Aussie scene a bit? Here is a mix of albums you need to hear to catch up!
The best album released in Australia for many, many years.
The New Normal
Punishing, poignant and intense music from surfer-central Bondi.
United Paper People
The softer side of the Aussie rock scene lately. The new album isn't as good.
|4||Angus and Julia Stone|
A Book Like This
Plenty of fun brother and sister from Sydney spewing out folksy alternative honey.
It might be pretentious and over the top, but these guys are going places.
Fun for the whole family. The new kids on the block from Adelaide.
|7|| ||The Living End|
Could this be better than Karnivool's upcoming release? Let's just wait and see. It is very, VERY good.
|8||Birds of Tokyo|
Side project of Karnivool vocalist Ian Kenny shows he has plenty of talent to share. Critically acclaimed but relatively unknown.
|9||The Getaway Plan|
Other Voices, Other Rooms
Produced by the same man responsible for Underoath, the first full length from these Melbourne rockers may not be as hard it could have been, but is rather polished and interesting.
|10||Behind Crimson Eyes|
A Revelation For Despair
Again, not as good as it could have been, but the opener 'Sex Lies and Homicide' keeps you tuned in waiting for the repeat.
|11||The Butterfly Effect|
Just all round good stuff!
|12|| ||John Butler Trio|
One Small Step
A live acoustic album from recently de-dredded West Aussie shows his intimate and intriguing side. If you hadn't already witnessed it.
Technically, they are part Aussie and part Kiwi, but this album deserves a listen. Just a word of warning though, don't compare it to the classic 'General Electric' from 1999.
Yes Yes Vindictive
Media darlings, and sugary pop icons. None older than 18.
New Manic Art
A great debut LP for Melbourne nutters. A fusion of emo/rock worthy of several long listens.
|how odd that we created 2 aussie lists at the same time :/|
this list is quite wonderful. i had 15 crackin today particularly
|Correction on 14: Amandah turns 21 this year, Ashley is 19 or 20.|
Correction on 15: Not emo.
10 is fucking awful. Rest is good.
|Jeeze must be Aussie Music week or something|
Love every album on here except operator please,
they are the most terrible set of "musicians' ever.
I reckon TBE is slightly better than the 'vool, very close.
Also with BCE, theyre pretty good once you get past all the negative press they got.
Awsome list but TBE and BoT should be way higher.
|Oh and list needs sleep parade|
|yeah sleep parade continues to grow on me|
|Operator Please take a dump on Behind Cliche Eyes.|
|Okay Dokey. Thanks atavan|
Corrections on 14: Two of them are older than 18.
/commits hare kari.
It's not in any particular order. I'm not necessarily saying all these albums are fantastic... Just a widISH sort of sample for someone on the outside to look in on.
|Suprised to see 4 here, underrated album, even in Australia. Operator Please are catchy, but seriously, after listening to that album about 3 times, it's impossible to give it anymore listens. I really want 8.|
|this is gross, its like a list of australias most over rated shit bands. sorry, but there are so many better bands in australia that never get a mention. |
i mean..the getaway plan? serious? their albums the most monotonous piece of bore ive ever listened to, at least hold conversation was a decent ep.
