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!
1Karnivool
Themata


The best album released in Australia for many, many years.
2Cog
The New Normal


Punishing, poignant and intense music from surfer-central Bondi.
3Kisschasy
United Paper People


The softer side of the Aussie rock scene lately. The new album isn't as good.
4Angus and Julia Stone
A Book Like This


Plenty of fun brother and sister from Sydney spewing out folksy alternative honey.
5Gyroscope
Breed Obsession


It might be pretentious and over the top, but these guys are going places.
6In Fiction
The Forecast


Fun for the whole family. The new kids on the block from Adelaide.
7 The Living End
White Noise


Could this be better than Karnivool's upcoming release? Let's just wait and see. It is very, VERY good.
8Birds of Tokyo
Universes


Side project of Karnivool vocalist Ian Kenny shows he has plenty of talent to share. Critically acclaimed but relatively unknown.
9The 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.
10Behind 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.
11The Butterfly Effect
Imago


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.
13Shihad
Beautiful Machine


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.
14Operator Please
Yes Yes Vindictive


Media darlings, and sugary pop icons. None older than 18.
15Trial Kennedy
New Manic Art


A great debut LP for Melbourne nutters. A fusion of emo/rock worthy of several long listens.
