Johnston Street Hottest 100 2019

2 years ago Jack and I got particularly frustrated with how the annual Triple J hottest 100 barely includes any Australian artists for voting. We built a website and compiled a massive list of releases from all the local artists we could think of so we could show some appreciation for all the great music that's out there.

Every January after the votes were tallied we put on a live show with some of our good mates and did our own countdown from the year before, the last one being one of my favorite shows ever. We may have been too lazy / crippled to do a hottest 100 this January but after looking back on all the tunes that came out last year we couldn't help ourselves but to at-least put together a playlist.

This is the hottest 100 for 2019 as voted by Jack and Bill (democracy is disabled in 2020).


As always there's going to be tracks that aren't included that we simply forgot about / missed when they came out so don't pitchfork us too hard for what is an entirely subjective list of releases.

All of these songs are on Spotify (playlist link at the bottom) but please consider giving the entire releases & albums a listen and if you can purchase a copy of the physical / digital release on Bandcamp as well as all the stuff on alternative platforms like Soundcloud and Triple J Unearthed.

We've seen almost all of these bands live and I enjoyed every single one so when the pub eventually re-opens please join us in coming to a show and thanking them for all the great tunes we get to enjoy.
