The Dew Process office has been relishing in the delights of Summer; devouring 50 pints of ice-cream in two weeks (which, as a small team, is a new record), creating lists of our favourite albums of the year and celebrating the end of a decade with some imperative lawn bowls.
Alas, there is serious side to Summer in which we all need to pause and reflect on the year that was and the tracks that carried us through it. Of course we are talking about Triple J’s Hottest 100. This year we are once again pleased to have a whole host of tunes eligible for nomination. Here’s just some of our top picks that we suggest you consider for voting:
The John Steel Singers – Overpass
Jebediah – Lost My Nerve
Grouplove – Colours
Last Dinosaurs – Honolulu
Ernest Ellis - Loveless
Mumford & Sons – Winter Winds
Bluejuice – Work
Guineafowl – In Our Circles
Freelance Whales – Generator ^2nd Floor
Sarah Blasko - Hold On My Heart (Presets Remix)
