    [–] Triage discussion - Favorite Tracks, First Impressions, Etc emptybills 5 points ago in MethylEthel

    Only had a couple of listens so far but was very impressed. It’s short but it’s sweet and there are some great tunes in there.

    Ruiner is such a jam. It seems they’ve been using it as the opener for their sets for a while now and I feel like it will get a bit of a following so wouldn’t be surprised if it gets a bit of continued jjj playtime after this week.

    Pretty sure I’ve been to the circular windowed room just below. It was my orthodontist a few years ago, unsurprisingly the view is pretty spectacular

    That’s a national icon!

    [–] Sorry if asked before, will there be a streamable version of the full hottest 100 soon after airing? emptybills 2 points ago in triplej

    Relistened to the countdown? It was definitely up last year because I planned to get around it but they only leave it up for about 2 weeks from memory?

    [–] Is there someone who currently knows the whole countdown? emptybills 32 points ago in triplej

    Veronica and Lewis mentioned in their show this week that they get handed a manila folder on the day that just has the results for the section they are hosting (i.e. 60-40 or whatever) and that they know nothing more than that. And from my own experience the countdown has never been leaked before the day so that shows they must be doing a pretty good job of keeping it under wraps.

    [–] Sorry if asked before, will there be a streamable version of the full hottest 100 soon after airing? emptybills 7 points ago in triplej

    I don’t think there is a way to do it straight after, but from memory they put the full recorded countdown up as a 4 part podcast sort of thing on the website within a day or two. So that is probably your next best bet if you want the commentary. Otherwise I’m sure someone will be making a Spotify playlist as it happens so that’s a fallback option :)

    [–] GTM lineup predictions? 🐄 emptybills 3 points ago in triplej

    Methyl Ethel, Crooked Colours, Amy shark, Peking Duk, Boo Seeka, Fisher, Client Liaison, Northeast Party House, Rubens, Dune Rats, Golden Features, Bring Me The Horizon, Shannon Noll, DMA’s, San Cisco, Tkay Maidza, Broods, Thundamentals, Nothing But Thieves, Jet, G Flip, Alex the Astronaut, Vance Joy.

    Just a few of my predictions based on who’s played last few years, who’s trending/touring more at the moment etc.

    They have such a knack for getting high polling artists from Hottest 100 either just afterwards or in the year preceding (Rubens in 2016, Tash Sultana, Amy Shark, Pnau and Methyl Ethel in 2017, Dean Lewis and Ocean Alley 2018).

    Also going off the last 3 years they always love to include: - 1 or 2 heavier/metal type bands (Against Me, Architects, Amity Affliction, In Hearts Wake) - 1 or 2 US/UK Rappers (Danny Brown, Loyle Carner, DJ Yella, Aminé, K.Flay) - Some throwbacks (The Darkness, Grinspoon, Paul Kelly) - Some rowdy Aussie rockers (Violent Soho, The Smith Street Band, DZ Deathrays) - Some Aussie rap (Drapht, Illy, Remi, L Fresh the Lion, Thundamentals, Allday, Sampa the Great, Baker Boy) - Some housey bangers (Claptone, Flight Facilities, Hayden James, Pnau, Duke Dumont) - Some big trap beats (Dillon Francis, Odesza, What So Not, Slumberjack) - Some serious Aussie up and comers (Didirri, Samsaruh, Mallrat, Alex Lahey, Lanks, Boo Seeka) - Some token crowd-pleasing internationals (The Wombats, Milky Chance, Snakehips, Twenty One Pilots, Portugal. The Man)

    Solid by the looks of it

    [–] What's a dirty secret that everybody in your industry knows about but anyone outside of your line of work would be scandalized to hear? emptybills 3 points ago in AskReddit

    I’ve been on the radio 3 times in Australia. Every time was 100% live and was a little nerve-racking but heaps of fun! I spoke to the presenter while the songs were playing to make sure I was prepared and happy to speak and then they’d chat with me on air and still go pretty ad-lib from what we discussed off air. Always lots of fun!

    [–] Dylan Alcott on Instagram: “After what has been an awesome two years, it’s with a heavy heart to announce that I won’t be returning to @triple_j on a regular basis in…” emptybills 6 points ago in triplej

    I met him at a Client Liaison Fitness Academy session in Melbourne a few months ago. He showed up and toured everyone round the Victorian Institute of Sport facilities and hung out for an hour or so. Nice dude.

    Also saw him in speed dealers at his Ability Fest festival a few months earlier and he was chilling and getting photos with everyone. And just remembered I saw him in the bar at the MCG back in May or so and he was equally as friendly.

    All in all he meets all the requirements of being a solid guy as far as I’m concerned!

    Extra FYI for those not aware, Nick Littlemore of Empire of the Sun also leads PNAU. Seriously talented dude!

    [–] Just some notes for few of my Indian brothers and sisters. emptybills 82 points ago in melbourne

    I’m no expert on the matter so take this with a grain of salt, but from my understanding it could be to do with the ‘Caste’ system in India.

    As far as I know, you are basically born into a class (high, middle, low, etc) and this can often define parts of your life such as career and marriage. Eg. someone born into a higher Caste might never become a waiter/waitress as that would be seen as below them. There can then sometimes be a certain amount of classism towards those that are seen as being of a lower Caste.

    Again this is just what I’ve heard word of mouth and an explanation someone gave me after I received similar treatment whilst working a part-time retail job in the past.

    Just quietly I fkn love how hard Harley goes at the end of his sets when he plays Free <3

    [–] Thoughts on who will replace Childish Gambino at Spilt Milk? emptybills 1 points ago in triplej

    I’m actually totally cool with it! I haven’t seen a festival lineup post in the last year that hasn’t had a heap of people demanding Golden Features. And Angus and Julia had some good hottest 100 success last year and are generally likeable and have a good catalogue.

    It’s two artists when we were expecting one and they are talented and popular. A good result in my eyes really!

    [–] Thoughts on who will replace Childish Gambino at Spilt Milk? emptybills 6 points ago in triplej

    I’ll bet you 50 bucks Peking Duk end up playing if you like?

    [–] Thoughts on who will replace Childish Gambino at Spilt Milk? emptybills 12 points ago in triplej

    He is obviously the major drawcard to the event, with the lineup specifically putting him out by himself at the top and then having additional artists below.

    It’s obviously very short notice but they probably have a bit of a budget to work with as he would have been on track for a significant amount of the pool of artists fees.

    I figure they might be able to snag an international artist so it would be interesting to see who that would be. If it was Aussie I’d expect it to be a pretty massive name to keep people happy and someone who’s got touring space.

    I could see Gang of Youths, Amy Shark, Presets or something along those lines jumping on. Or maybe a crowd pleaser like Hilltop Hoods, Ocean Alley or Skeggs etc.


    [–] Interest in track creation and credits (part 1 Skin) emptybills 1 points ago in Flume

    That’s interesting about the Daniel Johns additional vocals on Say It. Any idea which parts of the song he’s adding his voice on?

    I love seeing the tracks that give full mixing credits to Harley. Cool to know that they were good to go straight from his own production to the finished track.

    [–] What do you think of this week's feature album: RÜFÜS DU SOL - SOLACE? emptybills 4 points ago in triplej

    Huge Rufus fan, really like it so far but haven’t had a huge chance to listen to it through a few times.

    I thought bloom was phenomenal and there were 5 or so songs on that album and about 6 Atlas/Single releases before that I absolutely love so it will be interesting to see whether I can get around some of the Solace tracks to the same degree. I like No Place but it’s quite a safe release and Underwater is nice but didn’t blow me away.

    My heart is ready to love again so I’ll take it slow with Solace and see where it takes me
