View Full Version : The J Awards 2011

2011-11-21, 03:45 AM
Triple J is Australia's national non-commercial alternative radio station. It's a pretty big deal in Australian music, and their Unearthed programme has helped launch some pretty significant artists such as Grinspoon, Art Vs. Science and Philadelphia Grand Jury. They emphasise Australian and new music, and are often the first radio station to play a new song.
So basically, as far as Australian music goes, they're pretty important.

And the J Awards (http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/jawards/11/) is their own Australian music awards, judged by a panel of music industry people. Nominations have started to be announced, so I figured I may as well start a thread about it.

The nominees thusfar are:
