So Hot Right Now

Hot picks: Thelma Plum, Tkay Maidza, MTNS + Lorde!

2013 triple J Hottest 100 Picks
with Matt Bond and Jo Michelmore

There's only eleven days left to go until one of our favourite days of the year - 'Straya Day! And with Australia Day comes the countdown that gets errybody talking, the triple J Hottest 100. The 2013 edition has one thing going for it... there is no way that Macklemore and Ryan Lewis can top it. So it's already a million times better than the 2012 edition. But it's also been a really good year for music and this countdown is going to make the day a whole lot of fun. 

Who's gonna be #1? Well, it's looking like a two horse race at the moment between teen wonder Lorde and those French robot fellas that make up Daft Punk. 'Royals' vs 'Get Lucky'. Either are worthy winners, but triple J looks to firmly be backing Lorde if their marketing is anything to go by. Where there are horses, there are dark horses and leading that pack seems to be Vance Joy's 'Riptide', The Preatures' 'Is This How You Feel?' and Matt Corby's 'Resolution'. In fact, those five tracks could very well make up the top 5 come January 26. 

Jo and Matt have put their votes in, picking tracks that will make 'Straya Day a whole lot more fun. For them, I guess, but for you too! So if you're in need of some suggestions, have a listen to the picks below and if you haven't voted, head on over to triple J to get 'yo vote on. It's cool to vote, kids! Make your voice be heard blah blah blah. Let's listen to some music...
