The sounds of 2011

Standard

One of the best things about being back in Australia has been rediscovering Australian music.  Especially now that I have a car and am regularly listening to Australia’s youth radio station and all round promoter of Aussie music, I’ve been a lot more exposed to the country’s best hip hop, alternative rock, electronic, and indie artists.  I’m sure many fellow drivers have been amused when they’ve looked into my car windows and seen me in my protective car cocoon impersonating a rock star!

So when it came to picking my Hottest 100 songs of 2011, Australian artists definitely dominated.  Here were my top songs of the year (in no particular order):

I would love to know what you think...
