Triple J Unearthed’s Top 50 Most Played Artists Of 2013 Revealed

Triple J Unearthed have unveiled their Top 50 Most Played Artists of 2013. The list in fact features 52 artists as a result of a three-way tie for the #23 spot, and is dominated by indie and pop artists. Rainy Day Women, Wave Racer, and Major Leagues have taken out the top three spots.

“At triple j Unearthed we churn through a staggering amount of new music,” open Unearthed management on their website, “with the Unearthed digital radio station we’re also pumping out the love with 100% independent and unsigned Australian artists on air every minute of the day.”

Though management go on to say “the final wash-up offers a little bit of everything including sweet slackerism, urgent garage punk and more brashly confident rappers than ever,” the list features an overwhelming amount of bands whose profiles categorise them as indie (33 acts) and 22 pop acts.

The list is rounded out with 14 rock groups, six EDM or hip-hop artists, and five bands who classify themselves as punk rock, with seemingly no metal to speak of. 15 of the acts hail from Sydney, 14 from Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane each feature six, and five acts call Adelaide home.

The winner of J Award for ‘Unearthed Artist Of The Year,’ acclaimed Melbourne-based emcee Remi secured the number five spot for himself. Known for his cuts Sangria and Saggin’, this quickly rising hip-hop star is capping off a big year, recently announcing a 2014 headline tour.
