2015 has been a fine year in music (and Australian music in particular). Here’s our list of the top 30 albums from the past 12 months.
The Basics lived up to their name in a stripped down, intimate gig at the Grace Emily on Tuesday night; it was a thrilling, no-frills display of honest rock’n’roll.
The Age of Entitlement is an album for the ages. Taking on Australian politics in 2015 with the same clarity and passion as Midnight Oil did in 1982 with 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1, The Basics present a fine collection of engaging songs delivered with feeling, humour and acumen.

With excellent crowd numbers, some very pleasant weather conditions and an outstanding and diverse line-up that delivered a host of excellent performances, this may very well have been the best WOMADelaide in the event’s history.
