It’s tough to figure out who did the best this week – Elizabeth’s latest single “Sweet Connection” made the top of the list by being the most-added single track, but multiple tracks from the outstanding albums by Thelma Plum, King Stingray and WAAX were also a top choice for Australian new music playlisters. Banoffee’s “Angel Girl” was also a mad strong runner this week.

I’m giving the gold to Elizabeth on the basis that it’s a great track and I just feel like it, but those acts all triggered a riot of support this week off the back of a bag full of standout tracks.
Story of the week is a lot easier though, with Jet City Sports Club’s brilliant new track “Green Thumb” bounding into the top end of the list, putting this sparkling act right up there alongside (and ahead of) some way more established acts. A pleasure to see, and damn right too.

The images above are screenshots of the top end of the full lists. You can see this week’s lists here – those are updated on Mondays and allow you to scroll down the whole list. This page also details a bit more about how the whole thing works and what the charts mean.
You can also listen to the most playlisted tracks on, er, a playlist that I keep updated here. This has got the latest 50-ish most playlisted tracks from the last month or so on it, and it’s a decent spin through recent tracks that Australian new music playlisters are adding. The playlists that I track are the same as the ones listed in the Playlist Guide.
