New tracks from Genesis Owusu, Saint Lane, and San Cisco were the most added artists across the best Australian new music playlists this week, with Saint Lane’s achievement also making them the Story Of The Week for doing so ahead of some far more established acts.
Most Playlisted This Week
🥇Genesis Owusu, Saint Lane, San Cisco
🥈Alex Lahey, Great Gable, RVG, The Rubens
🥉King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Elsewhere there were more tons of top-shelf releases, with Alex Lahey’s brilliant album gaining well-deserved support, as did the new Great Gable EP. Standout tracks from RVG, The Rubens, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard also got the sort of support you’d expect for artists of that calibre.
That said though, this was a notably busy week for the number and quality of releases, and it was clearly a tougher job than usual for playlisters to narrow down their list of favourites.

The images above is a screenshot 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. That 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.
