Most Playlisted: Hockey Dad

Most Playlisted This Week

It was a notably slow week for releases – nearly 40% less tracks than last week! – but some clear quality still bubbled to the top, with Hockey Dad reaping the most spots on the best Australian new music playlists. This was fuelled by tracks from their latest album, ‘Rebuild Repeat’, and that broad backing is a signal of how – rightly – well-regarded this excellent band continue to be among tastemakers.

🥈GUM, Barkaa, Forest Claudette, FANGZ

GUM and Barkaa were only a nudge behind though, both with excellent tracks out in the world this week. Forest Claudette also just missed out on the top spot, an artist still on the rise but enjoying strong backing.

Story Of The Week though goes to the mighty FANGZ, who returned with a characteristically blistering new track, and blazed their way onto more of the credible playlists than many other more established acts.

The image 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.
