Most Playlisted: Middle Kids

Middle Kids proved as popular as ever with the best Australian new music playlists this week, with their latest single “Bootleg Firecracker” , racking up adds on nearly 40% of the ones I track.

Most Playlisted This Week

🥇Middle Kids

🥈Teenage Dads

🥉Body Type, The Jungle Giants

Teenage Dads were hot on their heels though, with a full third of playlists agreeing on ‘Speedracer’.

The Jungle Giants also scored well this week with ‘Rakata’, but Body Type were (not for the first time) the Story Of The Week, with tracks from their latest, brilliant, album Expired Candy popping up all over the place. As the only artist with less than 10k Spotify followers to get this level of support, it’s (again, not for the first time with this act) a big signal of the support around this band right now.

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.
