Triple J’s Album of The Year

Triple J‘s sixth annual J Awards spreads its wings to include two new categories this year on top of its ever-popular Album of The Year gong.

Holler or tweet your congrachoolations to Tame Impala for taking out Album of The Year for their debut Innerspeaker.

The band beat a generous short list of LPs from the likes of Sia, Birds of Tokyo, Bliss N Eso, Cloud Control, Washington, Angus & Julia Stone, Bag Raiders, M-Phazes and Parkway Drive.

Yes, you won’t say no names but some of the above were almost guaranteed to not bag the award after a rather decorated year at the ARIAs.

The new Unearthed Artist of The Year gong went to Boy & Bear, who triumphed over fellow nominees: The Jezabels, Big Scary, Gypsy & The Cat and Stonefield.

Another new accolade – Best Music Video – was awarded to Washington for her 60s chic ‘Sunday Best’ promo. Others on the shortlist were Midnight Juggernauts‘ ‘Lara vs The Savage Pack’, Richard In Your Mind‘s ‘Candelabra’, Grinderman‘s ‘Heathen Child’ and Parades‘ ‘Loserspeak In A New Tongue’.
