Australia’s equivalent music awards show is the ARIAs, which airs this weekend. I haven’t yet been able to put my finger on the pulse of the Aussie music scene – it’s 1 part electronic, 2 parts pop and rock with a splash of acoustic – but I can tell you this, they love their homegrown artists! If Silverchair or Delta Goodrem or Powderfinger is doing anything, you’re sure to hear about it.
So, if you’re wondering what you might hear on Australian radio, here’s a taste:

-Sneaky Sound System, from Sydney

-John Butler Trio, from Western Australia (but, was born in Cali)

-Missy Higgins, from Melbourne
