It’s a huge week for Aussie artists on triple j, with listeners set to hear plenty of Thelma Plum, Press Club, Vera Blue, The Jungle Giants, and much more.

Following on from a massive week which saw Allday nab the feature album position, Thelma Plum has now scored that coveted position, holding strong all week with the release of her long-awaited debut album Better In Blak.

Coming after a few years of stunning EPs, Better In Blak sees a powerful release from Thelma Plum, with tracks like ‘Clumsy Love’ and ‘Not Angry Anymore’ showing her worth as one of the finest musicians on the Aussie scene today.

Of course, the record is also a rather special one, featuring some incredibly accomplished guests like Gang Of Youths’ Dave Le’Aupepe, Paul Kelly, and some young upstart known as Sir Paul McCartney, who wrote guitar parts for the record’s final track, ‘Made For You’.

If Better In Blak has resonated with you, be sure to catch Thelma Plum on her album tour this August, with details available below.

Of course, the fun doesn’t stop there on triple j this week, with Dreamville’s Revenge Of The Dreamers III scoring this week’s album packet, and a number of local and international bangers enter full rotation.

While Aussie heavyweights like City Calm Down, The Jungle Giants, Press Club, ShockOne, and Vera Blue all have new tracks on offer, so does Ashe, Stormzy, and Post Malone, whose Young Thug-featuring ‘Goodbyes’ has been blowing up over the weekend.

Meanwhile, tracks by Sly Withers and Thandi Phoenix score spots, as do triple j Unearthed favourites Kobie Dee, Teischa, and TOWNS. Check out a detailed run-down of all the action on the airwaves below!
