In the midst of yesterday's blissful sun and complete loveliness, I caught wind of this years ARIA nominees, announced by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. To my amazement, my favourite folk pair Angus & Julia Stone featured toward the top of the list, sharing the lead with many other amazing Australian musicians. Receiving a total of six nominations, the duo are in the running for album of the year with Down The Way, single of the year with Big Jet Plane, best group, best adult alternative album, as well as the public's pick of most popular artist and album. The nominations followed some pre-main event awards, where Down The Way won best cover art and producer of the year! I wish these lovelies all the best for award night on November 7th. Its only fair that their wonderous efforts are rewarded.
