The annual Australian Music Prize – one of the most lauded awards in Australian music – has announced their shortlist for 2019 and there are some amazing records on it.

Bigger names like Angie McMahon, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds all make an appearance, though the AMP’s strength is in its ability to level the playing field.

While big names are always tempting to back, don’t forget incredible music from Amyl and the Sniffers, Ausmuteants and Ainslee Wills.

The prize is judged by a selection of musicians, journalists, and others from across the music industry. It is now in its 15th year.
