Aussie stars like Iggy Azalea and Five Seconds of Summer might be moving overseas, but local listeners still love their music homegrown.

That’s according to a new list compiled by Triple J’s music director Richard Kinsgmill which reveals the 10 most popular albums amongst Australians in 2014.

Eight of the 10 artists on the list are local, with the only international musos being British acts, the rock duo Royal Blood and indie band alt-J.

This is a notable contrast to last year’s list, which only included one album produced by an Aussie.

Here are the chosen albums accompanied by videos of some of their best live performances. Get downloading.
