AudioCulture Classic NZ Album Readers Poll for 2023

They've reached double digits! AudioCulture Iwi Waiata, the noisy library of New Zealand music, turns 10 years old this month, with the site being launched on May 31st 2013, to coincide with the last day of NZ Music Month.

To mark 10 years of celebrating Aotearoa New Zealand music, and in a first for the website, AudioCulture has launched the AudioCulture Classic NZ Album Readers Poll for 2023. It’s time for you, the public, to tell them which locally recorded and produced album you consider to be the very best of all time.

 Aotearoa is teeming with award-winning, chart-topping, and critically acclaimed albums worthy of consideration. Or perhaps your idea of classic is something a little more seminal? Everyone who casts their vote goes into the draw to win a Thorens TC201 turntable* and $500 credit to spend, thanks to Real Groovy. There will also be spot prizes of exclusive AudioCulture merch to be won over the month.  *Terms and conditions apply

Go to the AudioCulture website to select your favourite New Zealand album from the provided list of possible contenders, or feel free to enter another of your own choosing.

Voting is open now, running throughout NZ Music Month and closing on Sunday May 28th. The number one voted album, and winner of the Real Groovy prize pack, will be announced on Wednesday 31 May.

Over the last decade, we’ve published nearly 2000 pages which document the diverse musical history of Aotearoa. Of these pages, we have just ticked over 1000 individual artist profiles, which tell the stories of solo artists, groups, and key individuals who have been change makers within the local music industry.

The other 1000-odd pages take in other crucial elements which have helped build our vibrant musical history. These include Aotearoa-based record labels – the foundations of our recorded music history – and scenes which have brought like-minded music lovers together, with our first example being jazz fan clubs of the 1920s.
