The Ten Tenors Beat You Am I To #1 On Australian Independent Music Charts

The TEN Tenors
The Music (Australia)

Venerated vocal ensemble The Ten Tenors have pulled off a stunning upset on this week's Carlton Dry Independent Music Charts, with their new full-length Our Christmas Wish storming to #1 on debut, pipping at the post Aussie idols You Am I, whose 10th album Porridge & Hotsauce picks up a still-noteworthy #2.

The pair of acts are jointly a cut above the week's next-highest new entry, which comes from Sons Of The East in the form of new LP Already Gone, which makes its debut at #7, while Darren Middleton rounds out the week's new faces with Splinters settling in at #14.

Sia's 1000 Forms Of Fear and The Waifs' Beautiful You both stay steady at #3 and #4 respectively, while last week's gold medallist, Russell Morris' Red Dirt Red Heart, eases back to #5. (The resultant shuffle knocks Courtney Barnett's acclaimed Sometimes I Sit & Think, & Sometimes I Just Sit out of the top five for the first time in its 34-week stint on the charts, settling in just ahead of Sons Of The East's new effort, at #6.)
